The title should amplify my concern in that the dishes are all attractive and affordable, but having tried on various occasion a variety thereof, one comes to the conclusion that the tastes of each are not unique but effectively cross over from dish to dish. The sauces tend to mask the true taste of the mussels, prawns, calamari or fish,... More

I had supper here about 4 months ago - it was one of the worst places for service, food quality and I left most of my meal. I decided to give it a second chance. Stupid me. The service is awful, food quality terrible, chips taste like cardboard, and there is no 'team' here. There is a ? manager that... More

Food is not great, I found it too greasy and tasteless as if seafood has been frozen for a while. Service is great though.

Our kids love eating at this restaurant because of their outdoor play area. We went for a late lunch and on arrival, there was only one after table in use, so it was very quiet but afterwards the place became very busy. We had an excellent waiter -Shadrak that was very attentive and on the ball. The food is always... More

I pop in regularly to this branch despite having an OB literally around the corner in my own suburb. There is a reason for this - the staff. They remember my order, are cheerful even if rushed and overworked and I feel like family, not simply a customer. However, it pains me to watch how other patrons treat the waiters... More

I'm a huge fan of Ocean basket and whenever we are in Cape Town once a year, then I want to go there as often as possible. I've been to several locations but this one is a particularly nice one. Location wise because the terrace is airy and spacious, yet shady, but also yue quality of the meal was particularly... More

We were a group of 5 people coming for lunch and we really enjoyed our meal. I have often been to this and other restaurants in the Lifestyle centre and as a parent I really value the provided play area.

Last night of my holiday to Cape Town we go to Ocean basket for sushi. We were three adults and two kids. There is a huge playground for kids so that they aren't bored. The children's meal was very generous and the sushi was amazing. Totally blown away by how great the food was. The service was absolutely outstanding. Our... More
