Pleasant Meal under organised staff

During our December family holiday in East London we had a pleasant family meal in a very busy and noisy Ocean Basket Restaurant in Vincent. It was a pleasant experience, will return but maybe better when not as busy.

Coming from Australia we are used to huge prawns so did not order them after eating small dry ones at the Port Alfred OB. The fish was tasty, and the rest of the family seemed happy with their meals. The atmoshere was great, with decent service. This OB is popular, which was evident from the number of people inside in... More

The Ocean Basket in East London is a must for anyone visiting this beautiful, calm and relaxed city. Have eaten a number of times here with our family and each time surpassed the previous visit. On this visit we had the platters and lemonade. Simply awesome and filling. The atmosphere is great and the service rocks. Ian and team have... More

The best Seafood Restaurant in East London! It is located in Vincent Park Shopping Mall and there is safe parking close to the restaurant! Their service is excellent even during rush hour. But more importantly their seafood is outstanding. They also boast a 'Sushi Bar'! This Restaurant is perfect for any occasion!

At OB this is rarely at fault. However the new menu with the addition of one of my favourite fish, Kingklip, proved to be somewhat dissapointing. I decided to have the... More

The staff is well trained and friendly. The food is well prepared and always meets my expectations. Superbly situated in Vincent Park, where parking is secure and the parking fees are user friendly. My most favourite dish is the Solemate Platter!

Being a national chain, Ocean Basket has a standardized quality everywhere. It's not a bad thing though as the food is generally pretty good and well-priced. The casual atmosphere (although sometimes loud inside) lends itself to families with children.
