This is a hotel and restaurant high up on a hill in St Thomas. You can see the ships in port and St Thomas.
Their restaurant had top filet mignon dinners and the desserts are fantastic. We spent our last night of our vacation on the island here for dinner. Service was excellent. Don't pass it up when visiting St Thomas.

Perhaps the best view from a restaurant on the island. Mafolie has an open terrace under a sunroof with walls that can be dropped in case of rain. From this spectacular panorama, one can see all the harbour and all Charlotte Amalie. Seating may be a little sunny for some at midday.
The bartender is proud to display his skill at concocting rum drinks.
The food is passable but not great. It features standard regional fish dishes prepared by the book and served in small portions.

Dinner at Mafolie was a unexpected treat. The mountainside view of Charlotte Amalle Bay and the city was absolutely spectacular and worth the price of admission. The open-aire restaurant was nicely decorated and very comfortable. The bar was well stocked and shared the same incredible view. Our waitress, Jennifer was extremely helpful and guided us in our food selections without being pushy but very patient. Our group of six ordered six different dinners and every one of them was tastefully presented and thoroughly enjoyed. We decided after leaving that this was a terrific experience and that we would definitely return on our next trip to St. Thomas.

Hi this Jennifer- I wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to write a review on The Mafolie Restaurant. It made my day to see your 5 Star Review. We serve many traditional Caribbean dishes that one may not be familiar with, and I enjoy guiding our diners through the menu to find that perfect dish for their taste buds. I am glad that we could make your evening memorable. Best wishes on your future travels and please come back to see us again!!

Loved the open-air view of twinkling lights around and down the hillside. We were seated on the 2nd level and I don't think there's a bad view from any table. My husband said the ribs were incredible - best he's ever had. He also loved the homemade non-alcoholic ginger beer. I chose the freshly caught tuna that was out of this world, with a wonderful New Zealand savingnon blanc.

We've been to Mafolie's numerous times over the years and have always been very pleased with the experience. On this trip (1/28/2014), we took friends with us who have never been to Mafolie's before. We all happened to order different items from the menu and everyone of us thought our choice of meal was excellent. Our friends raved about their food and the incredible views. Our server, Jenny, was awesome and helped to make the night even more memorable with her attentiveness, friendliness and knowledge of the menu.
