Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin)
While in West Berlin, NJ, I decided to check out Oceanos Restaurant. While it’s in the grey area of diners, I decided to classify it as one. It serves diner food, looks and acts like a diner.
Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin) Atmosphere: C
Oceanos Restaurant is in a large building with plenty of parking. The inside has a long but handicap friendly ramp to get in. Inside, Oceanos Restaurant needs a definite makeover. The inside is dirty and part of the wall was falling down.
Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin) Coffee: A
Possibly the best part of Oceanos Restaurant was the coffee. It was brewed hot and fresh and the waitress added an absurd amount of whipped cream.
Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin) Food: D
Oceanos Restaurant menu had plenty of options, including all-day breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There weren’t a lot of specials, but there were plenty of options. It looked like Oceanos Restaurant was more dinner based with a lot of chicken breast, roast beef, and pasta options.
I was hungry so I decided to order the Greek Sampler. The pita bread was dry and the olives looked like they had been sitting around for a long time. It was edible but it wasn’t great. It was pathetic.
I decided to order the stuffed salmon. It came with stuffed salmon with crab meat as well as two sides. I chose beets and mixed vegetables. It also came with soup or salad so opted for a starter salad.
The starter salad was decent, but nothing unusual.
Both sides tasted frozen and reheated. It was clear the mixed vegetables were frozen and then reheated.
The stuffed salmon tasted precisely as you would think frozen fish and reheated to taste. I was disappointed because I thought it would be good. It was edible, but I wouldn’t order it again.
Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin) Dessert: C
Since my meal at Oceanos Restaurant came with dessert, (either pudding or ice cream), I ordered the rice pudding. I wanted bread pudding, but they didn’t have it. What kind of diner doesn’t have bread pudding?
Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin) Service: C
The service at Oceanos Restaurant could use help. Our waitress was friendly, but the food took a while to come out. When we got there, the hostess was on his cell phone, so it took a while for us even to sit down.
Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin) Cost: $$
For my coffee and meal, it was $20, which was too expensive for the quality of food.
Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to Oceanos Restaurant (West Berlin)?
I wouldn’t go back to Oceanos Restaurant. It was edible diner food, but it was expensive for the quality of food. Plus, Oceanos Restaurant needs a considerable makeover.
