“Good prawns, grumpy staff”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

I literally made it my mission to find the cheapest prawns in St Lucia. The Ocean Sizzler came up best but was still expensive at R220/kg avg sized prawns. The kicker was that no sauce is served with the prawns, they expect you to buy sauces a R8 each! The manager lady is scary.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We went for a quick dinner to the Ocean Sizzler and were extremely disappointed with the food. The food was, in our opinion, really bad. I couldn't understand what they put on the tzatziki, but was not yogurt, it tasted awfully bland for a dish made with garlic and olive oil. It also tasted funny, which put me off completely. We are of Greek heritage, so perhaps we have different views of what Greek food must taste like, but even the simple fish my father ordered was not fresh. Food wise we had a terrible experience, the service was good, although the food did take long and I found the cutlery to be a little dirty. Maybe we just caught this restaurant on a bad day, still I will not recommend it.

“Devine seafood and drinks”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We were a family and friends of 12 eating at the ocean sizzler. All of as was impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. We can highly recommended the prawns, calamari, steak and the highlight of the meal was the royal platter - delicious and tasty. Cocktails is a must try. The owners are definitely customer caring. This was the best restaurant in St Lucia and we will recommended them highly.
