Dined here on Thanksgiving night and had a wonderful meal. We were not looking for the traditional American Thanksgiving meal and but pleasantly surprised to find delicious Caribbean fish with thoughtful nods to our cranberry dressings and pumpkin cocktails - flavors of back home without the weight of the full meal while on vacation. The service was also excellent and we would definitely visit again.

I'm very late posting this review. We dined at Grand Cru last March while on a family vacation on Water island, a charming little "off the grid" spit of land about 15 minutes by putt-putt and another 20 in a taxi from this restaurant. Grand Cru was the second choice when we could not get a reservation at Oceana, its sister restaurant in Frenchtown.

Being honest, it started off a little rough. We were a party of 5 and were assigned a table near the entrance fronting on a mall. There was a little back and forth…but Kristin and Bridget came through and moved us to a lovely waterfront table. The view (and the yachts) are breathtaking.

I can't recall our meal exactly. At my age I sometimes have trouble remembering what I had for lunch today…but I do recall that we were all very well beyond pleased with the menu, the quality of the food, the service and the ambience. So much so that we promised ourselves that we would be back…and we will be this March on our return visit to Water Island and St. Thomas.

If your cruise ship happens to be docked at Havensight, Grande Cru is a restaurant located nearby in the Yacht Haven Grande Marina. Stopped by for refreshments later in the day. The restaurant was just about to stop lunch service late afternoon. Stay inside to enjoy air conditioning. Plenty of outside seating is available, too. While WiFi would have been free, their Internet was not working, but 'borrowed' from a free service nearby. The interior is modern rather than Caribbean.

This is one of my favorite "go to"
Restaurants and bars on St. Thomas. Not only is the food good, but the bartender, Alex, is the best! Can't wait to go back!!

Grande Cru ranks as one of the best restaurants on St. Thomas & we were so thrilled that they opened on Christmas evening. Bartender Alex is a mixology genius with her unique martinis and flair for creating something based on your personal likes. While the menu is fantastic, I have thoroughly loved everything that I've had from the chef's daily specials-- tastebud masterpieces! Seared tuna & scallops tonight along with the Cinnamon martini completed a wonderul island Christmas Day. The clientele adds to the ambience... local business owners, yachties traveling the Caribbean, island characters... just wonderful! Thank you for completing our beautiful Christmas, Grande Cru!
