We ate here probably 5 times over our 2 weeks on St. John! The place has great food, a decent view (the bar kind of blocks the water view), and friendly (sometimes a bit slow) service. There isn't a dish we tried that I wouldn't recommend, but the best were the jerk chicken sandwich and the hot sauce (the called... More

Ate here on their busy night but they still got us a table. In between two buildings so no view but they do their best to create some ambiance. We had the ponzu tuna (their famous Friday night special) and mahi mahi ponzu style.The sauce has a very strong flavor - wouldn't get the mahi with it again for sure.... More

When you are out in Coral Bay, you can't go wrong with a stop at Aqua Bistro.... Great drinks, excellent food, normal island fare at a reasonable price...

Lunch, cocktails at the bar and wonderful fresh seafood in the evenings. Four visits during our stay and food and service was great.

I love Aqua Bistro! I love the vibe and the food. We have eaten here on every trip and finally got there on Ponzu Tuna night. We ate here 4 times this trip. Our first and last evenings, lunch one day for the Grouper sandwich, and Ponzu Tuna night. The tuna is delicious, but my favorite is the Bistro Grouper.... More

Local hangout. Nice folks. Grocery store nearby as well as local craft stores. Parking is a challenge!

One of our "must do's" each trip to St. John. A cold beer (or three) in the shade with pile of hot and tasty, artery-clogging (but, hey, something's gonna do you in) onion rings. What could be better? Josh (the daytime bartender) mixes a first rate Painkiller that's not to be missed. And when you're done, you can get ice... More

This was a cute restaurant in Coral bay. We stayed nearby and tried many places within our week stay. We loved the musician and overall ambiance. Our food and drinks were good. Our server did a great job at staying on top of drinks, food and the check. She was attentive and sweet. The server mentioned the catch of the... More

Fairly good size menu, we ate and then moved to the bar for drinks. It seemed like there were quite a few locals. Overall very good experience.
