It was over twenty years ago we enjoyed our first meal from La Tapa’s owner and executive chef, Alexandra Ewald, when we where fortunate to have her cater our wedding. The food and service was fabulous despite it being her very first attempt at catering. Years later Alex opened La Tapa in down town Cruz Bay, St. John.
La Tapa describes their food as contemporary mediterranean with its own personal interpretation. Over the years we visited La tapa often and always came away extremely satisfied. On our recent trip the menu included a special Ceviche dish that was absolutely fabulous. Others in our group enjoyed additional specials including the lamb chops and wiener schnitzel. The schnitzel was tender and crispy and served with a delightful side of manchego mash potatoes and the chops where done to perfection. If you are looking for a fine dining experience while on St. John, La Tapa is worth a stop.
