At the suggestion of a local shop owner, we tried this "local" place. Very good food and generous portions. Reasonable prices too. The server was very friendly and attentive. We will eat here again.

We tried this restaurant while on vacation in St. Thomas. I ordered the Jerk Wings with sides of potatoe stuffing, cole slaw and steamed cabbage. The wings were delicious, moist, well cooked and spiced just right. All of the sides were good too. I ate every bit of my food. Try this restaurant if you like Jamaican cuisine. You can't... More

This restaurant is always our first stop when we come to St. Thomas. Coming into the port we are always anxious for authentic Caribbean food. This restaurant is in the back streets, not on the main tourist route, but well worth the visit. When we have been there it is usually just a few patrons in the place, but do... More

We had to search a bit for an actual Carribean restaurant by the ocean front shopping, but we were so glad we found Trenchtown! It was great!

We dined at Cuzzins next door for lunch AND we had take out in our hands already but I couldn't resists me some jamaican food. Walked in and... More

This authentic place, just a few blocks back of the heavy tourist area of St. Thomas but well worth the search, is terrific. It has all the expected local delicacies (goat, chicken, salt fish, oxtail...) with the usual choice of side dishes. But what's unique about it is that as you sit there over lunch (not usually in a crowded... More
