The hotel's acclaimed Mafolie Restaurant offers an enticing dinner menu of island favorites including Kalalloo Soup, Starfruit Drizzled Mango Avacado Salad, and locally caught seafood specials such as Fresh Wahoo with a creamy Dorea Sauce and Fresh Caribbean Lobster .

Our reputation and island flavor didn't happen over night. The staff at the Mafolie Restaurant is referred to often as the Mafolie Family for a reason. With most of our kitchen staff being with us for more than a decade, we have confidence that Chef Manny's island flavors will have something for everyone.

The Mafolie Restaurant truly doesn't have a bad seat in the house. Our expansive view is on full display from every seat in our open air restaurant deck. Enjoy a refreshing Dark and Stormy at the bar and feel free to lounge before taking a seat with a Caribbean appetite.

    Dinner at this restaurant was wonderful, starting with a view of Charlotte Amolie. Our meals were tasty, delicious and portion size was good. Our waitress was helpful with questions about the menu and the service was excellent.

    Our family had dinner at the Mafolie Restaurant on our last evening of our trip here to St. Thomas four years ago. When we came back this year, everyone asked if we could go there again for a dinner. It did not disappoint and everyone had a very enjoyable evening.

    I specifically told the hostess that I made my reservation through open table and to please check me in. She failed to do so and this has now put a damper on the evening. I see that no points were earned for this reservation and I find this unfair since it was the hostess’s fault and not mine. I’m hoping open table can rectify this error and award the points earned.

    The location and view spectacular! Used to be one of the top spots in USVI! Bus boys were doing chin-ups on the bars holding up the tent. Bar Busser had an attitude. Food was marginal. We have gone every year and will not go back - seems like new ownership

    Disappointed with the food. Restaurant boasts of specializing in seafood so we looked forward to perfectly cooked fresh fish. Unfortunately the salmon and swordfish were grossly over cooked. Thankfully both came with a tasty sauce which made it palatable. Very overpriced for over cooked food. I’d recommend French Quarter Bistro. The fish was perfectly cooked and the prices were very reasonable

    My 3rd visit and everything was fantastic. From the hostess to the waitress the chef and all staff. Each of us had a different entree and all were fabulous. I had the Coconut Crusted Red Snapper and pretty much licked the plate. The presentation was beautiful. Cheers to the chef!! Well worth the trip. Beautiful open air views with awesome Caribbean breezes. I can’t say enough about Mafolie. Excellent!!!

    The good: The view was great and the food was good (though not great). They had sorrel, which was the biggest plus for us. The bad: It took over 30 minutes for a server to come talk to us. Then they were out of easy to find drink related items (mango which was available at multiple fruit stands on our drive there and amaretto, which was available at grocery store we went to), so we could not get the drinks we wanted that were specifically on the menu. Maybe we caught them on a bad day, but overall, we were not impressed.

    Ordered lobster and 1hr and 45 min later they told us they were out and to order something else. Service was extremely slow drinks were super strong to the point they were just not enjoyable. Overall the food was just ok and a bit over priced.

    Amazing food and view! We had been here several years ago and returned for another visit. Obviously the views are amazing, especially watching day turn into night. Try to go at sunset, though it was a little cloudy on our most recent visit. The conch fritters are wonderful starters. The creole snapper and stuffed salmon were exceptional. Our server was great, too, with wonderful recommendations. Delicious mixed drinks are a plus. It’s a must stop when you’re visiting St. Thomas.

    The restaurant was lovely and food was good but the service was extremely slow. I don’t know if they were short handed but we waited forever for our cocktails. The food was slow coming out. Service was slow all night. Next time I’m on the island I’ll look before I reserve.

    One of the greatest views you will ever encounter. Service was as good as I’ve ever had. Would have preferred a different table since we were seated next to server’s station and there was a lot of traffic behind me. But everything was so pleasant I wanted to go with the flow. Lobster stuffed with crabmeat was simple and delicious. Companion had creole snapper. Very good. And did I mention the view?

    We timed our visit to this hidden gem so that we would be able to watch the sunset over the harbor and Charlotte Amalie. The views never disappoint! The reservation process worked well online, and I was very happy because we were able to change reservations without confusion. They plainly expected us when we walked in, and had a table already set up for us. The staff were excellent and attentive. They were friendly and helpful, and did a great job taking care of our party of five. The serving sizes were more than large enough for hearty appetites. The kallaloo with fungi was delicious -- definitely worth trying if you are even a little bit food adventurous and want to know more about Caribbean fare. The seafood linguine was top quality, with pasta cooked to the right texture and a generous amount of seafood in a delicious sauce. The scallops were large, juicy, and neither under- nor over-cooked. My husband's steak was cooked properly and presented attractively. The garlic bread was very yummy. We tried both the spicy and the regular options, and while the spicy garlic topping had excellent flavor, most of us found it just a little bit too spicy for us. Sadly, we did not save room for dessert. But we will be back!
