We are here on 24th August on recommendation from our whale tour guide. We really enjoyed our evening, the food is very well cooked and presented. The flavours are full and the chef knows how to balance the flavours. Good wine list and good choice of deserts. Nice waterside tables as well as indoors. Take time to look at the... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant last evening. The ambiance and the employees were truly lovely. We sat outside on this deck overlooking the water. During dinner our waitress called us over to the edge to see an incredible, huge manta ray swimming below. The food and the presentation were magnificent. I had the... More

We had lunch at St James. The food was very good and presented in beautiful French style. The prices were average to maybe slightly high for lunch but I believe the menu is the same for lunch and dinner. There were several options to choose from for the dinner menu with two set menus to select from. The service was... More

We had a lovely time and a spectacular meal last week. This lovely restaurant is located in a small strip mall but don't let the setting fool you. This place serves excellent food, beautifully plated and delicious. We would have eaten there more often had we more time. A definite five star meal.

We were there for lunch and were surprised by the attention to detail demonstrated by both the waitress and the cook. The dishes we had were based on fresh, high quality ingredients transformed...

My family and I had dinner and lunch at St James during our recent visit to Bora Bora. Its well known that the exquisite aesthetic beauty of the island is not necessarily matched in cuisine. That said, St James was a wonderful exception. Located in Vaitape just north of the Super U market in a shopping center complex, which can... More
