Went there with family and friends to see friend Stephen perform, and because some of our group were craving their Ponzu Tuna. Love the atmosphere and we had a lovely time and the food was excellent. I was looking for something a little lighter so I had Crab and Tomato Bisque and a salad. Very tasty. Also shared some peel... More

We have been coming to St. John for years and frequently go to Aqua bistro for lunch after a morning of snorkeling. We usually have a late lunch, between 2 and 3 pm. The first visit had a bartender who was announcing that she had had a hard day and she was ready to get off early if her relief... More

Greet fried group sandwich, peel and eat shrimp, burgers, etc. Really good cocktails that are so full you can barely lift your glass. No reason to drive to Cruz Bay for dinner when... More

We ate at Aqua Bistro twice this trip. The hamburger, chicken piccata, and grouper fingers were all good. Friday night is Ponzu Tuna night and my husband loves it. Every time we are on St John, I know where we are going on Friday night.

Wonderful live music accompanied excellent cocktails on our 2nd visit to this gem. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was scrumptious! Two of our group ordered and Loved the blackened swordfish, while our friends thoroughly enjoyed their ahi tuna appetizer. The clam chowder was large and awesome, so know that it can be pretty filling. We ordered... More

We loved drinking at this unique bar which is right across the street from Coral bay. The crowd is relaxed and there is live music on some nights. The food is yummy too!The ahi tuna was incredibly fresh and flavorful. Beautiful presentation. The clam chowder was decadent as clam chowder should be. We thoroughly enjoyed the blackened swordfish but I... More

Friday night is ponzu tuna night. Best meal we had on the island. Huge stack of tuna on top of noodles and ponzu sauce.

Stopped here for lunch while exploring the island. Great Painkillers and wonderful sandwiches. We had the Conch Sandwich and the Buffalo Mahi Sandwich. You won't be disappointed!
