      Too Funny! Most people that I greet when they come down always ask about seafood! Remember, locals love their chicken, mutton and much more! All restuarants offer the things you are used to in the states as well! Pasta dishes, steaks, chicken, ribs and more! So you seafood non-lovers....NOT to worry! LOL!

            I will cross the fungi allergic to mushrooms and the fried chicken that is what the Popeyes and Kfc are for.

            I may get some plantain today

                All 3 places are very nice places and very well known! ck out: Virgin Islands Now as Petunia mentioned and ck out the visitor forum, you will find a wealth of information! I spend a lot of time there and love it!
                I have to say that even the some of the hole in the wall places are very good as well! A lot of my guests love the little shack across from Coki Beach for West Indian food!
                Lots of wonderful choices! :)

                  Doesn't the Frenchman's Reef have an AI option? I was originally planning to go with Jamaica and just do my wedding there for 50-60 guests but now I keep hearing such bad feedback on Jamaica itself as far as a destination that it is making me a little nervous to pursue it. I wanted to do St. Marteen since I hear it is definitely beautiful but there are no normal hotels there that really impress me. Does anyone know of a garden like area overlooking the water (not in sand) to do a ceremony in the USVI? What is everyones opinion on the Frenchman's Reef or where they host your reception? I don't want to be stuck in a stuffy ballrooM!!!

                    I like the offsite venue idea like the botanical gardens...just curious if there are other places like this to do the wedding ceremony and reception..incase the hotel just doesn't work out?!
