We stopped here for lunch whilst driving around St John. The menu is excellent and has plenty of choice. The bar is circular and near to the bay, which is nice. We sat at a table in the courtyard with small quaint boutique shops situated around us, just out of site. The food was top notch, for a local lunch... More

We loved this restaurant. Ate three times in the 7 nights we were in St. John. The fresh fish of the day was a winner each time. The mahi mahi with piccata sauce was fantastic and one of us ordered it each time. We also liked the swordfish with jerk seasoning and mango salsa although it was a bit spicy... More

We are not a couple that eats at the same place multiple times on a vacation. We like to try as many different places as we can, but each meal brought us back for the next! We ate here 3 nights and had we gone there sooner in the vacation we probably would've been there every night. We met so... More

I had a very different experience from most of the visitors here and it was nothing to write home about. My fiance and I stopped by around 7:30pm one night. We listened to the rave reviews on this site.and from several locals who had given us their favorite dishes. We had the grouper sandwich and a burger. The daiquiri was... More

This was a great place for lunch out of the lines of the normal tourists. There was a big list of fresh fish available, and the menu was really interesting for that reason. I would love to come back for dinner. The fish was really fresh and had great flavor. It was a nice little place to sit and relax.... More

We were in St. John for a week and visited Aqua Bistro probably five times total. We ate a few times, we loved the Grouper, and came for drinks many times. We felt very welcome and got to talk to a lot of the locals. We met the chef who shared his passion for the food he cooked and it... More

We have been to St. John numerous times but for some reason we have never been to Aqua Bistro so we were determined to make it there for dinner on our 10 day stay on St. John in August. We were greeted by a friendly waitress who seated us at one of the tables in the back under an umbrella.... More

I'm from the Midwest and hence don't eat a chance to eat fresh seafood. Even when I was in Key West, things seemed limited to shrimp this and that. I asked my waitress to pick my fish since I didn't know one from the other and she said that having it cooked blackened was the most popular. It was the... More

Coral Bay is a lot quieter than Cruz Bay, but this is a good spot to stop for lunch because there are some little shops to browse while you wait for your food. There are chickens running around, so that's fun to watch. I loved the little shop here that had local goods - so much better than buying plastic... More
