Havana Blue is one of my favorite restaurants on St. Thomas, so it was an obvious choice for a special dinner to celebrate my mother-in-law’s 75th birthday a few weeks ago.

The party turned out to be flawless!  The food was great, the wine flowed (thanks Mike), the company was top notch and the service was phenomenal.

The restaurant has all of the elements of a fabulous dining experience.  The atmosphere is airy, modern, beachy and chic.  I recommend a sunset seating to take advantage of the gorgeous view.

The food was delicious, as usual. I’ve dined here several times, and each time I’ve been delighted with the food quality and taste.

Everyone in our large party (which included both NY and Bay Area foodies) raved about the food.  Our normally loud family suddenly got very quiet when the entrees arrived (always a good indicator).

As an appetizer, I love the Latin Dipping Trio, which consists of hummus, salsa and guacamole.  And for an entree, I had the Coco Mojo Camarones, which had an excellent flavor.  And make sure to try their fantastic mojitos (a signature drink).

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the excellent service.  The service at Havana Blue is every bit as good as the food.

Prior to the dinner, we worked with Havana Blue to design a cake for the event. It was absolutely amazing! Not only was the design perfect, but the key lime mascarpone filling (sounds strange, but give it a try) was exquisite.

The entire evening was perfectly executed.  To the staff at Havana Blue, thank you for making our night memorable!
