This place was on our list and did not disappoint! We started with the tempura and crab cakes and finished with the sea bass. It was a wonderful experience and the drinks were also fantastic. We are planning a stop in St. Thomas on our way to St. John next time just to eat here.

This restaurant is.....ok (?). The menu is unique and the vibe is wonderful. However, the food was just OK in my opinion. The Sand Bar at Havana Blue is by far and away the highlight in the food arena here (separate review for Sand Bar). Havana Blue is the more "up scale" of the places to eat at the resort but it still wasn't all that fancy. The menu had some interesting choices and they turned out to be good.....but nothing that a restaurant in Red Hook won't give you. It was worth the one visit but not worthy of a repeat.

We're glad you enjoyed your experience, Dave. Thank you for taking the time to review HAVANA BLUE as well as SandBar. However, it's disappointing that HAVANA BLUE didn't make a stronger impression on you. A meal with us should be perfectly prepared, full of surprising & unique flavors and unparalleled in quality. We may have missed the mark this time, but if you do return to St. Thomas we'd love another chance to prove our worth.

Thank you again,
HAVANA BLUE Management

We choose Havana Blue to celebrate our last night of an 8 day vacation. What a great choice! The environment is great - fun people, nice décor, open air, but covered seating, and a lovely view. The 10 of us agreed the food was the best we had all week. It pays to travel with people who share. I'd pick the snapper over the sea bass, but both were awesome. Our waiter was knowledgeable, attentive and very customer service oriented.

We've been fortunate enough to be coming to St Thomas for several years, and our trip would not be complete without a visit to Havana Blue. It's a taste of fine dining you'd expect in a major metropolis.

Located beachside at Marriott's Morningstar Beach, Havana Blue brings great food and drinks to a wonderful atmosphere full of the sights and sounds of the beach. The pricing is what you'd expect from a fine restaurant (mid $30s per entrée) and a menu that had something for everyone. Their mojito flank steak is always a big hit with our crowd, and my favorite is the miso sea bass, which was amazing. If you consider yourselves "foodies" (as we do), the menu will not disappoint.

The appetizers were great, and there's even a kids menu with great options for the little ones. They also have a great wine list and signature cocktails.

Our server, Dylan, was very attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant.

I'd recommend getting an earlier seating so you can see the sunset and possible see the cruise ships (if they're in port that day) leave the harbor.

In conclusion, if you have an appreciation for fine dining, Havana Blue is a place you'll want to check out when you're at St Thomas!
