I'm a local so I know where to go. Only open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, I'm there on one of those days every week. Open air, filled with locals and visitors there for Angie's good cooking and JT's charming hospitality.

Warmly greeted by the owner and welcomed to Villa Morales. Definitely a local place as everyone seemed to know everyone but was made to feel at home right away. The roast pork is excellent and the scallops were to die for. And the entrees were only $12-14. Definitely a place to stop by during a visit to the West End.

I have never had a bad meal at Villa Morales. With out a doubt the best Fried Chicken available. If the season is right, do not miss the Bread Fruit Tostones. They are something special.

JT, the owner, is a gracious host. His wife cooks in the kitchen. We had curry chicken, fish, beans and rice and tostones and... More

I ordered plantains, johnny cake, salt fish, and jumbo shrimp. The added bonus: bathrooms were nice and clean. My friend is from St. Croix. His family made... More

Villa Morales is a staple west-end restaurant run by Angie and JT and has featured consistent authentic Puerto-Crucian food for many years. We love going with small and large groups and truly appreciate the family style meals where we each pick our entree and then share the side dishes. My favorite is the whole fried fish or the conch in... More
