What separates Beni Iguana’s most from other sushi bars, besides our great sushi and large fish portions, are our mussels. In fact, we guarantee you will love our mussels just as much as you will love our famous Iguana Sauce. Our Iguana Sauce was originally designed for our veggie rolls and salads, but our patrons started using it for everything else on our menu. In fact, this much sought-after condiment is quickly becoming expected by our regulars. Come in to try our savory dishes that everyone enjoys so much.

Good food and nice atmosphere.

A great place to eat in the Havensight area if you like sushi and all kinds of not raw seafood/Asian rolls or mussels, etc. The sauces are delicious. Very clean and bright and good choice of beer and wine. Service was good.

Finally made it to Beni Iguanas! Service was quick and very friendly. Our server was more than helpful in explaining dishes and giving recommendations. I guess they're very well known for their mussels. So, I had to try them- Yes, they really are that good! Can't wait to stop in again- portions were large, price wasn't too bad.

The sushi is the best I've ever had but the service was nonexistent. The muscles were a fantastic appetizer this place would be more appealing if you ordered and served yourself. The menu and cooks/sushi makers can stay.

The food and service was great! Didn't enjoy the kitchen's loud personal and inappropriate conversations. My Server had to ask them to tone it down.

I waited to be seated for lunch, and after about 10 minutes when no one acknowledged me, I decided just to order take-out. The order took about 15 minutes to make (two hand rolls), and they even charged a to-go fee. I would not return to this place.

As everyone says, you must get the mussels. Enough said. Every roll I have tried has also been fantastic, but the draw is the World Famous Mussels! You can buy the Mussel sauce and use it at home. Excellent stuff. Keeps for about a month. Casual place, nice atmosphere. They also make great Bushwackers!!

Stopped in a couple times while visiting St Thomas. The mussels are fantastic and the sushi pretty darn good too.

We were cruising, and the ship had no sushi, can you believe that?! We were thrilled to spy Beni Iguana's very near the docks. Their sushi is excellent, and the chef very personable. He is a diver, and generously shared tips on nice dive spots in St. Thomas as well as a neighboring island. PLEASE NOTE: When the menu says... More

We usually make 3-4 visits over a one month period for dinner. We have yet to have good service. I truly believe it is because the tip is included. No one welcomes you and you can expect a long wait till someone notices you are there. Sushi is wonderful.

Went here one night after all the cruise ships left. Sad outside on a nice pleasant evening and ordered some different rolls including the volcano roll which was spectacular, as were their famous mussels! We all thought the service was excellent the food great and the atmosphere was perfect!
