“Only Restaurant We Visited Twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

If you like to sit outside and not on the beach then this is the place. It's located in Mongoose Junction Shopping area so you can browse the shops or enjoy a drink while waiting for your meal.

My daughter ordered the chicken philly both times we ate there and my husband loved the shrimp vera cruz and the French Country Turnover. The Burrito that Ate Cruz Bay was amazing and according to the kids the Pig was delicious too.

They have a big menu and I'm sure you'll find something you'll absolutely love.

“Great food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Ate there last night. I had the blacken mahi and it was very good. It has limited seating but if you are tired of spending $35-$40 for a main course, try this place out.

“Great food, terrific service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We had a yummy lunch our first day on island...the puff pastry special (pulled pork that day). The service was good, prices very reasonable for St John. Went back on Wednesday night for drinks and live music. A fun evening, friendly island vibe, and delicious mango bellinis.

Great for a quick lunch while shopping in Mongoose Junction. It is outdoors where all the action is.

“Good Puffs and nice bar drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Tasty food in the midst of Mongoose Junction, Cruz Bay.
Ask for the puff special of the day--they are generally good.
