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

We decided to try this restaurant on the advise of another couple. We had been to the island many times, but never tried this restaurant. It was very good. We went for an early dinner. My husband and I ordered different entrees and were both very happy with the food. There was plenty of food and very tasty. Price was... More

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Villa Morales! We arrived for an early dinner one day with ravenous appetites, as we were told that Villa Morales serves some of the very best local food on the entire island. Very best indeed!! My partner ordered Angie's conch in butter & garlic and it was incredible....just so tender and... More

Just returned from a week on the island. Dinner at Villa Morales was at least as good as some other restaurants that were twice the price. The waitress was very helpful-she warned us off of the fried fish and let us know some of the desserts were brought in. Our group had Mahi, goat, fried chicken and mussels and everyone... More

Our party tried the conch, goat and mahi. All the dishes were truly excellent. Such an excellent meal and its a small family run restaurant. Kudos - we are definitely returning again on this same trip.

A little out of the way, but a very popular restaurant. Everyone on the island knows where it is so finding it shouldn't be hard. Make a reservation if you think it will be busy. We've been there three times during our several vacations on the island. The first time was with a party of 12 and the service was... More
