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 have written much better reviews in past years about Havana Blue, so it's hard to reverse course, but it's necessary to do so.... We've been going to HB every year for about the last 6 years. It has always been a very hip and cool spot to be sure. On this visit, we suffered a few fails from the... More

William, it's a surprise to hear you've noticed any changes at all, as we worked hard to remain the same restaurant our guests have loved for years and, like you, make a point of visiting again year after year. It's unclear exactly what happened on your last visit to put a damper on the experience (though we're very glad your... More

Havana Blue is located in the Marriott-Morning Star. We are a group of four couples, and decided the first night of our stay, to utilize the resort facilities and chose Havana Blue - the menu looked good, and the location made it handy. We had interviewed throughout the day, for a place to go on the second night of our... More

Cheers, MGDMN, for the five stars and lovely recommendation! It sounds like you enjoyed the Sapphire Martini last week. It's one of the most unique and decadent treats we offer, but it's tough to beat that sunset view. Glad you got to enjoy both. Come back and see us whenever you're in St. Thomas!

HB offers a very nice setting right on the beach, second floor so you can hear and see the waves breaking, interior lighting is dim but its all part of the ambiance. We had a table of six without reservations on a Sunday night which did not pose a problem but the restaurant was completely full by 8 pm. Food,... More

It's rare but always disappointing when we hear from about a lackluster experience like yours, Paniolo11. We're thrilled your Miso came out perfect and tasted wonderful, but it's upsetting that all of your companions were unimpressed by their steaks. Even worse, it sounds like you were unable to speak with a server about this. We want to apologize and assure... More

We spent the day deep sea fishing and came back with some fabulous fish. We were told that sometimes the resorts will prepare it for you for a fee but they're not always pleased to do so. Within an hour of getting off the boat, we took our catch to Havana Blue (we stayed at Morning Side). The chef was... More

There's nothing like the flavor of fresh caught fish, Cindy, and it was our pleasure to prepare yours for you! Thank you for the kind words and wonderful recommendation.

One of the highlights of our vacations is enjoying different foods at different restaurants. We had been to Havana Blue on our last trip to St. Thomas 5 years ago - and it was excellent then, too.

This restaurant is located on the beach. You hear the crashing waves, which is wonderful. Although the food wasn't bad, it was nothing to write home about and the price tag was very high. What we disliked was that the restaurant was half empty and the empty tables were simply not made up. It wasn't cozy. The Pinot Grigio we... More

KimberlyRooijakkers, as a high-end restaurant, we believe in offering our guests something truly exceptional for their money. Naturally, it's upsetting to hear we missed the mark for you. Allowing a guest to leave disappointed is not our way. Typically, we show and pour your wine at the table when you have purchased a bottle, but if you were indeed certain... More
