Great atmosphere and delicious food!

Love the atmosphere with the blue lighting and very open air concept! Sat right by the water which was really nice. Had a later dinner (8pm) and the sun was long gone, so not much to see out there - but still very relaxing. We had a very friendly waitress and although the place was busy on a... read more

Service was excellent, Appetizer was very good, Atmosphere was wonderful. Drinks were very good. Main course was not at all good. Should've returned both. My wife chicken was over done and dry. My skirt steak was bland and neither was worth that kind of money. We will not ever return.

Havana Blue is a beautiful restaurant. The views are excellent especially if you get the tables that face the surf. Service is good. The food isn't as good as it could be. My snapper was a little tough and it should be very soft. The Sangria is excellent and the pitcher for $40 is worth it.

We ate at the Havana Blue twice on our trip to St Thomas. The food is a little pricy and the servings depending on what you order are a little small. I would highly recommend this restaurant

Although somewhat costly, Havana Blue provides a nice experience. The menu is interesting and the dishes are well presented. The waiter was very helpful with his recommendations and advice, and the service was several steps above "island time". Gentle sea breezes add to the ambience.

A total poser. Not Latin, not fusion, not good. We were told this is one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, and that simply isn't true. I have been to fusion restaurants that get it right, and this place gets it so terribly wrong. For our 8 o'clock seating they were out of many of the items on the... More

Very cool restaurant, our table was right on the beach:) The langoustine tostadas, sea bass entree and Brazilian Carnival dessert are amazing. My husband had a "Sea Smoke" cocktail, which was a crazyish mix of ingredients, and he thought it was delicious! This is a can't miss dinner spot!
