I've tried ocean basket in at least three other cities, and I think the St. Lucia one has been the best I've been to. Our waitress Zandile was fantastic, so friendly and efficient, and the food was great. Nice views from the deck of the streets below too. Highly recommended.

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.
