The Best Food I have had in a long time

Right from the start we felt at home. We were seated outside overlooking the water and the boats coming and going. Our service was first rate and the food could not have been better. There were 8 in our party and we would all rate the Oceana a 10.

the restaurant was very beautiful. We had a great table overlooking the ocean. The food was excellent. I had the crab cakes quartet which is four mini crab cakes each topped by a different sauce. The Boullabaise was delicious and loaded with seafood. There was lobster, shrimp, mussels and calamari in a very tasty broth. The duck appetizer was very... More

We travel to St. Thomas often but have never dined at Oceana. I am so glad we did on this trip. It is our new favorite for first class dining. The food is wonderful--my husband raved about the lobster bisque and my lobster tail entree was perfect. The service was attentive yet not overbearing. And the setting in an old... More

This upscale restaurant perfectly located in front of the Caribbean Sea in an old villa in Frenchtown, offers excellent fusion food presented with style and originality. Very good wine selection and great cocktails. Service was irreproachable, the staff was caring and willing to exceed our expectations.

We made reservations for 6pm on the outside terrace, waters edge. Outstanding view for the evening, some late afternoon sea planes take off and land. 5* food and menu. Excellent wait staff. Beautiful bar area. Lovely art display on 2 upper level. A must when visiting Sr. Thomas. Outstanding.

We dined here last week while vacationing in St. Thomas. We came here based on a recommendation of a friend. As the title suggests, the menu offerings were not your typical selections. While the basic food groups were offered, it was the presentation which was outstanding. Try it our for yourself. You will not be disappointed. I wish we could... More

Beautiful plantation style building with an open feeling with open kitchen. We chose to eat at the bar which was beautiful and had a great bartender, Felix. We started of with appetizers that were beautifully plated and delicious. The menu was innovative and had something for everyone. The entrees were delicious as well. We had a couple of visits from...

We have been coming here almost every year for 10 years. It never disappoints and there are always new inspirations on the menu. This is not a place for the budget conscious or frugal traveler. This is a place for foodies to be among their own, transcended in gastronomic ecstasy. We usually celebrate our wedding anniversary on St Thomas and... More
