As the name suggests, this family-owned restaurant is one of the best places in Cruz Bay for fresh fish. At least six fresh fish specials are offered each night. The list is drawn up just before opening to ensure diners receive the day's freshest catch. Typical choices include salmon, wahoo, swordfish, snapper, shark, mahi-mahi and escolar. Juicy steaks, chicken and pasta dishes round out the menu. Be sure to try Fish Trap chowder: snapper, white wine and a melange of spices go into this creamy stew. The house special dessert is the sumptuous coconut cake with rum caramel sauce. Smart casual. Reservations necessary for parties of six or more.
