Mafolie has one of the best views above the Charlotte Amalie harbor. That said the meal was so -so as was the service. We were there the last night before they closed for much needed repairs (Roof, other) but really no excuse. The potential is there but meals need to be more inviting and service more attentive.

I did a reservation, and that part of the experience was the only great one. The person handling my reservation was great: responsive, fast, very nice. Then we arrived to the place... our table took 30 minutes after the agreed time to be ready. Every plate took for ever. Our waiter was definitely not attentive. And our food was really bad (lobster was overcooked, my jambalaya seafood rice was overdone, etc.). We asked for the dessert... then after 20 more minutes the waiter just come telling us that we will need to ask for something else because they ran out. That was the end of it. Terrible experience. And I understand that it was their last day of the season and the were read to close so they were not very focused on us. I understand it. But it was a horrible experience

After a long day of volleyball camp, we took our coaches for a treat at the Mafolie Hotel & Restaurant. It was very close to where they were staying and how could we deny them that view?!
The service was fantastic but just a bit slow, however we didn't make reservations and the place was packed. The food...was definitely worth the wait!
We shared the crabcakes and conch fritters, YUM. And their mango chutney sauce was a work of art. :-o

I hope they have the Mango Chili Chicken when you go because you absolutely HAVE to try it. Well done kitchen and waitresses! We will be back for that raspberry cheesecake, which was perfect served cold.

Oh I forgot to mention they had a nice man playing guitar which was a nice cherry on top the effortless atmosphere. ♡

Their views were stunning and the food was very good. Marriott's discount got us 10% off, but you need to bring that little blue card.

Were able to park just off the street on the left side. When you go back home, as we did in the dark, turn around just up the hill and go back the way you came. Otherwise, you might find yourself, as we did, going down a narrow, steep very rough road through a not so nice part of town. Have your copilot using google maps calling out directions and to 'stay left!'.

Had conch fritters with a delish hot relish. Can see the FEMA blue tarp for the roof but this place is beautiful . Waitress Sly very attentive.
