All I can say is if you visit St. Croix, this is a must Stop for dinner. The food is absolutely amazing. The owners run the restaurant and do all of the cooking. We ate at several restaurants while we were there on the Island but none as good as this one. You have try the Conch, it's the best... More

One of the better food + drinks combo in Fredericksted. This is my second trip to St. Croix and fourth trip to Villa Morales. Space is open, service is prompt and mojito is strong. Don't drink it on an empty stomach-it is the best one around. This place is much more affordable than over-rated sandwich deli scattered around...

Conch chowder and BBQ ribs are two of my favorites! The owners make you feel like part of their family. Two thumbs way up!

This restaurant is only open a few days a week. It seemed very popular-lots of people there, crowded, vibrant atmosphere. The wait staff was friendly. The food was only okay. All of us liked it fine, but nothing was a "wow" meal. I did have a delicious rum punch. It had a nice big bar, but no cocktail menu. It... More

I'm a local so I know where to go. Only open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, I'm there on one of those days every week. Open air, filled with locals and visitors there for Angie's good cooking and JT's charming hospitality.

Warmly greeted by the owner and welcomed to Villa Morales. Definitely a local place as everyone seemed to know everyone but was made to feel at home right away. The roast pork is excellent and the scallops were to die for. And the entrees were only $12-14. Definitely a place to stop by during a visit to the West End.

I have never had a bad meal at Villa Morales. With out a doubt the best Fried Chicken available. If the season is right, do not miss the Bread Fruit Tostones. They are something special.

I was glad to see this restaurant was still here as I used to visit it when I lived on the island 20 years ago. My husband declared, "it was his best meal on the island"! JT, the owner, is a gracious host. His wife cooks in the kitchen. We had curry chicken, fish, beans and rice and tostones and... More
