  • Romantic In San Juan

    We were in San Juan to celebrate our anniversary and we wanted a romantic restaurant with a scenic view. We happened upon Oceano and we could not have found a better choice! We had the bacon scallops and shrimp mofongo plus fried calamari for appetizer. The view was the ocean and warm breezes with outdoor seating. The Manager, Marilyn, saw that it was a bit windy that night and moved us indoors with the windows open. she along with the entire staff were totally customer attentive and made our visit so much more enjoyable. We will be back!

  • Best Romantic Beach Dinner EVER

    Dined on 11/16/2014
    We just got engaged and were in Puerto Rico celebrating. There were a few restaurants on the beach in San Juan to choose from, but this one had the best reviews, so we chose to dine here for our last night. The views were simply STUNNING!! We requested to sit on the deck, since we were celebrating, and they even saved our table when we were late due to parking. The food was great, but the view was definitely my favorite part of the experience. Will definitely go back when we return in the future!

    We enjoyed the ocean views here and particularly liked our appetizers: grilled pineapple salad with pickled jicama, and fried calamari "steaks" (like batons of tender calamari). We also enjoyed our grilled shrimp on yucca mafongo and grilled snapper on root vegetable mash, despite both fish being slightly dry and the root mashes being a little strange. We found the cocktails a bit over-hyped. The passion fruit creme brulee was excellent. Our waiter, Norberto, was enthusiastic, helpful, and professional. Overall it was a good dining experience.

    We were asked if there were any food allergies chef should be made aware of and if we were celebrating a special occasion. It was my birthday, I said "no fuss, please"! We were given choice of seating. We naturally opted for the deck alongside the beach where you could see/hear the ocean waves & the Coqui's. Our server was great & fun. He explained the dishes very well. Food arrived timely. We felt it was reasonably affordable. we had the shrimp mofongo which they do with a twist on the traditional, wine & dessert. The restaurant is very beautiful, modern & very romantic. There is an option to dine Oceanside on the sand. maybe next time. Our server brought my dessert w a sparkler in it which was lovely. All in all a most enjoyable evening.

    Our visit to Oceano was fantastic. Chef Gonzales has truly taken an open mind to his menu, making the dining experience as dramatic as the amazing ocean side view. Our server Fidel was very knowledgeable and seemed to have a passion for Oceano. Great service! We experienced Calamari like we have never seen before. The signature pork did not disappoint, full of flavor. Overall a fantastic evening.

    My husband and I dined here during our vacation to San Juan. I must say the food was excellent. I had the scallops which were delicious and had a memorable flavor. We also shared the beef dumpling appetizer which was fantastic. The meal was definitely our most flavorful and favorite on the island. The scenery and service were also wonderful. The one drawback I would mention is that if you have to sit inside it continues to have a very clubby feel to it (it was a converted club to begin with). Sitting outside by the water however, would give that more romantic feel if that's what you're seeking!

    My husband and I were visiting with another couple for a conference and wanted to take them out for a special celebratory dinner because they recently tied the knot. We researched and read reviews and determined that Oceano was the place to go. We enjoyed the spectacular service of Vladimir on Friday night 10/24/14 who took extraordinary care of us. He took photos of us, made great food and drink suggestions and made sure we were always happy and enjoying the night. Each of us felt that our meal was the one of the best meals we've ever had in a restaurant and the view and ambience spectacular.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Oceano! There were 6 of us in our party, and everyone was very well attended to. The view was AMAZING (though I'd recommend getting there before dark to really enjoy the ocean views!). The foods were fresh and worked for a mixed palate of needs (we had a "pescatarian" who only ate fish...great options for vegetarians as well!). Service was good - though our waiter was really slammed, he was still very friendly. The restaurant even called us a cab when we were ready to go, so our departure was extremely smooth! Owner stopped by the table and chatted for a few minutes - very nice touch. Oh - and the desserts were AWESOME!

