We were a group of two adults and four teenagers. We arrived for an early lunch and some working space. It worked well. It was quiet, and they had plugs nearby. They had a great sushi special on and all the food was fresh.

We waited over 2 hours for our meal to be served. Service was totally useless, and management even worse. If it hadn't been so late, we would have decamped elsewhere. Problem was that the Sushi could not be prepared - whoever the Sushi Chef was, they were definitely not in the building. When it arrived, it was a very sorry sight - cut with blunt knives, horribly arranged and pieces missing. It was a complete and utter catastrophe. We complained to the manager who could only say 'sorry' over and over again. It never occurred to him that perhaps talking to us and explaining what the problem was may have helped, as would have deducting something from the bill, or bringing extra bread to the table, etc. etc. Not a clue. Only go here if you have hours and hours to kill.

This restaurant has no atmosphere ,nor a good manager.Place looks gloomy; should have painted it white...
Personnell was looking more at the screens watching cricket or rugby than looking after the guests .

This restaurant is not a good example of an Ocean Basket (all franchised). Atmosphere not great. Food not as appetising as other branches. Very disappointed with our meal - which was the basic fish and chips in a frying pan

We stopped at Ocean Basket as it was one of the first restaurants we saw leaving the place we were overnighting at. When we walked in on a Saturday night and there was only 1 other table occupied we were a bit alarmed, but entered none-the-less. The food wasn't terrible, but when it came to dessert we asked after the cheesecake (being baked or fridge) and the waiter told us that "all the desserts are frozen so they heat them up to defrost them" - not quite what you want to hear. Perhaps it's like that in all franchises? On the whole, our table was clean; the service fair; but next time we'd try one of the independent eateries along the main street instead (and there were many).
