Bella has consistently been good over the years. Now back in business after the two hurricanes they are trying a somewhat different approach. This month was Austrian food theme. While none of our party had the Austrian entrees because we all opted for their Red Snapper Provençal, which was outstanding by the way, we all had Austrian side dishes such as red cabbage, sauerkraut, potato pancake and bread dumplings.among others. They all went surprisingly well with the fish so it was quite a different eating experience.
The only caution we had is that the excellent fish was the only meal for vegetarians (who eat fish) and the sauerkraut had pieces of ham in it which l liked although my wife did not and the vegetarian couple we were with were somewhat surprised.
They are also open for breakfast and lunch since many restaurants on the island have still not reopened and those menus look interesting.

Bella Blue used to be an excellent and nice place for brunch, lunch, and dinner pre-storm, but it is not worth the trip now. We went expecting a nice dinner and were served terrible food from a limited and unimaginative menu. My food was poorly prepared, poorly executed, and unappetizing. Quality and prep were just not there, even though we were trying hard to make it work.

Lesson learned - only judge St Thomas restaurants based on post-Irma reviews. The two places we had dinner this week had terrific pre-Irma reviews. Post-Irma I would be careful. Bella Blu tries hard but New Years Eve dinner was over priced and service too slow. The food was fine with the gnocchi and mussels being very good. We hope it can return to the restaurant it was pre-Irma.

My husband and I had the smoked salmon and the Bacchus salads. We had spinach and arugula in there, our favorites. They were delicious. Well done. But we couldn't understand why it took almost 40 mins to get two salads prepared.
There is ac inside a comfortable cozy seating area and also ample seating outside a well covered area.
Service aside, the food was delicious.

This is an amazing restaurant. Not our first time here and the food and the owners are wonderful. Not far from downtown. Well worth visiting. Excellent menu. We will be back on the cruise.
