“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.

We had a lovely dinner our first night in St. Thomas at Havana Blue. We both enjoyed our dinners, drinks and cocktails very much. The service was very good.

Food was good, server was nice and made good recommendations on the food, and didn't get upset when our group grew from 4 to 12! Very accommodating.

We have eaten all over the world. This was one of the top 5 meals ever. Hubby says he does not remember the other four now. Dillon is the best waiter! We could have lived on the steak taco appetizer alone. Ahhhmazing!

Saved this place for the last day . Heard it was good but pricey. There again it depends on what you eat here , easily a $200 dinner for two if you have drinks but very well worth it. Great ocean views . Great fast service. Dress shorts and a nice shirt is all you really need.

Perched high over looking the sea, this restaurant is a must see if you are looking for fine dining in St. Thomas. The service is very personable and cordial. The food is very fresh.

We were staying at the Marriott in St. Thomas and decided to give this place a try. Sooooooo glad we did. Not a large Dinner menu per se but the food we ordered was terrific and quite frankly, the best on the island we had. Both my and my wife's dishes were excellent and prepared exactly the way we ordered... More

Open air fine dining restaurant that is right on the beach. Food was verygood, best we had on the island. We had the Skirt steak and Mahi Mahi and the portions were plentiful. The key lime creme brûlée for desert was delicious too.

The ambiance was magnificent, bathed in name lighting with open windows and air to hear the crashing surf of Morningstar Beach. We had the tasting course, and it did not disappoint. Everything was well prepared and deliberate, but I think the dinner was so deliberate, it became drawn out and we were somewhat fatigued midway through. Because of that fact,... More

We stopped in for an early lunch and had a really nice meal. You cannot beat the view and our waitress, Donna, was great. The only downside would be the giant tree that sheds leaves everywhere. Because of this, the furniture always looks dirty or messy. It is a simple fix, but we felt it definitely took away from the... More
