Guaranteed great food in Coral Bay

If you can, find your way to Aqua Bistro for Ponzu Tuna and live music on Friday nights. Soooooo good! Great, friendly bartenders and servers. Great view.

Came here on Thanksgiving as many restaurants were closed. Had reservations at 7 and was seated promptly. Three waitstaff that did not seem overwhelmed. Took a while for just a glass of wine and soda to arrive. Had Caesar salad which was good. Greens were fresh and a nice tasting dressing. Boyfriend ordered the grilled wahoo and I ordered the...

Came here for Thanksgiving as we were staying nearby and options were limited. When we got to the restaurant for a 7pm reservation, it was busy, but did not feel as if the three wait staff were overwhelmed. We were seated by one of the pleasant men waiting tables. Took a while for drinks (glass of wine, soda) to be... More

Had the opportunity to dine her twice while on St. John. If you can only one day...make it a Friday. One special is a mound of Ponzu Tuna (sushi style) that you just will not believe ! Members of the group also Ponzu Swordfish, Ponzu Wahoo that was delicious. Great atmosphere, live music. Service was exceptional!

We made a regular Friday night stop at Aqua Bistro during our last trip. The Ponzu Tuna is one the best things you will ever eat, if you like Sushi. I keep telling my wife that we are going to have to stat planning our trips where are there two Friday nights, so I can eat the Ponzu Tuna twice.... More

We came to the Aqua Bistro just to have a dessert. One dessert costs 10$ and definitely is not worth the money. Spending 20$ plus a tip- we left very disappointed.

Stopped by for drinks our first night on the island and came back again for dinner. Sat at the bar where we enjoyed a nice breeze off the bay. Had the grouper sandwich and the crab cakes. As usual, the food was delicious and, Paul, the bartender, came up with great suggestions.

The restuarant is sandwiched between the local market and some shops in Coral Bay. It is outside dining without a view, my reason for only giving it 4 stars. They have a regular menu but always have fresh catch specials that you can have cooked 4 different ways. My husband had the swordfish and I had the Mahi Mahi both... More
