Nice seafood

I went there with my family and we all had a great time. We went during lunch. There is not a lot to do at night in St Thomas so it you want to stroll around start early. We had different seafood dishes and they were all good.

A touch of casual sophistication in the midst of mayhem. Sometimes you just need to find that really nice place to get away from the sameness.

I read a review on Trip Advisor and based on the high rating my party went for dinner. We were not disappointed. It's pricey but so well worth it. The fish stew was phenomenal. Just walking down Palm Passage we felt as if we were in Spain. The restaurant was busy but no rushing. Dress is casual as the seating... More

We had lunch here after having refreshments at the Amalia Cafe bar in Palm Passage, it is such a wonderful respite from the noisy waterfront and the lush greenery growing up the brick walls is gorgeous, comforting, and cooling. Our waitress was pleasant and very friendly, however when we were being seated she asked if we'd like to start with... More

The food was wonderful and very authentic! The Zarzeula was delicious. Thank you Kara, our server, for recommending it! Service was great. Best meal of our stay. Sad we were leaving next day and couldn't eat there again.

Not many restaurants on island are consistently good, this one has been for over 10 years. Good service, refreshing Sangria, fresh ingredients and most or all quiet!

Amalia Cafe is located in a lovely alley filled with greenery. It is clean, the food is wonderful and the service is friendly and helpful. We sat outside, shaded and under ceiling fans. We watched the tourists walk by, perfectly content with great food and wine.

We have been coming to St Thomas for over 7 years, and will not miss dinning there at least once. Their Gazpacho is one of the best and should not be missed along with their Key lime pie..but all the food is great. What is even better is the staff- friendly, knowledgeable, and Helga is the best. I would not... More

The location has alway detoured us from stopping here over the years but yesterday we decided to give it a try and we WILL BE BACK SOON! From the moment we walked into the establishment the service was perfect. The food was out of this world. I had the Catalina salad and my husband had the Blackened Lobster salad. We... More
