Many French people which live here are going there for diner You can have Aperitif and/or cocktail at the bar with sand under your feet in front of the private pier. The restaurant is over the sea. The fish is very delicious. Nice waiters. Recommended

We ended our sunset dinner cruise with a stop at the St James. We were offered a limited menu of beef tenderloin & fish but each was very good as well as dessert. Would recommend.

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.
