Description: At Morgan’s Mango, we try to reflect the life of the islands, a place of dazzling light and color, tropical breezes and starry nights, a relaxed and sensory experience.Joining us, to share in the culinary history of an island world crowded with so many wonderful cultures that it takes your breath way. Our food covers many Caribbean and South American cuisines—Creole, Bahamian, Cuban, Jamaican, Haitian, Puerto Rican, Argentinian and Mayan. All of these cuisines have been influenced by the original inhabitants of the islands, the Arawak and Carib Indians, as well as the Africans, East Indians and Chinese who arrived later. Add to these the foods of the Spanish, French, British and Danish settlers, and you have an incredible melting pot of ethnic and classic cuisines.Hence Cuisines of the Caribbean, a neo-Caribbean experience conveying the juice and jazz of the islands, a carnival of flavors and lifestyles.

We wanted a special place for our 15th anniversary dinner so we asked around. Morgan's Mango was recommended by a local artist -- she said it was her favorite restaurant -- so we knew it would be good! She was so right as this was the best meal we had on our St John trip! We started out with a Bushwacker and Hurricane and the lobster bites appetizer. For our meals we had swordfish and mahi-mahi and finished off by sharing a piece of peanut butter cheesecake. The food and drinks were excellent. The owner walked through to say hello and ask about our food which was a nice touch! We highly recommend trying Morgan's Mango!

First nite on island and cab drivers try to steer you here. Was a nice place. Staff very good. Wine was fair, but with help of staff we finally got a good bottle. Meal was very good.

Family owned and operated, this is our favorite STJ restaurant, hands down. And we should know, we live here. Our opinions about food are qualified too, we moved here from south Louisiana so we know good food. August, the chef is amazing! When you infuse his talents with the flavors of the Caribbean, and those of owners Carlos and Maria from Brazil and Argentina, wow...words hardly do their menu justice. Our favorite is the sea bass (when available) prepared voodoo style with the mango sauce. If you like seafood, this is your place, fresh daily and on lobster night Carlos was out in his boat that very morning catching them!!! But don't count out the steaks or specials. Another favorite: the ceviche, made fresh daily and always something new. The staff does a great job from host, to servers, to the killer bar staff. I could go on and on. But just go, then brag to your friends back home.

Great group of young folks there on our visit. We had appetizers and drinks and enjoyed both. Prices were not out of line with other locations and the atmosphere is youthful and fun. Everyone recommends them and its easy to see why.
