I'm one of those people who hate malls....so it is standard practice that when we visit the mall, in order for family peace, to split up. I frequent Exclusive Books or Ocean Basket. At the latter I deal with mall phobia thanks to Jack Black on tap...and sushi. When the women are done shopping and want to test their weary... More

If you're in Cape Town and in the mood for seafood, try going to a local fish and chips joint, avoid Ocean Basket. But if you're inland, its not bad. Fish is often dry and calamari rubbery, but still a good meal and night out.

This is a great seafood spot in Cavendish Square. The prices are really good. Expect to pay R39 for Fish and Chips. Very good indeed. I recommend drinking a savanna dry with the fish as it has a lemon flavour which compliments seafood. We saw this restaurant on a site called capetownbest dot com under restaurant specials section.

I visited the Ocean basket restaurant in cavendish claremont today with my family. At face value this was a good idea. My wife and I enjoy the odd fried sea food and the girls love Sushi. The service was good from all staff. When the food arrived I tasted the food which was really fresh and juicy but it lacked... More

As good as I'd expected from others in this chain, but without the views from the waterfront branch. Four of us went for an early evening meal, and sat outside as inside is really noisy and some of us suffer from age-related hearing restriction. It was very busy, with many families eating there. We had a mixture of dishes -... More

Good seafood at a reasonable price. Service was good . We were with friends and we all enjoyed our meal. A nice stop if you are the waterfront.

My girls treated their Dad to a Sea Food platter for two which my wife and I basically demolished - my younger daughter had Sushi. Ocean Basket is my favourite Sea Food place and today we went to the Claremont store (Cavendish Connect) - only the second time I had gone there as the branch I normally go to had... More

Very good platters and choices available. Old faithful for us who don't think a burger is an option...
