No restaurant can claim a better view than
Chateau Bordeaux (Bordeaux Mountain, 340/776-6611, 5:30–10 p.m. daily, $28–38). Atop Bordeaux Mountain between Cruz Bay  and Coral Bay , this cottage restaurant serves some of the most elegant cuisine on St. John . The intimate dining room with polished wood floors and white tablecloths overlooks Coral Bay. If you’re here for a full moon, don’t miss the opportunity to watch the moon rise over Coral Bay. The menu here is classy and sophisticated; try the Caribbean lobster crepe or Chilean sea bass, and don’t skimp on the excellent wine list.
