“Everything but the bathrooms...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

For someone who's expectations were very high based on prior reviews, this was an overall delightful dining experience. While it's important to remember that you are dining al fresco and the setting is magnificent, you will experience the climate whether it be comfortable or muggy (as it was the night my wife and I were there). The service, the wine, and the food were excellent. We enjoyed the squid ink pasta appetizer (filling!) and the beet ravioli appetizer (very small serving but delicious). We reflexively went with a bottle of the Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre (red) but in retrospect would have been better served by a chilled white that evening. Whild most folks do not go to a restaurant for the "bathroom experience," it should be pointed out that the restrooms for this place are outside and up a flight of stairs - perhaps a bit of a bummer on a rainy night. This is the only thing point that would keep from from giving this an "outstanding" review. I hope this helps!

“Exquisite Every Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Zozo's has set the bar for restaurants in the VI very high. Each meal is delicious and beautifully presented. The location is to die for (in the ruins of one of the largest sugar mills in St. John) and makes even the most seasoned Virgin Island traveler and local feel like they're someplace truly special.

“Beautiful Setting and Exquisite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

My husband and I cannot say enough about this restaurant. The setting in Caneel Bay (this is their new location) with the deer, donkeys & chickens set high in the resort sugar mills is just amazing. The restaurant renovations look amazing with an open setting where you can see the beautiful Caneel Bay grounds and the Bay. The service is outstanding. The wine selection phenomenal and the food was exquisite. The price was that of most on the island and considering what you are paying for, this restaurant is reasonably priced. This is a must when visiting the island.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Terrific Food, good view, classy place. Highly recommend. Good variety on the menu. They have a very good wine list, especially for the Caribbean. The wine prices in the islands are typically higher, but at ZoZo's they were cheaper than in the States!

Our steaks were excellent, the side dishes terrific, the staff first class. If you like places like Flemings in the states you'll love ZoZo's in St. John.

“Smack diddly delish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Best. Meal. Ever.

Not even kidding. Visiting St. John for the first time, and everyone raved about ZoZo's. We couldn't find it, then realized it was in the "new" sugar mill location. Gorgeous view, romantic atmosphere, yet casual enough to relax and enjoy. Then the food... I'm tempted to go back to USVI just for this restaurant.

Win.
