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.

Christine was our BEST waitress on our trip to USVI! Her knowledge of wine was fantastic! The best wine of our trip also! She also knew the menu and specials! Sorry this review has taken so long to post! May 2014 trip! Can't wait to go back! Ask for Christine you won't be sorry!' Tom & Vicki

We probably had one of the best meals ever at this restaurant. Each course was not only delicious but unique in presentation and taste. Our first course was crab and shrimp in rice paper, the salad was the most unusual Caesar I've ever had (but wonderful), and the sea bass the best ever-fresh and cooked to perfection. We were part...

My second review for this restaurant. The setting / view is as good as it gets! Top notch in every category. We started with Bocadillo Lettuce Wraps and Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice shared with the table and praised by all. we had two different main courses, Miso Sea Bass and Mahi Maho Mahi. Both were excellent, super fresh ingredients and... More

We had the pleasure of dining here twice during our visit to St. Thomas. Both times the restaurant more than met our expectations. The first dinner was a group of 21 the evening of my wedding. Havana Blue took great care of us and was brought up by several of our guests as one of their highlights of the trip.... More

I was married at the Marriott and had my cocktail reception at the sand bar. Everyone on staff was amazing. The drinks and the food had people talking for days! They went out of their way to ensure we were happy! Rob and Jeff are fantastic. Can't wait to return.

We went here for dinner. My daughter called and reserved a table for us. We did not get the time we asked but got something within 30 minutes of the time we asked.

The place is quite expensive. But, you only live once. Had the steak. It was good, but I have had better. My partner had the seafood special. She said it was delicious. Again, quite pricey. If you go, expect to shell anywhere from $150 - $200 for dinner for two.
