The menu is primarily appetizers/bar snacks, with a limited number of dinner entrees. Unfortunately, we went for dinner and were disappointed in our food. It was OK, but far from the best in Coral Bay. Atmosphere is lively and service was fine. This is a...More

Grouper was excellent, steak was good. Service very good, but they seemed rushed to turn the tables. The hostess was running around like her pants were on fire.

We had the conch fritters - very good! A well-made painkiller! Then a grouper sandwich. Great lunch experience just off the water of Coral Bay. Enjoyed hearing the bartender’s Grateful Dead playlist as well!

Seven of us showed up without reservations but they were able to move some tables around to accommodate us. All the meals we had were excellent but the service was somewhat slow. We have a new favorite restaurant on St. John.

The food was so good at Aqua Bistro that we went twice during our week stay in Coral Bay. The Caesar salad was amazing! We all had different entrees and everyone enjoyed the food. Be sure to order the Bushwaker drink for dessert!

Hi Jan, I really don't know anything about the Lobster served on Monday. My husband & I go for the blackened Mahi Mahi served every day. We haven't had a bad meal one at this place so I feel it would be good. Have fun!

Aqua Bistro is located on the “quiet side” of the island in Coral Bay. The atmosphere is casual – making it the perfect spot to kick back, relax and enjoy a wonderful meal under the umbrellas of the tropical outdoor courtyard. Our menu has something for everyone. Offering local flavor, classic burgers, fish tacos, pasta, seafood, salads and daily specials. Kids menu, vegetarian and gluten free options are available. Enjoy an appetizer and a cool island-style libation or frozen drink surrounded by both tourists and locals, beneath the seaside outdoor bar. Our bar seating offers full lunch and dinner service. Live music most nights.
