We dined here a couple times during our stay on the island! The setting was vibrant and the music just made you wanna dance while you dined. The staff were pleasant, the food top notch island/Caribbean cuisine, and the prices affordable! We loved this place!

This place is a go to place for locals and tourist who want to try the island food with much of a Puerto Rican flare. The owners were born and raised in St. Croix, but are of Puerto Rican descent, so they put it all in the cuisine. It is cooke right there and then, no frills, really good and they make you feel like home. Fried items are in abundance, as it is the local fish and seafood (conch soup is GREAT), accompanied by staples like tostoned (masked fried plantains), with a spicy sauce that will get you thirsty for an ice cold beer if you wish. True to its form, the menu comes to your chair on a white board and its prices are as honest as the people serving it.

This place is slightly off the beaten path, but we are glad we went. They have outdoor seating as well as indoor. There was a good crowd when we got there. This place is only open Thur, Fri, and Sat. They recommend reservations, so we did this, but i'm not sure it was necessary. Food is actually priced really well for the area. Dinner for two plus drinks and an appetizer was under 40 bucks. Quite a bargain actually. We had fried plantaines - tasty. Fried snapper for my husband, and conch in butter for me. Both prepared well. Tasted great also. We had the mojitos based on other reviews that raved about them, but frankly - they were nothing special in my opinion. But the food is good and i highly recommend this place.

Villa Morales is a family restaurant with good food and a nice wait staff. It's a little out-of-the-way; near the Whim Estate on the Frederiksted side of the island. Hispano-Caribbean family-style food. Good mojitos too.

If you are visiting St. Croix & don't visit Villa Morales you've missed out on one of the island gems...out "in the country" it's a relaxed casual setting...open Thursday-Saturday, it's worth a day off from the beach to enjoy a great meal there...did I mention probably the best mojitos in the western hemisphere? Blackboard specials are varied...stock menu has something for every taste...I'm hooked on the snapper with platanos and bread fruit (when available), but have had conch in various dishes, local lobster, chicken & very good salmon balls...sides are varied & accomodating...good local color & decor...I try to make it my first & last dinner on island,,,Angie, JT & the crew treat you right...full service bar...when you sit there & smell the mint as JT builds your mojito you'll be hooked as well...enjoy
