Sangria, of course!!

Imagine what you'd experience if the best chef in Barcelona woke up on St. Thomas ...can you say "Salpicon "and "Zarzuela"? Freshest catch available creates the base for marisco magic. Plan to stay awhile in the gorgeous shaded setting tucked away in Palm Passage. And say "yes" to dessert.

Amalia is a wonderful stop in downtown Charlotte Amalie. The food is interesting, delicious, spirited, and wholesome, and the owners are gracious and dedicated to the success of this wonderful restaurant. Our waitperson this time was Kaylee, and she was really excellent, focused, and service-oriented. Thank you for another great afternoon of dining in St. Thomas. Boulder, Colorado

Very small restaurant with only outdoor seating. Beautifully decorated, a little piece of Spain in the heart of Charlotte Amalie. Good service. Good food. I don't like spicy food so was unsure about trying the gazpacho as ones I've tried before tended to be spicy. Server recommended the gazpacho saying it does not have a kick to it. Very happy...

We had a pleasant lunch break at the Amalia Cafe as a break from jewelry shopping. The restaurant is down one of the side streets (24 Palm Passage ) in Charlotte Amalie. We chose to eat outdoors as we were out of the blistering sun and we love to people watch and there was plenty of activity on the street,... More

Beleaguered by salespeople and taxi drivers as you stroll the Main Street (Droninningens Gade), getting hot, hungry and thirsty, slip into Palm Passage where you will find some unique shops as well as the charming Amalia Cafe. A generous carafe of red sangria started our meal. We can recommend the pork loin sandwiches, the Costa Rican fish dish..and especially the... More

The atmosphere was lovely, the food was scrumptious, I would definitely go again if I knew I didn't have to be served by the same girl. She was extremely informal and overly familiar, forgot our order and had to come back, just not classy. It was distracting from an otherwise great experience.

We visited Meson Amalia while walking across town, we were kind of skeptical about eating at a place without doing research first. The service by Cara was outstanding and our group had very demanding service standards. She did an outstanding job. The food was also very good, highly recommended!!!

We absolutely loved everything... The food, the staff, the relaxed dining (as it should be), and the Sangria! Can't wait to go back for dessert and more homemade Sangria
