Dining & Nightlife in St. Croix

About St Croix's Restaurants and Food... Succulent clawless
Caribbean lobster, with a tail rich in pure white meat. Fresh caught
mahi mahi (which is a fish locally called Dolphin, but is not the
porpoise!), served island style with pungent local spices. Today's
catch of yellowfin tuna, broiled, baked, or perhaps with the chef's
special Caribbean herb and spice mixture. Conch chowder for
starters, key lime pie and Cruzan coffee for closers. And of course,
aged Black Angus steaks for those who can travel but cannot go
without! Dining on St. Croix is a magical whirl of gourmet chefs,
local delicacies, open air seaside restaurants, moonlit nights, and
no jackets required.
Paradise found! Although you can't eat atmosphere, you can drink it
in! Some of the island's nicest restaurants are in historic
courtyards, overlooking marinas, on the beach, in the finest
resorts, and tucked away in places that say "call for directions."
From beach bars to those establishments featured on national
television, every meal is a highlight of your vacation. For local
delights, stop at the food vans selling Roti, sort of a West Indian
burrito, and Salt fish Pate, deep fried and great with a cold beer!
Be sure to sample the West Indian Pig Roasts and buffets offered at
the resorts! Major credit cards are accepted, and reservations are
preferred. A word to the wise: ties and jackets are definitely not
in fashion for the gentlemen; ladies, it's either casual or casual
Did you know... Each April, St Croix
restaurateurs host one of the most unique and
exciting entertainment and culinary events in all of
the Caribbean. The event, "A
Taste of St Croix", came about as a way
to showcase the diverse and wonderful eateries of
this spectacular island. For such a small place, St
Croix boasts some of the region's finest culinary
talent. With over 40 chefs competing for top honors
in seven food categories, the event is a
gastronomical blast. Click Here for our Taste Of St.
About St Croix's Nightlife... St. Croix's first Casino, at the
Divi Carina Bay Resort on the island's southeast shore,
features a stunning new gaming casino, with slots, video gambling,
craps and blackjack tables. Entertainment abounds, starting in the
afternoon and sunset hours and continuing into the night with West
Indian buffets, mocko jumbie island dancers on stilts, and music
from the best local entertainers.
There are hot spots in the towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted,
with reggae bands, jazz groups, and popular folk singers. Depending
on the timing of your visit, full moon parties at various clubs rock
till the wee hours.
For the really adventurous person, looking for unusual night life,
there are dives hosted by the local scuba centers -- there's some
wild stuff that goes on below sea level at night; and during nesting
and hatching seasons, late night turtle watches sponsored by the St.
Croix Environmental Association!
