Ponzu Tuna on Fridays!!!

We spent a month in Coral Bay last year and will be there for longer this Winter. One of our favorite restaurants is Aqua Bistro. And, although we have enjoyed many of their offerings, our absolute favorite is the Sesame encrusted Ponzu Tuna steak, which is available either as an appetizer or a... read more

Aqua Bistro attracts tourists for fine dining and also has lots of locals who come for the pizzas. Outdoor dining is very pleasant but don't forget to check out the dining room's great decor.

Such a great dinner option in the Coral Bay area. Our rental house was located just above Coral Bay and Aqua Bistro was a great find for us on a night when we didn't want to drive into Cruz Bay. Based on a recommendation, we went on Friday night to try their famous Ponzu Tuna. So glad we did. Two... More

This place is great. We visited in the off season when a lot of places close until Oct. Thankfully Aqua Bistro was open. It was very lively when we visited around 6pm. The bar was full and lots of laughter. We got seated fast and drinks were great. We had a few of the local cocktails for always see --... More

We stopped here on our way to Salt Pond Bay. Great sandwiches and service. Very easy to get to. Looked like a lot of good fresh catch options for dinner as well. It's steps from Coral Bay so the breeze is very nice.

Aqua Bistro can be a little pricey, but you get your moneys worth here. I would recommend sticking with an appetizer and the sandwiches. The fresh catch items looked really good, but be prepared to pay at least 35$ pp. The crunchy grouper fingers are really good!

Even in low season, people come from all over the island for the ponzu tuna. Three of the four of us got that, and we all loved it, although the portion was almost too big. Good service, relaxing atmosphere, and excellent food. We love Coral Bay!

We stopped by for refreshing drinks after walking around Coral Bay. You have a nice view of the boats in the harbor.

Aqua Bistro served some of the best food we had while staying in Coral Bay. Very fresh ahi tuna and Caesar salad. Our kids enjoyed their flatbread and chicken Parmesan. Nice outdoor dining and very friendly waitstaff.

We stayed in the Coral Bay area back in early April. My wife and I had been to a few places earlier in the week namely Sweet Plantains. We had been to the bar of this restaurant and figured we would try the restaurant. We should have eaten somewhere else or starved ourselves. The waitress was cold and really didn't... More
