Restaurants on St John

Here is a partial list of the restaurants on St. John that are certainly worth trying. Most of them are located in or near Cruz Bay, but a growing number of them can be found in the Coral Bay area and beyond.


For each of these, we will indicate whether they are inexpensive (by St. John standards), moderately priced, or expensive by using the notation $, $$, and $$$, respectively. We will also indicate whether it would be more appropriate for a party of four to take a taxi to a particular restaurant or whether that restaurant should be reserved for those days in which you have a rental car available. For these notes, we will use the notation TAXI or RENTAL CAR.
