To have fish this far from the sea my seem rediculous. However, being my second visit I can confirm that their fish - we all had hake - are delicious. Whether grilled or fried in beer batter, it is a winner.

The food was good, It was fresh and clean tasting. Things were not covered in butter and batter like you so often find on your seafood platters at Ocean Basket. I would say this place ranks very similar to the Ocean Basket franchise - the sauces where more of a Portuguese style. The sushi was a little pricey in my... More

Walking into the restaurant, I thought it is just another seafood restaurant. The diversity of their seafood menu was very good and so was the service. Thumbs up for their seafood sauce! Perhaps influenced by the fact that it wasn't very busy, the turnaround time was excellent.

I recently visited The Famous Fishoek in Irene Village Mall and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent (apparently the restaurant is under new management) and our waiter was charming. The sushi was also great. They have a special- half price sushi between 12h00 and 17h00. Great value for your money. Will definitely visit again.

One a recent trip to Irene Mall we decided to try out this new restaurant. They have an impressive menu and their prices are value for money. Then things started to go wrong. Our waitress seemed to be new and did not know the menu very well, she could also not speak English very well. We placed our orders and... More

I've visited Fishoek in Irene a few times since they opened. The seafood is good, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere lovely. On our last visit I had a combo (line fish + calamari) that was quite good, but not really that much better than I would expect at most restaurants (bearing in mind they're a seafood specialist). Our... More
