The bar at Aqua Bistro is fantastic and full of locals. The bar is located across the street from Coral Bay with seating for the restaurant scattered in the open air plaza behind. Spend a few hours at the bar if you can, chatting with the locals, taking in the sea breeze. The food is okay. Try the grouper sandwich... More

Good food, decent service. Comfortable but busy ambiance. The outdoor bar out front is popular with locals and tourists. Will go again.

"Aqua Bistro" has surprising delicious food considering the fact that so many products have to be shipped in from St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and the States. That being said, like most things on St. John it is a little expensive, but worth it and they do try and use local fish and products as much as possible. Most everything we... More

This is a great place for lunch and the food is wonderful. The restaurant has a great view of a small bay with lots of sailboats. It is beautiful. I enjoyed eating at the bar and the service was very good. TIP: I highly recommend the jerk chicken sandwich. It was delicious!

Stopped here for lunch on a day trip. Grouper appetizer was delicious and conch fritters were ok. The spicy fried mahi sandwich was delicious. Side salad was so so. Other sandwiches had by the group were also said to be good like the grouper sandwich. Service was slow and inattentive. Fun looking bar for drinks with water views.

Four of us had dinner at Aqua Bistro. There was no wait when we arrived, the waitstaff was friendly, and food and drinks came pretty fast! We all got chicken or fish sandwiches and really enjoyed them!

We ate here the last night of our week on St. John. The first night we tried to go here it was reserved for a private party. Our party of 8 was seated right away (we were a little later than the dinner crowd), teens at one table, adults at another. Even though we were under umbrellas, when it started... More

We ate here for dinner last night and I can't stop thinking about the awesome tuna dish. It was perfectly lightly seared tuna, sushi grade, on noodles with seafood salad with a perfect sauce. We also had fresh fish, mahi, wahoo, and swordfish. All of it was beautiful to look at and mouth watering delicious. The drinks were also nice... More

10 of use dined here. Loved the atmosphere, from the bar, to the live acoustic music, to the surrounding shops, to the actual dining. Everyone enjoyed their meals. My husband and I started with the conch fritters and the wedge salad, both very good. I had the rib eye special, perfectly done and my husband had the cajun mahi. we... More
