Great Food Beautiful View

As others have commented, the food at the Blue Orchid is really terrific. We arrived before the kitchen opened (5:00), so spent a few minutes walking around the gardens. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Although there is no outdoor seating for dining, there are decks where you can... read more

Was even better than advertised!! I had the seafood ravioli, which was incredible. My girlfriend had the ribeye, which also was delicious. What makes this restaurant special is that there is not another place like it on island. The ambiance is really great - it is inside dining and although we ate there too late to appreciate it, I heard... More

Last night we were blessed with having dinner at this wonderful restaurant to celebrate my birthday. (We have been here before and it was my choice for my special day). Before we could stop gasping at the views Erin appeared to get us cocktails. We ordered special martini's, a pate plate and a cheese plate to "snack on" while having... More

Another restaurant recommended by our timeshare concierge, Joe. This was my favorite meal and dining experience on the island. It is set overlooking beautiful Magen's Bay. It is also the sight of St. Peter's Botanical Garden, a lovely spot to enjoy the flora of St. Thomas. There is an observation deck to enjoy the views and take photos of one... More

I blame the concierge at the Marriott for this restaurant not meeting my expectations. I did not realize there is no outdoor dining. I even asked that the concierge request a table outside. Not the restaurants fault though. Yes, there is a beautiful view from high above megan's bay, but it really isn't a panoramic view due to all the... More

View alone was worth it, but the meal was absolutely amazing. Our server, Erin, was attentive and offered great service. We brought our 9&11 yr old boys and she graciously offered kid friendly options. Go early to visit the observation deck and bird conservatory. Much more than we expected!

The views from the restaurant are fantastic; Magen's Bay, the outer islands... gorgeous. Our waitress took our drink order, delivered them, took our app order and sent us out to view the bay and outer islands with our drinks and to visit the aviary of parrots and other tropical birds while our apps were being prepared and before the sun...

Was not disappointed, great again! Beautiful view and great place to have a drink on the deck, overlooking the bay, enjoying the Caribbean breeze with friends! Will be back next year! The portions are big, for smaller appetites, share and get an appetizer and dessert!

The sea bass is outstanding as were the crab cakes. It is a delightful place with surrounding botanical gardens and an historic setting. It has been rebuild after destruction by Hurricane Hugo in 1989. The view is outstanding, the restaurant setting and atmosphere are super and the service was very good.
