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.

    Beautiful views, great service. Drinks were good. Food was disappointing. Mahi bites overcooked & tough. Garlic bread nothing special. Only lobster was in a fettuccine rich sauce. Menu was not as listed on open table, maybe changes weekly??

    The view is beautiful! We’ve dined at Mafolie a few times through the years. We were looking forward to our meal. I had the Cajun snapper and some of the ingredients listed on the menu lobster and cream sauce, were not on the plate. The snapper was very dry and bland. The lobster and shrimp pasta were ordinary. Our server was very nice!

    The ambience was warm and inviting. The atmosphere of the ships and ocean were beautiful. I was a little surprised to see a cat walking about the restaurant.However, it didn’t bother anyone just walked about restaurant quietly.

    I went at 8:20 on a Wednesday night. It was super calm, the staff was I credible (the host and my waiter), and the food was very well seasoned. I ordered the mahi mahi entree & plaintains, I really enjoyed it! The waiter also recommended the snapper for a future visit. I highly recommend. Fyi the night view of the restaurant is great but I recommend eating here before sundown for those not actually staying at the hotel. The daytime view is something you don't want to miss!

    This restaurant has a beautiful view, the hostesses are wonderful and have always bestowed a lovely table for us. This is a "go-to" restaurant for us when we have guests in town. However, we had a very poor experience the last time, and I have to write about it. The evening started out great when the hostess, at first seating our party of 4 at an upper level table even though I had requested a lower level viewside table, came back and moved our party to a lovely table on the lower level. The servers started out being very attentive, but as the evening went on and the restaurant got busier, we had to chase them down several times for wine, etc. We were halfway through our meals by the time our bottle of wine arrived. As for the food - normally I am quite satisfied, however this time, only my spouse was pleased with his baby back ribs. My oxtails were grisly, no meat and almost inedible (DONT ORDER THESE!). My guests both had the lobster/shrimp alfredo, which was all noodles and only about 4 peices of fish (Go to Brooks next time, if you want the best shrimp alfredo on the island}. Our guests paid for our meal, and we were mortified and embarrassed that their last night"s meal was so poor, after all of the great meals we had eaten across the island all week. Will I stop going here? no. However, I know now _ Dont go on a Monday, and don't order the oxtails or the alfredo.

    This restaurant came highly recommended by my BIL. When we arrived, there were several tables open but told those required reservations. So I booked a table for 2 easily on OpenTable. However, we still had to wait 20+ minutes after the reservation time for the empty table. By then, The restaurant became very busy. The open air balcony dining was amazing- perfect music and noise level, lovely breeze, kind service, pleasant staff and outstanding food. My Cajun snapper was excellent, especially the sides of veggies and rice. The Caesar gem salad was very good as well. Hubby liked the ribs but they were heavily re-sauced. Unfortunately, our dining experience took much longer than necessary. We offered apologies, appreciation of our patience and were kindly told the kitchen was” backed up”. However, our meals were cool not even warm. There is no excuse for chilled dinners. The bar service took longer than expected also. I think they were slammed and overwhelmed that particular night. That 20+ minute delay being seated at an empty table created a 2+ hour dinner. Even so, I look forward to going back there on our next trip to St Thomas! I would say it’s the best food and view!

    If you want a stunning sunset view from the balcony overlooking Charlotte Amelie Harbor, and you do not care at all about the food, this is a wonderful restaurant. The staff are friendly and sweet and very attentive. The meal that I had was terrible. Salad drenched in dressing, and a pasta made with canned tomatoes that I could have cooked better at home. Really too bad. If an exceptional chef took over, this place would be hard to beat.

    The Mafolie is clearly a hotspot for the people staying at the hotel and appeared to be a local spot too. The staff was all very attentive and super friendly. There was frequently someone stopping by to ensure we had what we needed. The food was delicious and the ambience was relaxing. Several families, couples, and friend groups enjoying themselves throughout the evening. Excellent views of south townsite. Highly recommend!

    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.
