We had a delicious dinner here, with excellent attentive service. This may have been our favorite meal on St. John. We sat outside and enjoyed the gorgeous view of Cruz Bay.

If you want "tourist bar food and booze", then go somewhere else......this is likely the best restaurant in St. John. The facility was clean, the employees courteous, a good menu, and the waiters know what's in the meal, and how it is prepared. The kitchen...More
