Oceana Coastal Kitchen is the vibrant, signature restaurant inside the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa on San Diego’s Mission Bay. Opened in 2015, Oceana Coastal Kitchen’s cuisine embraces fresh California flavors served in a memorable waterfront setting.
A modern, marine-inspired design extends throughout the restaurant, including a quartz-topped cold bar embedded with mother-of-pearl and sea glass. An 800-gallon aquarium stocked with an array of tropical jellyfish anchors the blue-accented dining room, while Oceana’s wraparound outdoor patio provides panoramic views of Mission Bay and towering palm trees.
Executive Chef Steven Riemer leads the kitchen and pays special attention to the use of high-quality, sustainable ingredients. Prior to joining Oceana, Riemer worked alongside The Lodge at Torrey Pines’ heralded Executive Chef Jeff Jackson for eight years, and he has cooked at the esteemed James Beard House in New York City and the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel.
Oceana welcomes guests from morning to night, with breakfast dishes ranging from delicious egg plates such as Frittata of Smoked Salmon to south of the border options like chilaquiles and breakfast burritos. As the afternoon arrives, so do lunch options like Oceana’s Tarragon Shrimp Salad Sandwich and the Island-Style Seared Ahi Tuna Salad.
Oceana’s elegant dinner service is highlighted by plates such as Sea of Cortez Scallops, Two Ways Duck Risotto and Cold Smoked Niman Ranch Pork Chop. Alternately, throughout the day visitors can opt for a seat at the cold bar where handcrafted sushi and other seafood favorites are made before guests’ eyes.
Each Sunday, guests can also indulge in an ocean-inspired buffet at Oceana’s Sunday Champagne Brunch. Cold bar items like smoked salmon, mussels, ceviche and more are complemented by fresh fruits, pastries, and salad and antipasto buffet tables.
