Great find

We had dinner last evening . The waitstaff was very good and pleasant. Our dinners were excellent and the portions were more than we could finish. A great find. Tom & Jane

We ate brunch at the bar to kill some time before heading to the airport. Bella Blu was a wonderful haven between the ferry and the mad crush of the airport. I am so happy we ate there rather than heading straight to the airport, where we may have starved! ;^) Our bartender was friendly, engaging, and accommodating, and the... More

We ate our last meal here prior to heading back to Chicago. They were serving brunch at the time but they did have sandwich and salad options. We shared a delicious salad and each of us got a panini that were yummy. Our waitress happened to be the one we met the previous night at The Pie Whole that is... More

We ate here our last trip out back in Janaury and were amazed. We had 8 people go and everyone loved what they ordered. The pasta and schnitzel dishes were especially good. This is in Frenchtown and is a must-visit.

Bella Blu is located in the Frenchtown area of St. Thomas. It was our first time there. We went with friends who have gone there many times. The restaurant is small, so make a reservation. Also parking can be an issue in the area, especially if their is a ball game going on. We all had a variety of dishes.... More

We enjoyed a great meal for Sunday brunch. We were with some locals from the island and clearly this is a popular spot with many locals who were surrounding us. Need I say more for a recommendation?

We have vacationed on the island for 15 years and always done at least once at Bella Blu; unfortunately we won't be going back. Service was so rushed that check came as some of us were still eating. My favorite dish, the Linzer, had no flavor compared to past years when the Gorgonzola flavor was wonderful. They were out of... More

We usually love our dinners @ Bella Blu but the new chef has a very heavy hand with garlic and salt. My shrimp scampi had way too much garlic and my husband had to remove his snapper from the sauce since it was so garlicky. Hope they make adjustments soon, since for 8 years we loved this restaurant.

We visit Bella Blue each time we come to St. Thomas. It has always been excellent. This trip was a bummer because the food was not good. We started with the yellowtail ceviche. It was tasty, but the texture was like mush. It came in a romaine lettuce leaf and did not look visually appealing at all. My husband loves... More
