I visited Blur Orchid with a large group so the restaurant was closed to the public. Upon arrival, I was impressed with the grounds where the restaurant is located. Just the walk to the front door was impressive. The view of Magen's Bay from the observation deck is gorgeous so try getting there just before sunset. As for the food... More

Try this place for a good evening out. The food was good, particularly the mussels. The service was excellent and a good wine selection

A beautiful, relaxing evening at The Blue Orchid! Restaurant. It is located in a restored Great House overlooking Magen's Bay! Go early and walk around the gardens first then enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant. No view at night because the restaurant is on the north side of the island overlooking Magen's Bay. Excellent food and a great wine... More

Went early for drinks and appetizers and it was so good we decided to stay for dinner. That ended up being one of the best decisions we've ever made. Everyone's meal was amazing! If you're visiting St. Thomas don't miss this great restaurant. You won't be disappointed. It's a small dining room with excellent views, but the high quality food... More

Start with a walk thru the gardens and up to the observation deck. Breathtaking to look in every direction. The food was excellent and the service as well.

We caught a hazy sunset upstairs on the balcony. It was windy, but a great view of Magens Bay! Great cocktails! We didn't have dinner here, so can't comment on the food.

One of our favorites. Food excellent, views outstanding. Gardens worth a walk through. Go before sunset to catch views.

My husband and I were able to visit this restaurant last week. We had one of the best meals of our vacation here. I had a Caribbean Martini as a cocktail and my husband had a Belgian beer. I had a caesar salad and tuna tartare to start. My husband had a soup that was on special and shared the... More

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 look out - and if you get there early as... More
