St. Thomas Restaurants

Places To Explore Dining GuideWhen frequent visitors or residents are asked to name their favorite restaurant on St. Thomas the answer inevitably is never just one. Experienced chefs on the island create mouth-watering entrees. The selection they offer varies from continental cuisine to French, Chinese, Japanese, Caribbean, Italian and Mexican foods, just to name a few. Several restaurants are located in Charlotte Amalie and Frenchtown. Those located along the hillsides above Charlotte Amalie offer spectacular views of the harbor at night. Red Hook is another popular destination for restaurants. All large hotels have at least one restaurant and resorts often have several. So many restaurants and so little time. You can definitely dine at a different restaurant every day of your vacation!

Restaurants vary greatly on the island. Dinner prices (for 2 people, including a minimal bar tab) ranges from $25-$40 for casual bar/restaurant to $50-$100 for a more formal restaurant and up to $125+ for appetizers, dinner and desert at a restaurant with great dining/view/service. Tip for wait staff is usually 18% of total bill. Parties of 6 or greater often have tip automatically added to the bill by the restaurant; the 6 party tip added is usually between 15-18%.
