“good location close to beach and centre”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

the four of us went twice to this restaurant on our recent trip to Flic en Flac, the first visit was great no problems, good food (one steak, three chinese) and friendly service, the second visit was not so good, two of us ordered chinese food again which was good but two of us ordered european food - chicken chips and salad - the chicken was not cooked through and had to be sent back and the quality of the chicken was not good either. still worth a visit but suggest stick to the chinese menu

“Give a miss on a busy night”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Stunning view. Waiters very friendly. The food was a disappointment however. We arrived a few days before Christmas and all the other beach front restaurants were fully booked so when we heard Ocean Restaurant still had space, we jumped. Bland, tasteless food seemed the order of the night! Over priced and under delivered.

“Great location, not bad food”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We stopped here on our first night as they had a sign for happy hour cocktails, buy one get one free, and after we left we realised that they had done us and not given us the deal, so we thought we would give them a chance to redeem themselves and popped in for a meal the following week. The food was allright, but not in the same league as Twin Garden or Hippocampe, but also not the same price bracket. The service was ok, nothing special, and in fact that would probably be the over riding memory of the Ocean restaurant, fairly forgettable compared to others in Flic en Flac

“Stay away!!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

You could be attracted by its nice presentation, as we had. But after that I can only say that the 4 of us got sick after that - quite expensive - chinese taste dinner. Quite all dishes were greasy and stuffy, it all semed to be fried in the same oil. The vegetable rice was overcooked and untasted. Never back again!

“will not return”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We have had dinner here on previous holidays and been happy with the food and service but over the past two years it seems standards have slipped big time.

The restaurant looks attractive and inviting from the outside but on entering I was rather surprised to see a table by the entrance with allsorts of rubbish on it, screwed up napkins, books and pamplets.

The waitress took our drinks order while we perused the menu which I have to say had plenty of choice. She seemed to understand our request for meals after we repeated it several times but my steamed rice never appeared, meanwhile I shared my husband's large portion of special fried rice.

The meals were just so so, rather bland tasting which soon went cold.

We won't eat there again and on walking past most evenings it appears others have the same idea, never seen it busy
