“Nice atmosphere lousy food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2010

Went there for a special occasion. The building and grounds were nice. The food was on par with a mall like chain restaurant. If you are visiting St. John I would suggest having lunch on the beach at Caneel but not suggest their Equator restaurant for dinner.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2010

located in an old sugar mill. ambience is outstanding. sunset views from almost every table. food is good to very good - not big city gourmet but fresh and well prepared and presented. service is pleasant and attentive. family friendly but suitable for a romantic table for 2. a true island experience but party animals looking to get wasted to the sounds of jimmy buffet should look elsewhere.

“Spectacular,romantic surroundings and good food too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2010

The Equator at Caneel bay is a special place to celebrate a special occasion. The food is good to excellent. I find some of the dishes a bit too spicy for my palate although others in our family liked the heat. The filet and the chicken were great as well as the tuns. Save room for desserts especially if they have a banana creme pie. The view around the rim at sunst is magical.
