The welcome and service at this Ocean Basket was tops! Thank you Sonya. We had our oysters which we love and our calamari three ways. You can sit on a balcony overlooking the road and you get a lovely breeze. We really enjoyed this meal. Wonderful evening!11

Although the food is good we could have done with more on our plates. The prawns are really small. Service is great and we were really looked after. Dom Pedros aren't on the menu but are a great after-dinner treat.

Its located on the main street of St Lucia. As part of a chain it has good food for a descent price. We sat on the balcony and saw a hippo walk on the main street, it's a nice bonus if it happens

Most probably because.... I kept coming here! If I get calamari as good as what they serve here, I don't need to try many other restaurants! Simply TOP! very reasonable prices and very good service

Had lunch here on a tour of South Africa. What a find - freshly cooked sea food - well presented and quickly served by very friendly staff - and very well priced due to the favourable exchange rate. I wish we had these in the U.K..

We have eaten at many ocean baskets, and this one left us wanting. The food took forever to come, and was not well cooked. The waitress was often nowhere to be found. Our mains arrived before our starters!

Their creative take on sushi was a hit with me! They combine some Mediterranean flavors with traditional sushi combinations. Yum! They make refreshing mojitos as well.

Thank Bonnie M
