Small Quaint Place for Dinner

Stumbled across this place while looking for someplace to eat in Christiansted. We were not sure it was open until we saw the bartended in the window waving us in. I had a very good Jambalaya, although the shrimp seemed to be a tad undercooked. My wife has a turkey sandwich with fries that was... read more

We went here on the suggestion of Mary at Hotel on the Cay and glad we did. Its right off the board walk in Christiansted, right by the government building. This is a small restaurant with not that many tables so we ate at the bar. The owner, Tom, runs the place, so he was server, bartender & everything else... More

Expected to see variety of seafood on menu but only 1 item Food average. The Pelican Cove is a fine location- but find some other place to eat

Went there for dinner. Only one other group there so it felt empty. The food was good and the service was attentive and friendly. Always found this cafe steady but nothing special and a bit high priced.

We just expected to stop in for dinner, good but nothing special. What we got was exceptional!!! The food, service and drinks were the best we've had since moving to St. Croix 2 years ago! We will definitely be going back and sharing the experience with friends!

This place is a gem. The food is amazing & it's a great space. My husband had stuffed fish. I had the "fisherman's platte." It was the best meal ever! I highly recommend! If you visit St. Croix, you should not miss Paradise Cafe!!!!

My wife and I had a quick lunch at the Paradise on a recent stop in Christiansted. I had the Philly sandwich and my wife had the Chicken Caesar salad. Each was delicious and freshly made. She also tried the Pumpkin and Sweet Potato soup, which was not so delicious, the owner said he thinks that batch of soup was... More

I'm sorry you had such a bad experience at my restaurant. The only thing I can think of is that you came during the Valentine's Jump Up when we had a waitress meltdown and I had to move from the bar to the floor and take over. If you check the rest of our reviews you will see that the... More
