We got recommended the restaurant and we find have good vibes, we decided to give a chance. The server was very good and attentive, however the food was just ok, was not hot when was brought to the table ( quite fast came out) and the presentation is slightly different then the one presented on the menu.

Had a relaxing tasty family meal. Love the open air concept of the restaurant. Enough variety to please young and old. Was really great to be able to have a conversation without having to worry that we were disturbing other patrons. Thank you Faith for being so pleasant 😃😃😃😃

Very little can be added to the reputation of an established chain of fish eateries so beloved of the south African public, who is able to provide affordable fish and seafood choices to a wide range of clientele. Predictable and tasty are the watch-words for Ocean Basket...

Very high quality Sushi groups one can find here. Efficient service. Prices are acceptable considering the quality. Good atmosphere and great attention by the manager/supervisor.

We ordered Prawn & fish, which was served with small portion of rice & french fry / salad and Calamari fish as top-up. The service was attentive and... More

We went for lunch and were utterly disappoìnted firstly by the freezing cold restaurant. We asked but were told the gas heaters were only put on in the evenings. The bread basket arrived with one butter to share. The meal was standard. It was so cold inside we couldnt wait to get finished. Then the bill came with no sweets.... More

The fresh oysters were our favourite, prawns were over cooked and bit dry though, we also enjoyed the sushi. Service was decent but somewhat slow. Overall a good place and decent value for a seafood dinner.

Visited for supper. Food was fresh and tasty. Service was prompt and quick. Good value for money and generous portions. Recommend the mussels and platter for 2. Lots of kids options for fussy eaters. Sushi was great as well. Very fresh and tasty
