Visited Bella Blue on a Monday evening. 5 in our party, so a reservation is a must. Had the Fried Calamari and shrimp Remoulade for appetizers. Both were good, but portions on the small side, which we discovered was typical for the Virgin Islands. Our entrees were all very good (schnitzels and pasta dishes). Restaurant is small and cozy.

Good food but make a reservation! The stuffed chicken was delicious. Small intimate and worth every penny. Staff was very courteous!

Bella Blu is a very popular restaurant with the locals in Frenchtown, serving Austrian food as well as a variety of other specialities. Inside gets crowded and noisy, but there is outdoor seating as well. Very busy, particularly on Sunday nights when many other restaurants are closed. Reservations are highly recommended. Service can be slow but the food is good.... More

Seated quickly but a very long wait for service. Food was mediocre. They were out of everything. Tuna was overcooked and mashed potatoes were cold and dry. Maybe we just caught them on an off day but the food and service certainly don't live up to the price.

A real find. small restaurant off the beaten tourist track but easily accessible. In a safe area but not in the downtown tourist section. Maybe a half mile away. walkable or take a taxi. The restaurants caters to locals more than tourists. Its menu is Austrian so schnitzel etc. I had wonderfully fresh fish from the boat docked nearby. As... More

Ordered their snapper dinner that was sautéed in white wine, garlic and herb sauce, finished with butter and it was sooo delicious. Would go back for that same meal.

It's a weekend local favorite for breakfast. Eggs Benedict, home-cured bacon (so yummy), Belgian Waffles and bottomless cocktails. New year's day featured brunch in your jammies which was a blast. In beautiful Frenchtown, a must visit for any traveler.

We have been going to St. Thomas for over 12 years now and we had just never gone to Bella Blu. We are so sorry that we waited! It is in Frenchtown so you need to take a cab or drive. Jazz was playing, service was pleasant and relaxed, the bar menu was interesting, and the food was really great.... More

We had a very lovely dinner as a family in this restaurant! The food was delicious and even though the service was a little slow because the restaurant was packed to capacity with reservation requests being denied left and right, we were relaxed and so comfortable waiting for our meal!

St. Thomas on a Sunday night the pickings are slim unless you want a hotel restaurant. The service was good, the wine excellent, The plates are simple (Austrian) but good. All the plates came out at the same. Careful, the spicy pasta dish is 7 out of 10 spicy, 10 being call the fire department.
