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.

This restaurant was absolutely incredible. The view, to start, was beautiful. The restaurant sits on the old Russian Embassy in St. Thomas. The food was absolutely to die for. All of the seafood was fresh, perfectly seasoned, and served on a beautiful arrangement. Their wine bar was an experience in itself, and the server was able to make great wine recommendations for dinner. Absolutely recommended.

What we loved about this place was the view on the water from our terrace table. The food was very good, but the price was on the high side. The service was solid. We ate at three restaurants in St. Thomas, and though we had a great evening here, there was just something I did not like quite as much. Not sure how to articulate it except perhaps to say it was a bit more pretentious than the others, or maybe its clients are. Either way, not to detract from the review, the place gave us a great meal and a lovely view.

After several trips to this restaurant over the years, we have never had a bad meal. The ahi tuna is better than any steak I have ever had. The ambiance is fantastic as you are seated at the edge of the water in an open air space (but with a roof for the rainy times). The food is gourmet, the wine selection excellent.

We LOVED Oceana. We decided to go big for our last dinner out and were in no way disappointed. There were 7 of us and we all had a variety of appetizers, dinners and desserts and everyone loved everything. The service was amazing and everything came at the perfect time and was phenomenal, highly recommended.

My husband and I recently ate at Oceana with another couple and we all had an outstanding experience. The food choices are quite varied, the setting is beautiful - that alone is worth the visit, our meals were all delicious and we had a perfect evening. We would absolutely return on a future visit, this is a place not to be missed.
