Aqua Bistro was one of our favorite experiences while eating out on St. John. It was a bit crowded, but they worked us in right away, and we are so thankful they did! We went on tuna night, and it was beyond delicious. My husband also had one of the seafood specials, and his meal was even better than mine,... More

I really liked the atmosphere here. The bar area was happening even when we past by after most of cruz bay had closed down. If you are staying in Coral bay then you should certainly stop. They offer a variety of fresh fish and you can choose 1 of 4 ways. I had Asian style (I forget what they called... More

My wife and I wanted to find a nice place to have dinner with fancier seafood than the average fried food spots. The chef is amazing! The blackened scallops in particular were perfect.

Stopped for an early dinner with my wife on our honeymoon. Had appetizers (grouper fingers and mussels) and shared an entree. The food portions are quite large including appetizers. Service at the bar was friendly and fast. Really enjoyed the view overlooking the harbor in Coral Bay. Very laid back, relaxed place with very good food and drinks. Prices were... More

I cannot rave as much as I need to about this restaurant. I am so sorry that we found this little gem on the last night of our vacation. They were exceptionally busy but still managed to find us a table after only a few minutes wait. I am so glad they did. The restaurant is located in quiet coral... More

We ate here twice during our recent visit to St. John. The outdoor setting of this restaurant was stunning, with great views of Coral Bay. The first night we were there we shared a delicious Caesar Salad and the Seafood Pasta. The Seafood Pasta consisted of huge shrimp and the most delicious scallops I have ever tasted. I believe there... More

So i'll start out by saying that Aqua Bistro has always been one of my higher recomendations to people when in the Coral Bay area. That said...it still will be but as often as we've visited here this was the second time we received one of our fish dishes that the fish wasn't thoroughly cooked (raw inside). It's something that...

If you want a gourmet meal at reasonable prices, this is it. Jeff the bartender was very hospitable and told us about their favorite weekly special Ponzu Tuna (usually served on Fridays, but Thursday this week on accountof carnival and the 4th). Although not partcularly on the menu, I ordered a grouper picatta with the mushroom risotto and vegetable side.... More
