“Oakfields' FIne Dining”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Always a warm welcome, with big smiles and eagerness to please. Food has always been above par, especially their oysters and special sauces. Good variation of specials.

“Manager 101”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

We had such a let down of dinner. We went out to have a nice Prawn and fish meal. When we arrived the place was full we had no problem with the slow service. But when our food finnaly arrived the Prawns were fantastic ( but in all honesty how difficult is it to make prawns) the Hake and chips that we ordered was so oily we called the Owner/manager over to show him. His response is what this review is about. Not once did he apologise instead he made it out to be our fault for not ordering it grilled... When he left the table with the second bad plate of food. He passed his floor manager making a big scene as to how we are complaining about the food.

What ever happened to guests/costomers are always right.

I would like to Add that our Waiter Elvis was fantastic, he knew his job and not once did he pick sides whislt this whole scene was going down.

“One of the better Ocean Baskets”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Having had a previous bad experience I decided to give Ocean Basket Oakfields another chance and lunched with my father-in-law on Sunday. Food was tasty, service excellent and the hospitality of the owner excellent. I'm impressed that they have picked up their game and I will have no problem eating there again. For a tasty, no fuss fish meal, OB Oakfields delivers on the franchise promise.
