We had 2 different experiences here. First time we enjoyed our lunch and promised ourselves we'd return since it was so close to our condo. Second time was Sunday brunch, and we had to leave because there was nothing on the menu I wanted to order, and the chef refused to work with us. They weren't THAT busy, and our... More

We ate here twice during our short visit to St. Croux and both lunch and dinner, were super good. I had an arugula salad with goat cheese which was out of this world and hubby had a terrific crab salad sandwich that we shared because it was so tasty. The dinner we ate there with a friend was great too... More

Service is incredible (ask for Rita!) outdoor dining by the sea. VERY talented Chef that can blend flavors perfectly (try the rack of lamb and the tuna tacos!)

A perfect spot for a fun and festive lunch while sightseeing the island. The outdoor patio is covered, and looks right out on a calm and pretty Frederiksted beach. The atmosphere is relaxing and cool. The food is very tasty, served by a friendly staff. There is free WiFi, which might come in handy if you are staying on other... More

Beach Side Cafe was a happy find. We were there at an odd time of day and still had plenty of good choices for meals. I ordered the Thai salad with Bang Bang Shrimp. It was excellent. The vegetables were varied, fresh and delicious as was the dressing. My husband and son were pleased with their orders, too, but, after... More

Stopped in for a late Sunday brunch. Great food and friendly service. Croissant French toast? Who would have thought. But a nice stopping point. Recommended!

There was a set 4 course menu with 5 entree choices. The soups, salads, and desserts were all excellent. The prime rib, scallops, Cornish game hen, and lamb shank entrees our group ordered were nothing special. The "new" waitress had a bad attitude and tried to overcharge us $125. The manager corrected the mistake. I am usually a generous tipper(40%... More

Obviously, this Restaurant is located ON THE BEACH, on the West side of St. Croix. What a great setting for a wonderful fish dinner, and a great Sunset!
