I also like that they have a more "grown up" kiddies menu that offers children options like sushi etc. We have been going for many years as its an affordable family... read more

This is my favourite Fish Restaraunt. I have enjoyed some great meals and always great SERVICE. One of my favourites is KINGKLIP. The last few times it ha been delicious. This week, for a change, I tried the Curried Fish Dish. Well,the chips and all the trimings were up to the usual high standard, BUT, THE CURRIED FISH WAS "TERRIBLE".... More

Having heard so much about Ocean Basket in London, we decided to give it a try while on holiday in SA. We were blown away by the great food and service. Would recommend it to everyone.

The Ocean Basket is my wife best place to going when out shopping in Vincent as she doesn't eat meat and is Gluten free. It is always good service and the meals cover a good range of taste. But I always end up having Fish and Chips, I just like them so much.

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
