Yummy seafood

The sushi is always nice and fresh. When Casey is there you get more than good service. We love the prawns. It is also nice that you are able to order from Mimmos and Nandos as an alternative, as our friend does not like seafood.

We had the seafood plaster for two, the prawns and the calamari we ordered grilled and it was really delicious, also we ordered it with vegetables and that was also a winner.

Had a dinner here and eat shrimps which is my favourite. I asked for garlic butter, but they gave me the ordinary garlic sause. Taste was ok, but the shrimps were overcooked. The service was avreagera. Not a place you bring your girlfriend, but ok if you only want something to eat

Popular seafood restaurant. We've eaten here several times over the years. Always enjoyed it and wanted to return, but the last time, we thought the food was not as good as usual. Maybe we were just tired. (Jetlagged) They always seem to have a crowd, so most people must think its good.

The food was at the normal Ocean Basket standard but the service was very poor. Most of the time we had to look around and call the waitress to get her attention to get some service. It can also be very noisy due to the number of people eating in the vicinity but that would be the same for all... More

Good food, excellent service but very loud, if you dine inside. With the weather though outside is always an option and much more pleasant.

Our first night in Johannesburg we were a bit of a loss for what to do for our evening meal. We chose the Ocean Basket. The food was okay but definitely not a fresh sea food restaurant which is understandable being hours from the sea. The meal was delivered well and staff was very polite, price was acceptable and everyone... More

I'm not a big fan of seafood in general but I love the South African standard of fried Hake & Chips and wow, Ocean Basket knows how to get it right! And at R49 at the time of writing, their Hake & Chips is unbelievable value for money. My Hake & Chips arrived in the usual 'Pan' presentation which I... More

Being spoilt for choices in the food arena next to the casino we opted for fish, partly because it was mid afternoon after a long flight from London and it seemed a little early for steaks. It turned out to be a good choice with cheerful service, great prices and pleasurable food. The service can make all the difference and... More

Whilst the service was a bit slow, the food was very well priced and tasted wonderful. Prawns were a specialty, though the fish was also great. Happy to go back on a second visit - so I guess it means we liked our first experience!!
