One of the highlights of our trip to St James was sunset cocktails at The Cliff. Friendly staff welcomed us and we had a great table up in the lounge bar to watch an incredible sunset. Highly recommend!!

Its $285bds per head for a 2 course meal without drinks. We came back this morning and ate at the cliff on Friday night, the bill was $800bds or $400us for 2 of us. The view is sensational but the food was sadly average.
