“The only seafood option in Larnaca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I was very surprised when visiting Cyprus not to have a plentiful choice of fresh seafood restaurants like in other Mediterranean countries. After a short search we were recommended Ocean Basket. Even though it didn't have a vast choice, it was a very good experience. Service was very attentive and friendly and there was lots of food for very reasonable price. Location was amazing as its right on the promenade in the middle of all the buzz. Doesn't compare to Spanish or Portuguese options but as far as Cyprus goes, its pretty decent!

“Breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I just love the way they serve and the fish dishes that are very nice arranged.
The view of the sea and the people walking by is just a trill of being in nature.
It is worth to take friends etc...

Delectable fish, cooked in the pan in lemon and butter and brought to table in pan. Light and lovely. The prawns look special too. A great new addition to,Larnaca sea front.

“Fast Food for fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

As previously mentioned its very fairly priced and portions are very generous. Best to go for the platters to share. Have visited several times and always sat in the outside seating area. If you happen to go without a reservation avoid being seated in the small inside area as its very noisy and you feel as if you are sat at a traffic lights intersection. They seriously have to do something about the smell from their kitchen though, I dont know how the luxury flats above cope. Staff are very friendly and service levels are quite good with the odd exception of the male duty manager who on several visits looks grumpy. Overall a good decent meal at value prices.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I visited Ocean Basket at the beginning of September with two more persons and I'm very satisfied with the food quality and quantity. This restaurant really offers a great value for money.
