Description: At Morgan’s Mango, we try to reflect the life of the islands, a place of dazzling light and color, tropical breezes and starry nights, a relaxed and sensory experience.Joining us, to share in the culinary history of an island world crowded with so many wonderful cultures that it takes your breath way. Our food covers many Caribbean and South American cuisines—Creole, Bahamian, Cuban, Jamaican, Haitian, Puerto Rican, Argentinian and Mayan. All of these cuisines have been influenced by the original inhabitants of the islands, the Arawak and Carib Indians, as well as the Africans, East Indians and Chinese who arrived later. Add to these the foods of the Spanish, French, British and Danish settlers, and you have an incredible melting pot of ethnic and classic cuisines.Hence Cuisines of the Caribbean, a neo-Caribbean experience conveying the juice and jazz of the islands, a carnival of flavors and lifestyles.

Went here Tuesday night for dinner since we had heard about their lobster special. I ordered lobster and hubby ordered seafood paella. Omg! Lobster was cooked perfectly! I keep thinking I wanna go back and order that again! The paella was very flavorful and had a decent amount of seafood in it. Very great dishes!

We went with another couple for drinks and appetizers. The drinks were very good, I had an issue with one of the apps. Each couple ordered the jerk chicken quesadillas and found them to be very bland. They were well put together, but the flavor was not present. The Mrs did not care for the tuna tartare, but I thought... More

Cannot miss going at least once to this great restaurant. Located in a great place but since it's outdoor eating, sometimes it gets a little hot.

We have eaten here before and it was better. Lobster was over cooked (making it chewey) and keylime pie came with a lime garnish. Apparently owner or chef thinks tourists eating here are stupid and think keylimes are made from green limes (they are not, they're from keylimes, and they are yellow). Said pie was not tart at all and... More

We're very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the Key Lime Pie, Chris. This is a bit surprising to hear, because we normally get rave reviews about it. We can assure you that each day we make our specialty dessert with traditional key limes. If something ever tastes less than stellar, don't hesitate to let us know -- we'd be... More

We have been coming to St. John for 19 years and Morgan's is always on our list of places to eat. Sometimes we have dinner here 4-5 times in a week, other times less, but always 2-3 times. Food is always fresh and well prepared. Great drinks and cold beer.

My husband and I had dinner here this past Tuesday night. Since most of the restaurants on the island are closed for the month of September, we decided to give their lobster night a try. We had reservations at 6 and got a very nice (but VERY small) table up front with a view of Cruz Bay. The waitress was... More

We're very sorry to hear that your lobster didn't hit the spot. Each and every dish should be cooked to perfection, and it's disappointing to hear we missed the mark. We can assure you that this sort of mistake isn't usual for us. Another chance to welcome you back would be great -- we know we could truly hit it... More

We come here every year for dinner and get the same thing. Coconut Shrimp. We say we're going to try something different, but it's just so good. Like, so, so, so good. And don't even get me started on their extensive cocktail menu. I used to get the Hurricane Hugo, but lately I've been going for the Lime & Coconut.... More
