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 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.

We stayed at Crown Beach Resort and this is their restaurant, the food and service is good but it is lacking atmosphere. Prices are mid range.

We also attended most of the themed nights including Island night which we really enjoyed . The roast buffet on Sunday nights is good value also . Great location so close... More

We went to Oceans for island night. Forwent the dinner for just the show option for $15. It was brilliant. The cocktail of the day was big and cold and a reasonable price, the staff were much improved from our last visit and the service was inviting. Very nice.

We called in for Happy Hour and ended up staying for dinner which we wre very pleased about as it was the Island cultural show night. The buffet meal was delicious with great variety. The service was good and the staff attentive and friendly...they even moved us closer to the stage after dinner so we could see the show better,... More

We only popped in here because we were out on the scooter & it started to rain. There is no sign for the restaurant & the Windjammer by the entrance was closed. We only decided to walk further into the resort as our daughter had stayed here on her honeymoon so we were interested to see what it was like... More
