This restaurant is one of the best in Santa Lucia, particularly for sea food. We recommend the outside terrasse tables.

We stayed in St Lucia for 7 nights and found this to be the best place to eat. Good staff and excellent food at very reasonable prices.

Terrible service. Was on the verge of walking out when eventually I was attended to by a waiter. Sushi was fair but again had to stare at empty used plates before further service arrived! Unimpressed!

A family dinner on an upstairs terrace overlooking the street. Ocean Basket is a franchise so follows a standard formula. Food was OK but nothing special. Staff were friendly.

A meal for two on the upstairs terrace. Nice location with view on the bustling street. This is a franchise so food is standardized but OK. Friendly and professional staff. Quick service. Average food.

We went in for cocktails in the afternoon but the mojo was very small and not so tasty and mint leafs was old. So wouldn't go there again.
