This cafe is located in one of the many beautiful passage ways in St. Thomas. A great and clean environment. The pizzas are delicious. Staff is very friendly.

The food was the best we found on our week's stay on St Thomas. Everything was over the top! Carl, our waiter, makes dining a fun experience. Make sure to have the marinated pears with ice cream - without a doubt the best dessert I have ever had. Enjoy!!

Food was good! A bit over-priced for my taste, but good none-the-less! The maitre de took down the wrong information for our reservations so I was glad that I double checked! The sauces were nice and spicy and the food was prepared in a timely manner!

On a recent trip to STT we walked by this cafe in a nice passage way. As we walked by we noticed that the food smelled great and the place looked nice. We decided to add it to the invisible list of possibilities. Within 15 minutes of walking down the road we found ourselves back at the cafe in a... More

We usually stop here for lunch and get the Chorizo followed by the excellent Paella and terrific sangria. A nice shady stop for people watching when you have had enough beach time.

We visited twice during our stay. The first time was on a quiet weekday evening. We had calamari and asparagus salad to start with and ordered Paella and zarzuela. They were all great, very delicious. I had a glass of sangria and liked it a lot. We finalized our dinner with creme brulee (spanish version) and cinnamon pear. They were... More

While at port on a cruise, my wife and I had lunch at this restaurant after a morning of nearby shopping. We could not have been more pleased with this choice. Service was outstanding and the outdoor dining in the quaint, historic downtown area make for a perfect setting. Wine choices were great; and the gazpacho is some of the... More
