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.

This was a beautiful restaurant; our table was over looking the water. The menu selection was excellent; too bad unordered the wrong thing. The dessert made up for it though (carnival). The service was average at best - I had to keep getting our waiter.

Melissa, Something about over looking the water just adds an ambiance to your meal, doesn't it? Thank you stopping in to see us. We do apologize if the service left something to be desired, and we can certainly emphasize the importance of checking on our guests. You should never have to seek out your server. We hope you'll stop in... More

Wow, if you have not been to Havana Blue in St. Thomas, you have not been to St. Thomas. Every time I travel to the Marriott or Ritz, I always make it a point to eat here at the beginning of my trip and at the end of my trip, I made the mistake the first time and saved it... More

A great unique restaurant with a Blue Martini and some excellent tapas and full menu items get there before sunset and ask for a table near the open window area. They have a nice bar and a great atmosphere.

We knew from previous reviews that this restaurant was going to be on the expensive side, but it is right on the beach and the view is to die for if you get there around sunset. The restaurant itself is quite beautiful with lots of white lacy curtains and, of course, lots of blue lighting accents. It makes quite an... More

Everything here is delicious and up scale. It was kind of pricey and the service was slower than everywhere else on the island. All in all I'd give it an 8 out of 10.

Bad service and poor attention to timing of food has made this once-favorite a place to miss, especialyl given the cost. Too bad, as it used to be a fantastic spot.

On our last night in St Thomas, while staying a the Marriott Vacation Club/Cove, we went to Havana Blue for dinner. A beautiful night, with occasional showers, but a fine sunset.

Located in the Marriott Morningstar Beech Hotel on the Frenchmen's Reef peninsula. An outdoor restaurant on a large covered covered veranda on the ocean. Though the veranda was in nicely lite with blue lights, the ocean was not, so it was inky black. There is a South Beach DJ music track playing loudly in the background over a poorly designed...
