Ocean basket was always one of my favorites. I say was as I noticed a steady decline in food quality over the last years. Years ago I took my wife every Friday evening to Ocean basket but yesterday after visiting Ocean Basket at Cradlestone Mall...I realized I shouldn't feel guilty anymore by not going there. My wife started with the mussels, normally served piping hot on your typical Ocean Basket thick wooden plate, not today. No wooden plate and the mussels were lukewarm to cold. I started with Sushi and that was not bad. My wife's second was the hake and chips, a thin and rubbery piece of fish, supposedly to be hake? My second was a combo mussels / prawns. In the past served piping hot but today lukewarm too cold. The rice mixed with the sauce and changed the plate into a soggy mess. The mussels were fine, the prawns were small and dry. No Ocean basket, this is mediocre and average, I can cook a better and fresher dish myself at home than what you served me. I am afraid I will not be visiting your restaurant in Cradlestone Mall ever again. No value for money, consider this my last tip.More

Had lunch and the food and service was great. Staff was friendly and very helpful. They have a great menu and selection. This is by far the best Ocean basket I've been in in a long time. Well done to Management and staff for keeping...a high. Will pop in again soon.More

The food was really the worst I had in a long time. The fried fish was grey and smelled off and I took two bites of it and rather abandoned the meal in fear of getting sick. The salmon sushi was not at all fresh...and not safe to eat and as expected caused an upset tummy later that day . The green drink had some weird chemical taste . The service was ok and the price average. Will never go back . Not recommended at all.More

Some of my favorite things about the Clearwater Ocean Basket are the soccer area upstairs, TV monitor so that I can supervise my kids, and the bathroom on site. The combination of a kid-friendly area with great, healthy food options makes this restaurant a winner!

No service or attention while the waiters get busy doing nothing but there is plenty attitude on special and for free. OB Cradlestone is a good advertisement for John Dorys upstairs but we recommend you go there directly instead.
