Excellent first meal in Virgin Islands

We arrived by plane and drive to the Amalia Cafe immediately (recommended by Trip Advisor). We had a quiet lunch in their outdoor dining room. It was very pleasant, I ordered a salad and my wife had chicken. I highly recommend the Amalia Cafe for lunch in Charlotte Amalie.

Excellent selection of seafood dishes. All fish was very fresh. Our server, Kaylie, couldn't have been more professional.

This was the last restaurant my wife and I visited before leaving the Island. It was AWESOME! Our waitress (a thin caucasian young woman), IM SO SORRY I forgot her name but she was THE BEST! Its like she could read my mind! She basically asked what we liked and gave us her suggestion in which we went with. Needless... More

And she was right. Local foods were on our dinner list for our stay in St Thomas last week. Lucky for us, we stumbled on this OUTSTANDING little Spanish restaurant. Our server, Cara, provided great recommendations (Zarzuela - the spicy seafood casserole was excellent). There were several specials offered and were excellent alternatives to the standard dinner entrees. Cara was... More

After searching for a restaurant that can actually served food as the described on the menu. My cousin Todd, found Mason Amalia, he insisted we try it. The prices were in keeping with the Touristy prices we have been met with at other restaurants. The difference was the food was actually good. Our waiter listened to our family and what... More

Aparently we were directed to their sandwich shop that is connected to the restaurant and not the restaurant. The waiter was meh, and the food was worst but we were hungry. The whole time we were there for lunch we were the only ones in the restaurant but the sandwich shop adjacent packed them in. Sadly the best things we... More

Read the reviews and decided to try it. All 6 of us loved our food. The mixed seafood dish was a hit as was the shrimp in tomato sauce. And the red sangria recommended by our server was perfect. Can't remember her name but she is from Iowa and was a fantastic professional. Highly recommend this spot.

Amalia Cafe is a pleasant restaurant on one of the narrow passages off the busy street facing the water. The food is mostly Spanish with a Caribbean touch. Service is excellent, and prices are reasonable considering you are in a tourist haven. After dark, after 6 pm, and after the cruise ships leave, Charlotte Amalie sort of closes up, so... More
