Dining in St. John: The Top 3 Restaurants

  • You’ve probably selected St. John as your vacation destination for the pristine beauty of its natural parks, its enchanting villas, or its exciting snorkeling options, but don’t forget that you can also enjoy an excellent meal in this piece of paradise.  If you’re planning a trip and want to experience the finest dining in St. John, be sure to check out one (or all!) of these top five eateries.

    In the 18th century, St. John and the Virgin Islands were home to a burgeoning sugar industry.  Today, all that remains of the sugar mills is the ramshackle beauty of their ruins.  ZoZo’s  at The Sugar Mill Restaurant, Caneel Bay Hotel and Resort, affords you gorgeous views from its perch atop the ruins, as well as succulent Italian pastas, seafood and Caribbean delicacies.  ZoZo’s chefs use herbs and spices native to the region in inspiring ways, and the restaurant’s open-air floor plan allows you to enjoy them with this restaurant’s other secret ingredient: an island breeze.

    Located at Gallow’s Point, just around the bend from the ferry landing at Cruz Bay, you’ll find Ocean 362, one of the best options in fine and local dining St. John has to offer.  Ocean 362 brings you contemporary American Cuisine by world-renowned Chef Ramesh Pillai on the waters edge at Gallows Point. Named after the stunning water views and the resort’s address the menu features dishes inspired by both the land and the sea.  Does anything say “Caribbean vacation” better than “regionally-sourced fresh seafood?”  All of this gourmet greatness can be had in a breezy, beautiful, open-air setting.

    If you’re itching for some excitement with your dinner, look no further than Shipwreck Landing.  This tucked-away island gem serves up dishes both familiar and exotic with live music most weekends and Wednesday nights.  Their house band has even played the St. John’s Blues Festival!  If you’re feeling adventurous, try one of their creative fusion dishes like “Jeriyaki Mahi Mahi,” a dish that combines the famous Caribbean jerk spices and teriyaki with tantalizing results.  For a local twist on calamari, try the conch fritters!  If your traveling from the Cruz Bay area it’s a bit of a drive over the mountain to Coral Bay but it a fun adventure your not likely to forget anytime soon.

    While these are some of the best dining selections in St. John, this list is by no means the sum total of all that St. John has to offer!  Check out the site for more dining, travel, and accommodation inspiration!