    I went to Puerto Rico to celebrate my birthday and stumbled upon Oceano by mistake. I must say it is the best mistake I've ever made....We had drinks at the bar while we waited for our table, 1800 Que w/ rum and the Blue Fire were delish.....Unfortunately, they were out of Snapper so we had the Churrasco and the Scallops, delish...For dessert, I was served the Cheesecake and something that resembled a Chocolate Hazelnut Flan with a sparkler on top and of course, like with everything else, delish...If I could, I would give 10 stars. Oh and btw the manager Mary and the Chef Cory were AWESOME!!!!! I can't wait to go back!

    Deck seating overlooking the beach, cool blue mood lighting, intoxicating music. Awesome view. Ordered a nice bottle of wine from out waiter, who never introduced himself, and acted like he wanted to be far far away from there. Aloof, disinterested, our waiter really dampened our experience. My wife absolutely loved her Charrasco steak with the mojito chimichurri sauce. My mofongo had 3 large shrimp on top, but nothing stuffed inside. Without any sauce, it was dry. It looked good though. We ordered the quattro leches cake, but the waiter told us they were out of it. We read other reviews that echo the "we are out if that" theme.

    Some of the food was great and some wasn't. The sweet corn soup and roasted pineapple salad were excellent. The apricot chicken was good, very sweet and a large portion. The shrimp in the entree were huge but not cooked enough and bland. Service was very good. Craig was very knowledgeable and helpful.

    Wonderful gem on the beach front. Dined with a friend but this restaurant would be perfect for a romantic dinner. In fact, a couple got engaged while we were there. Staff was very attentive without smothering us. I had the red snapper entree and it was fabulous. Was on a bed of root vegetables that were to die for. My friend the skirt steak which was great as well. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back. Can't beat the ambiance of being beachfront either!

    We had a reservation but were seated upstairs. Not outside as asked and it was noisy. We ordered the scallops which were not that special and quite pricey. We asked for water and were charged for Evian water. We did not know it was Evian water because it did not have the label on the bottle anyway. We asked not to pay for it and they took it off the bill. It was $7 for a small bottle. Our waiter was nice but the overall experience was not as good as expected from reading the reviews.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and how the food was prepared and make some excellent recommendations. The ceviche and the pineapple salad were superb! We both had the pork for our entree and it was a wonderful blend of flavors cooked to perfection. We will definitely be going back to Oceano on our next trip to Puerto Rico!

    The place has an outstanding view with excellent seafood. I had the scallops and was very surprised how well they were cooked. I would recommend to a friend. However I was there to celebrate but found it was not as romantic as I would have hoped for. The noise level was so loud it was hard to hear myself think. Other than that I would go back but you need to realize you are paying a premium for the view. The service was outstanding. Our server fidal was probably the best server ive encountered while in Puerto Rico. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves seafood.

    Craig who served us was very friendly and helpful with his knowledge of the menu and wines. Only complaint would be that the place was a bit loud. Food was terrific, everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. And they sent out 2 deserts for our birthday girls, which was very generous. Wish we had gone during daylight to fully enjoy the view, would recommend planning for slightly before sunset to fully enjoy everything this restaurant has to offer.

    The food was good, atmosphere was similar to Miami/South Beach. Juan our waiter was fabulous - friendly and attentive. This was our first time in Puerto Rico and since we had heard so much about Oceano we made reservations almost 2 months before our vacation. Unfortunately, when we got there they would not give us a table outside overlooking the ocean, which was the entire reason for us going there. We were given a table upstairs (inside) and the hostess said we would have a fabulous view. Since it was dark and we were sitting in the middle of the room there was no view (I am sure it was very nice during the day). We had our dinner but were very disappointed about not being able to sit outside.

Can't go wrong with anything you order here, but the tostones, grilled mahi mahi, grilled grilled breast, and chick wrap were amazing! So much food...couldn't eat it all.
