We visited Ocean Basket 3 times during our stay. It's a popular place with locals and visitors. Food is excellent value and the staff are friendly and efficient.

This seems a popular place as we found it was quite busy and lots of activity and busy vibe. Food taste was excellent, even though we waited a bit, quality seemed high. Found the staff to be very helpful and the two managers who came to check on us, Lungi and Nsika made us feel quite nice. Highly recommended

If you want an ocean view...this is not the place to go. But if you want good food, friendly service and a great atmosphere I recoomend it. Great at the price.

Calamari was rubbery, staff were friendly and the service was good. This restaurant sometimes puts out great food, but it seems they also quiet often lately have their off days...

Good food. Very busy at the time we visited. Waiters were attentative, our waiter was over-zealous, spilling our wine on two occasions when pouring into our glasses. Otherwise, a nice casual experience.

Not the same standard as other Ocean Baskets in the franchise. Prawns were burnt and dry, rice was undercooked, beer was warm, waiter was insensitive to requests..... would not recommend
