food

For those of you that believe variety is the spice of life, you can find many different kinds of cuisine on St. Croix – American fare, Caribbean, Latin and European foods and more. If you like fresh seafood, we recommend you try the locally caught spiny lobster, wahoo or mahi mahi (also called dolphin fish). If you like a little adventure with your food and spirits, try attending a farm to table dinner and plan to visit St. Croix in April during the St. Croix Food & Wine Experience, a weeklong celebration. Good food and drinks make for a great experience. Bringing you restaurant suggestions, great meals we’ve enjoyed, and island inspired recipes straight from the St. Croix food scene.
