    Absolutely excellent meal. We tried half the menu and everything was delicious! Put this on your must do list for St. John.

    This restaurant is phenomenal. Our only regret is not eating here until our last night on St John; if we’d found it sooner we may have eaten here more than once, it’s that good. The food is really fresh, and is so tasty with Caribbean flavors. The chef prepares wonderful dishes. The cocktails are good too! The staff are really friendly and cheerful. It was a great dining experience.

    Great spot in the middle of Cruz Bay (the Open Table address might be incorrect--the restaurant is in the heart of Cruz Bay, just a short walk from the ferry terminal--check the restaurant's website for the right location). Tapas style Caribbean plates--from a terrific green salad, to shrimp fritters, to a popcorn chicken to die for. Service is attentive. Smaller place and street side, but the noise not overwhelming. Extensive Caribbean influenced cocktail menu. Reasonable prices (not always the case in St. John). Highly recommended.

    We had a wonderful time at The Refinery, all of the food was delicious! Be sure to save room for the Johnny Cake Ice Cream Sandwiches for dessert. The live music added to the atmosphere and the staff were all friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back during future visits to St John.

    Our experience at the Refinery was excellent! This tapas style restaurant serves very authentic Caribbean cuisine and every dish we tried was wonderful. Our top choices were the cucumber salad, seafood fritters and Smith House popcorn chicken.

    We met the owner at LaTapas’ bar who told us about the restaurant and we tried it the next night! It didn’t disappoint! I had the best Dark & Stormy evah! The food was delicious! The Tempura Fritter was to die for! Can’t wait to go back. Not bad for a guy from JP!!
