Good place to go for calm island time and a good salad or nice beachy day. Don't go if you are in a hurry but do go if you are not! Ask for a beachside table - ya mon.

We heard good reviews of this place from the locals. It sits right on the beach which is great for watching sunsets. The service was incredibly slow. Island time is one thing but we waited more than an hour for our food to arrive. We saw many tables of people come and be served after we placed our order which was very frustrating. If you go , go for the sunset and not the food.

Service and food are great! The appetizers are wonderful and they serve a chocolate dessert that's to die for. The location right on the beach is perfect for Sunday Brunch or watching the sun set.

Beach Side Cafe is a great place to view the sunset while dining. The sun sets directly over the water. There are only a few tables right on the rail next to the beach, so be sure to make a reservation and ask for one. We had requested a table on the beach based on other reviews, but it appeared that they were not doing those that night or maybe they were doing them later. They did have a table reserved for us right at the railing next to the beach.

We are not foodies so we do not eat a lot of exotic or complicated dishes, but the food was great. The staff was nice and attentive.

We went on a non-busy day, after returning from the stables. The food selections and drinks were terrific, and the service was great. We also enjoyed swimming on the less crowded beach with beautiful views of the Frederiksted pier.
