“#1 in St. Thomas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We are frequent visitors to the USVI, and over the years have decided that Oceana is the restaurant where we'll eat our final meal on the island before leaving Paradise. The service is fabulous, the view of the waterway and two islands (Water Is. & Hassel Is) is awesome - and once the sun sets you can still see and hear the water as its only 30 feet away from you.

The wine list is reasonable and the tropical drinks are something special. As far as the food I'd recommend the Sea Bass and the Ahi Tuna (one of the best I've tasted anywhere in the world) for the seafood fans and the Filet and the Duck for the carnivores.

Save your pennies and give it a try - you'll love the experience.

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Love the setting but a little hard to get to because the streets in Frenchtown are narrow and confusing but easily worth the trip.Food was excellent as was service. Desserts were incredible as were appetizers and specialty drinks. Can't go wrong with any of their fresh fish entrees but try the roasted asparagus soup with the chunks of buttery lobster to start and you can't wait for the rest of the meal! Our travel group rated Oceana number 2 out of the top five restaurants we visited and would go back in a heartbeat.

“Best dining experience we had in St Thomas...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We are foodies and everything about this experience was EXCELLENT. Although the caliber of this place is truly special occasion, it is also island chic and a must for those looking for great food and wonderful atmosphere.

The food was fresh, prepared perfectly and tasted great! It is a beautiful, and romantic, open air restaurant with a fabulous view of the water and an island. When it gets dark, the breaking surf, washing over the rocks, is lighted. There is always something to see and something to hear – very exhilarating, relaxing.

The menu is varied, consisting of local ingredients – we had the BEST Caribbean Lobster Tail, fresh fish from mainland waters, contemporary appetizers, salads and preparations. The desserts were very, very good. The wine list was the best I have seen on St Thomas and the price markup very reasonable – about 1.5.

As this was our second trip to St Thomas and Oceana -Oceana was even better than it was the first time, we did know to bring mosquito repellant as it could be rough for those that attract those biting bugs!

“World Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Without a doubt, the head of the class on St. Thomas.
The attention to detail, the food, the wine list, all very, very nice
Quiet ocean side with Water Island and a view to die for .
Wine list is extensive, the martinis outstanding.
Owner on the premises and staff that are superbly trained, yet personable, make for a most pleasant experience.
