This was our first place to eat when we went to St Thomas and ended up going again, we just loved it! The owner was there and is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and so knowledgeable about the islands. The staff was superb and food is fantastic,

We happened to find Amalie cafe while shopping in downtown area and we are so glad we did! Most places in the area have good food but it is just okay nothing special or close to what is consider gourmet. However, the food and service at Amalia Cafe was definitely gourmet. The chef took great pride in every dish, and... More

Had the lobster pasta special. Wonderful. As were the pork sandwich and their flan. Went back a second time for the pasta. The chef was nice and made it for us though it wasn't on the menu. Scrumptious both times. Highly recommended.Very friendly staff. Charming setting.

The location is great and the setting quite comfortable, but the service wasn't what you'd expect for a Mid-Range restaurant on the island. The food is fine and the sangria does the trick but don't this won't fool the patrons that have experienced Traditional Spanish Cuisine before. Not a bad experience but nothing special neither...

Outstanding food sums up this hidden gem just off the promenade on the waterfront. From the delectable dinner rolls to the scrumptuous flan desert this is a must do restaurant when visiting. All four of us enjoyed everything we ordered and we can't wait to revisit the friendly people who work there.

I rarely write reviews but we just left the restaurant where we had an early dinner and we were unsatisfied with the experience. The place looks nice and inviting. Everything on the menu is overpriced which is to be expected for the touristy area of Charlotte Amalie. But Im ok with overpaying for good service and good food. Anyway, I... More

I had a light meal with Sangria. But I could not resist the bread pudding and coffee afterwards. Great service. I felt bad for the server who waiting on 10 people who ordered water and shared one order of mussels. Shame, shame.

Amazing authentic Spanish cuisine! I loved the flavors, the ambiance and the service. All around a must visit while in St. Thomas. Best Sangria! Traditional tapas, paella and more. I have lived in Spain and this is right in line with the best of them. #delicious.
