We arrived here for dinner at a busy time and had to queue. However, we were seated after a wait of only 5-6 minutes. The menu is extensive and very reasonably priced. We eventually settled on a combo of grilled kingklip and prawns, which the menu (helpfully and as it turned out accurately) indicated would require a wait of 20-25... More

Even though it was a busy time, the service was excellent. The salmon was so fresh it melted like butter in your mouth. Attention was paid to a special request I had for uncooked veggies and both the chef and manager took time to make sure our order was perfect

One of the great things about South Africa is the accessibility of fresh, delicious, and value-priced seafood. Ocean Basket has high quality food at affordable prices. Make it a point to try local varieties that you may not hear much of outsdie this part of the world, like the King Klip fish, a white fleshy fish without a fishy taste.

We ordered the family platter. The prawns and fish were dry and overcooked. The calamari was not particularly tasty. The desert of mud pie was very hard for a mousse and in the kahlua don Pedro they had used ice cream that had been defrosted and refrozen as there were bits of ice in it.
