We've been to St. Thomas several times and have tried all the recommended restaurants on Trip Advisor and the food at Amalia was by far the best on the island. My husband had paella and couldn't stop raving about how good it tasted. I had a filet of red snapper served with a brandy sauce, topped with mussels and shrimp and loved the entire dish. The atmosphere was romantic for two but could also be a place to take your entire family. The waitress was attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the food on the menu and enjoyed talking to her. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to find this hidden gem!

Incredible restaurant with delicious food and exemplary service. We went twice in a week, and we were blown away both times. Cara, our waitress both times, was friendly, knowledgeable, and incredibly attentive. We would go back just for her, but the food it the real draw. The Zarzuela was by far the best thing in the menu and the best thing we ate all trip. The lobster pasta special was also incredible. Do not skip this place when visiting!

We found this restaurant while shopping downtown. We sat outside and it really felt like an outdoor cafe in Europe. Tapas were great and the food fresh. Paella was also wonderful. Lobster pasta was perfect.

We had a great lunch and Adam was very helpful. I had the pan seared mahi-mahi and it was delicious. My wife had the shrimp and crab cakes and said that they were wonderful. The house sangria was very refreshing. It is just 50 yards off the main street downtown. Worth a visit.
