Great fare

The best conch butter and stew goat on the island. Rice and beans and an order of fungi makes it perfect. Only open Thursday Friday Saturday but worth the wait. JT and Angie run a great place

Angie and J.T. run this restaurant with love. Local conch butter, goat stew and curry chicken dishes are done to perfection. The grilled Dolphin fish (fish, not 'Flipper'!) is moist and juicy with some perfectly subtle spices. Conch chowder is a wonderful starter, along with a West Indian pate'. End with a good flan, and drive away happy.

We almost overlooked it but glad we found our way there. The food was very well prepared and the owner was a delight.

We lived on St Croix for many years and when in St Croix, EVERYONE should try Villa Morales. Run by a local family for many years, this location is an insitution in St Croix. The family still serves each night they are open - and what an experience to treasure. We love the restaurant but love the family even more.... More

We thought we would have a quick lunch before hitting the beach. We arrived about 1pm. There were only 5 other people there and they were all done eating. After placing our order, it took about 25 minutes for our food to arrive. I had fried fish which was very good! Relaxing place friendly staff.

64 year old local establishment serving wonderful tasty food. My husband had the BBQ ribs and loved them. The sauce was outstanding & the meat fell off the bones. I had grilled Mahi-Mahi which was quite delightful. Laid back and casual.

Slow season but still devine. Menu is on a dry erase board that is brought to you. Johnny cakes are a must have. You can't go wrong with what you decide to have. We had curry chicken, BBQ chicken, & a pork dish.

We were fortunate to meet the owners - JT and Angie - at Rainbows. We had seen the reviews so we were looking forward to dining there. Open Thurs-Saturday. Excellent, authentic local seafood, and everyone was so friendly. JT was very helpful with tips for snorkeling sites, which turned out to be best on the island. Thanks!

This was my first visit to Villa Morales, although I have heard people raving about it for years. We each ordered an entree -- me, a steak, the rest of my party, the fried snapper, which is a crowd favorite -- and then shared a bunch of side dishes among us. Everything was delicious. The service was terrific -- quick... More
