Cuzzin's is the place to come for awesome Caribbean food. The restaurant is located on Backstreet just a short walk from the main shopping drag. Inside the restaurant has several tables scattered throughout with local artwork (for sale) on the walls. The menu is chocked full of Caribbean specialties, Caribbean lobster, conch fritters, plantains, ribs, chicken and even some burgers for the "tourists". They have a nice drink menu filled with tropical drinks and beer. Choosing an entree is hard since everything on the menu sounds incredible. The entrees come with three side dishes and the list is hard to choose from such as sweet potatoes, plantains, coleslaw, mac & cheese, stuffing, etc.
Liz and I have been to Cuzzin's every time we are in Charlotte Amalie and each time we have had excellent food and wonderful service. I would recommend that if you are in St. Thomas definitely come to Cuzzin's for an awesome meal.
Favorite Dish: Our first visit to Cuzzin's I ordered the Chicken and Ribs plate. It came with a choice of three sides. I chose the potato salad, the sweet potatoes and the stuffing. It was incredible good and the portion was very large. Liz had the Caribbean Lobster with mac and cheese, coleslaw and fried plantains. She loved her meal. I had some of the Lobster and it was very sweet and tender. The lobster shell was an interesting white and pink color. We washed down our meal with an coke and an iced tea.
Our second visit to Cuzzin' I had the Ribs which were incredibly good and juicy; just as good as I remembered. Liz already knew she wanted the Caribbean Lobster before we got there it was just a matter of choosing a size. After the waitress began rattling off sizes and prices I interrupted and told her to just bring her the largest one you have. Liz loved her lobster and ate the whole thing. She barely had room to eat some of the delicious coleslaw, plantains and mac & cheese. It was an incredibly good meal and we had the same wonderful waitress "Sheila" that we had on our first visit.
Our last visit to Cuzzins in July 2010; we brought along my Mother and her fiancee. Both Liz and my Mom had the Caribbean Lobster while Hal and I had the BBQ ribs and chicken. We knew they would love their meal and they were so happy we showed them our favorite place to eat in Charlotte Amalie.
The views from Paradise Point are spectacular! VOTED #1 spot for frozen drinks in the "Best of the V.I." overlooking the beautiful harbor of Charlotte Amalie.
Its a great place to relax and enjoy one of their fabulous frozen drink on the large observation deck. Make sure you bring your camera! The grill menu offers great sandwiches, salads and finger food!
Favorite Dish: Good sandwiches and great frozen drinks
It's all you can eat for only $9.99. Really home made delicious food and I ate until I had stomach ache!! Just couldn't stop eating!!
Everything is fresh made, so it's better you call ahead to make reservations, so you don't have to wait for the food. It's definetely a must go!!
Favorite Dish: Everything was really delicious and it's very hard to pick a favorite dish.
He has everything there, chicken, fish, pork, beef... So it's for anyone that enjoys a good homemade cooking.
No matter what time of day, or where you are... everyone loves ice cream! Although we are always up for an enjoyable ethnic food delight, Sarah and I rarely pass up the chance to have an ice cream. We were lucky enough to run into Cold Stone Creamery in Charlotte Amalie, at the Port of $ale shopping center.
Stop in for a cone if you are in town!
As we came in from the charter, I heard someone calling Blythe Spirit on the radio. I knew my first cousin had a boat by that name, so we called too, and found that they were in a marina in St. Thomas waiting for parts to fix their steering which had to be imported from Italy. So we met them for lunch in the restaurant next to the marina before we left to fly home and they told us all about their adventures in getting there.
Favorite Dish: We had sandwiches, but I don't remember what they were.
Ate Thanksgiving dinner here in 2003 and had a great meal with a casual Caribbean flare…Gladys and all the lovely ladies at the café were a delight…
Favorite Dish: Gladys makes a mean homemade hot sauce that's the bomb....
