We had a couple of really good dinners at this place years ago and it is still serving high quality food. The menu is simple and they will accommodate special requests with no grief. We had lunch and two dinners there last week. Good fish, steaks and burgers prepared with enough uniqueness to be interesting, but not "over-the-top". The only... More

This was my family's first visit to the island, and we went to Aqua Bistro on a recommendation. I am so glad! This was the best dinner we had. The lime in the coconut drink was tasty too! As we finished our meal, we were already planning our return.

Saw this restaurant and had to try it. We were craving a great steak and the rib eye delivered. Great atmosphere with a view of the water/breeze, excellent service and fabulous food/drink. Caesar salad was a bonus. We didn't try it but heard good things about the calamari too! Try it, you won't be disappointed with the quality!!!

We just got back from a visit to St. John and have great memories of this place in years past when it was the Donkey Diner. Aqua Bistro has great food and drinks. Very cool and casual outdoor area. Saw someone ordering pizza for takeout, so we decided that would be an easy option for us one night. Solid pizza... More

We had the wonderful pleasure of having dinner at Aqua Bistro on Tuesday night this past week. We had a group of 8. The setting is wonderful, but the food & service were outstanding. I highly recommend you add this to your list of restaurants in SJ.

Consistently good food, good drinks, good service, and always open (a rarity in the off season in this side of the island).

The food was very good, although a bit pricey, even for St. John. The service was adequate and it was a nice, relaxing environment for our first night on the island. Very nice outdoor bar.

The outdoor bar is a shady, breezy respite from the afternoon heat to enjoy fresh seafood and local drinks (Painkiller). The prices are reasonable and the portions plentiful. Add the view of moored boats gently bobbing in the bay, along with Ponzu Tuna Friday's and you'll be fine!
