Great view if you sit out on the enclosed deck area. Open air but not hot at all. All of the meals from the mahi, to the crab stuffed shrimp, to the pasta were delicious. Dessert was great. We had the chocolate cake dessert. The conch fritters and bruschetta special with apple and brie were also great! Not overpriced for... More

This is my favorite restaurant on the island, I always bring my friends who visit to eat here and it is always enjoyed by them. While it hidden on the north side of the island, it is definitely worth checking out. Parking is limited due to the nature of the island and its roads but if you call ahead and... More

A great find on the north side of St.Thomas. A group of apps ordered. Conch fritters,bistro mussels,calamari, and cervice. Each had its own personality. Conch was perfectly cooked not greasy,sauce was tangy and sweet. Bistro mussels with an awesome dipping sauce garlic white wine with diced tomato. Fresh warm baked bread. Calamari with sweet chili sauce was nice and light.... More

Loved every minute of our experience at this restaurant! The ambiance was great, live music, and a cute little table with a view of the water as the sun went down. Super friendly staff. The portions were very large and so so good! My husband said the best Mahi he had our whole trip and chicken cordon bleu was so... More

The food and presentation was absolutely outstanding. Stuffed shrimp were excellent as was the risotto. The only disappointment of the evening was that two of us ordered the spare rib special and at 6:30 pm they were all sold out. Plan to go back before we leave the island.

This restaurant keeps getting better and better. We have never had a bad meal here. Their pasta carbonara is one of the best we have had anywhere! We had the grouper special one evening and another night we had a terrific french dip sandwich - AWESOME. Contrary to a previous review the service is very good, the staff friendly and... More

We went to Northside our last meal in St Thomas. We were greeted upon arrival but once the hostess learned we did not have reservations she just sighed like we were bothering her. She soon realized that another group that had a reservations did not show up we were able to get their table. Thank goodness. Our server was good... More

This is my second review for this restaurant. I don’t usually do two, but the change has been so dramatic that I felt it was only fair to those thinking of going there. We had friends with us, and since it was their first time to St Thomas, we wanted to take them to our usual dinning places. Our past... More

Food: I had never had conch fritters before, so hard to compare the quality in general. They were very tasty, my husband loved them, but not quite to my palate. That's okay, I wanted to try something new! He had bruschetta with tuna sashimi as an appetizer, and it was good but we would probably try something different next time.... More
