Very good food, atmosphere, and service. We had the charcuterie and squid salad. Highly recommend for a fabulous relaxing evening.

Ok so my honest review, we had a large party and were seated outside around 545 (no one else inside the restaurant) so we had very little air under the deck. My steak was great, but a little overcooked as was everyone who ordered steak. For instance I ordered medium rare and got medium, but it had great flavor. Goat cheese salad was spectacular. So food was good, but so are other restaurants on the island. Once the place filled up I saw why we were outside, the locals get the inside. (We had reservations) Pricey, but good food. Got 3 dirty glasses(like unwashed). We didn't try the wine. So overall good food, not so great service for tourists, and come prepared to spend a good bit. We had 3 entrees, bread basket and a piece of key lime pie and with gratuity my portion was $180. I don't mind paying for good food, but overall our party was disappointed.

La Tapa is one of St. John's best restaurants, and we've tried pretty much all of them. The food is innovative, exceptionally well-prepared, service is spot-on, and wine prices reasonable. Expensive (figure about $100/person with wine, appetizer, main course, dessert and tip) but worth every penny.

Alex, the chef, never disappoints! Super fresh Caribbean-European fare expertly prepared! Always something new and something interesting on the menu you wont find at other local venues. Great food!!!
