Castilian tapas & seafood has no better representative than this place in St Thomas. We got the Salmon Ammiel and Zarzuela de Mariscos entrees with a Santa Fe shrimp/crab tapa. These all were cooked perfectly, and arrived at the right time due to impeccable service.

Set in a charming old building with thick walls and artistically decorated in the Spanish style. The seafood was delicious, the service efficient and friendly.

The food was fabulous but the service was even better! What a great find on a weekend when most places were closed because no ships were in port but Amalia Cafe treated us like royalty.

One of the Best restaurants to eat "Al Fresco" Beautiful setting - attentive service and a nice wine list, although very short on French wines - To be expected as it's "Spanish" style but even so....Lunch specials are usually excellent.

We split the salmon entrée with a side salad. Good portion of salmon with great flavor and the steamed vegetables were awesome The bartenders were very friendly and service was excellent.... More

We were here for dinner on a Saturday night. What stunned us initially was the fact that there was one other couple in here for dinner- on a Saturday night! However, our fears were averted when the staff came over and started chatting, very knowledgeable and very professional, and when the food came out it was amazing. Easily the best... More

A wander up a passage or arcade and we found this Café.The Bar is situated a little further along but in close proximity. Café has outdoor seating under cover so you can see all the passings by. Staff were very professional and friendly and service the same. Café is open for all meal times. Menu was quite extensive but simple.... More
