The historic picturesque palm passage houses one of my favorite restaurants in St.Thomas. you can choose to sit at Amalia cafe, or the bar depending on the occasion. The food is full of flavor, and the atmosphere is delightful. For lunch or dinner Amalia cafe is always a top choice. You can find it on the waterfront nestled back in... More

Stopped here on our say stop from our cruise. Just needed a small lunch to get us through til dinner back on the ship. We got simple meals, a few chicken Caesar salads and a couple Italian Panini...they were great!! Prices are reasonable and the staff was a lot of fun! Definitely stopping here next time in port!

I was fortunate enough to have my birthday lunch at Amalia Café while waiting for some jewelry to be set. The atmosphere is enchanting, located down one of the alleyways covered with tropical foliage. The restaurant was almost as special as our waitress, Kaylie. She had great suggestions as to both food and drink - the BEST white sangria I... More

Imagine what you'd experience if the best chef in Barcelona woke up on St. Thomas ...can you say "Salpicon "and "Zarzuela"? Freshest catch available creates the base for marisco magic. Plan to stay awhile in the gorgeous shaded setting tucked away in Palm Passage. And say "yes" to dessert.

Amalia is a wonderful stop in downtown Charlotte Amalie. The food is interesting, delicious, spirited, and wholesome, and the owners are gracious and dedicated to the success of this wonderful restaurant. Our waitperson this time was Kaylee, and she was really excellent, focused, and service-oriented. Thank you for another great afternoon of dining in St. Thomas. Boulder, Colorado

Very small restaurant with only outdoor seating. Beautifully decorated, a little piece of Spain in the heart of Charlotte Amalie. Good service. Good food. I don't like spicy food so was unsure about trying the gazpacho as ones I've tried before tended to be spicy. Server recommended the gazpacho saying it does not have a kick to it. Very happy...

We had a pleasant lunch break at the Amalia Cafe as a break from jewelry shopping. The restaurant is down one of the side streets (24 Palm Passage ) in Charlotte Amalie. We chose to eat outdoors as we were out of the blistering sun and we love to people watch and there was plenty of activity on the street,... More
