We enjoyed the lunches so much, we ate here 3 times during our one week stay. The shrimp vera cruz is delicious as are the tacos and the curry coconut chicken salad.

We love this place... Outdoors and tropical, very reasonable prices... Had the seared tuna and the shrimp tacos which were out of this world. Best food on the island so far!

“Only Restaurant We Visited Twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

If you like to sit outside and not on the beach then this is the place. It's located in Mongoose Junction Shopping area so you can browse the shops or enjoy a drink while waiting for your meal.

My daughter ordered the chicken philly both times we ate there and my husband loved the shrimp vera cruz and the French Country Turnover. The Burrito that Ate Cruz Bay was amazing and according to the kids the Pig was delicious too.

They have a big menu and I'm sure you'll find something you'll absolutely love.

“Great food at reasonable prices”

Ate there last night. I had the blacken mahi and it was very good. It has limited seating but if you are tired of spending $35-$40 for a main course, try this place out.

“Great food, terrific service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We had a yummy lunch our first day on island...the puff pastry special (pulled pork that day). The service was good, prices very reasonable for St John. Went back on Wednesday night for drinks and live music. A fun evening, friendly island vibe, and delicious mango bellinis.
