Good food at good prices, we were visiting St Croix and bought the rotisserie chicken, rice and gandules and Johnny cakes. Everything was tasty and the Johnny cakes were a hit with the whole group. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

This place is unique. We ordered the chicken and ribs combo dinner and it was really good. My hubby liked the chicken over the ribs. The have specials on certain days and a local older gentleman told us the homemade pasta dishes are awesome.

We love La Reines. This is a must go for a local gem. I got the ribs. Good, but not as good as the chicken. When on St. Croix you have to go here at least once.

Some of the best food on the island. I had the ribs, my husband the 1/2 chicken. Both came with rice and a salad. We sampled each others and I must say both were very, very good. The servings were large, we could have made...More
