Many would agree that St. Thomas and St. John offer the finest dining choices in the Caribbean. Both islands are home to many, small, unique, wonderful restaurants. Because of this, a very popular evening event for a group is an organized “dine around”. The group is divided up and each smaller group heads off to experience one of the many wonderful restaurants we have on St. Thomas and St. John. We recommend only the finest restaurants and organize the entire evening. We work very closely with each of the restaurants in the planning process. In each case they have provided us with their pre-selected menus that we can share with you.
