“Wonderful Dining :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We stayed next door so needless to say the location was terrific for us, Elizabeth was the best as all of them, her humor made my evenings all the more enjoyable, Scott I believe was the best Bartender on the Island, and remembered my name like he knew me forever and made me feel so welcome, and Bruno ...well words cannot describe, but Awesome may give you a clue on his treatment of each table, now as for the food, not what I had expected but MORE! I have had fine dining in major cities and this was right up there, the Chief was very creative and all was yummmmmyyy!! the prices were no more than what I have paid where i live, and the View was everything. Thank you all and wish the Very Best for each of you.

This place is connected to the hotel where we stayed and I'm truly happy that it was! The outside beachside setting had a beautiful view and the overall atmosphe was perfect for a delicious lunch or a romantic dinner. The staff were pleasant and knowledgable

“The setting.. is all worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is the restaurant of the Sancastle on the Beach hotel, where we stayed for 5 days. This is low season for them, but the food, SO well prepared and made to order, always please us so! You can go all American (this is the USVIs after all) and have a great burger or, being more inventive, try their fried to perfection calamari or go with a more sophisticated tuna tartare. Pork chops are like butter and the rice, veggies and potatoes get an extra twist byb a very knowledgeable chef. Drinks are poured with love and the staff is ever so nice. It definitely doesn't hurt that you are dining or eating AT the beach, being the sea a mere 30 yards from you. Bring an insect repellent just in case and ask for sauces on the side, if you, like me, don't like a very good piece of food smothered into too much sweetness.

“Best view of the sunset on island”

We really loved everything about this restaurant. Great food--the lobster is bar none, the best I have ever tasted. The service is very attentive and accommodating.

“Sunset at Fredericksted and Beachside Cafe..Priceless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

What a perfect way to end a day after visiting Frederiksted Pier, linch at Polly's, gift shopping at Franklin's ...dinner at the Beachside Cafe at sunset! Not to mention the quaint cottages next door at Cottages by the Sea! Cannot wait to return! Also enjoyed the morning brunch cart at the Cafe before departing the island!