We went to a little sandwich/hamburger place in Havensight called the Delly Deck and had lunch and talked about boats. The sign out front said "Restrooms are Only for Customers"
Favorite Dish: I had a philly cheese steak ($11), and wanted potato salad, but they gave me fries instead. Bob had a tuna sandwich ($8.50) and fries. Dave had a mahi mahi sub and potato salad ($12.00) and iced tea ($2.00). That's what we all should have gotten. He insisted on paying for the meal, but he let Bob leave the tip.
Oceana is a fine dining restaurant set on the seaside patio of a historic house (former Russian Consulate) in Frenchtown. It offers a beautiful ocean view and amazing global cuisine. It was recommended to us by many people, included our wedding planner. We were not disappointed. Our evening in Oceana was very special with delicious food and wine.
Favorite Dish: I had -
Australian Lamb Sirloin with a porcini mushroom and white truffle polenta,
Vidalia onion - fennel compote and lamb bordelaise...$28.00
Great atmosphere. Beautiful stone construction with wooden accents. Bar is nice. Dining area lovely and elegant. Service is exceptional and food quality and presentation is outstanding. I've eaten there multiple times and the quality is consistent while the menu varies.
Favorite Dish: Wish I had a picture but you can see one on their inviting website. Menu included. Good wine selection as well.
Hunger and thirst forced us to leave our comfortable room at Secret Harbour Beach Resort even though we really only wanted to sleep and it was raining badly. Still it was good that we left, like this we had the chance to try out the hotel's Blue Moon Café and experience what happens when US style customer service goes "over the top".
The location right on the water's edge is lovely. The food was good, a bit pricey though I think. What drove us crazy, however, was our waitress' friendliness. She was a bit too enthusiastic and answered "Absolutely" to every "Thank you" we said. After a while I couldn't stand it anymore. I wanted to kick her as soon as the word came out of her mouth. Absolutely annoying! ;)
Favorite Dish: I had a nice ceasar salad followed by a simple tomato pasta dish. Both were good. Thomas had a duck dish he really enjoyed washed down with a terrible "Virgin Island Ale". We paid approx. 80$ for this meal.
Good drinks, cold beer served in ice buckets, good happy hour. Food is good too with some decent local specialities. Nice breeze off harbor with view. Good place to socialize with friends and to enjoy an informal lunch or dinner.
Favorite Dish: Appetizers are good
But I recommend the Mango Banana chicken or the steaks or the fresh fish/shellfish dishes. Coconut shrimp good too.
Go to Happy Hour.
We did not eat there, but had some drinks.
Their Berry Berry (Chambord, Blackberry liquor, rum, blueberries and strawberries) was just delicious and also tried the island's drink: Bushwhacker - wasn't too crazy about it.
The food looked good (we took a pick on tables next to us...) The price wasn't bad...
the atmosphere is so cool, for kids and adults alike. It is right near the beach so you have the island tropic atmosphere. The people are so nice, and the food is delicious. It's a bit pricey if you take the whole family but well worth it.
Favorite Dish: angel hair pasta with roasted tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil and parmesan cheese with Shrimp 19.00. This was incredible. The pasta was cooked perfectly, and the shrimp was awesome. Everything was fresh and tasted amazing.
Owned and operated by a local radio DJ and his counterpart from the states , Jack's has the island's best Wings and although the scantilly clad women are scarce (because 80 % of the population are medically obese and would not look right in short shorts and tank tops) a la Hooters, the food is worth it.
Favorite Dish: MY GOSH MAN PAY ATTENTION... THE WINGS I SAY ....THE WINGS!!
We came across this place when we took the Skyline to the top of the mountain in the St. Thomas harbor. To be honest the area at the top started off a little scary with very few people roaming the shops. But, we found the restaurant (the one on the lower level) and decided to sit for a second and grab a drink.
Within the next 1/2 hour the place went from empty to full as the sun started to set and a band started warming up. The food was nothing great, just decent bar type fare, but to listen to a live band with the view up there was nothing short of fantastic.
Favorite Dish: The fish and chips were pretty good.
