“Great food, even better view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

My husband and I were staying on St. Thomas and took a boat over for dinner at Waterfront Bistro. We originally had reservations elsewhere, but switched on a recommendation from our boat captain. It was the right move. Excellent food and the view of the bay is the best we had while in the islands. We couldn't have asked for a better way to spend our last evening in USVI.

“Nice waterfront dining in St. John”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Good setting with great views of St. Thomas. Food was good but prices were a bit steep. The homemade caramel almond ice cream was a delicious end to the meal.

“Best meal in the islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Must do. Incredible view, incredible service and incredible food. They went way out of their way to make you feel welcome. Burger was best I have ever had, very upscale. Fish burrito special was excellent. Great wine selection, excellent mojito. You will love it. Will always be my #1 pick when ever I return.

“Great view, great drinks and over priced food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you want a nice high end restaurant on the island, this is a good place to go. The menu isn't overly exciting. However, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Great view of Cruz Bay at sunset.

“Best meal of the week!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The Bistro was a pleasant surprise! It was suggested by the concierge at the Westin and ended as the best meal we've had thus far! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The filet was perfectly cooked and melted in your mouth. The potatoes accompanying it were crispy and seasoned just right! We finished the meal with bread pudding that came out hot and fulfilled my need for something sweet! Highly recommend this restaurant!
