Description: “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.

Food was -amazing- Get there for an early dinner so you can enjoy the view before nightfall. Service was great. Pricey, but worth it for an evening out.

The service here was stellar and it had a south beach kind of vibe. The food was great albeit a tad expensive but it's like that all over the island. I would recommend. But be prepared to sweat a bit, aside from the ocean breeze there was very little ventilation.

We went to Havana Blue our first night on St Thomas and went back two more times! The menu is not extensive but they offer a variety of high-quality seafood. It's located right on the water, so you can't beat the view and the service is outstanding.

Absolutely beautiful place. We had a table overlooking the beach at sunset...awesome view. Our waitress Christine was amazing and fun and so accommodating. The food was fabulous and even the owner came over with complimentary glasses of champagne. They made our anniversary something truly wonderful and memorable.

We had our reception here and from start to finish it was amazing! The management team followed up on every request immediately and made all of our dreams come true. Our friends and family loved everything! The staff were friendly and fun. I would definitely recommend this place, if you are getting married!

Where to begin? With reservations made the day before for our party of six, we walked into an almost empty place and were seated at the least scenic table where three of us had our back to the ocean. I should have known things were going down hill from there. The service from our waiter was forgettable at best. Empty... More

It's more than a little surprising to hear about your experience, Eric. It sounds nothing like what a night at HAVANA BLUE should be like, and we want to apologize for disappointing you. There's no excuse for inattentive service, but it is the exception to the rule here. We'd love another chance to show you what dining with us is... More

We just came back from Saint Thomas and one thing I can tell you...NEVER AGAIN we will go back there. The only 2 good things in Saint Thomas are the beaches (Snorkeling) and Havana Blue, Travis is the best host in that restaurant, dinner and desserts are the best...his coffee was a complete enjoyment of taste.

Wow. Expensive but beautiful location and exquisite food. Every course was superb and carefully crafted. Now we're spoiled in St. Thomas for our expectations.
