Ate at the bar level in the sand by request. Amazing food!! Great bartender. Cheap rum sampler shots. Lovely Belgian beers by nice surprise after hinanos for weeks in the pacific. Clear night under the stars on the water. At the entrance in the shopping center is doesn't look very special but it really is a Great spot.

Food and wine was nice. We watched a beautiful sunset and enjoyed another aspect of Bora Bora. It's a nice change from eating at the resort .

We ate at several restaurants during our vacation to Bora Bora. We were told this restaurant was one of the better places to eat. It seriously took over an hour after we placed our order, and the wait staff never came over to check on us, apologize or just let us know why it was taking so long. Apparently they... More

just keep in mind that some restaurants close around the holidays for vacation since this is the low season in Bora Bora. This one was closed during my visit- end of December / beginning of January.

The St. James is the best restaurant on Bora Bora. Each meal is prepared delightfully and so delicious. The location is right out over the water by candlelight.

I was surprised to find the prices to be semi-reasonable, considering the fact that this place is rated so highly. The view is spectacular and we enjoyed a parade of Manta Rays in the clear water in front of our table around sunset. A great view of the harbor, a nearby island and beautiful sunset rounded out our visit. They... More

My husband and I had dinner here on our honeymoon. The view was amazing and the food was even better. I had the beef tenderloin with seared foie gras and black truffle mashed potatoes. My husband had mahi mahi with vanilla sauce. We both loved our meals. The beef tenderloin was my favorite. We were able to sit outside on... More

We stopped here as a recommendation from our hotel when we took the ferry into town. We were pleasantly surprised with how good our lunch was. Excellent drinks. Amazing flavors and freshness. You can walk from the ferry dock also. One of the best meals in Bora Bora.
