We ate at Aqua Bistro our first night in Coral Bay on St. John. It was raining but we were seated in a dry spot quickly. Food and service was fast and fresh. The mushroom risotto that accompanies most entrees, was tasty, warm and filling.

The East End has far less options than Cruz Bay but I'm glad it has Aqua Bistro! Great open air setting overlooking Coral Bay. Good food and appropriate portions. I recommend the Mahi in all its forms. The bar is fun to chat with locals and travelers and see the comings and goings of the bay. When staying on the... More

We decided to stop for lunch at Aqua Bistro when we were out exploring Coral Bay. We had Pain Killers and a Little Iguana which were very good. The fresh fish sandwich and fish and chips were very good. We would definitely go back again!

We look forward to dining at Aqua Bistro. When we visit St. John we stay on the east End, this limits our choices of restaurants. Fortunately fro us, Aqua Bistro is located in Coral Bay. Although the bill can become somewhat steep at times (drinks may be in the area of $10 each) the food easily makes up the difference.... More

I had the fresh catch special which was grilled Mahi Mahi with a mango chutney. It was absolutely delicious, very fresh and a perfect blend of flavors. Our service was very good and the atmosphere in the outside courtyard was pleasant. We will definitely go back.

My husband and I were traveling with friends. We had been to Coral Bay (Skinny Legs, Island Blue) a few times and honestly, I never thought it was worth the cab ride or bus ride from Cruz Bay. To this day I don't understand what people see in Skinny Legs. Anyway, our friends had never been to Coral Bay and... More

We love sitting at the outdoor bar. It's a very friendly atmosphere. The food is very good. Don't miss the ponzu tuna on Fridays. It's a local event. They run out of tuna every Friday. Aqua Bistro is a great place to unwind with great food in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere.

I knew I was hooked when they put a pitcher of iced tea on the table! The food was delicious and the wait staff were friendly and informative. I love this place!

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
