The service was terrible! The Sushi was tasteless The wasabi was probably old. My boyfriend had the prawn and mussel combo, and he said it was average. Expected a little more from Ocean Basket. Especially in a seasonal town.

I ventured in to this restaurant on one occasion about a year ago and ordered salmon from their sushi menu. The salmon had clearly been frozen before being served to me. It was vile. I will never set foot in there again.

Had the misfortune to eat here. We waited more than an hour and a half after ordering, during which time no one came to check on us. Had to go to the bar for drinks, and they didn't come clear the table so it got to be a mess. Staff got ticked off if we asked them questions. The waiter... More

Warm and cozy Restaurant (especially during winter days)with a wide variety of seafood dishes. Amazing fresh taste and there is even a sushi bar. We had the sharing Seafood platter for two. As I said amazing. It is situated just outside the mid town on the road to Cango Caves.
