We decided to do our seated wedding at Oceana restaurant. So we had a 4 course meal for 23 persons. Everything seemed under control as soon as we arrived. We found everything prepared and the food was to die for! A special mention goes to Ronnie where he took care of us at all times, constantly checking up on us,... More

We visited the restaurant after quite a number of months. It is now newly refurbished. One thing (actually two) that has not changed is the excellent quality of the food provided and the very good service from all the staff. Good job to Ahmed for being an excellent server - very attentive and quick.

Great experience, excellent food and very good customer service! The only thing I would change is that the chairs won't make noise when you move them to get up or to sit down. But on the whole it was amazing! Will go back agian for sure.

Since the restaurant was refurbished with a fresh look, we've decided to reserve a table for two last Saturday. The buffet had a vast selection of dishes for everyone's taste and honestly I had difficulties to decide which dishes to try. The waitress, if am not wrong by the name of Lyanne was very professional and took care of us... More

Stayed at Hilton St Julians (which is a great hotel in a fantastic location) and decided to dine in the Oceana restaurant as the special themed 'Indian' Friday night buffet had been heavily promoted on the screens in the reception area. Firstly anybody who has had indian food before will tell you this was a poor excuse for an 'Indian'... More

Look, we were not expecting much but the delivery was below this. The menu or offering had no resemblance to proper Indian cuisine, the Popperdoms were greasy, the rice was awful, the curries were more Thia than Indian .. Where was the spicy Madras or the Tandoori Chicken or proper Naan or Kebabs . Not for us and I can... More

Well, it is not the first time we have been to the Oceana Sunday Buffet lunch, either with family or with friends. Starting with the finger-food, meandering your way through the soup, the mouth-watering pasta, all the way to the main course, and obviously to the scrumptious dessert buffet tables, makes a most enjoyable lunch. Needless to say, the Oceana... More

We dined at this restaurant during the week and opted for a table outside. Atmosphere was calm and very relaxing aided by the fact that it was not very busy at the time. Buffet food was cooked to perfection and we were very impressed with its quality. Will definately visit again.

The ambience is nice and the presentation of the food is good. However the quality of the various dishes was very mediocre. The starters/ antipasti were abundant but not very original, whilst the main courses were good but not worth their price tag. There were many desserts on offer though were quite mediocre. The place is not worth the price.

Thank David G
