Fish, steak and sides were all perfectly cooked and well presented. Our 15 yr old even triend things she had never had and didn't frown. We watched the sun set... More

Sitting on veranda overlooking harbor with beautiful ceiling fans creating lovely breeze. Awesome experience from service to food to ambiance. Started with local salad, followed by mahi mahi over rice with mango salsa and finished with amazing key lime pie. Several nights earlier they hosted a wedding reception which convinced me to visit. Wasn't disappointed!!

This was by far the best meal we had for the week we were in the Virgin Islands. The location is impeccable because you're able to eat dinner while watching the sunset over the bay.

Nate and I go to bistro often and we were really pleased with our duck pateè their home made beer mustard was absolutely fantastic. Presentation needs s little work and perhaps a bit more better service. Over all we enjoyed it and we recomed. For people to go try the new chefs creations. p.s the dessert was outstanding

For our last dinner on the island we couldn't have picked a better place. 4 great dinners, excellent wine list and great service. Right off the beach at Wharf side Village.

My husband and I both love the ambiance of this place. It's nice to have fine dining along the waterfront in Cruz Bay. The food was excellent as well. They were very accomodating to make sure we got a waterfront table. Our waiter was very friendly!

I lived on St. John from fall of 2008 to fall of 2010. During that time, my now wife came down to visit and we said if we ever got married, it would be in the islands. We were engaged on Thanksgiving 2012 and decided to have our wedding on St. John in February of 2014. We planned the entire... More

With tables overlooking the beach (right next to it) and food of outstanding quality, this is definitely somewhere to head to for a special occasion meal in Cruz Bay.
