We went to a lot of restaurants on St John but this one was by far the best.We even went back! Every single dish on each of the two nights we ate there were superb. Some of the best food we have ever had anywhere! Highly recommend!

We ate at La Tapa on the last night of our vacation and overall had a great dinner experience. The portions were large so the five us split three starters (small plates) and three entrees. We ate outside on the sidewalk and it was fun to people watch. Our waiter and the service were awesome.

We always begin our one week vacation at La Tapa. The outstanding menu features great Spanish and Portugese traditional dishes with always some extras of island flare! The sauces and bread and fine steak and seafood are complimented by its juxtaposition at a restaurant hub in Cruz-there is great people watching and yet the tranquil fans and euro-rustic setting make...

LaTapa can be counted on for a great meal and service. We normally eat here twice on our annual visit to St. John! I would definitely make reservations before going, as this place is always busy!

We were originally seated on the sidewalk which was okay but they very quickly found us a table inside when we asked with no fuss. All the food was excellent but the highlight was the chocolate cake dessert

Sat out on the street-side tables - best for people-watching! But the interior looked lovely as well. Service was excellent. Menu changes every day but everything we tried was wonderful. A little expensive, but it IS St. John, so it was about right given the quality of the food. Great for a special occasion.

This is a must when visiting St. John!!! Doesn't look like much from the road, but Food was exceptional and the service perfect.

We had read the reviews and were looking forward to having dinner. We looked at the menu several times and really had a hard time finding anything that sounded great. The small plates were fine but I was hoping for a lot more after reading reviews.

Over the last 8 years we've enjoyed many meals at La Tapa Restaurant. There are some things that we have learned we can count on there. First, the food is always fresh well prepared. Secondly the service is enthusiastic. They must be a pretty happy group because they seem unflappable. I've dropped in the kitchen a couple of times to... More
