I was staying in a nearby hotel and did not fancy long cab rides, my hotel told me about this place and they were right. the service is prompt, friendly and attentive, the cocktails are sharp, the place is busy but not manic, the menu is vast and the food well cooked. highly recommended.

They have a reverse Happy Hour from 9pm to close and it's a great deal. In particular, the shrimp diablo, which was fantastic. Bacon wrapped with cream cheese and jalapeños. You get 3 for $7 during happy hour, compared to 4 for $16 regularly. I came in late and got two orders and water. Obviously, not a big meal (or... More

My husband and I have eaten dinner at The Oceanaire twice in post month and both visits the food was wonderful & the service was excellent! Our first visit we went alone, but the second visit we brought the kids along with us... they all enjoyed their meal! Highly recommend if you are in the Galleria area :)

Came in on a Friday night, group of 5. Service was very slow even though the restaurant was pretty empty. The dishes are way overpriced for the quantity. $30 for 6 fried shrimp and a pile of fries? No thanks. I had the grilled octopus and 2 oysters-1 cape cod, and another one I can't remember. Oysters were ok, octopus... More

A wonderful place to spend an evening. Upmarket ambience with really knowledgeable staff. Asked for recommendations and were delighted with his selections. Free bread and fresh nibbles - celery, carrot, pickle, olives appeared quickly. Great wine, beer, spirits and cocktail menu. The desserts topped the meal. The atmosphere was one of precise, efficient service with attention to detail in all... More

Having experienced fresh tuna in Grand Cayman I can attest that the preparation and presentation of my tuna dish at Oceanaire was second to none. Couple that with ambience and excellent service and that makes for a wonderful evening. My wife had a filet...also excellent!

Decent seafood on the menu. Started with oysters which were tasty, had tuna as a main which was well cooked. Cheesecake desert was large and the waiter recommended to share, good advice. All tasted well bit nothing exciting at this price level.

The restaurant looked nice and the server was wonderful. My wife and I shared a bottle of wine and an appetizer and an entree. The food was quite underwhelming especially for the price.

Food was fresh. Good sized servings. Share the side dishes cause there's enough there for at least 2 people. Dessert servings are huge so if you want to partake plan accordingly. Service was excellent. You can also eat in the bar area.
