“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.

We ate at the Havana Blue on our last night in St. Thomas and it was a great experience. The food was excellent. The combinations of different foods made for a unique and great evening of dining.

The service was friendly and excellent until the restaurant became busy when the attentiveness decreased slightly. Ambience was very nice. The food was the downfall. Calamari was over breade and served room temperature. A theme of the dinner. Pan Argentina was nothing special and the chimichurra hummus unusual' to be complimentary. The snapper in the ceviche was over whelmed by... More

Had the surf & turf. The lobster was up to par and the steak was the best I have ever had in my life. Prices were a little high as we assumed but the ambiance and food definitely made it worth it.

We dined at Havana Blue twice this past week while vacationing at the Marriott. Our first dinner experience was excellent. Jason, our server, was very attentive and our entire experience was top notch. We returned a few days later based on the very positive experience we had had the first time. Unfortunately, the second dinner was really disappointing. Although the... More

Though we appreciate that you came back for a second visit, we're very sorry that it didn't live up to the first. Your second visit must have been a really off night for us (perhaps due to the arrival of the large group), but that's still no excuse for poor service from your server. That's something we'll address. Your initial... More

We ate there twice and thought the food and service were both very good. But, even for a resort, we find the prices to be too high for the small portions we received. The wine was especially over priced. If you order a glass, they give you a very small pour. We were disappointed with that. For that reason, I... More

We apologize if the portions here seemed too small. That's somewhat surprising to hear, as many people leave here fully satisfied, some even passing on dessert because they're too full. Our wine pours should be standard, so please accept our apologies if they weren't for some reason. We'll address this with our staff to make sure we're being consistent. Should... More
