Great west indian cuisine

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

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
