Incredible view of Magens Bay, St John and the BVI from the deck of this wonderful restaurant. Try to be there for sunset! Excellent menu.

Had nice relaxing Sunday night dinner. The Chilean sea bass is excellent. Our waitstaff however was a bit off which is not the norm for this establishment. Sunset is the best time to go for spectacular views of the ocean. Treat yourself to a pleasurable evening amongst the locals and enjoy dinner.

Good food, almost 5 star. Filet was good. Seabass ok. Service ok. Tables are spread out so doesn't feel loud and crowded. Good place to go if you want to avoid loud crowded restaurants. Go during daytime before sunset as views are nice.

Stunning views, grounds, service, cuisine. The specials are truly "special", nothing of ordinary: one of our choices was a medium done swordfish with a white risotto, some magic herbs and aromas. Highly recommended !!!!

I'm pretty sure the view from the Observation Deck at the Blue Orchid is one of the best on the island. Luckily for us, we chose this place to eat our Thanksgiving dinner. The buffet served a good variety (turkey, prime rib and ham), plus all the fixings. They even had a "choose your own ingredients" pasta bar. The only... More

We tried the Pizza when they first started serving it and was horrible, uneatable .fast forward 6 months we thought maybe they got the idea of making Pizza and no it was just as bad. One of those only ate because we were hungry and we had brought it home. Never again.
