Wish we were staying on the island so we could have eaten here more. One of the better dinners we had during our trip. Great food and a great value for Bora Bora.

Dinner was very good, service was top notch. They had very good catch of the day type meals. Drinks were very good. Much less expensive than the resorts but still pricy and worth every penny. Luxury eating for Bora Bora for sure!!!

We loved St. James. As soon as we got to the restaurant we looked over the rail and saw two giant Manta Rays swimming around. Unbelievable. Great food, beautiful location and reasonably priced compared to the resorts.

We had dinner there 3 times. Food is excellent, service delightful, ambiance tops. We found this to be one of the very best restaurants we visited in our 3 month sailing adventure in the Marquesas, Tuamotus and Society Islands. Highly recommended.

We ate here 3 times during our vacation. The food and wine are excellent as well as the service. Don’t expect the St James to be fancy, it is not, but the location and food are a great value for island prices

I'm really sorry for the lengthy delay but I just saw this now. Anywhere you want to go the store or restaurant will send someone to pick you up. It is the greatest means of transportation and it's free.
