Myself, my Husband and my in laws came to Sal for two weeks and we ate in this place a few times, we came in here for evening drinks a few times too. The food is good and fairly priced, the drinks sure offer generous servings and the late night entertainment is great! Especially Steve who we saw on three occasions perform here. He has everybody up dancing and having so much fun! The locals even gather around outside the open front bar to watch the performers play.
The staff here were fantastic! We even got them involved with the 'Allison Peg Game' and left them the peg to keep on playing (long story).
A special mention to Emerson who was great fun and an excellent waiter! Great venue for all purposes, whether a young couple or a family with children and whether eating out or drinking till late, Ocean Cafe is a great choice!

We were on a family holiday with our four grown up children and were drawn to the Ocean Café by the music and lively atmosphere just for a nightcap on our way back to our Villa having eaten elsewhere. We booked a table for the following evening to eat and were not disappointed. The meal was substantial my wife and I had the meat platter and the children had the all you can eat pizza none of us could eat dessert. The music was provided by a Latino style trio and locals took full advantage of the small but intimate dance floor which made for an Atmospheric evening . Emerson and the rest of the staff were attentive to our requirements and the wide selection of cocktails were particularly welcome.

we went for some lunch time food, and had a platter for two to share. The food was plain and simple and adequate for two. The food and beer are a bit more expensive in this central location but that was expected. My only gripe is that they advertised a range of beers and four of them were not available
