Description: “Tropical serenity meets cutting-edge chic.” These descriptive words spoken by co-owner, Nicole Horstmeyer, best describe the company vision of Blue Shore Grill which owns and operates the Frenchman’s Reef & Marriott Morning Star Beach Resort’s hottest restaurant – HAVANA BLUE. Overlooking Morning Star Beach, HAVANA BLUE is by far the island’s most sought after restaurant. The stunning décor features an eclectic mix of New York, South Beach and the Caribbean style to create a hip, yet approachable vibe. The restaurant’s cuisine combines authentic Cuban and Latin dishes with exotic spices and tangy sauces from the Pacific Rim. All of this, combined with the restaurant’s oceanfront location, creates a culinary experience unlike any other in the Caribbean.

“You don't leave with the Blues at Havana Blue...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Nice place Lindsay and Tiffany are great bartenders I did not like that I could not charge things to my room from there. They should also me open later and have live music. They should have a champagne brunch

“NYC Dining in the Caribbean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful simple decor over looking the ocean. Impeccable service. The staff was very knowledgable and attentive. The food was outstanding best on the island. The ahi tuna was to die for and the cool cappuccino for dessert is a must!! You will not be disappointed. Travis our waiter was wonderful. Ask for him!!

“Amazing! Can't wait to come back...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Great place for food, drinks and lively atmosphere! Even in the "off season" Havana Blue did not disappoint.
Jeff and Oz were personable and great hosts. Mahi dish is delicious. The Pollo dish is even better.
The best part? The desserts. Great selection and taste. This is my first stop my next trip down.

“EXOTIC CUISINE, EXCELLENT SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I am living in St. Thomas currently, and my mom and sister came for a visit. We wanted a special dinner out together and settled on Havana Blue. Our server, Angel, was awesome. She had incredible descriptions of the food and made us feel welcome. She really knew her stuff!! I have to return with my boyfriend because he missed out on the exotic drink selection, delicious food, and wonderful desserts. We watched the sun go down and a cruise ship take off. The atmosphere was great, as well as the menu, and most importantly, the service. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting for a great meal!

It's an honor that you chose HAVANA BLUE for your special family evening out! We love to see locals bringing out of town guests here, and couldn't be happier to hear that you all enjoyed yourselves. We'll be sure to let Angel know that you appreciated her service, too. Here's to a romantic date night for you and your boyfriend soon! We can't wait.
