So glad we were able to eat here before our stay was over! Authentic island/Caribbean/Crucian food is sadly a bit hard to find on St. Croix especially Federiksted. Villa Morales is a bit of a mix of Latin and Crucian and hit the spot! Try the beef pâtés!! It's only open Wednesday, Thursday, and... read more

So glad we were able to eat here before our stay was over! Authentic island/Caribbean/Crucian food is sadly a bit hard to find on St. Croix especially Federiksted. Villa Morales is a bit of a mix of Latin and Crucian and hit the spot! Try the beef pâtés!! It's only open Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday so plan accordingly.

We stopped by for lunch on a Thursday and they were not too busy. There was another couple there who seemed to be regulars, and helped us with the menu as we were torn on what to order. They have their menu on a white dry-erase board, they have indoor seating along with open air. We ended up sharing a... More

Stopped for lunch yesterday and the place was pretty deserted, just one other couple. The menu is printed on a white board. Lots of chicken options, as well as pork and fish. We shared two huge pork chops with beans, mac and cheese, and a nice, small side salad. Main dishes were between $13 and $20. The mojitos were excellent,... More

The food was very good. Everyone commented that their conch was the best, even the locals who don't order conch for fear of disappointment. The LOVED it! Willard and Ria Hodge loved the conch. Ria Hodge has the VERY best pound cake recipe on the island. This was her grandmother's recipe. Morales has THE BEST COCKTAILS by FAR, of all... More

The owners of Villa Morales are wonderful people who treat you like family and feed you with the same heart. We had a great meal and left absolutely stuffed! Can't wait to be back on our next holiday!

We went for dinner, the food was great and reasonably priced. However, the location shown on this site was not correct. To get there from Fredericksted go to Centerline Rd and head east to Morales Dr. (just before you get to the Estate Whim on the right there is a sign). Turn right the restaurant is a short way on...

We were referred to this restaurant by two different couples from two different areas. It was great to see the menu on a dry erase board that they bring to your table. The selections were all fresh and inviting. Nothing says loving like an owner coming to your table and waiting on you. JT had a smile from ear to... More

JT and Angie are amazing cooks. This place was amazing! Great food and great atmosphere. If you need catering this is the place. They catered my wedding and did an amazing job of setting up, serving, cleaning and added deco to the wedding that made the reception area over the top amazing. Thank you to JT and Angie and their...

Recently my wife and I had our 36th Anniversary dinner at Villa Morales and let me tell you it was delicious. Wife had the conch stew with spiced rice and beans and I had roasted pork with spiced rice and beans. The service was great and the food delicious. Price was very reasonable for great food. Would we go back... More
