As title says, nothing special, pleasant place but, there are many other places, similarly priced and outside. I have been a couple of times and won’t rush back, it was just convenient en route.

Response from Agata K | Reviewed this property |
the main part Ocean Basket is a little lower than the entrance to the restaurant. Wheelchair access can be a bit difficult (I'm not sure). You can easily get to the garden, to level 0 (near the entrance) and to the toilet
