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.

“Lobster night feed on Tuesdays”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

While most of the pricing in the good restaurants seems to be fairly standardized, lobster prices are not. Morgan's had the best price, and the best quantity for the price. It's very busy for the early seatings, but well worth any wait you might have to have. The vegetarian plate was spectacular. They make some pretty special, different drinks here. We went back twice.

You can't beat fresh Caribbean lobster, right June? We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your dinners with us. It sounds like the vegetarian dish hit the spot as well, which is great. We hope you had a blast visiting St. John! The next time you vacation over our way, we'd love to welcome you back in.

Best,

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We were going to dine at a different restaurant each night on St. John, but we just had to go back for a second trip to Morgan's Mango. The menu is outstanding itself, but there is always new, amazing specials as well. We all thoroughly loved our meals. Our teens had the beef tenderloin, my husband and I had fish and lobster specials. I also tried their menu Paella, and in addition to the great taste, it was loaded with sea food! We had great service from a lovely lady named Julie (from Ohio originally)...we were lucky enough to have her both evenings we spent here, and although nearly a week apart, and with MANY other visitors, she remembered what my daughters liked to drink and how they liked their steaks prepared, right down to the sauce on the side! Worth the price (as the prices are all high on St. John anyway!).

Julie sure took excellent care of you, didn't she? We're thrilled to hear it! It's great that you and your whole family enjoyed your dinners with us. We hope you had a blast vacationing on the island. The next time you need to escape those Michigan winters, we'd love to have you back in!

Take care,

“Hard to beat”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

You can't miss finding this restaurant in Cruz Bay near Mongoose Junction. The service is excellent and the food super. We had the Lobster Red Corn Chowder and Cajun Shrimp appetizers. Forget the so-called Cheeseburger in Paradise (very ordinary but expensive). Service was very attentive and the Painkiller was excellent, according to my companion. May I add that we went twice and the two different hostesses were very attractive.

Thanks for naming us a "can't miss" in Cruz Bay! It sounds like you and your companion really enjoyed your lobster and shrimp, which is great. We hope the rest of your vacation was just as relaxing and fun. The next time you visit St. John, we'll see you back in!

“Should be top two!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has outstanding food. We've eaten here four times since 2010, and have never been disappointed. Don't be misled by Trip Advisor's incredibly poor algorithm for determining ranking. The prices reflect the quality of the dishes served here.
