The food is good, the service ok and the vibe is fine. But nothing to write home about. The woman tending bar has gotta be the hardest working person on the island - slugging bucket after bucket of ice. The beer is definitely cold.

My husband and I stayed in an AirBNB within walking distance to this restaurant and we ate their TWICE it was so good. It was off season when we went and it was very laid back with several locals coming in/out for food/drinks. We had conch fritters, scallops, grouper buffalo sandwich, and calamari. All were DELICIOUS! You can sit by... More

I had lunch here with four friends and, while the food was decent, can't call it great. We were greeted promptly and shown to a small table better suited for four. Then, we were told several items that were not available because they were closing for a month. The onion rings were thin, poorly battered, and dripping in oil. Salad... More

We loved our dinner at Aqua Bistro. The location right on Coral Bay is amazing and it's definitely worth it to linger at their bar before or after dinner to have a drink. You'll love your meal as well as the food was great. We had the best conch fritters of our whole trip to start the meal and then... More

Everyone seems to love Aqua Bistro so we were excited to check it out - unfortunately we didn't have a great experience there. We were there fairly early and there was hardly anyone in the restaurant, yet they still stuck us at the farthest table back, right next to the swinging doors from the kitchen - so we didn't get...

My family and I (wife and two children) came to Aqua Bistro in St John's island last week during our annual visit, and I just have to say.....WOW!!! The food was amazing. Everything we ordered was fresh, cooked perfectly, and just delicious! Pare that with exceptional service (especially for St John's) and we were just knocked off our feet! We... More

Aqua Bistro is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful food and an amazing staff! If you are lucky enough to meet the owner, Marc, then tell him War Eagle and he will buy you a free drink!

We decided to have our last dinner in St. John at Aqua Bistro. It's 30 minute or so drive from Cruz Bay and definitely worth it. We ordered the fresh diver scallops appetizer which were incredible and then got the catch of the day fish (type forgotten) for dinner. They offer a few different seasonings for the scallops and fish... More

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
