The Ocean Basket was part of a lunch stop on loosely put together tour we were on. Our guide had recommended it. After eating there, the consensus between the four of us was that the ranger must have some kind of relationship or agreement with them because it wasn't that amazing.

We were not over- or under-whelmed by the ocean basket in St-Lucia. The service was good as was the food. The view is of the main road, and the menu is standard.

Grilled seafood salads were amazing. Some of the plates with battered seafood were a bit greasy, so go for the salads with major top-ups of fresh seafood. Recommended.
