ST- JACQUES  STORY

The Enchanting Origins

Welcome to the world of St-Jacques, where reality intertwines with imagination to create an unforgettable dining experience. Our journey begins with the quest to encapsulate the essence of French, seafood, and Mediterranean cuisine. What better way to represent this fusion than through the name "St-Jacques," inspired by the illustrious St-Jacques scallop, a treasure of the sea, plucked from the rich waters of the Mediterranean.

The Spectacle of Architecture

At the heart of St-Jacques lies our architectural masterpiece – a 10-meter-high, naturally bent bamboo structure that mimics the graceful form of the St-Jacques scallop shell. Crafted by the skilled hands of local Balinese artisans, this stunning creation is a testament to their age-old craftsmanship, taking shape in a mere six months. The inception of this architectural marvel began with a humble handmade maquette, which served as the blueprint for the magnificent bamboo cathedral you see today.

The architectural visionaries behind this masterpiece are none other than Abyakta Ernoult and Wayan Rena, a dynamic duo hailing from two different worlds – one, a 26 years old visionary French designer Abyakta Ernoult, the other, a Balinese craftsman with an innate understanding of his homeland’s traditions. Together, they’ve birthed an awe-inspiring bamboo sanctuary that seamlessly blends cultural diversity and artistic innovation.

Nature's Embrace

Beyond our bamboo haven, a lush oasis unfolds – an expansive garden enveloping our restaurant. We've cultivated a space where nature thrives, ensuring that the moment you step onto our grounds, you're transported to a world untouched by time. This oasis of greenery is a rarity in bustling Bali, where open-air restaurants remain a precious gem.

Our commitment is to offer each guest an unparalleled experience, one that harmonizes the magic of the Mediterranean, the allure of French cuisine, and the serenity of Bali's natural world. At St-Jacques, we're not merely a restaurant; we're architects of experiences, creators of memories, and storytellers of culinary enchantment. Come, be part of our story, and let us craft an evening you'll cherish forever.
