Visited Paradise Cafe last January and loved it. We ended up back here again on a return trip to St Croix. Experience was great again and the owner Tom is so much fun to chat with. He makes you feel right at home. I love the Conch there...yummy! And the seafood platter we had was absolutely wonderful. A must go... More

Hours are variable, and it is a small place. But the conch fritters, in season, are the best. The other food is generally above average.

We went here for a late lunch and had wonderful food and service. The restaurant is hard to find but was worth it. The owner was friendly and helpful and after eating we spoke with him, very knowledgeable about the island. Glad we took the time to find this restaurant.

A little disappointed. Used to be one of our favorite spots to visit when in town. No longer the same.

I'm very sorry that you did not have a good experience at my restaurant. Please tell me exactly what you did not enjoy so that I can fix it. I have strived to keep everything the same as it always has been even with St Croix's economic downturn the last few years. We have lost key staff and have had... More

We didn't get around to lunch until after 2, when some other restaurants were closed, so we tried this place based on some other TripAdvisor reviews. She had a very good fish sandwich - grilled not fried. He had a gyro which was also very good. Both came with a side of macaroni salad which was as good as home-made.... More

We stumbled across this cafe while wondering around Christiansted and tried it on a whim. We were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. Tom was our server and I think possibly the owner. He was a really nice guy and a great representation of the laid back and friendly culture of the island. Our lunch was amazing and I... More

We went for the fish sandwich for lunch and were not disappointed. The fish was served on a warm French bread roll with the option of topping it with cheese, grilled peppers, and onions. A choice of potato salad, cole slaw, or fries were included. If you like fish, this is a good spot in Christiansted. The sandwich was $13.... More
