Sweet Plantains is among the best restaurants at which I have ever dined. Period. This is world-class food.
My family and I visited St. John for the first time in 2008 and stayed in house we rented in Coral Bay. We ate at Sweet Plantains on our last night and it was marvelous. We talked about it for months afterward.
We returned this year, rented the same house, and driving past the restaurant we decided we would get our vacation off to a great start, so we went there our first evening and had another stellar meal. Even the kids meal for our three-year-old was delicious - the best meal he had on the island.
We wanted to eat at a few other places and see more of the island. But as the week wore on, we knew where we would eat our last meal. And, if anything, we had an even better dinner.
We'll definitely head back to the island next year and when we do, we know where our first and last meals will be again.
P.S. Our service was fantastic both nights. We've found the staff to be attentive and Rose and Prince Adams run a great shop. Rose keeps the kitchen running and Prince manages the bar, turning out some of the best drinks we've had anywhere.
