Between flights from Cape Town to Harare, the Ocean Basket at O.R.Tambo was a nice stopover. It offers a large seating space and so we could keep an eye on our luggage. There were a few families with small children, working singles and socialising couples. We enjoyed my firm favourite of fish and chips served hot! Highly commended!

Not the same food as previously. Disappointed in the fish because it was full of bones and we could see it is not the same fish they served previously. We also had sangria the white wine but it was tasteless. We call the waiter and tell her that it taste like water with wine. She return with another one but... More

Typical noisy family seafood restaurant , serving prawn and fish combo meals , excellent desserts. Traditional fish & chips and all other fish meals served hot in a frying pan on a wooden board. Good value.

Tried this snack food outlet whilst waiting for a plane at Johannesburg airport. To my astonishment, they had on the menu the Brazilian drink Caipirinha. I had two and partner had two glasses of wine. We shared a prawn and avocado salad which was tasty and fresh. All up, R282.00. Exceptional value.

Had dinner here on 6 March. Dinner was the platter for one with fish and calamari followed by coffee. Service was quick, drinks were served within 10 minutes and food not long after. Our waiter was friendly, told us in detail about the specials and was very attentive. He actually thanked us for tipping him - *WOW*. Probably the first... More

We ordered a platter with sushimi and sushi rolls. I thought that the salmon sushimi did not smell or... More

Nice place to go before your flight or while waiting for someone. The staff is friendly, turn around time is quite fast. The food is rather average, but I guess it serves the purpose.
