Some of the best food on the island!

Our group chose Rhumb Lines for a birthday dinner and were blown away by the food. You'd never find this place if you were just walking past (you have to walk through a convenience store to find the restaurant) but a local recommended it and we're delighted we gave it a shot.

We chose rhumb lines for a family dinner based on decent reviews online. We werent disappointed. The pupu sharing items were very good. The mains and starters were also very tasty and we enjoyed the Thai fusion flavours. There were large fans throughout so heat was not an issue. Service was friendly and reasonable paced. We never found ourselves looking... More

This was our second time at Rhumb Lines and we were not disappointed. Really great courtyard seating with fans - it was very comfortable even though it was July. This was our first trip with our three kids and we were very happy to see that they offered a true kids' menu - can't say enough how nice that was... More

The food was awesome and the atmosphere was really fun and festive! Cute place inside, just don't let the market on the outside scare you off. It is hidden in the back, but a nice surprise indeed! The waitress was attentive and friendly and we thought the food was really good. We both had the Pad Thai (mine chicken and... More

As a group of eleven, we had issues finding suitable restaurants to fit our crowd. We were lucky enough to stumble on this little gem hidden behind a grocery store in town. The girl at the front desk was very accommodating and got our table together very quickly. The food was delicious. Be aware that some of the dishes are... More

Don't be misled by having to walk thru a quickie mart to enter and be sure to make reservations! This is an always dependable stop for us on our annual trip. Great outdoor seating and food is fresh and always prepared with a nice twist. Repeater for sure.

One of our favorite restaurants on St John. Tucked away through the mini mart you are transported to another world. The Caribbean Asian decor is fun with swings at the bar and multitudinous napkin rings. We were with a party of 13 people and they accommodated is with no issue. With the size of the group we expected some waits... More

We enjoyed our meal here and the kids did too! The bar has fun chairs that are actually swings (not really suitable for kids, but fun for adults and just something unique). Waitresses were all super sweet, and accommodating. We read reviews that the food is super spicy, so we asked them to tone it down, but found it wasn't... More

What an unexpected and secret little paradise in the heart of Cruz Bay! The Asian fusion cuisine is tasty and inventive and our waitress was friendly and informed. I could eat at Rhumb Lines and the Longboard only next time I'm in St John and would be very very happy.
