Just Had Lunch. Quite Good

It's at a good location in Coral Bay, right next to the largest (of two) grocery stores and the lunch menu is certainly adequate. Fresh fish sandwiches were good as was (and God knows why he ordered it) our son's hamburger, The french fries were frozen (not when we ate them but by frozen I mean... read more

Got to Coral Bay early for a tour and the six of us needed some food. Found Aqua Bistro and were we glad! The food was very good. The onion rings were outstanding. They are thin and crispy and go down so easily. We also had flat bread pizza and it was awesome. Actually had to take some home as... More

We recently dined at Aqua Bistro during our trip to St. John. We arrived around 7pm to a hostess who seemed disinterested. We told her we didn't have a reservation (half the restaurant was empty), she didn't respond and simply walked us to our table, seemingly over the fact that we hadn't called ahead. Our waitress was pleasant with a... More

Went there specifically (for me) for the ahi tuna special. It was a large portion, well presented and delicious. My wife had the Mahi Mahi and thought it was just OK. Dave, the host, was awesome.

We sat at the bar, had a couple drinks, the bartenders are great! No worries there. The had some great live music as well. We ordered some onion rings to munch on while listening to the band. Unfortunately we were both heaving up our onion rings from earlier in the evening. Not sure what you can or can't do to... More

The $30 Grouper with shrimp topped with alfredo was one of the best seafood dishes I have ever had. The crunchy grouper sandwhich and the conch sandwhich are also amazing...and get their clam chowder, holy cow it was amazing and so fresh and so much! We ate here 4 times in one week and I wish we would have ate... More

Aqua Bistro was enjoyable for us - it was one of the nicer (vs. low-key) spots in Coral Bay. If you're looking for a nice dinner out in Coral Bay, this would be the spot (from what I saw). The setting was very pretty - large trees, next to the bay, nice lighting at night, live music. Our food was... More

Stopped for lunch. The food was quite good, the setting beautiful but all tarnished by the service. We sat at the bar and the bartendress was not at all engaging with one word answers, ignored our empty glasses and was frequently absent. We would go back for the food.

We went for an early dinner, it was packed from 6pm on. We got in a little past 5 and watched the sunset, ate fish and relaxed. Great service despite the crowds beginning to come in.
