“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.

Great service, very unique but tasty dishes, location and atmosphere to die for. Located right on the beach at Morningstar. You feel like you have been whisked away to a tropical paradise. Oh wait, you are in a tropical paradise!!

Had dinner with friends our last night in St Thomas. This was a place that they had been talking about all week. The view is incredible and makes it almost a must visit. Our appetizers came out pretty quick and they were all excellent. Things somehow went wrong there. It was well over an hour from the time we finished... More

We've been here every Time we have come to St Thomas, tonight somehow they figured out a way to lose the order, took almost two hours to get the main course and then it was cold.

Reservation booked weeks ahead- still 45 minute wait. Ample serving size on tasting menu. Food average, service good. Loved sitting oceanfront. We are "foodies"- food the food good but not great.

nowservingno4, it's always a challenge to balance allowing our guests to relax and enjoy the wonderful food, drink and oceanfront atmosphere while still maintaining a strict reservation schedule. It's rare but occasionally things get behind and we want to apologize for the inconvenience this caused you. Still we hope the experience was enjoyable and memorable for all the right reasons....

We were staying at the Marriott and ate here 3 of the 5 nights. The food is fantastic. A little pricey but it's the islands and you're on vacation. Definitely worth the extra cost.

After 4 years, my wife and I returned to visit St. Thomas and the first place we chose to return to eat at was Havana Blue. This cool excellent restaurant is situated perfectly on Morningstar Beach in the Marriott property grouping. We made 6:30 reservations on a Sunday night and were glad we did as the "Blue" was very busy.... More

We had reservations and were seated along the railing overlooking the beach. We enjoyed the portabella mushroom appetizer though they were out of the white wine we wanted, we opted for martini's which were an excellent substitute. My snapper was fabulous (hubby had the same); the red wine we had with supper was excellent as was the key lime martini... More

We went to Havana Blue on Valentine's Day and it was just okay. We were already aware of the pricing and menu before we went. However we hoped it would wow us. The service was good.

We appreciate you spending Valentine's Day with us, Dreamgirl79, but we're sorry to hear it was something of a disappointment for you. It sounds like everything was wonderful except for a somewhat lackluster main course. That's certainly not a typical reaction for us, so we hope you'll consider giving us another try if you do make a return trip to... More
