My family and I always love to go to Ocean basket so when my hubby and I was in Jonkershoek, we decided to have a meal at Ocean basket in Stellenbosch one evening. We were really NOT impressed with the quality of the food. I am sorry but I cannot write a positive review. It actually felt like there was... More

A seafood restaurant that you can always rely on for good food. In our group we shared a large sushi platter as well as a large seafood platter and everything was nice and fresh. The waiter was also very friendly and helpful. They have a nice big play area for the kids so parents can also enjoy a relaxed evening... More

My family and I went out to eat after taking the kids out for some fun. It was a scorching hot day, so it was lovely to come into a well cooled restaurant. IT was lovely. We received rolls on our table. Nothing fancy- tasted like Pick n Pays rolls. My food was cold. But other than that, the food... More

This is a go-to place for fresh seafood. The ambience is always relaxed and welcoming and service efficient! For me, the best fish and chips! Centrally located in town, it is convenient and well worth a visit.

I ate at Ocean Basket a few minutes ago, and what bothered me was the warmth inside on a summer day. I think a few fans or an airconditioner might help. I was happy with my fish and calamari and the service was good.

Another branch of high quality cheap seafood that is up to standard compared to the other ocean baskets. Better service than usual and the university student discount really makes it value for money. A must visit if you are a fan of ocean basket.

The worse service ever! We always eat at canal walk and waterfront order the same calamari 3 ways grilled . They give us 3 different types of calamari and grill it. Come here, 4 waiters PLUS the manager argues with us saying that's not how they make it after I've said but how come the others branches make it like... More
