“Romantic Dinner on the Beach”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

My husband and I got married at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef and Morningstar Hotel this January and we had choosen a private dinner on the beach at the Havana Blue restaurant. We couldn't be happier with our choice. The setting was so beautiful and romantic and beyond our expectations. We felt that the entire staff made a great effort to make this day very special and unforgettable for us. We were truly alone on the beach sitting on a beautifully decorated table surrounded by torches. We were served a 7 course tasting menue which was an exceptional culinary experience and the creative designes of the courses a pleasure for the eyes.

We have dined at the actual restaurant later during our stay, decorated in soothing blue and white hues, overlooking the beach and the food was as outstanding as during our wedding.

If anyone considers a wedding in St. Thomas or any other kid of romantic celebration, if you choose a dinner on the beach be assured that you will have an unforgetable evening and memories you will cherish forever. This is a true one-of-a kind experience.

It was an honor to celebrate such a wonderful occasion with you! Thank you for allowing us to be part of it. We hope the rest of your stay here was just as enjoyable, and it's great to hear that you came back later to see us again here at HAVANA BLUE. Here's to many wonderful anniversaries for the two of you. Thank you for the recommendation and the elegantly written review!

Best wishes,

“Havana Blue- good tapas!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We stayed at Frenchman's Reef and wandered over one evening for some Tapas and drinks. The bartenders (Max & Lindsay) were VERY friendly. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was excellent. The only negative was the hostesses didn't seem to be on top of things -- didn't seat us anywhere near our reservations (and it didn't seem too busy) so ended up eating at the bar. Oh, and it wasn't a cheap meal but considering everything in St. Thomas/St. John is expensive, we expected it.

Michelle,

Thanks for letting us know that Max and Lindsay took such great care of you! We'll be sure to pass your kind words on to them. We do apologize that the hostess didn't seem to offer the same level of service, and that's something we can address, without a doubt. The combination of great food and atmosphere are something we're proud of, so thanks for sharing how much you enjoyed your visit. Stop in to see us if you're ever back in St. Thomas. We'd love to see you again!

All the best,

HAVANA BLUE Management

“Ambience beyond expectations”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

No trip to St. Thomas is complete for us without our special night at Havana Blue. The food is Cuban Fusion so your should know that before you go. Once there the atmosphere, decor, blue lighting and candles are beyond compare. If timed right you might see one of the very large cruise ships illuminate the sky as they leave. Always a truly romantic evening from beginning to end!

“Most fabulous”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This has to be one of my favorite places ever. Love, Love, Love the ambience. So darn beautiful. The food was so fabulous. It was my husband & I and our son and his beautiful girlfriend. They were both overwelmed. Have been there 4 times on our trips to St. Thomas and its one of our places we always go back to.

“Great ambience!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This was a great spot for a nice dinner on the water at night. Very modern and upscale interior. The food was really presented well, however my husband and I aren't really into Cuban Fusion or seafood so it just wasn't for us, but we really enjoyed our night out.

Thanks for stopping in to see us! We're glad you loved the ambiance we provide here and that you enjoyed the evening overall. Though our menu consists of a unique mix of tastes from the Pacific Rim, Latin American flair and fine dining, we understand that it may not have been to your specific tastes. It's great to know that you still enjoyed your night out, and we hope you'll stop in for drinks and atmosphere if you're ever back in St. Thomas. Thanks for the review!

All the best,
