This was by far the best restaurant on the island, and that is tough to say because we had some really great food during our 5 day stay. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, the drinks were mixed just right. Our server, Mary, was the best one we had on our entire trip. She went out of her way to find us a late night cab driver (which is no easy feat in St. Croix). We never had to ask for a refill of our drinks, she always anticipated our need. Now the food, wow, i have never had such delicious Mahi in my life. It was perfectly cooked and coated with a delightful parmesan batter. So yummy. This needs to be the best place to eat in St. Croix not number 16.

David Kendrick is a gifted chef when it comes to fish. The fishermen walk two blocks from the sea to his restaurant with their catch of the day and he does his magic with it. My favorite is the fish piccatta -- either mahi, wahoo, or swordfish. I am a cook and I can't figure out how he prepares it so delicately and perfectly cooked--a little crispy on the outside and juicy and tender inside. When we were there three weeks ago all six of us ordered it and everyone agreed it was the best fish dish they have ever eaten. The man NEVER overcooks fish and his light sauces are sublime-- we would lick the plate if we weren't well-mannered. We also love the chipotle soup, and the ravioli appetizer --but you can't go wrong with anything-- especially the fish specials--did I mention his wizardry with fish? The wine list is very good as is the service. We love eating outside in the lovely, quaint, cozy courtyard. But if it is very hot, the inside is a good choice and has a nice bar, fully stocked of course with some interesting drinks. Jane is David's wife and co-owner and she runs the front of the restaurant while David masters the kitchen. It's expensive by Caribbean standards but we are from D.C. so it is all relative-- it is WELL WORTH it and a must go if you are in beautiful St. Croix. Reservations need in season.

My wife and I go to Kendrick's whenever we want a "special" night out. Dave and his wife Jane serve the best food on the Island and the best service also in a beautiful outdoor courtyard. I usually order the fresh fish of the day, Wahoo if available, with one of Dave's great sauces and my wife always order the chicken dish, which she loves. While not inexpensive, it is well worth the price for a memorable dining experience. For those who want a less expensive option, they also have an excellent bar menu with a great variety of appetizers , many of which are large enough to be considered dinner.

The food is consistently excellent, as is the service. And, they have one of the largest selections of alcohol on island, things you have trouble finding elsewhere. The lounge is a nice spot for a drink, and the restaurant has a really nice ambience. Definitely visit if you're on St Croix.
