Fiesta,the Filipino buffet across from Havensight is starting evening hours. My wife and I attended the grand opening last week and the food was GREAT. They plan live music Thur-Sun and Tomorrow, Thur the 10th, I Jammin Jerry Z, will play jazz standards and tropical instrumental music from 7-9. Perhaps some of you would like to explore this wonderful cuisine or just stop by for a beer and meet me and my wife Mel who is a well known bead artist.

I know zero about Philippines food. What's a good thing to order? Do they explanations of what the different items are? I go by there twice a day.

It will be a buffet so you can try a lot of different stuff. Kind of reminded me of Vietnamese or Chinese food; sometimes quite spicy. Most stuff had descriptions posted. There is not much for vegetarians though, even the rice had meat bits in it. I like exploring different foods. St Thomas has been great in that respect, much more variety and rootsy food than in my former life in Connecticut.

I lived in the Phillipines for a summer. I had pancit (noodles with vegitables mixed it) every day for lunch for $.49 at a roadside stand, and it was DELICIOUS!!!! I can't wait to see if the food here is as good. Thanks for letting us know!

Not to sound like a pig, but I'm excited to hear about an actual buffet. I will definitely give this place a shot sometime.

I missed the part when I responded the first time that it was a buffet. If you don't know the food, that's a good way to be introduced.

I grew up in the Philippines but will be living in STT soon; hopefully mid-summer. We've been to the other Filipino restaurant (in front of Wendy's I think) during our PMV, it was ok; a bit salty to my taste, which is typical for some Filipino dish anyway. I hope Fiesta is better.

To respond to this post, for people who never tried Filipino cuisine, just go there with an open mind. Philippines is a small country but it's made up of 7,000+ islands and islets, most islets are inhabitable though. Anyway, my point is, depending on where you live in the Philippines, people have different way of cooking food. So, if there are food that you don't like, don't feel bad; some Filipinos may not like it too. I'm from Southern Philippines and there are food from Northern Philippines that I haven't tried. Filipino cuisine have some other Asian countries influence e.g. noodles (from China), soup & some spice (Indonesia, Thailand & india).

BTW, rice is a staple food in the Philippines. So, definitely, you will see it in a Filipino restaurant, similar to what you see in a Chinese buffet.

I can't wait....
