Morgan's Mango, St. John

St. John USVI Restaurants

Come enjoy a delicious selection of tropical drinks and cocktails as well as delicious Island food when you sit down at the bar or a table at Morgan's Mango. The place is known for its great atmosphere; the staff is friendly, the scene is bumping and the chefs really know how to serve spicy Caribbean cuisine.

The Drinks

Come on a Thursday night to take part in what I like to call the Margarita splash. On this night every week loyal patrons, both locals and visitors to the St. John, come to Morgan's Mango and scramble up the lengthy flight of stairs - well worth the climb. They then step into a paradisiacal oasis of Caribbean delight with inviting Muzak™-style background sound wafting through the restaurant lounge. Join the fun loving crowd and come sit up at the extended bar that curves around the central dining room. Browse through the impressive drink menu featuring more than 30 tropical island drinks. These colorful concoctions come in the form of luscious Margaritas with a variety of different flavors. Of the extensive selection of drinks, my personal favorite here is the piña colada. The flavor is authentic and it's measured strong - just the way I like it.

The Menu

Enjoy the spice of the Caribbean by choosing any number of seafood delights from the opulent menu here. You probably won't get this kind of spice anywhere else - even at most other restaurants on St. John. Every night you will be able to take part in selecting from a long list of fresh ocean specialties including lobster, snapper, mahi-mahi and more. For an appetizer, why not start out with the sumptuous flying fish glazed with a special sauce, then dig into the voodoo snapper prepared with a delicious Haitian recipe. Be prepared, because with this one, it's all about the Cajun spices that really tend to light up the night, especially for the uninitiated. After an ample pressing in the kitchen, the voodoo snapper is grilled to perfection and slathered in a tropical mango and variety fruit salsa that is sure to dazzle even the most developed connoisseur of Cajun delight. For the vegetarians among us, you too can still enjoy the fabulous spicy cooking of Morgan's Mango when you order the delicious plantains - skillet fried - and served on a platter with a side of black beans, salad and grilled or boiled corn on the cob. Although not a vegetarian myself, the down home style Cajun cooking that produces the vegetarian platter is a hardy feast that any island traveler can enjoy.

The Restaurant

The eatery is open air, thus letting in the warm tropical breezes that St. John is famous for. Access to the restaurant comes via a long flight of stairs. But any thirst you might develop from the climb is sure to be quenched once you reach the top. Sit down at the bar and enjoy a vast selection of frozen drinks - over 30 in total. Alternatively, take a place at one of the tables and enjoy the festive Cajun cooking brought to you by enthusiastic chefs. It's not the most exquisite restaurant, and the check reflects this at the end of the meal. However, if you are looking for the warm smiles of a truly island atmosphere, Morgan's Mango is the place to be.
