“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Went here when our cruise docked at St Thomas for the day. There were four of us and we tried a selection of things from the menu including sandwiches and more traditional food. The best dish would have to be Zarzuela de Mariscos which was amazing! Service was excellent, and I don't think the prices were that bad, would definitely recommend.

“Island feel, great sangria”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Ordered from the tapas menu and enjoyed each item! The location was quiet despite being near the shopping area. The sangria was so delicious - didn't think we would finish it but found that was easy to do!

“Great Food”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

My husband and I had some time to kill between landing in St. Thomas and catching the ferry to Tortola. We decided to have lunch at the Amalia Cafe. We were very happy with both the service and food. Their beutiful outside deck was a great place to recover from the long plane ride.
We will make it a point to return next time.

“Fine Dining Experience”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Recently had lunch at Amalia's Cafe based on all the positive reviews. It was not a disappointment. Please note that this is a "fine dining" establishment and you should be prepared for the prices to reflect that fact. This is not your neighborhood fast food place! With that in mind be prepared to pay for ALL items the waiter suggests including the fancy olives and bread to start with. ($3.00 each) You will be highly discouraged from ordering the tap water. (Probably a good idea.) I ordered the Paella Valenciana. (Lunch portion was $20.00.) An excellent choice! My wife ordered the Barcelona Burger. Another excellent choice. ($18.00) It is a mixture of Ground Sirloin and Pork Sausage about 1 inch (or more) thick! It came with Steak Fries and Salad. We reluctantly had to send half of it back to the kitchen because one half of the bun had been burnt to a crisp. It came back out perfectly with much apology. With Bottled Water, a pot of Coffee with milk, and a Flan (delicious!) for dessert the bill, before tip, was $63.00. If you are on St.Thomas just skip dinner, or lunch, one day and give Amalia's a try! On a further note, on Cruise Ship days (most days) they will not take reservations for Lunch. Thanks, Rennie, (our server), for a pleasant experience!
