We went here for dinner with the family the food was great service excellent and if it wasn't so cold I'm sure the ocean view would have been amazing too! One of the best ocean baskets in Durban 😁

We usually have a seafood platter for 2 which more than ample. Normally very busy and sometimes the wait for your food to arrive may take a bit longer than usual. It's always worth the wait though. Good value.

On the final evening of our holiday we opted to visit the Ocean Basket... even the many stairs upward did not deter our lady friend with a disability. We were graciously and timeously greeted at the door and the service was excellent from that moment....More

The seafood was tasty and very affordable. Seafood didn't seem very fresh though. Service was exceptional and the balcony was great a refreshing wind blew through.

We went to the centre to find the old King Prawn restaurant that used to be there, but only found the Ocean basket. The fish and sushi were good.

Last time I visited was at the old location and this new spot certainly seems to have made a difference...airy, nice view of Umhlanga and sea views in keeping with seafood... Tried the platter with stir-fry and spinach as a side. The prawns were great...More

Food was OK and the service fairly prompt. Since I have to write more I will say that there are better choices in UmH.
