Good location, good service. Wonderful fresh fish, good decor. We love sushi and it did not disappointing. There were other options on the menu if someone in your group is not into Fish. It is a lovely spot to catch the sunset. Not open for lunch

We got the red dragon roll, Hong roll and the Hawaiian roll...the red dragon had fresh tuna on top, this tuna was so fresh it melted in your mouth. Seriously the best Sushi I've had in a while. We say outside and watched the red sky across the marina. Just perfect! I wish we found this place sooner in our... More

We visited here on a Tuesday night and we loved it. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the evening. Great beer selection and the hot sake was the best I've had. We ordered Sushi. It came out with a beautiful presentation and it was wonderful! I wanted to come back and get more! Our server was amazing as... More

I make it a point to have their sushi at least once a week if not more. Super fresh. The absolute best. The sushi chef is outstanding. Incredible craftsmanship. Very happy that Ocean Star came to the island. Sitting on the deck is great - all the boats pull in and out of the marina.

Originally visiting Anna Maria Island for a different restaurant (that happened to be closed) we were delighted to find this wonderful place (after a quick check on Tripadvisor). We ordered a variety of sushi rolls and a house salad with house ginger dressing. The salad was crisp and fresh, the dressing featured tiny pieces of apple and the kani kama... More

Went there around 7:30PM with a party of 11 (including two 3 year old children). We were seated relatively quickly. The wait staff was decent at filling our glasses with water. Everything seemed perfect until the wait began... It took 45 minutes for the staff to bring our large table two simple appetizers (shimp shumai and tempura veggies). We fed... More

Delicious sushi. You cannot beat the view anywhere. Service is a little slow. But everything is made to order. So enjoy a leisurely meal on the Bikini Bay and admire the yachts at Galati's.

We came here for a family dinner - the food was excellent and there is an extensive range of sushi and sashimi. The service was friendly and efficient. Great location looking out over the marina and a relaxing place to unwind.
