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 is a wonderful restaurant that is down near Crown Bay. It's a little far from the Red Hook area but the food is great and the view can't be beat. Try to arrive before the sun goes down as the sunset is awesome.

Our last night we ate here with our family and my thanks to Bridget for taking such good care of us! This place was amazing we loved the maui maui and loved the steak and the tuna was great! We had water views and because this was off season we weren't rushed and the wait staff were very attentive!

One of the better restaurants on island. The building is beautiful - evidently used to be the Russian embassy. Great views of the harbor. Service was excellent. Most of us had the salad for appetizer which was refreshing- shaved veggies including beets, fennel, etc with a light dressing. One person had the grilled octopus, which although pricey, was fantastic- not tough at all and delicious grilled flavor. I would go back just for that. I had the Mahi which was grilled and had a nice flavor (could use a bit more salt) and romenescu sauce was really flavorful. Others had shrimp and steak which were also enjoyed. We also had desserts- espresso creme brûlée, molten chocolate cake, and sorbets. All yummy- cake was served with a brûléed marshmallow- quite yummy,but the cake was swimming in butter which I found unnecessary. Overall, really enjoyed and would go back.

I figured I would review all the places we visited in STT during our vacay - first and foremost being Oceana. This spot is located in the "Frenchtown" area of Charlotte Amalia. A perfect, scenic gem on the water with a view to the southern horizon. Let me start by saying, being from NYC, I am used to snootiness and off-Standish hosts/hostesses/maître d's, and Oceana is no different. Greeted by a professional hostess that was slightly highbrow but cordial. Table/bar service was certainly up to big-city standards, with impeccable timing and good salesmenship by "Amanda". Food was done especially well, accurate, tasteful and delicious. Desserts the same, high-quality and well-received. Overall, not a lot to complain about, except for the owner and hostess, both of who seemed totally irreverent and uncaring about guests and employees
