very nice place. Awesome food. Excellent service. Cara did an amazing job suggesting the best food ever. Our hotel restaurant experience got bored (Marriott) so we ventured out. Excellent location and the food was authentic. We have been to Spain many times.... Tapas as well as the main dishes were excellent. Thanks for being so welcoming.

Tucked away in a breezeway passage in the old town, this is an excellent stop for lunch or dinner. All dining is outdoors. Tapas dishes are larger than in Spain and two will more than make a meal. Menu is original, food is very good. Owner Rudolph is a charming host. Wait service needs some polishing.

Absolutely one of the most consistently great restaurants in Charlotte Amalie! The calamari and garlic shrimp are great appetizers... and the blackened lobster Caesar salad special was incredible! Be sure to try this gem in Palm Passage before they shut down for a month in the summer beginning mid July!

Wondering area downtown Charlotte Amalia on a Thursday night off season does not provide a lot of great choices for dinner. But we stumbled upon the Amalia cafe and glad we did. We had a large party of nine that was handled perfectly by our waiter Carl. The menu has great choices for the group to pick from and everyone... More

We were visiting for the day from our cruise ship and, after walking around the shops of downtown we came across this wonderful café. The patio was well cared for and provided a quaint and relaxing lunch. We had an adorable waitress named Cara, were well attended to and, the Chicken Cordon Bleu was seriously the best I've ever had!... More

This place just has incredible food - very unique and delicious and also one of the best server experiences. The sangria was excellent too, we both had seafood dishes and agreed they were up there in the top seafood experiences we'd had on the islands in 10 days! SO glad we ate there just before catching our plane trip back.... More

Was there in February 2015 and dined at Amalia Cafe three times - each visit better than the last. From the calamari to the crab stuffed lobster, each dish was absolutely delicious and service was impeccable (thanks, Carl!!). Enjoyed an evening at the bar with bartender extraordinaire Billy.

After a totally boring day of shopping in downtown Charlotte Amalie, with the ladies, we went to Amalia Café for drinks and appetizers. Great choice with a wonderfully cool outdoor patio. The pitcher of sangria we began with was fantastic! Refreshing, yet somehow potent! Even better, our server, Cara, not only brought us a full pitcher, she brought us four... More
