“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.

All of this, combined with the restaurant’s oceanfront location, creates a culinary experience unlike any other in the Caribbean.

We actually ate dinner at Sand Bar which is downstairs from Havana Blue

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... read more

Our family of 3 dined at Havana Blue in St. Thomas and it was awesome! Our reservations were at 6 pm so being one of the first tables to sit we were able to get a table right at the railing looking down on the ocean.

We didn't actually eat here but instead stopped for a night cap one evening before heading to our room. Nice place, it was very busy yet we got good service at the bar. The staff was a bit busy and really didn't have time to socialize but they were very prompt and served with a smile.

Our hostess Meghan was fantastic and recommended exactly the food dishes that she thought we would like. And the open air atmosphere was very pleasant Down at the Sand Bar, the ladies (Ashley, Caitie and Christie)took very good care of us and offered suggestions on sites to see.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in St. Thomas and really enjoyed our dinner at Havana Blue. Our service was wonderful, and the food was great. We had lobster tail and steak, both of which were cooked perfectly. And the chocolate dessert with dark chocolate almond was simply divine. The only thing we didn't care for food-wise was the mashed... More

We went here for dinner May 4th. My daughter and I had appetizers and my wife had dinner. Appetizers were ok and my wife's filet mignon was over cooked. She asked for medium and it came medium well. It was dry and not even red to pinkish inside. Highly disappointed in our visit since this place was recommended by friends... More

We're sorry to hear we didn't leave a better impression during your visit! Your meal should always be cooked to perfection, and we're sorry we let you down with your filet mignon. This was obviously an error, but we hope you'll give us another chance to prove what we're capable of. All the best, HAVANA BLUE Management More

We have been to St Thomas multiple times, and have experienced a majority of the dining opportunities that are available.

We were greeted by a friendly staff. Had a fantastic view and excellent dinner. Started with a wonderful unfiltered red wine,and asparagus soup and chile Caesar salad. For dinner surf and turf with manchego potato air, and Achiote grilled Tiger Shrimp with garlic butter mojo. We will return.
