We dined here on 2 different nights and the food we had was terrific. Servers were friendly and helpful. Worth a visit.

Ate here for one dinner during our stay at the Westin and we were totally unimpressed. Dinner rolls- stale, hard. Turkey sandwich- on plain flat sandwich bread, very bland. Asian salad- no flavor, mostly diced peppers. Kids meals were fairly typical- chicken tenders, fries. Prices were $15-20, and well above 20 for more standard entrees like fish or shrimp. After...

We stayed at the Westin. We ate here for brunch several mornings. Highly recommend the breakfast. I would prefer to go to Big Fish or Canoa off the resort near the hotel for dinner. We did like the conch chowder but dinner wasn't special - go to a restaurant off the resort for dinner, but it is convenient if you... More

Our first breakfast was amazing. Great buffet, wonderful service and a good selection. The native lizards make their rounds followed by the resort cat. That evening however, we disappointed by the meal. I'd ordered seared Ahi Tuni - it was cooked all the way through. Service was good though. We gave Ocean one more chance for brunch the next morning,... More

We ate breakfast and chose the buffet during our stay and it was great. There is something for everyone including the omelette stations. Dinner was surprisingly quite good. Cajun anything was perfectly done. Great wine list with plenty of well priced white and red French wines. Bread was also a highlight.

We enjoyed our dinner at Ocean which is a restaurant in the Westin Dawn Beach Resort. The food was very good. My grouper was tasty and cooked to perfection. The restaurant is more expensive than others of its quality outside the resort. The service was friendly and attentive but the restaurant was very quiet.

I know.. I could not believe it either. But everything... Everything was amazing. The kids cleaned their plates. Vegetables, rice, sides and all. Best meal we have had on the island.

Been here a few times already. Staff are superfriendly and attentive, and the food is very nice. Portions are more on the large side. Cuisine not particularly creative but all very correct and tasty. Very pleasant outdoors seating area by the pool. Will return. Thanks.

Great view of the pool area and ocean from the patio dining area. Johnny Cakes and Conch Fritters for appetizers were wonderful. I had a very healthy salad and my wife's grouper sandwich was very good.

I have enjoyed dinner at this restaurant many times, and it's always crowded. Dinner was another story not crowded and the food was blah, fish not tasty, Malbec tasty . But I must say the waitress handled our dissatisfaction like a professional . Again breakfast yes........
