“Best spot for Seafood lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

If you are looking for a place that serves delicious seafood but is not as expensive as the other restaurants, then head over to the Ocean Basket in Mall of Mauritius, Bagatelle.

We dined at this restaurant this afternoon and the experience was truly pleasing.

The restaurant has outdoor and indoor seating and was in fact filled to capacity (it shows that this is one of the popular seafood restaurants in the area). So we had to wait for about 10 minutes to be seated at a table.

The ambience was good and the restaurant was clean.

We ordered the King Klip with salad and the Line fish with salad and chips together with the Garlic Prawns.

The food came in about 15 minutes.
The Garlic Prawns were juicy and perfectly done. The yoghurt and cucumber sauce went perfectly with the prawns.

The Line fish was also cooked to perfection (good quantity) and it was delicious.
The King KIip still remains one of my favourites. The fish is juicy and has a very unique taste. It was cooked to perfection.

We chose the salad and it was served in bowls and it was very fresh and tasty. A good option to go with the nicely fried/grilled fish.

Overall, this is one of my favourite seafood restaurants in Mauritius.
I am a big eater and the portions served at Ocean Basket are just fantastic. One dish was more than enough for me.

If you are looking for a good place to enjoy quality seafood at affordable rates, then this is the place for you.

Only had the sushi from there. Good sushi--pricey for quality of sushi though.

“Wow! Wow! Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

If you are a sea food lover, look no further! This restaurant serves the best! Excellent value for money, mouth watering meals and great service. Be prepared for a wait though - the queues are an indication of how popular this restaurant is. But its worth the wait, you will leave already planning your next visit!
