We had been meaning to try this place for some time now and so glad we did. The breakfast was very good and the atmosphere is nice. We got blueberry pancakes and sausage gravy with biscuits. My husband stated the gravy biscuits were excellent. One thing to note is this restaurant is on Island time so it took over an... More

Excellent breakfast - endless pot of coffee. We had stayed the night in the Inn on our first night in St. John. We travelled around the island and I wish we had made it back for dinner - it sounded wonderful.

After several visits to St. John, we still hadn't visited Tamarind Court. We went to hear Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin' Altar Boys (a blues band out of Milwaukee) and didn't know what to expect when it came to food. It turned out to be "Mexican night". The food was tasty and the service was friendly and quick. Started... More

The restaurant sometimes has live music. Food is mostly the nightly special - Italian, Mexican, etc and lighter fare. I was there on the Mexican night and menu was limited but tasty. Fun and different place to go for a light meal and listen to music.

Stopped in for coffee & breakfast. It was not very busy yet the food took a very long time. The waitress ended up giving me the coffee complimentary because even to her it was a long wait.My friend had the french toast with Amaretto and said it was awesome. I had an omelet that was average.

We order a to go diner during the Thursday night Italian night. We shared the Parmesan Chicken, and two salads with garlic bread. Everything was extremely tasty. We had enough food left over for a light lunch for the two of us the next day.

Always fresh home cooked breakfast in a nice casual courtyard setting. Free parking in front or out back. A local favorite.

We came here for a healthy hearty breakfast for our day of travel back to the mainland. This is conveniently located between the gasoline station and most rental car returns. The courtyard is gated, so the goats stay out and the mature garden flourishes. Anywhere you sit you have shade under the beautiful tamarind tree. News hounds can sit up... More
