We walked down the hill to Coccola from our rental house and saw the sign for Aqua Bistro. There is an outdoor bar out in front of Lily's store where their sign is; we were looking for a quiet wind-down dinner after our travel day and passed it up once because the folks at the bar were loud and partying. After looking at the other possibilities we decided to walk in on chance and found the little open dining area in a garden setting behind the bar and a small kitchen in the back. We were seated and began to get that relaxed island feeling. A couple of drinks, then ordered the fresh catch swordfish jerked with mango salsa and mushroom risotto; wife had chicken pita with fresh salad instead of fries. Kudos to the staff and the chef for excellent attentive care and cuisine. The salad was fresh and crisp as was the grilled chicken in the pita but the swordfish was perfectly cooked with the mango in the salsa balancing the jerk spice. Topped off with a slice of Lime-in-the-Coconut cheesecake and coffee, life was good. Spoke to the chef with compliments on the way out. Prices aren't cheap and I'm not wealthy but do yourself a favor and don't miss if you come to St. John - you get your money's worth. I'll be back again before we leave!
