“Great dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Everything about this restaurant was excellent. Food, service, atmosphere were great. Our waiter was extremely personable. Food on the high side but typical of St. John prices. One of our best meals on St. John.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I went to this bistro for my anniversary dinner. This was the exact spot to do that. We ordered a varity of items on the menu from starters all the way to the dessert. The location of this bistro is perfect with the view of the bay. The waiter was very knowledgeable and courteous. I truly have nothing to complain about this bistro. The flavor in the food was that of a chef inspired 5 star restuarant.

“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This place has an amazing view along with amazing food! I had the scallops with risotto and my husband had the filet. Both dinners were fantastic. The staff service was very friendly and personable. Our waiter even went the extra mile and wrote down a few names of companies that do island hopper tours to help us out. Highly recommended I would for sure come back. Thanks for a great night.

“Great wines and bartenders”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Frequented this restaurant 20+ times over a 2 month stay but always dined at the bar or just went in for a bottle of wine. The bartenders were always fun and suggested great wines like Montes Purple Angel. Had interesting whites too. Other than Tapas this was the best place for wine drinkers. The food was consistent but mostly went for atmosphere, view and wine. There were some children here but didn't look appropriate for a stroller when the restaurant was busy so usually waited until our toddlers were in bed.

“Nice bar with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I had brunch here and it was wonderful food. Pain killers are awesome too! Service was good, but I sat at the bar because the place was crowded. Bar tender was knowledgeable about Cruz Bay and gave me lots of ideas about where to dine. Watching the boat traffic in and out was peaceful.
