“Ocean front paradise on a plate!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Oceano is fantastic. It is a wonderly modern open air concept restaurant that is located beach front in the Condado area of San Juan. The atmosphere is light and airy because the restaurant is totally open allowing the ocean breezes to flow throughout the space.

The menu is equally as creative but at the same time not pretentious. The food is delious and is all very well done and the presentation is wonderful. The menu highlights a great deal of wonderful seafood and other unique items. The bar menu is just as creative as the food menu focusing on items native to the area in interesting combinations.

The best part of Oceano is the staff and their tremendous service. Everyone in the restaurant is focused on your dining experience. They all work together to make sure that you have a wonderful dining event. I ate there several times and had the pleasure of being served by Norberto! He had a great blend of professionalism and casualness. He was able to read our various diners and act in a fashion that would appeal to each individual. He was gracious, funny and extremely hospitable.

We went there three times during our stay because it is that good. It is the best dining experienceI have ever had in PR and on of the best anywhere.

The only draw back is it is a little hard to find. If your cabbie does not know the location, tell them it is across the street from the Atlantic Beach Hotel.

“Great place to sit by the beach and have a good meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

We knew nothing about this restaurant when we wandered in for a very early dinner, having missed our lunch because of difficulties in getting settled on our first day ever in San Juan. It is in the heart of Condado (San Juan's version of Rodeo Drive). Most of the people around us were having late afternoon cocktails, but they were ready and willing to serve us a two-course dinner. We were on the ground floor in open-air seating with a lovely view of the beach. The service was attentive and relaxed (not an easy balance). Our appetizers and entrees were all well prepared, nicely presented, and tasty.

“Great beach restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

We stayed next door at the Atlantic Beach hotel...so lucky!We waited at the bar for a table outside,and enjoyed the service and martinis(and Doris!)...had fried calamari there,cut lengthwise like steak fries...interesting and delicious with 2 sauces.Our beachfront table was wonderful...Ordered the pork,my partner had mofongo with shrimp(only 3!)...delicious,great service as well.I mentioned casually to the waiter that the food was room temperature,but still good...just fyi(we had a great time,not complaining)...Within a few minutes the lady manager came to apologize,and chatted with us for minutes...so nice;and she comped the food part of the meal....Great qualitiy control and service...we were stunned by how caring she was...This is a first rate place,and the beachfront locale cant be beat.

“Amazing Calamari!!!!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Great beachfront place. The staff is great but busy, so be aware of some delays!!!! The food is just great, we had calamari, mahi mahi chicharrones and ceviche, everything was perfect, specially the calamari were fried to perfection, but the ceviche had no chili so it was kind of simple!!!
