“Most Romantic Meal in St. Thomas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

My husband & I ate here for our anniversary. We had a table where we could hear the ocean, which was really romantic. Our waitress, Mary, was excellent. I had the tuna trinity & my husband had yucca encrusted mahimahi; both were great. For dessert, we had the chocolate fondante--right up my alley because it was all dark chocolate and had blueberries on the side. It was the BEST dessert we had during our stay. We were not charged for it for our anniversary. In all, our experience at Havana Blue was AWESOME!! We have eaten there several times before on previous trips and always had a great experience!

“not worth it given its price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

I went there with my husband few weeks ago while we were staying in st thomas for our vacation. It is fancy restaurant and has a nice view. But, that's all, honestly food was really bad given its price However, service was really good : ) (but not perfect, Server spilled my cocktail while she transfer from serving plate to my side)

We ordered several seafood dishes such as fried calamari and ceviche for appetizer. Ceviche was just okay but not that impressive. Fried calamari was in a condition not that we expected...it was not crispy at all, looks like fried long time ago and just serve us with microwave warm up. As price was as high as in top restaurants in NYC, we definitely expect more on their food quality.. As similar with appetizer, main dishes were not that impressive. The dishes looked like not that fresh and not hot enough, made me to think that they pre-made it and just warm up...my husband ordered the day special food "Seafood plate" which was $78 but except lobster tail, everything was not that fresh. As same with appetizer, fried seafoods were not crispy at all. I would say, this place is good for someone who cares a atmosphere (you can see the beach while you are eating), but bad for some one who wants to eat pricy but elegant, up-scale food.

One another drawback was...this restaurant is open-place, which means you have to worry about mosquitos while you are eating!! Also, the place was really hot before sunset...

DJ0708, while we're very pleased to hear you enjoyed the atmosphere as well as our superb waitstaff, it's a surprise to hear your meal was not impressive. If we missed the mark on quality for you, we want to apologize. Typically our guests rave about our cooking, which is always made fresh with the finest ingredients, never re-heated. Did you let your server know you weren't happy with your meal? We're always happy to make things right; all you have to do is let us know.

We hope your stay in St. Thomas was lovely, and if you find yourself here again, please keep us in mind. We'd love another chance to show you what we're truly like.

Best wishes,
HAVANA BLUE Management

“The Sea Bass!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

We had such a wonderful time that we went back for our last night on the Island. Havana Blue is right on the beach with a wonderful view, but call ahead to get a table facing the beach. HB is the best when there are not a lot of people, during the week or off-peak hours make the meal not just good, but wonderful!

“Awesome awesome awesome!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Thank you Havana Blue for a magical night in the VI! My boyfriend I went for dinner during our stay at the Marriott and we loved it! We started off with a drink or two at the bar so we could sit back and watch the sunset - which is awesome by the way. The drinks were great and the bartender was friendly. Once we got to our table, we were so happy! They had seated us right next to the window so we could almost taste the salt water and feel the sand. It was a fabulous location and watching the sunset while having a cocktail was fantastic. James, our waiter, was wonderful. Very, VERY informative about the menu (including the specials) and had alot of suggestions. For an appetizer we shared the langosta tostada (fancy little lobster and shrimp tostadas) and they were delicious. We wish we'd ordered more than 3! For entrees, my BF got the mahi maho mahi (Malaysian-influenced dish of great fish and rice) and I got the relleno snapper (chorizo and shrimp stuffed red snapper). It was all delicious! We also got the friend plantains because I love them so much and they were every bit as delicious as I thought they'd be! For dessert we shared the Brazilian carnivale (a fancy banana split with all kinds of amazing icecreams and sauces). All in all, a wonderful experience. My boyfriend and I have eaten at some amazing restaurants and this was definitely up there with the best. We loved it - go and check it out!
