This is the second time I have eaten at this restaurant and again the food was excellent! The tropical infusion of different flavors and the presentation make for a great meal. The outdoor terrace seating make for a great ambiance and for those Sunday afternoon brunches or early evening dinners. I was in Puerto Rico for my 27th wedding anniversary and our Sunday lunch culminated a perfect weekend. I must also commend the owner Todd Berman and management who seem to be always present and pay attention to the smallest of details. It was full and I can see that it is becoming quite popular among the locals and tourists. I cant wait to go back at night one day and see how the new upstairs area is being used and make it a night.

Went there primarily to sit right by the ocean and have a good food. Check and check. The view is spectacular, right on the beach. The food was very good and the service was fine. My wife had the snapper and I had a special. Both were inventive and very well presented. Very tasty. Also, some very good coffee.

Visited Oceano as it was close to our hotel and well-ranked on TripAdvisor. We were moved from our initial beachside seating due to approaching rain and seemed to get out of the service loop. Waited awhile to be acknowledged, and just as we were prepared to say something our server appeared. Oceano Ceviche appetizer was delicious, fresh and enough for two to share. Entrées ordered were Palermo pork on sweet corn and diver's scallops. Both were delicious and no complaints. Cocktails were good, although my wife received the wrong order for her second drink. We went with it. We were moved again due to heavier rain and slipped further from the service loop. We ordered key lime pie and crème brulee for dessert along with decaf coffee. Dessert took forever to be delivered and fear it was delivered to the wrong table. A manager apologized without our prompting and dessert was finally received. Cardinal sin: we were served regular coffee which resulted in a LATE night before an early flight.
We met Berenice, another manager along the street as we returned to our hotel. She asked how was dinner and we were honest. She appreciated the feedback and we appreciated her interest.
To sum it up: GREAT food, so-so service. We expect better service for restaurants in this price level.

Our best meal in PR! They were slammed when our party of 6 arrived, so they asked us if we would mind having a drink on the rooftop bar (which we were happy to do). Eventually, the kitchen was caught up enough for them to seat us & we had a great meal...really enjoyed how helpful the servers were & the manager helped us with some great wine selections.

Food was great. Service from David was nothing short of perfect. Good vibes and everyone that worked there seemed to want to make a difference. The view is outstanding and a must try while you're in San Juan.
