If you love prawns.........

Almost a year, to the day, since my last review of the Ocean Basket and I stand by what I've said previously - simple but effective concept in a relaxed & pleasant restaurant.

Really pleased to see that, since that my last year, they have added a disabled toilet downstairs.

I had 12 King sized prawns, Cajun style, with rice & chips whilst others in my party had various combos, both line fish & prawn. - delicious. The children had lovely little ice cream cones for dessert whilst we tried the Dom Pedro's - good effort though not as good as in South Africa. A very reasonably priced restaurant.

Consistent and reliable

A very pleasant, relaxed place - we returned here for dinner yesterday as we like the simple but effective concept - in South Africa, where the franchise originated, it is regarded as a 'fast food' outlet. We (four adults and two children) sat outside (the acoustics are rather poor inside) in the warm, early evening sun and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

We particularly like the fish and prawn combo platters, cooked Cajun style. We keep saying that we are going to try the, excellent looking, sushi but have never quite got around to it!

Only negative is that the toilets are less than disabled friendly as they are upstairs.

still a reliable favourite

Been here a few times this year, often for a lunch of reasonably priced and sized 'sushi' rolls (eg California x 8 @ €6.50) with bottle of water to chase (large @ €2.20). Everything that made it of interest remains there : its informal, but in good condition, service isn't too attentive, but gets the job done. Generally, its a consistent performer !

Ocean Basket, still great Seafood

I had not been to Ocean basket for a while and went back on a Sunday afternoon to find that the food was still great. The Platters offer a great selection of Seafood so there is a bit of variety. The staff is always extremely friendly and this time was no different.
They were very busy so we accepted that there was a little wait, but nothing to much. The food was excellent. Only complaint I would have is that their wine list is too limited. Would like some more semi sweet wines both white and red.
As it is getting colder these days sitting inside is more of an option. The acoustics is not great however and sometimes it is difficult to understand each other. However that is a minor complaint.

If you have kids who like Seafood, the Platters are ideal as you can share them with the kids.

Good standard, as usual

Been there lots of times, this time, we had a friends little puppy, they seated us outside and it was as usual an enjoyable meal, too much for us, but a take away box meant we finished it off later.
Tall Horse Savignon Blanc was again good.
Nothing you can complain about here!!
