Great food. Great service. Very happy. New Zealand lamb was really good. Right over the water. Nice little bar and deck area off to the side as well, great place to relax after dinner

Amazing views of the bay. Beautiful full bar with sandy beach floors. The food was absolutely perfect. The tuna tar tar was beautifully plated on a slate plate. The lemon crusted Fish was beautiful and flakey. Beef tenderloin was perfectly cooked and served with crisp potato wedges.

Perfect venue for a romantic meal out and enjoying a spectacular sunset. Not cheap but a very enjoyable night. We especially enjoyed the desserts.

My husband and I had dinner at St James, the food and service were pretty good, and the view was fabulous. We had an over water table and could watch the fish swim and jump. great view but average service and food

It's no 2 on trip advisor so we went. Great service, food and view. We love the tuna and steak so as the Foie gras! They also arranged shuttle to pick us up at very low cost. The fishes underneath is fun to watch during the dinner! The food are much better than the hotel. Highly recommended!

Had an amazing view right by the water! Food was delicious...lamb and Mahi Mahi with vanilla sauces was amazing! Wish the portions were a little bit larger but we loved it. We spent around $70 US for our meal. Service was a little slow but we are on island time and it didn't bother us.

We went to the St. James for dinner last Tuesday night. Our resort, The Pearl, made the reservations, which I would suggest because it did get crowded. I had the Seared Ahi Tuna Steak and it was the best I'd ever had. Cooked to perfection, with a little Au Jus. It came with rice and a few vegetables. The portion... More
