Ocean View is a cosy restaurant right across Fort Oranje, with a terrace on the first floor overlooking the entrance of the fortress and the ocean. The dinner was good, for a reasonable price. The place is owned by a Dutch-Statian couple that runs this restaurant for almost 15 years. As far as we could see, they really tried to... More

A nice hike up the huge hill from the Gin House, across from the fort is the Ocean vie Terrace. Ok, you don't really have an ocean view (or not much of one). The food is nice, but the place is beyond slow. The locals say you should go an hour before you get hungry...2 hours might be better.

Incredible food, wonderful staff, and perfect atmosphere! Make sure you bring cash!!!! And, if you are in Statia on a Friday, stop by for local karaoke!

Walked up the hill and had lunch at Ocean View between dives one afternoon. The location is very nice, with a wonderful view out over Fort Oranje and the Caribbean. Given the high marks here on TA, I certainly had somewhat higher hopes. We tried it out for lunch just to see if it might be worth the hike back... More

Good choice of local dishes (meat or fish) in a wonderful setting (18th century monument) with a stunning view of the fort and the Caribbean sea. Service was good and the prices really friendly!! Everyone in our party (6) ordered something different and yet it all arrived at the same time. And it tasted good too. Overall a very nice... More

We loved the island cooking and went back time and again to Ocean View. It sits in historic Oranjestaad, just across from the old fort, with all the ambiance you could ask for. The owner and his wife serve and cook all the food, and are so congenial. We would go back again in a minute.

Walked in without reservations and unfortunately there were already two large parties of 10 or more seated. The food was good but the service was very slow. I think it would be different if there were not so many people. It has a small kitchen. But good food.

Our experience there was not positive. We were there on a Sunday night. It was not real crowded although became more busy as the night went along. When we arrived there were probably six empty tables. By the time we received our food, all of those tables had been filled (with locals), served, paid their checks and gone. We were... More
