Ocean Baskets are always reliable for good quality seafood at reasonable prices and attentive service and this branch doesn't disappoint. Situated on the banks of the river, the restaurant has a lovely setting and we always had a delicious meal and great time out whenever we visited there.

It's located on the river and it's a lovely vibe. Pity we were a little late. So the waiters were in a huge rush. Even though the restaurant was full.
