I could never grow tired of the Blue Orchid. It was our first time to try the new chef Karrl, as Ben has left the island. Didn't know what to expect, but as always the food was fabulous. Our only disappointment was no Escargot appetizer was not available. The Blue Orchid makes the most delicious Escargot. Being that it was... More

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here. We ordered the parmesan fried oysters, which were a bit fishy, so we had to ask for lemon to squeeze on them. I ordered lamb three ways, which was very good and my husband ordered the duck breast. They also brought us a complimentary appetizer which the chef is considering putting... More

The views are absolutely terrific. We had a collection of different meals: prime rib, filet mignon, and the sea bass. All three were just average. Both prime rib and filet were a bit over cooked.

This is a very nice restaurant at the botanical gardens. It is high on a mountain with a great view. We took part in the Saturday brunch and it had plenty of choices with moderate to high pricing. The staff were friendly and attentive. We both had the filet eggs Benedict and it was delicious.

My sister and I stayed in St Thomas to Celebrate her 60th birthday. We wanted to go somewhere special with a great view for our last dinner on the Island. While this restaurant (and resort with a botanical garden) is on the highest point in St Thomas over looking Megan's Bay and quite a ride to get there, it was... More

This is the second time since we started our vacation coming here and it was definitely worth the stop. The staff are super friendly, ESPECIALLY our server Kara! The atmosphere is that of a relaxing lounge to enjoy time with friends, great cocktail, and amazing food. The restaurant side is equally amazing where we had Kara again and she remembered... More

Not only is the food great but you could come here for the view alone. The observatory deck has incredible views. There is an apiary with beautiful birds. It looked like there was an outdoor bar for during the day which would be something to look into but we were there for dinner and it was great!

The restaurant is located in the Guest House on the north side of the island. The drive was similar to driving a roller coaster. The grounds are beautiful and the food and service were amazing.

The food was phenomenal, even though we just got some oyster and crab cake appetizers. The food was great and the presentation was beautiful. After we ate, we walked up on the observation deck, which was honestly the best view on the entire island. After that, we walked through the botanical garden on site, which was unique, informative, and beautiful.... More
