Nice place. Good food

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

Walk the extra block to find the Paradise, its worth it. The owner is genuinely friendly and the cook (whose been cooking forever, apparently) has a special touch. My wife said the spinach ravioli was the best she ever had. My mani mahi was perfectly done, and the rice had a wonderful surprise flavor. Really nice ambiance. On our list... More

We were actually looking for another restaurant to stop at for lunch in Christiansted when we stumbled upon the Paradise Cafe. What a pleasant surprise. Pumpkin sweet potato soup was excellent as well as the Greek salad. The atmosphere was clean and quaint. Service was very good. Homemade food, nice atmosphere, great service and reasonable prices--we will return!

We were a little concerned going in because there were no other patrons, but do not let that dissuade you from eating here. The food was excellent and the owner was very personable and friendly. I had a hamburger and all the fixings were very fresh, friend had the salisbury steak with mashed potatoes...both were excellent!

As soon as you walk in, you'll notice a lot of LOCALS eating here, which is always a good sight. Tom, the owner, seems to personally know almost all his patrons. I recommend highly.
