Amazing sunset views and the staff was so incredibly friendly! There's a bar/lounge right next door that's part of the restaurant, where we hung out and had more drinks after dinner. It was a really fun atmosphere, and the food was excellent! Highly recommend

Anthony was our server and he provided a wonderful experience. It was cold and they provide a blanket for my daughter. The Duck was amazing and highly recommend. Wish we could have went back!

From the Moment we walked in Anthony greeted us with joy and you could tell he loved the food he had planned. We celebrated our anniversary dinner there and couldn't have been happier. Delicious food! Wanted to go twice but they book up fast!

I ate here after the sunset cruise tour and this was the best restaurant I ate at during my entire stay in Bora Bora. Service was great too! Funny how dinner came with a sunset cruise package but was better than all the other restaurants...I ate at.More

Food is really expen$ive at this place. We had the fish crusted in salt and we almost overdosed on the sodium. I can still feel the salt burn on my lips 3 days later. Staff is friendly and quick. Disappointed after all the great reviews...we read about it. Stick to the happy hour[from 5 to 6pm] and enjoy a great drink watching the sunset on the deck.More

We had a great lunch at St. James on our last trip to Bora Bora. We were able to sail right up to the restaurant, tie up to their pier, and enjoy a lovely bottle of wine and a charcuterie plate. The restaurant is a...perfect mix of French and Polynesian with a setting that can’t be beat. They have an extensive wine list and a menu that features fresh fish and more. We plan on going back on our next trip. Highly recommended.More

The food is out of the world fresh! The owner and our waiter are really friendly. We had the lobster which were fresh out of the water and the sear tuna and 5 different deserts all of them are amazing! See pictures for more.
