Fodor's Expert Review Banana Tree Grille
The eagle's-eye view of the Charlotte Amalie harbor from this breeze-cooled restaurant is as fantastic as the food. Linen tablecloths, china, and silver place settings combine with subdued lighting to make an elegant space. To start, try plump escargots in an arugula-garlic pesto sauce or crispy calamari dipped in tangy lemon aioli. The signature dish here—and worthy of its fame—is a grass-fed pasture-raised filet mignon topped with plump shrimp and served with velvety béarnaise sauce and fresh asparagus. Arrive before 6 pm to watch the cruise ships depart from the harbor while you enjoy a drink at the bar.
