As you know, the hurricanes ravaged our US Virgin islands. St John has made an amazing comeback . Aqua Bistro just reopened while we were there visiting. The food was very good and the service was great. They are still working out a few kinks....More

We ate there 3 times in August. The ponzu tuna was expensive (as all their meals are) but was very good. The other fish dishes were just alright and a bit bland. The bar is nice with good drinks and service was very good.

Outdoor restaurant next to Dolphin Market. Bar was pretty good for service but as with most places, food service slow. Not much variety and food was ok, just not unforgettable. Grouper sandwiches, fettuccine, average conch fritters. Not the best I had on St John. If...More

Hi Jan, I really don't know anything about the Lobster served on Monday. My husband & I go for the blackened Mahi Mahi served every day. We haven't had a bad meal one at this place so I feel it would be good. Have fun!

I think they would work with you on dietary needs... try to go when they are not as busy... or, stop by when you're on a grocery run to Dolphin and take a look at their menu.

Aqua bistro has been open when we have been there in early and mid November. Some restaurants in the area are closed until later in the season but we have always had enough choices.
