“Pricey but excellent”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on our first night of a 4 day stay at the Westin. Made a reservation late in the day without trouble, our table was ready and was right in the window overlooking the bay. They are proud of their steaks and the prices show it, we decided that we could go to a good steakhouse back in the states and didn't come to the islands for steak anyway. Had a great piece of fish (locally-caught, which means off the coast of Puerto Rico, so sort of local) with a great buttery sauce. The sides are separate and served family-style, plenty big enough for two, we tried a great risotto with red peppers, fennel and sweet potatoes. Desserts were just average, our service was good. This is a decent option with good atmosphere of you're already staying at the Westin and don't feel like taking a taxi to town, otherwise opt for one of the funkier places in Cruz Bay.

“Romantic and wonderful”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

While staying at the Westin we spent a romantic evening with a view of the bay at Cruz Bay Prime. What a wonderful meal and the atmosphere was very romantic. Lovely piano music playing in the background added to the ambiance.

“Good first night!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We arrived at the Westin in the late afternoon on a Sunday and decided to go to Cruz Bay Prime as it was convenient. The service was wonderful and prompt. I had a scallop appetizer and one of their fresh fish specials (black sea bass) for an entree. Both were excellent. The fish was quite good. My wife who is a vegetarian enjoyed an appetizer and a salad, both of which were enjoyed. We also enjoyed creamed spinach and roasted vegetables as side orders "for the table". which were tasty!

“Great atmosphere and great food!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Located upstairs from the open lobby, Cruz Bay Prime offers great food, a special island charm, relaxed island service, and some good music. There is also a choice of just sitting in the bar and having light bar food which is also very good.
