Great food!

I had a few hours to spend between arriving at the airport and leaving for another town and chanced upon Ocean Basket. I was promptly seated by a friendly waiter named Proud Leo ( his name is actually Proud Leonard but that is too long for the nameplate) and quickly brought a refreshing beer. I... read more

We were seated and service was good. The food came in good time in spite of the restaurant being busy. The food was well presented and warm, the portions were manageable We looked around and the rest of the clients were all chatting and enjoying their food. An all round enjoyable experience leaving us looking forward to a return visit.

Most Ocean basket outlets serve best seafood and good value for money, however here at the ORT airport, portions are smaller and food is not as appetising!!

We visited the Ocean Basket Restaurant at O. R. Tambo International Airport on 12 December 2015 for breakfast as we had an early morning flight. It was not very busy that early in the morning, so it was easy to get a table for four. We ordered their special breakfast, that they mainly serve to airport staff. It consisted of... More
