This was our first dinner in St.Thomas! The ambience was very nice the restaurant very quaint and the staff very friendly. The food was very expensive and delicious. We had a nice mixture of food I had the lamb chops they were very tasty. my...son had the lobster Alfredo and he thoroughly enjoyed that. My daughter had a roast I believe and she said it was so tender and nicely seasoned. My husband had a mixed seafood dish. I will attach some pics below. We had a good time here. We met the owner who was super nice and welcoming. Thanks for the great experience and food.More

Delicious food and outstanding service. Definitely recommend. I had the soup special which was a garbanzo bean with sausage and it was absolutely delicious. Our entrees were all amazing as well. I had the chicken piccata, my husband had a seafood dish and my daughter...had a caesar salad with lobster. Our server was extremely attentive and the overall experience was lovely.More

Stopped by Amalia Cafe for dinner this evening, a short dinghy ride from St. Thomas Bay.… within walking distance of the dingy dock. Very nice dinner. Half the table shared a pitcher of sangria, the red variety, which was not too sweet, full of fruit...and pretty darn tasty! The first courses were gazpacho and piquillo rellenos shared with the table. The soup was good, the peppers stuffed with cheese and cod, smothered in a tomato sauce was better! The shared entree was zarsuelos mariscos … very tasty! Very fresh seafood in a tomato-based sauce, rice on the side. A good dinner, reasonably priced. We’d visit again when in STT!More

There is no meal I love better than a seafood pasta or stew, so I was thrilled to see a seafood stew on the menu. It did not disappoint, and was, in fact, one of the best dishes I have ever eaten! Amazing ambiance and...location. The outdoor patio was fantastic. The wait staff were professional and helpful. Incredible dining!More

Wonderfull spot tucked into an alley way with shady deck to watch the world go by. Couple of chickens running around for your entertainment while you dine on some very tasty food.

I will start off with the good. The location is great, and the atmosphere was really nice. Our server was quite personable and knowledgeable. I ordered the Zarzuela de Mariscos and it was really good, great flavor and good seafood. Everyone else at the table...also really enjoyed their meal. Now for the bad. We ordered a bottle of wine and we had about a quarter bottle left when I left to go to the restroom. When I came back I noticed the server took away the wine. I told the server about our wine and he said he would look into it. I had a good view of the kitchen from where I was sitting, and saw him reach into the garbage can and pull out our bottle of wine. He proceeded to bring it to the table. I told him that I saw him pull it out of the garbage. He apologized and said he would top our glasses up with another open bottle. I was really repulsed that he would take the bottle out of the garbage and try and serve it to us. Unfortunately with the wine incident happening, it really downgraded my review of this restaurant.More

I visited St. Thomas with my family over Thanksgiving 2023. One of the restaurants I have always wanted to dine at is Amalia Cafe. I am so happy I finally did. First, I contacted the restaurant to verify whether or not reservations are required. I...did so on Facebook Messenger. The person I chatted with informed me that reservations are not required but are recommended. I asked if I could make a reservation through chat, and my reservation was accepted. I found this so convenient. When we arrived at Amalia Cafe on the following day. The person I had chatted with stopped by our table to say hello. Such a pleasant touch. The cafe is outdoor dining. There are ceiling fans, but if you dine there during hot summer months, expect to get a little warm. We visited during a cooler time of year, and we were quite warm. Our waiter was drenched in sweat. This didn't take away from our experience as an islander, I am accustomed to hot weather. Food: Delicious! My husband and mom ordered the Barcelona Burger. They quite enjoyed it. My 7 year old enjoyed the Salmon Ammiel. The chef prepared the most delicious fettuccine Alfredo and chicken fingers for our 3 year old, and I absolutely loved the oven roasted Lamb Shank. Our only complaint is about the chef's rice served mine and my 7 year oldest entrees. The rice was undercooked. We only enjoyed a few bites. We ordered dessert as well, which were satisfactory but not memorable. The magic lies in the entrees. Overall, we highly recommend this restaurant. On our next visit to St. Thomas, we will dine at Amalia Cafe again.More

Waited for a year for lunch when our ship was going to be in St Thomas. Went there in the rain to find out they had booked the restaurant for a private party. We had liked it previously and had recommended it to many folks...on the cruise. No restaurant regardless of the food is worth being treated that way.More

This was one of our favorite restaurant visits while in St. Thomas. We had not been here on previous trips, but were glad we tried it out. They had a great menu with a Spanish flair, as well as other menu options for those looking...for more traditional options. I had the zarzuela de mariscos, which was amazing. As much as I was in the mood for a good paella, I had to try this, and I was not disappointed. Others in our party all enjoyed their dishes and agreed this was the dining highlight of our trip. We loved the outdoor atmosphere. Coming just before sunset made it a great dining experience. We came when cruise ships were not in port, so we had a very quiet and enjoyable dining environment. We had an early seating around 5:30, so for a while, we had the whole patio to ourselves, which was nice. It filled in as the night went on. Service was very pleasant and attentive. Needless to next time we visit Charlotte Amalie, this will be one of our spots to hit for dinner.More

Smart casual or dressy beach casual. A sundress would be fine, but not a swimsuit cover-up.
