I actually had the food on my stomach for the next 12 hours, so I remember it very well. Being in St Lucia, we had ordered seafood but it was all a quite heavy and oily. Moreover, it was not a lot for what we paid. I must say that all the other Ocean Baskets that we have been to... More

Normally I am not a seafood or sushi fan but this place was excellent and made me want more of both. The food was terrific here - everything we had was sensational. When in St Lucia look no further for a place to eat. The food was terrific as noted, the service was good and the prices great as well.

We sat outside on the balcony late afternoon and it was so perfect. The seafood is amazing. I had the calamari (lots of it) at it was sooooo fresh and tasty. The we moved on to vegetables, sushi and combo's.... Everything was so good. I highly recommend Ocean Basket St Lucia for good food and outstanding service :)

The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can also order food from the surrounding restaurants which makes it easy to find something good to eat for everyone. Ocean Basket is a restaurant chain but still makes you feel eating in a unique restaurant and the food is simple, but very good!

The great thing about Ocean Basket is that the formula rarely changes and as a result you are guaranteed a tasty meal. There is a range of great seafood and fish offerings from deep fried to sushi. The staff are helpful and show just the right amount of attention without being in your face. Altogether a great lunch

After hearing from several other travellers that the sushi was safe and delicious I gave it a go. I loved it so much I went back the following night for more!

Regular visitors when in st Lucia. Food better than average but service today well below the norm or acceptable. Pointed out to management and expect marked improvement on next visit.

OK food, not wonderful, and took ages for it to be served. The place was not busy either, so no excuses. Wanted grilled fish, but only battered fish available. Disappointing.
