Fat Turtle – Restaurant Review

Fat Turtle

Fat Turtle

 I was lucky enough to be taken out to dinner at the Fat Turtle last night. This popular restaurant is located at St. Thomas’ Yacht Haven Grande Marina and Shopping Center. Lovely place right on the waterfront. We were seated at a table next to the water so we had a great breeze keeping us cool. I could gaze at Charlotte Amalie all lit up and my dinner partner was able to view the cruise ship. Great views!

Our waiter was charming and talkative. We started with the Crispy Calamari; fried calamari with mango, feta cheese and served with an Aioli Sauce. The flavors were scrumptious. I got the Crab Cake sandwich and my partner got the Shrimp Scampi. The Crab Cake was delicate and spiced to perfection although I could have done without the sandwich part of it. It was served with either french fries or Caeser Salad. After eating the fries I suggest going with the salad. The Shrimp Scampi was served with

two slices of pizza, something I have never seen done before but the flavors tasted good together.

Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing. We were offered desserts but after the generous portions we ate it was not possible. I am told that this restaurant “jumps” on Fridays when they have live music. It is defintely worth the visit.
