This little restaurant is nestled down a quiet side passage off the main shopping drag in Charlotte Amalie.the personal pizzas are wonderful but large enough to be shared by two. Great salads and light lunch dishes. Service was friendly and efficient. We've been there a couple of times and have no complaints.

I have never been disappointed with my meal at this restaurant! As always, they provide a beautifully presented plate of food that not only looks appetizing and appealing but tastes great! The cafe is located in Palms Passage, which is one of the most beautiful sites in downtown Charlotte-Amalie. It is family owned and Maynard and his wife are the... More

Amalia Cafe served the best food we had on St. John or St. Thomas. Located in a quaint courtyard out of the hot sun. The menu and specials are very interesting and the presentation is lovely. And, of course, the seafood is fresh. Worth what you pay for lunch or dinner. Good service as well. Loved it.

We were somewhat disappointed here. The food was good, not great. The service was definitely a low point. Our server was rude and not at all friendly. We went for lunch when the place was pretty empty. It was a nice location. Not sure we will go back.

Love love love, to go to this place. We always go in the afternoon for a snack and the sangria! We try and never miss going to eat at Amalia Cafe. Love to visit with Randolph and his beautiful family. Great place to people watch as well.

This is the most amazing New World Spanish Restaurant I have ever eaten in. It is so good that we make a special point of stopping in St Thomas for a night on our way to the BVI, just so that we can have dinner at the Amalia Café, and then we stop again for lunch on the way back... More

I recently visted Amalia Cafe to celebrate a friends birthday. There are many restaurant choices in the area but I am so glad that we chose to dine at Amalia Cafe. The decor is unique and charming but the thing that caught my eyes were the way the blue and white tile were displayed here and there on the floor.... More

We had a little bit of trouble finding the place but once we did we were not disappointed. The food was delicious! From the chorizo mussels and seafood chowder to the paella, lamb, and grouper my table was in a food coma. Very expertly cooked with a knowledgable staff. We loved it and were so happy we found the place.... More

Excellent food and service in St. Thomas. It is one of my favorite restaurants on the island and I try to visit there often.
