Bought a platter for 2 from the restaurant. Food was nice but very pricey for what you get. Recommended if you are not price sensitive. The service was good, the staff were polite and warm.

At Ocean basket, every free accompanying item is rationed. Bread, paper napkins, servers, even cutleries. Pls i think i got the idea of a fish basket more than ocean.
