Seafood
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 specials such as Fresh Wahoo with a creamy Dorea Sauce and Fresh Caribbean Lobster .

Our reputation and island flavor didn't happen over night. The staff at the Mafolie Restaurant is referred to often as the Mafolie Family for a reason. With most of our kitchen staff being with us for more than a decade, we have confidence that Chef Manny's island flavors will have something for everyone.

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.

    I have been to mafolie restaurant before the storm and remember having such a wonderful time for a birthday dinner. This particular time I was hosting an out of town guest and let's just say there is a reason that phrases like "Island time" exist. My first complaint would be the no substitution on the dinner menu. I have been to restaurants where there are such stipulations but it is stated on the website and on menu that way i call ahead for those with dietary restrictions to see if I may be accommodated. Everything that came out the server(ashma) mouth seemed to be no we don't do that without even checking with the kitchen to accommodate my guests and me (6 total). The drinks were horrible. The amaretto sour had more sour mix than amaretto. Pina colada tasted spoil. The dinner rolls were Hawaiian rolls and they gave garlic spread. So imagine the sweet and garlicky taste together. Not a great combo. I ordered the lobster which came with rice and peas, asparagus, and plantain. The butter was simply butter no flavor. The asparagus, no flavor. The rice was great. I ended up asking for salt and pepper to give some little taste and that came in to-go packets. Our server overall was least attentive and unwilling to satisfy. The food runners made sure we got what we needed. Additionally as the night dwindled down we saw staff sitting on the lap of others in the dining area and there were still other guest besides my group in the restaurant and at the bar. The greatest thing about the night was the view. Subpar overall.

    Fabulous place and terrific food. My only criticism is that I wanted the flank steak but not the rice and veg that came with it. I wanted mashed potatoes and green beans but was told that there are no substitutions even though I was willing to pay more if necessary. So I ordered the chicken which came with what I wanted. Just didn't see what the big deal would have been.

    Food was good, but don’t go after 8 pm, everyone wants to go home and the service was not the best. Enjoyed the view a lot…but for us service is everything. They should not take reservations after 8 pm.

    The worst dining experience of our 10 days on the island. View is great but there are others just as beautiful. Food is meh. Service is horrendous. We are not picky, but when literally every course comes out incorrectly, and nobody seems to care, it's not a place to drop your vacation $$. Sorry we saved this for our last, 'special' night out. Would never, ever go back.

    The view was beautiful. The atmosphere was nice. The food wasn't bad. The service was terrible. Our waitress brought us our first drinks and never came back until it was time for desert. We all had both our drink glasses empty and had to ask another waitress to bring us our check.

    Could have been a wonderful dinner - ruined by abysmal service. They asked us if we wanted water; then we had to remind them twice to bring it. Ordered Manhattan cocktails - got something with bourbon, but not a Manhattan. Server forgot to bring garlic bread. Dinner was very long in coming from the kitchen. Had to remind the server twice to bring the bottle of wine we ordered - we were halfway through our meal before we got it. Didn't have the dessert we wanted, which was on the menu. Coffee was served lukewarm. Soup, ribs, and whole fried fish were very good. Service so frustrating that it overshadowed the food. Beautiful view of the harbor.

    It was our first time St Thomas and everyone told us about this restaurant & that we had to have a dinner there. We had a lovely dinner the last night on the island and the view is beautiful. It was one of the few restaurants we visited that was packed with clientele which made the service a little slower but for a good reason! The food was wonderful and probably the best value we found on the island. The staff and everyone works so well together. Make sure you visit this restaurant at the beginning of your trip because you will want to go back!

    We have eaten here many times and the food and service and view are excellent. I would recommend getting there around 6PM so you can have some daylight viewing time and ask for a railing table along the edge of the dining area. Be advised there are some steep stairways so if there are mobility issues that might be a problem. This is a hotel as well so you could stay here on either side of other accommodations and there is a pool. One of the nicest, if not nicest, views in all of St Thomas. Highly recommend!

    What a treat to find Mafolie is still offering an amazing meal with exceptional service. We were celebrating my husband's 89th birthday and it could not have been a better evening to recognize the day. The staff sang a special island birthday song (not the typical one from the mainland), and the slice of cake had not only a candle, but the presentation on a specially decorated plate made his day! The kindness shown by the staff was outstanding. The food was delicious! We visited Mofolie 42 years ago on our honeymoon, and several times after, but not for about 20 years. Although we understand ownership has changed over the years, the exemplary service and culinary talents have not changed. Thank you. My ONLY complaint is the steep stairs that must be navigated to reach the dining room. It was very concerning and challenging for seniors such as we are, but we made it. A higher hand rail would help.
