Had a lovely special birthday lunch at James Street South. Calm atmosphere with excellent service. As always the food was fabulous and the Souffle is to die for! Never - Ever take this off your menu.

I went to James South Street last wednesday. The food was very good, but they brought the food very quickly. We arrived around 8 pm and left around 9.30 pm and we had a 5 course dinner. The was fine!
