A beautiful, relaxing evening at The Blue Orchid! Restaurant. It is located in a restored Great House overlooking Magen's Bay! Go early and walk around the gardens first then enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant. No view at night because the restaurant is on the north side of the island overlooking Magen's Bay. Excellent food and a great wine... More

Went early for drinks and appetizers and it was so good we decided to stay for dinner. That ended up being one of the best decisions we've ever made. Everyone's meal was amazing! If you're visiting St. Thomas don't miss this great restaurant. You won't be disappointed. It's a small dining room with excellent views, but the high quality food... More

Start with a walk thru the gardens and up to the observation deck. Breathtaking to look in every direction. The food was excellent and the service as well.

We caught a hazy sunset upstairs on the balcony. It was windy, but a great view of Magens Bay! Great cocktails! We didn't have dinner here, so can't comment on the food.

One of our favorites. Food excellent, views outstanding. Gardens worth a walk through. Go before sunset to catch views.

My husband and I were able to visit this restaurant last week. We had one of the best meals of our vacation here. I had a Caribbean Martini as a cocktail and my husband had a Belgian beer. I had a caesar salad and tuna tartare to start. My husband had a soup that was on special and shared the... More

As others have commented, the food at the Blue Orchid is really terrific. We arrived before the kitchen opened (5:00), so spent a few minutes walking around the gardens. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Although there is no outdoor seating for dining, there are decks where you can look out - and if you get there early as... More

Was even better than advertised!! I had the seafood ravioli, which was incredible. My girlfriend had the ribeye, which also was delicious. What makes this restaurant special is that there is not another place like it on island. The ambiance is really great - it is inside dining and although we ate there too late to appreciate it, I heard... More

Last night we were blessed with having dinner at this wonderful restaurant to celebrate my birthday. (We have been here before and it was my choice for my special day). Before we could stop gasping at the views Erin appeared to get us cocktails. We ordered special martini's, a pate plate and a cheese plate to "snack on" while having... More

Another restaurant recommended by our timeshare concierge, Joe. This was my favorite meal and dining experience on the island. It is set overlooking beautiful Magen's Bay. It is also the sight of St. Peter's Botanical Garden, a lovely spot to enjoy the flora of St. Thomas. There is an observation deck to enjoy the views and take photos of one... More
