Amazing food and excellent staff. The location is amazing - seems like it hangs out over the water in Grand Case Bay. We will be back every trip.

This was our first visit to Ocean 82 but it will not be our last. We share an escargot in puff pastry with a delicious garlic cream sauce. For dinner, my husband had the Dover Sole and I had the Sea Bass special - both were perfectly prepared with a delicate sauce that did not overpower the fish. For dessert we shared the Grand Manier soufflé and that was to die for! Definitely save room for that! The setting was lovely and we enjoyed watching the sunset.

Who could ask for more? Excellent foor, service and ambience were plentiful. We dined at the glass rail overlooking the sea, sailboats and Anguilla in the distance. The wait staff brought my wife's dessert with a sparkler and candle while singing Happy Birthday. It was a magnificent end to our time on St. Martin

3 stars because of cost and that when arriving for reservation for the occasion of our anniversary we were told that they couldn't honor our request of a view since reservation was a recent request. Nothing was mentioned to congratulate on anniversary or suggestion of dessert. We weren't looking for something free, but a more personal touch for cost of experience would have made us want to come back again. Instead felt that they didn't care since they had no problem being busy.. I reserving months in advance directly with restaurant. Meal and server were exceptional. Cost of experience is higher than neighboring restaurants that are comparable or better menu.

We read the reviews on another site, and almost didn’t go. We’re glad we did!

First of all, go early- no later than 6:00 pm during COVID restrictions. They have to close kitchen service at 6:30 - we got there at 4:15. (Saturday)

The service was very good - they sincerely wanted to make sure you were happy. We started with a few unusual cocktails which were very good they were happy to make whatever changes you wanted.

One of our friends eats gluten- free- I will tell you that the gluten free bread was fantastic- I preferred that to the real bread!

Started with the traditional escargot which were possibly the best I’ve ever had. Tender with great garlic flavor. We usually get 6 at a restaurant but there were 12! Then the lobster bisque. I can’t say it was as thick as a bisque, and didn’t have bits of lobster, but the flavor was outstanding.

The cheese plate was not to my liking, but the guest who had it really liked it. I think they were just too sharp or pungent for me, but if you like that kind of cheeses (4), you’ll like it.

The lamb shanks were tasty, not overly seasoned but not bland either. The duck (medium) had a nice but maybe a little gamey flavor. I eat game meats all the time so it didn’t bother me, but if you don’t you may want something else.

There were a few menu items that were not available (most of the best fish dishes, and eggs?) but the menu is pretty comprehensive.

The view is beyond SPECTACULAR! It was a little pricey, but not so much that I wouldn’t recommend.

I know some other websites had very critical reviews, but that was not our experience.

Table waterside was not available, told to wait by bar, bartender never approached us to ask if we wanted a drink, we were brought to our table , asked if we wanted water, water came and no one else came by table for almost half an hour at wichard point we told the manager we were leaving. I offered to pay for the bottle of water, he apologized and asked us if he could buy us a drink, we declined and left

Ocean 82 is in an amazing location on the water, with the sound of the waves of Grand Case beach at your feet.
The service is extremely attentive and helpful - their recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed a fresh tuna tartar, followed by a whole sea bass filleted at the table and a red snapper in a basil-garlic sauce. Vanilla creme brulee was excellent.
Highly recommend the restaurant - wonderful experience all around!

Ocean 82 was an absolutely phenomenal experience. It started with a beautiful sunset then moved into tremendous service. The meals were spectacular, tasty, and unique. I had the risotto with razor clams and garlic. It was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant and give it five stars and Susie Astec Lee.

A joke!
Well, it was very expensive and not even so good. There was no fresh fish but lobster, very disappointing for a « seafood restaurant »
Me and my brother ordered lobster taliatelle, there was two Miserable Pieces of lobster dropped on top of the pasta for an enormous price.
My Mother took a whole lobster, one grilled side and the other one with garlic, cream and other stuff, and in that side they took pieces from it so it wasn’t even a whole lobster in the end and they probably took from my moms lobster to put on our pasta !
I would not recommend this restaurant even though it’s beautiful.
The food it not special or good and giving miserable lobster like this is stealing.

The menu was exceptional with a wide range of choices - the surf and turf was fantastic. The cocktails were too sweet, but there’s a good wine list. Service was a mixed bag: servers were very accommodating, but the hostess was very rude, accusing us of arriving late for our reservation even after we showed her the Open Table confirmation of the changed time.

Birthday celebration! The hostess was gracious and majestic. Our server Victor was exceptional in explaining the specials and was attentive to our needs. It was amazing to see the Branzino filleted and plated in front us. Very artistic! Each course was better than the previous one, the lobster roll were to perfection and the “Everything Strawberry” was magnificent! The restaurant is beautifully situated with the moonlight above and the waves lulling us into a calm and soothing moment.

Ok let me just say what a special place. Beautiful location on the bay overlooking the beach and water. Food was expertly prepared fresh and fabulous. The staff was charming and the wine list is excellent. Went as a recommendation from staff at la Samanna and will always go back every time we visit this enchanted island.

Ocean 82 is situated in the lovely town of Grand Case the was devastated by a hurricane a few years ago. Fortunately for all, they have rebuilt and the restaurant is even better. We had eaten here before on another visit and were anxious to return to see how the restaurant was doing. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately near the clear glass railing overlooking the ocean. The view was beautiful just past sunset. We were served by a friendly and well trained staff. Our waiter helped us with a wine selection to pair well with our meal choices of salad and sea bass for me and escargot and mahi-mahi for my husband. The meal was well presented and cooked to perfection. Kudos to the chef. The evening was everything we had hoped it would be.

Nice situated, but very noisy when busy, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. Add to this annoying high volume music from speakers. Definitely not the place for a romantic, intimate delicious diner on busy days even though located on the beach. Better alternatives available or visit midweek.
The food, wines and service are fair.
