This buzzy local favorite is ensconced in the restored West Indian great house of an estate known as Villa Olga, which served as the island’s Russian embassy in the late 1800s. It’s right on the water’s edge, with sweeping views of the Charlotte Amalie harbor. Inside the walls are blanketed with colorful local and global art. The chefs specialize in creative twists on the island bounty, so you’ll have seared scallops served with a papaya-pear relish and local honey gastrique, or Maryland crab cakes with a fresh mango salsa. The Oceana bouillabaisse comes brimming with Caribbean lobster, and a New Zealand lamb shank is accompanied by goat-cheese polenta. It’s all beautifully prepared, in a memorable setting.
