Good Food. Good Drinks. Good People. Great Views.

Once you've snorkeled your way around the island and find yourself ready for a break, Aqua Bistro is the place to go. While we truly miss Kenny's sense of humor and presence, management has somehow been able to keep the bar properly staffed in his absence. The drinks and food remains top shelf.

I guess i was expecting something more based on the reviews. Nice enough atmosphere, outdoors, across from the water, but the dinner was disappointing. For the price the portions were small, sides were a weak afterthought. The 'fresh' fish was overpowered by the sauces and rubs so it was hard to taste the fish. There were 8 of us and... More

First, let me say that the bar is a whole different experience than the restaurant. Great service at the bar. We went to the bar for drinks and decided to come back another night for dinner. We should have stuck to the bar. Our waitress was slow, rude, and did not seem to know the menu. She seemed inconvenienced when... More

We wound up in Coral Bay on a cloudy day and stopped by for lunch. I can't put my finger on it, but of course the menu is typical...nothing earth shattering offer wise or price wise. The waitress seemed like she would rather be anywhere else....we like someone with some personality...she was just drudging through the day.....sort of took away... More

We visited this restaurant twice while visiting Cruz Bay. It was worth the drive over to Coral Bay to have lunch here. We had the crunchy grouper sandwich and it was delicious and more than enough for us to share. Service was nice and quick. Location is on the water but view unless you sit up front by the bar...

i went there with my family on a Monday night. The food was ok , portions were on the smaller side. There were other things we didn't like. We had the table by the grocery store, the profanity from the bar patrons, and low tide smell is not as charming as it smells. I know the last things are nitpicking... More

I love this place! Rented a villa in Coral Bay right down the road from Aqua Bistro for a week. After long days in the sun this became our local watering hole. It's right on the water with a great views of Coral Bay and a perfect breeze. There always seemed to be live music too. We ate diner here... More

This restaurant is beautiful, tropical and romantic! We loved the selection of food and the atmosphere! I had a tomato based soup with crab in it as an appetizer and we also had the swordfish. WONDERFUL!! Service was great too!

Got to our villa in Coral Bay after 7pm and were waiting for it to cool off since it had not been opened and went to the foot of our hill to Aqua Bistro. The outdoor seating among trees and foliage was beautiful and there was a full moon. June 3. The singer and sax player that night were incredible.... More
