The food was not the best. Chips were stale and fish poor quality. Won't be back. Very disappointed. The manager pays no attention to the customers so why bother to be there

Good Location, When I go to ocean basket. Most of the time we order a seafood platter for 1 or 2. They have a good combination of seafood on the platter, their prawns and calamari is devine with lemon butter sauce. Overall a good experience
