Great food, great service

Very nice view overlooking the harbor. The reviews in the guide books were accurate; this was one of the best restaurants in St Thomas. Everything was ala carte.

Located on the property of Blue Beards Castle Hotel this place has remarkable food and service. A little pricy but a wonderful experience and the evening view of the harbor is spectacular. Have been here several times and have never been disappointed. Always a good idea to call ahead for reservations..

this place has a beautiful view of the harbor! The service was good and attentive. But the serving size was very small. I expected it to be expensive and it is but for the money I spent I expect to get a good size dinner. I was not impressed with this place. We stayed at blue beards castle.

This restaurant sits at the top of a mountain overlooking the main harbor. The view is awesome at night because of all the lights dotting the mountain side as well as the boats in the harbor. The food is superb. The staff was very accommodating and gracious. The lobster was fresh and tasty. Great choice for a special evening.

It has been three years since we were in St. Thomas but we remembered how much we enjoyed the Banana Tree Grille. So on our first night it was an easy choice. It's interesting driving up to Bluebeard's Castle. There are a number of things at the top of the hill: a hotel, and a couple of Restaurants. The view... More

This was my first experience eating at the Banana Tree Grille in St. Thomas on the property of Bluebeard's castle. Nice quiet casual dining setting with linen tablecloths and napkins overlooking the bay in Charlotte Amalie. The large windows surrounding the restaurant on three sides slide open to create an open air atmosphere. Evening breezes wafted through the dining room... More

Service was efficient and good. Beautiful views. More casual feel than Oceana and children seem to more embraced at Banana Tree. They have a beautiful children's menu and a pretty good wine list.

We had a group of 8 and the service was probably the best on the island; we all know about island-time. This is suited for adults and families with older kids. The view is very nice above the harbor and the food was also very good. The steaks were done nicley and the fresh fish was good. The specialty breads... More
