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

This was my first visit to St. Croix and I was there visiting my brother and SIL who live there. They have been to Villa Morales many times and have a friend who is all but family to the owners. We all went together and even though its on the other side and end of the island from where they... More

If you get the chance, swing by here. Food comes in a variety of locales and cuisines, but all lovingly prepared and served. This is a cherished establishment for the island of St Croix. And, as you might guess, you would be well-served to call ahead as it can be quite busy. 8^)

Villa morales has some of the best Puerto Rican food I have ever tasted! The stewed beef was so tender and flavorful. The atmosphere is relaxed and the owners are friendly and warm. I definitely recommend this place!

Conch-in-butter to die for! Johnny Cakes like no other. Other local dishes are really good! This was the first restaurant I "hit" when I arrived on island. Angie, her husband, and staff are the best. Open days are Thursday, Friday and Saturday (at least when I was there in September) .
