The other day Jack, Loopy and I were helping Ed with his boat and decided to have a quick lunch at Carigas. Luckily the place made it thru the hurricanes and is open for business. We had a great lunch in the company of guys...More

Tucked away in a boat yard, on the water. It is a little hard to find, but a true taste of the local island vibe. Food was good, but the drinks were a little watered down. The waitress was awesome and we enjoyed our meal....More

First, it's a little hard to locate, but your efforts will be rewarded. I had made a listing of places to try while staying on the east end of St. Thomas and CaRiGa's looked like my breakfast spot. It is a great choice. It's quiet....More

We decided to revisit this restaurant for dinner after stopping by earlier to pick up an item left the day before on our boat trip. It wa a great decision. You can't beat an open air restaurant with walls of mangroves providing privacy and shade....More

Great hidden place by some boats. Tasty food for a fun island experience. I definitely recommend whatever daily special they whip up.

Cariga's is not fine dining - it's great local color. To find them, find the Food Center in Red Hook. Next to the Food Center is a (currently closed) gas station. Across the street is the Independent Boat Yard. Cariga's is set behind the boat...More

Quirky little joint just off Red Hook Rd (Hwy 32), hidden away toward the back of the Independent Boat Yard & Marina. Frequented by locals, Cariga's is a nice alternative to overpriced restaurants that mostly cater to tourists. The staff and other patrons were fun...More
