We ate lunch here twice during our stay. The first day my husband had a grilled Mahi sandwich. And I had the grilled fish tacos. I really liked the tacos. The type of fish escapes me now, but I don't think it was tuna. The second day, my husband stuck with the Mahi again and I had the Black and... More

I could not be happier with Waterfront Bistro. We had our wedding reception here and it was just fantastic. I think Waterfront Bistro may have been the only restaurant I had not been to in St John and I was honestly slightly nervous because of that. The food was incredible and the service was fantastic. Every single member of the... More

We live in St John and eat lunch here quite often. When we first moved here, we were like tourists: We did not know anyone. These people made us feel at home, served us great lunches and even gave us ice chips for our dog! I never ate a bad meal here, and never got service without a smile. If... More

Water Front Bistro is located on the waterfront in Cruz Bay which provides a great sunset view while enjoying dinner. We ordered the pork shank and Mahi Mahi and both were very good. The appetizer and desert was very good. Want a great location for dinner, try the Water Front Bistro at the Marketplace in Cruz Bay!

The food was average except for the fresh cut fries that came with my husband's burger. They were excellent. The sevice on the other hand would get 1 star. The bartender spent the entire time sitting and gossiping with a man who had a boat in the harbor. We were two of four people in the entire restaurant. She came... More

5 of us had dinner. Very helpful waitstaff. Food was all good. We had multiple appetizers to share and a variety of entrees. I would go again for the view first. So many great places to eat in town...food faces a bit more competition.

I dined here with a group of 9. The Waterfront Bistro offered first class service with a smile to our table - a rarity when dining with a large group. The food was absolutely amazing - every person in our group was very pleased. We enjoyed the evening view of the harbor. I can't wait to go back!
