A busy place for what I call fast food with bad service.As the name suggests it serves sea food.A rather huge menu.There are therefore many choices.The simpler,the better.

We went to Ocean Basket on the recommendation of someone who had visited Capetown a few months before. It was a great recommendation. The food was excellent and huge portions. The Sangria was delicious. And the prices were very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

Chanced upon this on first day of visit and popped in for a quick bite. Food was enormous for a single pax and relatively inexpensive but still fresh. Freindly on the wallet so why not

good seafood at a reasonable price but it was really busy probably because of the location and lunch time rush so take that into consideration when planning a visit
