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.

While most of the pricing in the good restaurants seems to be fairly standardized, lobster prices are not. Morgan's had the best price, and the best quantity for the price. It's very busy for the early seatings, but well worth any wait you might have to have. The vegetarian plate was spectacular. They make some pretty special, different drinks here.... More

We were going to dine at a different restaurant each night on St. John, but we just had to go back for a second trip to Morgan's Mango. The menu is outstanding itself, but there is always new, amazing specials as well. We all thoroughly loved our meals. Our teens had the beef tenderloin, my husband and I had fish... More

You can't miss finding this restaurant in Cruz Bay near Mongoose Junction. The service is excellent and the food super. We had the Lobster Red Corn Chowder and Cajun Shrimp appetizers. Forget the so-called Cheeseburger in Paradise (very ordinary but expensive). Service was very attentive and the Painkiller was excellent, according to my companion. May I add that we went... More

This restaurant has outstanding food. We've eaten here four times since 2010, and have never been disappointed. Don't be misled by Trip Advisor's incredibly poor algorithm for determining ranking. The prices reflect the quality of the dishes served here.

Ok - so it's not cheap, but not much is on St John. There were 6 adults and 5 kids - our check was $418 plus tip. The drinks were really excellent too! Our waiter, an American newcomer to the islands, was excellent, he shared a lot of what he had learned in the 2 months of living on St... More

After a demanding day at the beach, what a treat to find this establishment. We wanted to try this restaurant after recommendation from several people on St Thomas, and a number of locals we met on St John. We showed up without reservation on a Thursday evening, but were quickly ushered to a table. Very tastefully decorated, open air, love... More

The food at Morgan's Mango was great. The seafood paella was amazing and the red snapper was delicious as well. It was one of the best restaurants we went to in Cruz Bay. Good atmosphere and a very friendly, attentive wait staff. I certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal in Cruz Bay.

Delicious food and quick service in a nice setting. We came back after coming on our first night on St John. Eclectic offerings and the scallops were delicious. Very great drinks too!
