“Not to be missed”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

One evening we walked by and looked at the menu, looked up at the plastic chairs, and walked on by. The next day i asked a local about getting some local cuisine and they reccomended Sogo's so went ahead and gave it a try. The food and the service make you forget about the atmosphere. Once you are endulging in the fine carribean cuisine and visiting with the owner, you forget you aren't sitting in a four star restaurant. My husband had the Kingfish special and i had the jerk chicken. We both totally loved our meals and agree they were among the best we'd had on the island. My husband had one of their BBC's and said it was awesome. Unfortunately were were so full from dinner we had to get the desert to go. We planned to go back on our last night but happy hour got the best of us. If they spruced up the curb appeal, i have no doubt they would be swarming with business.

“Authentic flavor, lovely people”

We eat here every time we're in St John. Don't be fooled by the unpretentious appearance, the food is excellent and always served with a smile.

“True taste of Caribbean in a simple looking place...soo GOOD!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We ate at Sogos 3 times on our visit. It is simple looking but dont be fooled...Wonderful Flavors!! King fish in creole sauce is excellent, Jerk chicken paks a spicy PUNCH, yum!!(entrees are around $20...but u get a LOT!!! With sides)
But the chicken curry Roti $10 was the BEST!! It is made on Wednesdays & Saturdays ONLY!! So come for it!! The soup of the day was so delicious>>Pumpkin($6) and "Velt" makes homemade Johnny cakes to go with it (they are incredible, melt in your mouth GOOD)
We will be back!!! For more..

“💛💙💜 Best Food in St John's”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Tired several restaurants in Cruz Bay and hands down this was my favorite. I'm a foodie who loves quality over quantity and typical never finishes my plate. I ordered the curry goat and came close to licking my plate clean. The flavor and tenderness of the dish was perfection. Only regret is I wished we found the place earlier in our stay, as we would have gone back several times.

If you are looking for amazing carribean food Sogo is the place. Plus the owner is a really sweet, chatty and friendly man.
