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

My husband needed a break while I shopped a little. Someone had recommended another local restaurant (name starts with G). We stopped at this little outdoor cafe and experienced fine dining! The server was fantastic! The owner mingled with guests and took personal time with us as we dined! I had fresh Mahi and my husband had fresh Grouper! Both... More

This Spanish restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The location is picturesque, down one of the little alleys in downtown Charlotte Amalie. That being said the location is also tourist rip-off central and most of the restaurants we found there had terrible food. This was the major exception. The food was excellent. I had a perfectly cooked piece of Hake in... More

My wife and I had just arrived in STT and were wandering around downtown looking for a place that wasn't serving burgers. Amalia Cafe is absolutely phenomenal...no indoor seating, tucked away in the alley of the old warehouses right on the waterfront. The paella was the best we have had and we've tried a lot all over the world! The... More

It is tucked in the alley next to palm passage shopping right on the waterfront. Great atmosphere to go along with the food and service. A must when visiting downtown St Thomas.

My boyfriend surprised me with a night at Amalia Cafe during our stay in the VI and were definitely not disappointed. It was fantastic! We went mid-week in the 'off season' just before 6pm so we virtually had the place to ourselves. The place is awesome! The sangria is wonderful and even my BF loved it. But OMG the food.... More
