My husband and I decided to try this after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. Pros: they make their own sangria, my husband's roast beef pita was overflowing with meat, potato salad is good, nice location Cons: waitress accidentally spilled an entire carafe of sangria on me and my clothes and offered no restitution (I don't think I should have had...

Family care of the all aspects of this restaurant , lunch & dinner , cafe Amalia ( pita express) is where you find the quality cooking in downtown Charlette Amalie under the shade in alley , where ground is still covered in stones from 1800 .

We stopped for lunch and my husband was raving about the Gyro. Service was quick and efficient and she seemed to know almost everyone there. We liked this place and will return.

Pita Express was a great place to grab lunch. Pita's are good, and the Gyros my Husband had were the best he has ever tasted! In a land of "Island Time" Cara our server was a welcome change. Quick and pleasant, she moved even in the heat. The potato salad there was amazing! Wish they sold it by the quart!... More

We loved this charming outdoor restaurant in Palm Passage on the waterfront of Charlotte Amalie. Cara, our server, gave us impeccable service and clued us in on the best items to order. We have returned for the salmon and paella two times since our first visit!

Have gone two years in a row, love the location away from the noise and pushy salesmen. Only have hone for lunch and drinks but the pita are really good and the potato salad is probably the best I have ever tasted.
