On a rainy night we enjoyed dinner at Restaurant St James; we had the table down on the patio and no one else was around (especially after the deck tables cleared out after the rain began)-the tuna variation appetizer/starter was very yummy. The mahi mahi was also very nicely prepared with vanilla sauce (ala tahiti style)-we also enjoyed a few tropical drinks complete with lovely flower garnishes. The shuttle pick-up was not until 630 PM so we would have missed sunset if there was one that night; think this would've been a very nice place to enjoy the setting sun. All in all very happy we tried it out!

This restaurant has a very relaxed feel to it. The staff are great, very friendly and had many conversations with us.

This was the place for the BEST cocktails in Bora Bora. No where on the island had mint except for this place. We were so impressed with this restaurant. It is not pretentious or snooty just nice food, great atmosphere and great drinks.

My husband and i ordered the tasting menu and loved every dish. The foie gras was the best item on the menu- yum! After dinner we went down to the cocktail bar for some drinks and the bartender was great. He made cocktails for us that we asked about that he had never made, he googled the recipe and made it perfectly. Then he was telling us about some cocktails he knew that we didn't and even made us complimentary taste testers.

The owner arranged taxi pick up and drop off for us and was very quick to respond via email when i was booking prior to the trip. Loved this restaurant and definately recommend it. Total spend of the night with tasting menus and many cocktails was 28,000XPF

It was a bit expensive and they took awhile to bring out our food but it was delicious when they did finally bring it to us. The view was nice too.

We had dinner here during our stay, recommended by our hotel and the food was just okay. The meka dish was much better than the Mahi mahi. The carpaccio appetizer was great.
Location is terrific and we sat right on the edge overlooking the water. The service was a little slow but that was okay - we were in no rush.
