On the evening of March 4th, 2015 The Catamaran Resort and Spa Hotel opened their new San Diego restaurant, Oceana Coastal Kitchen, a waterfront dining hideaway. Their casual-chic welcome event was privately held to a select group of guests to offer an insider taste of what can be expected at the spacious waterfront dining spot. Led by Chef Steven Reimer, the chic and tropical dining spot specializes in serving classic seafood dishes, sushi options, and decadent desserts to satisfy an array of taste buds. Almost all of the ingredients found within Oceana Coastal Kitchen are local and stem from the coast of Baja to the Pacific.
In proper decor to match the gorgeous bay side location, the indoor and outdoor restaurant has an aquatic and tropical appeal. When entering the indoor part of the restaurant, one is greeted by a quartz-topped cold bar, a stunning sight of a circular wall-to-floor, 800 gallon jellyfish aquarium, as well as florescent mother of pearl and sea-glassed pieces. Perfect for a date night with your man, the dim lighting and large sliding windows work together for an unforgettable experience and view of Mission Bay. However, it should be duly noted that the outdoor section of the restaurant is just as breathtaking as its indoor counterpart.
Great for winding down after a fun day on the water or after a relaxing trip to the spa, the outdoor patio offers panoramic views of the bay, but with more lounge-friendly seating. From the heat of the tiki torches and adjacent lava rock fire pits, it’s hard not to feel like you are somewhere in the Pacific Islands. Looking left to right, one will be surrounded by the presence of gorgeous palms, exotic florals, and heavily detailed stone-work.
So whether you are a local San Diegan or are just visiting San Diego, Oceana Coastal Kitchen is an absolute must try restaurant. To give a little taste of the event, check out some photos of the restaurant opening below.
