Caribbean
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 and Fresh Caribbean Lobster and Caribbean twists on classic dishes, like Jerk Chicken Arancini.

Our reputation and island flavor didn't happen over night. Our establishment began in the 1970s and continues to evolve with changing tastes.

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.

    The food, ambience and service were all excellent. We started with the kale caesar salad, the mango/avocado salad and the mussels which were in a sauce that was similar to clam chowder base. They were all very good. My daughter had the sugar cane shrimp, my wife had the pan seared Mahi and I had the jerk salmon. We all enjoyed our meals, the server was very pleasant and the view was terrific. I'd definitely recommend Mafolie and would go back again.

    The view was spectacular. The server was pleasant and efficient. The snapper dinner was fantastic. The chicken in the creole was chewy and the cake was dry and the sugar on the cream Brule was burned. Over all it was still a good experience.

    Every year when we come to St Thomas, Malfolie is on our list of restaurants to go to. I made a reservation literally 15 minutes before we wanted to dine, and it was available. We arrived early, like around 5:30, to enjoy the incredible view. I think it’s the best view on the island. We like to go when cruise ships are in port, because when the sun goes down you can watch them all lit up as they pull away. So pretty! When we arrived, we were greeted by the sweetest young man ( sorry I can’t remember his name). We wanted to eat at the bar, which was full at the time, I assume because of happy hour, but he invited us to sit at a small table near the bar with a great view. He immediatly took our drink order, so we could sit there and wait for two seats at the bar to open. We each had a cocktail, both good, and only had to wait around 15 minutes for the bar to empty. From there, I was a little unhappy with the service. Rosie, the bartender, seemed a little annoyed to serve us at the bar. Every time we tried to get her attention or ask a question, she said “ I’ll be right with you” even though there were only like 5 people at the bar at the time. So we ordered right away when we did get her attention. My husband had the mahi mahi tacos and I had the grilled mahi mahi dinner. The tacos were good, but very small, but they were on the happy hour menu, so I guess we should have expected that. But my mahi mahi dinner was very good. We had a glass of Chardonnay with dinner. I wanted a glass of rose, but they didn’t have any?? Should definitely offer rose with a menu that is mostly fish. All in all, we will return, but hope Rosie seems happier to be there. Dinner, with two cocktails, one wine, the one appetizer and one main, was around 80 dollars. Pretty good value. But the view is was you really go for.

    Restaurant would best be described as tired and stale. Drinks were a waste of money, like a $10 cup of kool aid. Food was mediocre at best. The view is spectacular but that’s really all the good I can say for the place.

Wonderful vibes and service from the staff, reasonable pricing, food was delicious and the ambience was very welcoming and homey with wonderful views. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to experience the Caribbean culture of St Thomas !

    As always it was great. April at the bar is the best on the island in my book. All the servers have such a great personality and make your night special. I know soup may not sound good on a tropical island but try the French Onion it is at the top of our list.

    Absolutely stunning view high on cliffs overlooking Charlotte Amalie. Everything we ate was amazing and the French Onion Soup was so good along with red snapper, mahi bites and salad. And yes the crème brûlée was good too. Our waitress was amazing except I think she could have use more help she had a lot of tables but we enjoyed it island time

    My husband and I ate there last night. Our server was Swayne. He was very personable and informative. I had the soup and shrimp skewers with rice and veggies. My husband had the arancini balls and ribs with mash and veggies and fried plantains. For dessert we had passion fruit creme brulee and rum cake with ice cream. Portions were good. Drinks were okay, a little weak. We enjoyed the view at sunset. We eat at Mafolie each time we're on St Thomas over the years.

    The food is good, but the view is exceptional.. a very comfortable place to dine, with a great bar and service. The menu recently changed so our waitress was helpful in steering us to better selections. I have visited this restaurant over many years, and it still is one of our favorite places.
