“Tropical serenity meets cutting-edge chic.” These descriptive words spoken by co-owner, Nicole Horstmeyer, best describe the company vision of Blue Shore Grill which owns and operates the Frenchman’s Reef & Marriott Morning Star Beach Resort’s hottest restaurant – HAVANA BLUE. Overlooking Morning Star Beach, HAVANA BLUE is by far the island’s most sought after restaurant. The stunning décor features an eclectic mix of New York, South Beach and the Caribbean style to create a hip, yet approachable vibe. The restaurant’s cuisine combines authentic Cuban and Latin dishes with exotic spices and tangy sauces from the Pacific Rim. All of this, combined with the restaurant’s oceanfront location, creates a culinary experience unlike any other in the Caribbean.

Love the dessert

The food and drinks were great. We also loved the dessert, we had the baba a split, amazing. The atmosphere is great & right on the beach. During lunch you can people watch if you like or they have seating away from the bar for a more intimate experience. The hubs and I went back at night and... read more

My husband and I came to Havana Blue for a date night, and were left feeling... Unspecial? It's hard to describe. It was an absolutely beautiful location, but upon closer look, it was weathered, grimy, and just dirty... The food was similar - just lackluster. Would give it a second try, but there are too many other great places to... More

We had dinner here last week on our vacation. It was a wonderful dinner from start to finish. The miso Sea Bass was amazing. The service was spot on. You will not be disappointed.

Havana Blue has a beautiful open air view of the bay. The food is best described as pacific rim with a Cuban flavor. The food is thoughtful and creative. Lots of fresh fish on the menu. The service is outstanding.

Food was excellent! Ambiance too. We had hiccups with the service but the view and the location made up for that. If you want to have a nice dine experience at the Marriott resort try it out.

We decided to try Havana Blue the last night of our group/friends vacation...we made the right choice.

After nearly been seated in the servers galley, I was moved to a great seat near the water. Dining alone can sometimes be a dicey experience but usually the nicer restaurants do a great job. Unfortunately this was not the case at Blue Havana. After being rushed through the menu and ordering, I waited almost 15 minutes for my drink.... More

It's upsetting to hear your experience fell short of the mark we set for ourselves, Jessica, but we appreciate you dining with us during your stay. When you're disappointed, you don't want excuses -- you want an apology, and it sounds like we missed a chance to give you that. Still, we hope you had a wonderful stay in St.... More

This place is gorgeous. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly, a first for the island. The out door setting is breath taking with the swaying curtains and the blue lighting. Service was on the slow side especially closing the check. Why does a server ruin a great meal by taking too long for check closing? Makes no sense. Very expensive... More

Prices are high and the food portions are small. View is awesome, but when you leave hungry, it isn't worth it. The Sandbar on the otherhand is excellent for happy hour and the service from Kim and Ashley was excellent.

Karen, we pride ourselves on offering an exceptional meal. That requires the finest ingredients, which is in turn reflected in our pricing. But there is much more included in cost of a meal with us, such as our superb waitstaff and our breathtaking ocean views. We're sorry if you left feeling unfulfilled.

Havana Blue is one of the best restaurants in St Thomas! Amazing tastes and service. Our waitress Donna was the best. She truly made our weeks visit to Morning Star at the Marriott Resort.
