Extremely friendly staff offered advice on a varied seafood menu. Three of us made different choices and all of us were pleased with our selection. Also recommend appetizers and desserts. The restaurant is venue for local musicians. They took a phone reservation.

Outdoor place is nice, drinks are a bit watered down. Food was average. Staff was friendly. Iguana colada drinks were great.

My husband and I had dinner twice at Aqua Bistro while visiting Coral Bay. They were the best meals we had in the area by far. The first evening, I had the Roasted Vegetable Sandwich and my husband had the Crispy Grouper Sandwich Buffalo Style. Both were flavorful and delicious. The french fries were crispy and perfectly cooked. The next... More

The atmosphere here is wonderful and the staff was amazing. First I had a ceaser salad which was delcious so I thought things were going to be great, but it didn't turn out that way. Both my friend and I ordered the Wahoo fish with pecan dusting and it came out like fish jerky. It was so tough we could... More

When on St. John, we always visit Aqua Bistro on Fridays for Tuna Ponzu night. My wife doesn't go for the tuna but always finds a great selection of other seafood -- always excellent. I would give it a 5 but the service is hit and miss, as with most places on St. John.

AB has been on island a long time and that alone gives it a star. Not an easy thing to do, This is a pleasant bar, a mix of the local gringo's and tourist, often has music, and a couple of all you can eat nights. Open all the time. A good watering hole.

Went to Aqua Bistro last year, May 2016, and the food was good but not over the top. Went April 2017, and discovered they got a new Chef, and OMG, food was over the top. The blackened fish was incredible. The wait staff rocked but the food is not to be missed. Only got to eat there once this time... More

Aqua Bistro was an easy access for us from the vacation rental we stayed at. We decided to try the 'all you can eat' lobster night. What a treat! The lobsters were large and from Anegada. You can't find a better-tasting lobster than those from Anegada. I think my husband ended up eating 9 of them!! I tried the macadamia-crusted... More

Outdoor seating under umbrellas. Nice, varied menu and delicious food. We had pappardelle bolognese, fruitti di mare and chicken picatta. Everything was delicious. Wish we knew ahead of time that Monday night was All You Can Eat Lobster!!

If you are tired of dirt yards and chickens, this is a great stop in Coral Bay. Nice bar area in front with a large dinning area toward the back. We only stopped for a short visit and a painkiller, but service and atmosphere were very pleasan
