“Nice romantic restaurant”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Compared to all the bar restaurants in Coral Bay, this restaurant is a welcome site. Nice candlelight dining. Great menu. Portions generous. My husband loved the mussels! They have a fun happy hour at the outdoor bar up front as well. Nice place!

“Wonderful Fresh Fish prepared 4 different Ways. Lovely Atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

One of our favorites! We dined here 3 times and it was delicious every time! Had Mahi, Red Snapper and Grouper. They have 4 Ways to prepare your fish and blackened was my favorite. Unlike many places around the islands, the servers promptly refill your drinks. :)

“Best restaurant in Coral Bay”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We went there twice during our trip in Coral Bay and this is the best restaurant. Staff are friendly and food is really good. They always have different king of fish and they all taste really good. Try the blackened fish... It's the best. Jercked is really good too. As desert, we had home chocolate cake... Hot and spicy hummmmm! Can't wait to go back! Special thanks to Sharon the manager of this restaurant.

“Best meal - try the jerk seasoning”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Aqua Bistro served the best food, it is the only restaurant that we visited twice! They have four options for preparing fresh fish, I liked the jerk seasoning so much I had it twice, once on Snapper (fabulous) and once on Mahi Mahi (also wonderful). They were very buzy the first night, and forgot the mango salsa - which turned out to be a blessing - I suggest you order the mango salsa on the side. Lovely outdoor seating. I will return on my next visit to St. John.

“MJ the best chef on St. John”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

There are many excellent reasons for dining at Aqua Bistro. MJ is the best chef on St. John, and if you notify him a day or two in advance, he will prepare almost any meal you request. His rack of lamb is superb. I special ordered it for a dinner party this winter. He met us at the bar as we came in to inform us that it had been cooked with love. The nut encrusted mahi-mahi is great, as is his blackened swordfish. If you just want to sit at the bar, look over the water and have an entertaining afternoon with Kenny the Bartender, be sure you get there Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, and not in March as Kenny is always Stateside that month
