I am not a great lover of fish due to the dislike of bones. The stone bass I had tonight was delicious and utterly bone-free, as was the sea-bass that the children ate. The staff are friendly and patient, the setting is lovely and, unlike other reports, we had no mosquito bites!

Really Michelin 2**? Times must be changing if Ocean is truly a two star Michelin restaurant. The service was appalling we waited over two hours for our first course to arrive while we watched the couple opposite us who arrived five minutes after us have the whole of their meal before we had any of ours! I don't know if... More

Having eaten in my fair share of Michelin starred restaurants I would have to say that Ocean was one of my least favourite experiences. Overall the food was almost like they were trying too hard as some dishes did not work well together. The service was also very drawn out and long, it seemed that they would wait for the... More

The tasting menu provides a wide variety of flavours to savour. Great location which is in accordance with the quality of the food and service. Don't stop at the hotel bar for a pre-prandial or you may be deafened by singing hotel guests. We had the misfortune to visit at the same time as a bunch of Celtic post nuptial... More
