We've been to Coral Bay several times. the Bistro was, and still is, our favorite. But, it's menu is ho hum, and, for the price, not worth it. This was off season, so some pull back is expected. Though still busy, and unless your a bar person, make a reservation. Expect to pay at least $25 to $30 per entre.... More

We came here many time for drinks but only stayed for dinner once. Service was a little slow but the view and atmosphere was fantastic so we didn't mind waiting. We all got a similar dish (italian but the name escapes me at the moment). We all agreed that the food was one of the best meals we had during... More

Very cool spot. Grabbed some drinks at the bar with my parents and the crowd seemed to be a great balance of locals and tourists looking to relax. Beautiful view of Coral Bay.

We met some friends at Aqua Bistro for supper, and all six enjoyed the meal. The variety was very good. Everyone ordered something different. The specials change from day to day. In fact, they changed while we were there. The drinks from the bar were also good. Parking is always a problem due to the small lot and popularity if... More

This is our favorite bar and restaurant on the island. It is casual with a pleasant mix of tourists and locals. They have a substantial and diverse menu both for lunch and dinner with live music some evenings. The service was always prompt and friendly. We probably ate there 8 times (lunch and dinner) during our two week visit and... More

Aqua Bistro provides a wonderful dining and drinking experience. The service is great, the people are nice, and the breeze off the ocean is memorable. Their Mahi sandwich is the best on the island. By all means order one if you happen to eat at Aqua Bistro.

Aqua Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants on St. John. They have a huge menu, ranging from appetizers to sandwiches to fancier seafood dishes. They have amazing clam chowder (just be ready to share the enormous portion) and an impressive drink menu as well. In addition, they are just steps away from Coral Bay, which adds an element of...

While visiting St. John recently, we had dinner at AB twice (both on Friday night) for the ponzu tuna, which is fantastic. Drinks were also great, service is really attentive, and ambiance makes it one of our favorite places on the island. We've also been on other nights in the past, and all the food we've had has been fantastic.

Had dinner there on Friday night for their Ponzu Tuna night. The tuna was amazing, it was seasoned and cooked just right and the portion was huge. Loved the atmosphere - the music was terrific, was a great little hidden spot where we sat but we could watch the patrons coming in and out with a view of the live... More
