Great Food and Views

Was here a few years ago. It's in an older timeshare/condo complex that needs to be updated but the restaurant is fantastic. Ordered the snapper with mango salsa - delicious. You can't beat the views. Water views and incredible views of Charlotte Amalie. Also a pool nearby that's only... read more

I've come here many times before and always have amazing service and food, but this last time was exceptional. I had a large group of friends celebrating mine and another friends birthday. We made our reservation about a week out and the party grew significantly as the week progressed. Liz was happy to work with us and make sure she... More

This trip was our 6 times here. Number ONE for steak dinners.Grape view overlooking St Thomas and 6 cruise ships in port. Handicapper elevators which is self service. Great piano player during dining.

This is a must-do for a sunset dinner overlooking the harbor. The view of the water and the sunset is a sight to behold. The food is beyond anything I had had on the island. The staff are very accommodating making suggestions for both entrees and beverages. It is a very quiet, calm place to enjoy and delicious meal.

the first night we had a wonderful experience, every one was friendly. our last night we decided to eat there again. My wife ordered the chicken dish. it was undercooked. I asked my server Layman to tell the chef, the chef told him that was acceptable to serve close to the bone. HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD EAT RAW CHICKEN?... More

While visiting we decided to take friends out for birthday dinner. The view was breathe taking, however the food was to and not in a good way. The lobster was over cooked and the steak was no season well.

While we typically dined at casual restaurants, we decided to go a little nicer one night of our trip. We chose Banana Tree Grille, and we are so glad we did. One again, I ordered the seafood and the rest of the group ordered steaks, and all of us were very pleased with our selections. The scallops were melt in... More

So glad we went here for dinner. We went at sunset, and it was spectacular! The service was excellent and the dishes were quite good. You must have the Gorgonzola bread--sinfull! The steaks were very tasty and the breast of duck was also very good. The desserts were great. Try the key lime pie--so wonderful! It's one of the pricier... More

Nice view of Cruise ship dock, not downtown Charlotte Amalie. Quite small, intimate feel. My dinner was ok, but the fish disappointing. Hard to judge service when you travel alone and are in your 60's. Made a seperate visit for the dessert !! I guess they were meant to be shared, because they are large and pricey. The carmelized banana... More

Food, service and atmosphere was good. A bit pricey! The drinks were skimpy. View was nice and great open air restaurant. There are other local places that you can get similar menu and views for less $$$. The piano player was a nice touch
