I want to hold my wedding reception at a restaurant; Mafolies and Havana Blue are a few of my options. St Thomas locals weren't that enthusiastic about Mafolies and Havana Blue seems to be rather new. Can anyone give me there opinion on Havana Blue,Mafolie or any other idea?

Tell me what you think.

I am also getting married on STT and was recently visiting the island in June. We checked out both Havana Blue and Mafolie's for possible locations to hold our rehearsal dinner at. Havana Blue is right on the beach and is very nice. Although we didn't eat there, they seem to have an interesting menu, but very expensive. The restaurant is all open-air and the night that we were there it was very warm with no breezes. We thought it was a bit uncomfortable. However, the restaurant is very nice and would provide for a classy reception.

On our last night in STT, we ate at Mafolie's. The view is spectacular and the restaurant is very lovely. The food was pretty good and the service was excellent. We will most likely go with this place since the view was fantastic.

Hope that helps and let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks. That really helps a lot. Did you visit any other restaurants in STT. Did you visit or hear about the Old Stone Farm house.

Does Mafolies have an area for dancing(Big or small)?

We also ate at Lotus (in Red Hook) which had excellent food...but I don't think it would be great for a wedding. We checked out Iggie's at Bolongo Bay, but decided not to eat there since it was pretty expensive and didn't have a lot of vegetarian options (I'm vegetarian). However, it's right on the beach and would make for a fun beach wedding. Definitely room for dancing. There's also another restaurant at the Marriott, Coco Joes, that looked very nice and is right on the beach. It's not as fancy as Havana Blue and we didn't try the food there. We drove passed the Old Stone Farmhouse, but didn't eat there. It's supposed to be very good.

I think Mafolies could have dancing. It's not large, but depending on the size of your wedding, it might be doable.

Feel free to email if you want to chat more!

try Old Stone Farmhouse, Oceanna, and maybe the restaurant at Secret Harbor (Blue Moon, I think)

I had my wedding reception at the Blue Moon Cafe at Secret Harbour. It was wonderful. The ceremony was right on their beach-making it easy for everyone to just walk right over.

Cocktail hour was on the patio we then went to the covered open air restaurant. The food was fabulous! We set it up so everyone had a choice of items. The Bluemoon even personalized a menu with our names on the front.

Check out their website-there is a link from Secret Harbour
