What a find!!! I happened to be at another restaurant waiting for seating when another couple began to talk about Oceana. I looked at my friend as if to say, what are we waiting on and within seconds we were up and out in search of this off the beaten path restaurant. We were seated in a great area and... More

Oceana is in the former location of Villa Olga - for those of us who grew up on St. Thomas! It is an open air restaurant with amazing views of Hassel Island, Water Island and the Frenchtown. Five of us went there for a business dinner after work on a Wednesday evening, so it was a little quiet. The service... More

Open air restaurant puts you feet from cresting waves, with delicious food and superb service. This is what you went on vacation for. To enjoy the best water views, make a reservation, request a table along the water, show up on time, and get seated before sunset. Then relax and enjoy. You will pay a bit more for this dining...

My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks of vacation in St Thomas and loved Oceana so much that we went twice. The first time through we had our 16 mo old daughter with us and it was hard to fully appreciate the experience. Thank god we brought our 25 year old niece with us on the trip to... More

We wanted an alternative restaurant to our old favorite Blue Havana. This restaurant was just about as good for food and service. The ambiance is relaxed and romantic. One of our group ordered the asparagus soup and she raved about it. The dessert menu was just okay, nothing really grabbed us. As far as the comments about a "sketchy" location,... More

I can't say enough about how much our family enjoyed this dinner on our last night. The food was superb and the service perfect in every way. But the venue in this historic building right on the water's edge is over the top!!!! For an expensive family dinner out (all adults, not for kids), we felt like the experience was... More

Usually this restaurant is well rated. i have had a few good meals there but yesterday was a disaster. while the ambiance was nice the lighting was horrific - almost like a search light on our faces - which took management 20 mins to rectify. the full moon and ocean view were terrific and we selected the 10 tasting menu...

Dear Sir, Thank you for taking the time to review Oceana on Trip Advisor. I do regret that your review is poor. I would like to address the issues that you encountered individually, as they are all important. To begin, the lighting in the Ocean Terrace, where you chose your table, certainly should have been adjusted as soon as you... More

Absolutely one of the best restaurants in St. Thomas. The seafood is outstanding. If you prefer meat, no worries. When you order a cut of meat rare, you get it. Special treat when a huge ship passes by in the channel, feels like you can reach out and touch it. Try to get a table on the rail overlooking the... More

We made reservations for our last full night in St.Thomas for a family of 5; and, it was the perfect way to end our week in Charlotte Amalie. If you are driving yourself, please note that Google Maps is not accurate; and, will get you close. If you reach what you think is the end of the road in the... More

1st time at Oceana. Great experience. All of our dishes were extraordinarily fresh and delicious. Beautiful setting and exceptional service from start to finish. A little out of the way but worth the trip. Can't wait to go back.
