Food is good at most Ocean Basket's, this one is the same. Service was good. The view was nice, and the fisherman fishing next to the place was entertaining

Such a pity to have such beautiful views and great food but such terrible service. We stopped going to this restaurant 2 years ago due to the lack of service and tried it on the 8th April 2017 to find that nothing has changed. The Ocean Basket chain should step in here and get it up to standard.

As a family with young children we often visited this Ocean Basket for Lunch. Wonderful views of the harbour, staff were always very friendly and attentive with our toddlers. Food was average to good, what you would expect from a chain restaurant but we would visit here again because of the friendly staff!

We went for lunch to the Harbour Island Ocean Basket in Gordon's Bay. The food was horrible. You an taste that eveything is cooked from frozen even the veggies. Oily and soggy. Even the salad was soaked with oil and totally limp. Will not go back.

What an amazing Family running a superb restaurant,always welcoming even when they have long days. You feel like you are part of the Family. Food is fresh and well presented. Location is the best feels like you are in the Mediterranean. This Family has the correct recipe.

We at here a few times in our stay and very very good food good value as well. You can take your own wine and they do not charge corkage. Nicely situated on the harbour and if your lucky you get to see the seal who lives in the bay. Beautiful
