“Fantastic experience -- and Russell was phenomenal”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We just enjoyed what we thought was our final dinner out here in St. Croix. Reality is, snowy rather on our route back home tomorrow has changed our plans for the day. We just might need to make another trip to The Galleon as it was singularly the finest meal we had in St. Croix this vacation.

Every segment of the meal was perfect and everyone who took part in our experience made it wonderful. Special kudos to our waiter, Russell, who was the perfect balance of knowledgable and caring, and completely charming and entertaining.

If in St. Croix for more than a few days, and looking for a fine meal with no limits, we could not recommend The Galleon more.

“Friendly staff and AWESOME FOOD!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We arrived early, reservation was for 6pm. Greeted by friendly staff and were seated in the bar area and had friendly chat with Lesley, whom we found out later was actually the owner. Cruzan Rum drinks and an awesome view of the water and yachts! When we were seated for our meal, the NEW Chef Digby came to greet us. He remembered speaking to the person in our group who had called to reserve our table, encouraged by her "energy" and we were encouraged by his taking the time to come to our table to say hello! THE FOOD WAS AWESOME! Order the ravioli appetizer! Had the Scallops and they were tender, and adorned with something "delicious" ! That "white chocolate soup" is to die for! This is upscale but not stuffy. Hats off to our wait staff: Mike and Russell. Nice to know a "local" Chef Digby has decided to go back home to share his talent, for what we hope are many more days to come! Lesley, we're the group who borrowed your cigs and lighter and sat at the bar while you unpacked wine! PRAYERS for continued success! We'll be back!

“The food was amazing, we went back twice!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

I was here in Feb 2013, and my boyfriend and I enjoyed our meal so much, we came back during the trip. For Caribbean island standards (no offense meant) this meal was absolutely surprising. It would give even a NY steak house a run for it's money! Do not miss out on the Caesar salad!!

“Best Meal on the Island”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

The food was delicious - the beef tenderloin with lobster medallion is their signature dish and the sea scallops were great. Both were cooked perfectly. Lesley, the owner, greeted us and checked several times to be sure we did not need anything. Russell, our waiter, was very attentive, personable and definitely an experienced server.

“Chateaubriand for two as good as it gets.”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

My wife and I were treated to a sumptuous meal of chateaubriand for two with sauce béarnaise last night at the warm and friendly Galleon on the grounds of the Tamarind Reef Resort in St. Croix. I enjoyed a marvelous cabernet sauvignon from the Napa Valley recommended by the equally delightful owner Lesley, and after dinner had a smooth and mellow decafe coffee. The appetizers were unusual island treats, and after dinner we shared a desert of crème broullaise, which was as good as we have tasted in the New World.
Our server Russell was quite a table-side specialist in carving, and you can get him to make you a Caesar salad for two for which he will prepare the dressing on the spot from scratch.
The beautiful and spacious rooms of the restaurant were filled with the sounds of the island-renowned guitarist Steven Katz, but I don't know if he only plays there on Saturdays. All together, I would say that if you are going to go to a fine restaurant while in St. Croix, make sure you visit The Galleon at least once during your stay. I certainly look forward to another chance to enjoy their magnificent cuisine.
