Description: Oceana Restaurant and Wine Bar combines the perfected culinary methods of yesterday, the creativity of tomorrow, and the spice of the Caribbean all in one of the most beautiful and historic locations on island. Our guests can expect an unforgettable culinary and dining experience in a private villa right on the water, and feel the years disappear as they are swept away from the busy modern world while enjoying locally-sourced and artfully-prepared entrees. We also feature house-infused cocktails and an impressive wine selection. A TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence recipient several years running, Oceana has also been voted "Best of VI" multiple times, most recently for Best Gourmet Dining 2016.

“Sits on the waterfront, great setting, great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Four of us went here for dinner and really enjoyed it. We sat outside, about 25 feet from the water. We could hear the waves coming ashore. The restaurant sits in the former site of a very old Russian embassy which was quite elegant. The service was very good and all of us really enjoyed our meals. I had the veal, my wife had steak and the others had seafood.

“Worth the trip and every dollar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

This restaurant has everything. First off, I'm from the DC area so no sticker shock when there is outstanding food, service, and atmosphere. If you rarely dine in fine places, you should put this place on your list to have that experience. Our server, Irina was incredible! Every bite was delicious from the shrimp bisque to the tilefish my husband enjoyed and filet mignon and shrimp dish I had. She made sure my wine glass always was tended to the paced the evening beautifully. Watching the illuminated cruise ships heading out was a lovely touch. No flaws at Oceana!

“Great Service and VIew . Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

By far the best service we had on the Island. The view was great and the food was good. The soup and appetizers were absolutely great. For the man course we got the shrimp and filet. The shrimp was great but the filet was just ok and lacked flavor.


I will definitely return
