Tried most items on the breakfast menu and loved it all. The omelet is the best we have had. Went to the happy hour everyday and sat in... More

The food is fantastic and leaving you wanting to return again for more, the menu is great and nothing on it you wouldn't want to try. The staff were lovely and the whole place has a great atmosphere and a very professional feel about the place. Will definately be returning on our next holiday.

We visited for dinner and were sadto discover that Oceans no longer has the Westbrook Chardonnay that we enjoyed on our previous visit there last year (it is still printed on the sticky menus however). We ordered a bottle of something else that was a very average bottle of wine and enjoyed some Garlic Bread while we waited for the... More

We stopped in for lunch. Unfortunately the food was a little lacking on the creativity side of things BUT the cocktails were outstanding. Great place to just sit, hang out and drink. If drinking is your thing...then I highly recommend this place

Not much choice for breakfast and the chef's cooking needs improvement. It's not that flash which we noticed with their menu. So much of the food is imported.
