A family dinner on an upstairs terrace overlooking the street. Ocean Basket is a franchise so follows a standard formula. Food was OK but nothing special. Staff were friendly.

A meal for two on the upstairs terrace. Nice location with view on the bustling street. This is a franchise so food is standardized but OK. Friendly and professional staff. Quick service. Average food.

We went in for cocktails in the afternoon but the mojo was very small and not so tasty and mint leafs was old. So wouldn't go there again.

Clean efficient. Interesting not expensive Menu served without drama. Very tasty and good portions. Wish we had had time to go again. The only shame is that once you have been there is is doubtful if you would try anything else.

Sadly getting really fresh fish on this coast seems very difficult but these people do everything they can to atone for that weakness.The fish whilst previously frozen is good ,well cooked and presented.

I was most impressed with the service at this Resturant. The lady that took care of us was very efficient. I felt like we never had to wait for our meals and every time we needed something, she was right at our side. The food was good but not the best I have had at Ocean Basket.

It is as though you are invisible- no aircon working and everything seems to be a mission for the staff. They have a gold mine but need to start mining it!!
