Best restaurant on the island. The shrimp with curry sauce and jasmine rice was so delicious. The fresh coconut milk and the right blend of spices made it taste like perfection.

We thought this restaurant was very good. A van met us where our hotel shuttle let out. It was a bit of a ride to the place, but we saw the most spectacular sunset on the way. Drinks were considerably cheaper than at our hotel, the St. Regis, and the meals were very good. It was a nice change from... More

The restaurant has nice location on the water and is walkable from the pier. It is not a scenic walk but it is good to see what the area looks like when you are not in the usual tourist area. The service was good and people friendly. The food was delicious and creative but rather expensive.

This was our favourite restaurant in Bora Bora. The food was so amazing we went back a second time. Both times were just as good as the other. Staff were friendly, great atmosphere and transport was quick and on time.Would definitely return. Loved it!

This restaurant had very good food and a nice atmosphere. The presentation of the food was good, service was fine, and the tables on the dock had a great view of the ocean. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. The drinks are large and it was actually difficult to finish without the help of my husband! This restaurant is worth... More

Just arrived back at our hotel after an excellent meal at Le St. James. High quality food, superbly presented, at a very reasonable price. Service could not have been better, very attentive without being overbearing.

We went here for dinner while staying at the Four Seasons. Food was excellent. Very pricey but that's to be expected at an establishment of this caliber. Would highly recommend.

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.
