The food was fantastic, the watermelon sashimi was great as was the bang bang shrimp. The drinks were perfection! The staff there, Bruno and Patrick made the BeachSide Cafe all the more wonderful. We were lucky enough to see the amazing sand castle Bruno and Patrick ( and guests) made and it was impressive! Would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. (... More

Being a frequent visitor to St. Croix, I am asked frequently back home in New York City: "We're going to St. Croix, can you recommend good restaurants?" I have eaten all over the island and The Beach Side Cafe at the very special boutique hotel in Frederiksted, Sand Castle On The Beach, is my no. 1 recommendation. There is no... More

The dinner at Beach Side Cafe was by far the best meal of our vacation on St. Croix. Both my children (12 and 10 yr old) and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our all of our dishes. The service was very attentive; we asked the waitress for her recommendations, and she was friendly and knowledgeable. We then asked to... More

Another never miss place for us while on-island. Many times we may have dinner elsewhere and still return to Beach Side for Dessert!!!

The food was terrific. Service was a little slow. But the wonderful staff made up for it. We would have eaten there every day if they weren't closed Tuesdays-Thursdays.

We're used to good, fresh seafood because we live in Maine, but the quality of the imaginative seafood dishes the chef at the Beach Side Café creates far exceeded our expectations! We stayed at the inn on the property, & although we didn't eat every meal at the Beach Side Café, without exception every meal we *did* eat there was... More

This is a fine restaurant. We dined twice for dinner and once for lunch. The food and service were very good. The view is beyond compare. May I suggest the Blackened Mahi and lobster dishes. Appetizers were also very good.
