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.

I was on business for the week and ate there four times during the week. The food quality was excellent and prepared perfectly. The Sea Bass and the steak was superior. The sides were also well prepared and could be a meal on their own. The presentation of the food was also excellent. The portions were perfect size, but it... More

The one thing I was disappointed with what that I ordered the special surf and turf and was shocked to see my bill and they charged me $96!!!!!!!! I told our server that next time she should warn customers when the entree is 3x more than there other average... More

My husband and I went here on the first night of our honeymoon and we loved it! The mojito skirt steak was excellent and a very generous portion. We wished we had returned while we stayed at the Marriott that week. Will definitely go back =)

We dined at Havana Blue twice during our recent stay in St. Thomas. Both experiences were exceptional. The food was excellent, ambiance was second to none and the service was outstanding. Our server, Christine, was attentive and personable. She made our Havana Blue experience memorable. Definitely a must-try on St. Thomas!

Kris, it's such a pleasure to know we made both of your meals with us so "exceptional" and "memorable". Christine will appreciate your compliments as well! Was she your server on both visits? Lucky you. The next time you're in St. Thomas, please save a night or two to spend with us! Best wishes, HAVANA BLUE Management More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times over the years and it still has new and interesting items on the menu. The ceviche of the day was amazing! This time we had a collection of appetizers as our meal, sort of like Tapas... very good. Only thing they can improve upon is the music was a little too loud... More

Ate here on our last night of our vacation, the bar staff were attentive and made excellent cocktails. Unfortunately two gentlemen also at the bar were so drunk they could hardly stand, loud and sloppy, and a little over friendly - made worse when they told us they were Marriott employees. Our server was delightful but it was such a... More

We waited at the bar for an initial drink order for over 15 minutes before we left. It was somewhat early and not busy, but the bartenders were too busy joking around with each other to notice. We went downstairs instead. In talking with local folks, it is a common theme at this bar to receive slow and bad service.

The $44 pitcher of mojitos had at least six drinks in it, making it one of the best deals in st. Thomas. The rest of the food was great, including all of the appetizers. Don't miss the table side bananas foster!
