The restaurant serves standard seafood as per the typical menu. The food is usually well prepared and the service is good. Their sushi is of good quality.

This restaurant by all accounts is good. But, for whatever reason everytime I order something here it gets botched somehow. The other people are normally happy with the meal and I end up disappointed. I've ordered crayfish....it came back raw....twice....in one evening. I've ordered simple fish and chips and the fish tasted terrible. The underside of the fish was black?... More

We regularly visit Ocean Basket and have enjoyed every visit there. Waiters always friendly, food well presented and delivered to our table shortly after ordering. Fish always fresh. Even when it gets busy, we never felt forgotten or a drop in standards. Well done!

We had not been to Ocean basket for a long time but were told by friends that the service and food had improved. This was not the case and we will not go back again.

If you enjoy fish food, this is a great place to eat. Their platters are the best! A little bit of everything is always enjoyable.

Visited for lunch. The menu has been overhauled and there are now a whole bunch of new items on the sushi menu as well as the conventional menu which great. Looking forward to their winter offerings. Sushi was very good on the occasion and was thoroughly enjoyed. Not often they get it wrong. Service was very good but it was... More

So I arrive at the restaurant, get settled in a table...our waiter was okay, his attitude could have been better. So I have not been to any Ocean Baskets in 2 years...so I'm thinking I'm going to order a Surf & Turf, a platter with 2 amazing proteins steak and fish. After reading the menu 3 times, Surf & Turf...
