About U.S. Virgin Islands Restaurants
The USVI offers a wide variety of dining options, from upscale gourmet seafood restaurants to bare-bones beach bars – with most falling somewhere in the middle. Due to the high cost of importing even commonplace foods, dining out is not cheap, and there's not a whole lot of ethnic diversity. But with over 300 restaurants, cafes and snack bars, you won't go home hungry or dissatisfied.
The high-end restaurants have primarily "surf and turf" (meat and seafood) menus, often with a unique interpretation of that theme: Latin-Asian, French-Asian, neo-Caribbean, or old-world European. And fittingly for a laid-back tropical island, there's nothing stiff or snooty about the top restaurants; even the finest, priciest places have a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
If you're on a budget or really want to go barefoot, there are plenty of casual beach bars, wing shacks, hole-in-the-wall West Indian diners and even food trucks selling pates and callaloo.
