The terrace is very nice. You can enjoy a variety of superb dishes and have a hubbly bubbly at the end. Love the coconut rice dish!

Lovely outdoor terrace but the food is just okay not amazing not bad. Definitely a nice place to while away the evening with drinks, nibbles and sheisha though.

We enjoyed our first meal at this restaurant. We were served by friendly, attentive young waitresses. We each had a delicious starter, then shared a Thai jumbo prawn curry. No problem at all. The wine list was good and not too expensive. We moved inside during our meal as it got quite chilly - again no problem for our friendly servers.

Two evenings later, we went up to the Oceans bar for happy hour, only to be asked if we had a reservation, otherwise we would have to sit inside. We only wanted one glass of wine, but the servers were so unfriendly, we left and went elsewhere. We decided to give the restaurant one last chance and went back for dinner. There were only waiters on duty that evening - extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. They refused to give us a table overlooking the pool, even though the terrace was quite empty. We left and went to the hotel's Italian restaurant where we were welcomed like old friends. So the moral of the story here is - if you are lucky, you might get a good meal - if not, you will leave as we did, disgusted by the waiter's attitude.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times.

It's actually a nice restaurant for first dates as it has a good variety of cuisine from asian to european. Therefore, you don't have to worry about what type of food your date likes! Even the shisha is on the menu! - although I would have like to have the option to have shisha indoor during summer when it's unbearably hot and humid outside!

I was here for the Thanksgiving weekend and decided to get some dinner at Oceans. The outdoor seating was great - sort of romantic; definitely not a spectacular view but nice enough for a somewhat romantic dinner. We arrived at 9pm and the place was relatively empty. The sheesha was great and so were the drinks and appetizer (we got the shrimp one). Can't say the same about the service - the staff didn't have their act together and some were more abrasive than the others.
After a couple of drinks we ordered dinner. My partner got the Paella while I chose the baked Hammour. The paella was quite nice (not stellar) but my Hammour was really bad. It was dry and unseasoned. There were burnt lemon slices that tasted really bad and the skewered vegetables were rubbery. A complete disaster.
We ordered the creme brulee for dinner (we had to wait about half an hour before we could ask for the dessert menu) and it was disappointing as well.
In summary - nice ambience but the food is just not worth it. I am used to candid reviews on yelp or menupages about restaurants and defer to the tripadvisor for hotel suggestions but this restaurant choice left a bad taste in my mouth - literally.
