A colleague and I chose Oceano Bistro as it was close to our Clayton office and had come highly recommended. We enjoyed for starters spinach salad and the house chowder with bread served with an olive oil dipping sauce. I chose a Bloody Mary cocktail...More

We all enjoyed our dinners, including the salmon. Their seafood is excellent. The prices are quite high, however, and the atmosphere makes you feel like you should dress up and order a bottle of wine, if that's your thing.
