Cafe Amelia is on a side street just off the main street in downtown, a short walk from the ferry terminal. We went there for lunch before heading back home. It was a fitting place to end our vacation. The food was very good. The clams tapas was excellent with a very good sauce. The sangria was good and plentiful... More

This place is located in Palm Passage (off the main st) and very close to The Greenhouse restaurant. It is an excellent Spanish Tapas restaurant. Cara, our server, was knowledgeable and attentive; bravo. We ordered: Gazpacho - $9 Zarzuela de Mariscos - $33 Calamari - $14 Banana Blueberry Breadpudding Enjoy!

We had a long travel day and had dinner there. Our server was wonderful and gave us super service. After visiting another island for a week we returned and had lunch. Again very good but best of all we left some purchases there and Helga returned our package to the store we bought it. They were able to contact us... More

After traveling to St. Thomas, multiple times a year for over 14 years, we have found a little gem of a restaurant right in the heart of Charlotte Amalie on Palm Passage. We stopped for lunch before leaving the Island and had one of our best meals of the week. There is truly something for everyone on the menu and... More

It was the Friday after Thanksgiving and after a day of shopping, we were looking for a place to rest our tired legs - lucky us! Food was outstanding - service even better. We loved seeing the passion of the owner - he was bussing tables and taking orders. Can't wait to come back next year!

We enjoyed a tapas lunch at Amelia Cafe. The restaurant has a very nice terrace in Palm Passage, which seems to be the most quaint and upscale of the passages in town. Our server, Cara, was most helpful. The garlic shrimp was excellent...be sure to order the home baked breadbasket to sop up the sauce. We also ordered the day's... More

We went to Amalia Cafe for dinner to get a break from our resort's usual fare on the strength of the reviews. It seems in retrospect that most people's reviews discussed the lunch menu, and thus the rating of one dollar sign to two dollar signs. It should be stressed that dinner is a different proposition. All entrees are in... More

While walking on our way to another restaurant, we spotted this place out of the corner of our eye and decided to give it a try. We were NOT disappointed whatsoever. Our server, Cara, was lovely, friendly, and very professional. She suggested trying things that, being from Ohio, we're not used to eating the way it was prepared. The main... More
