Great Value and Service

You are always made welcome here. The food is good value and the grilled calamari is excellent. They have a good children's menu and this is a perfect outing for family. The service is good and they work around load shedding to make your meal an enjoyable experience.

One just keeps going back to this place because the service is so quick, the seafood is always great and the staff so friendly, plus it is really affordable seafood. Today we had the seafood platter for two - great value at R219.00, with calamari tubes, mussels in the shells, prawns, and hake served with chips or rice and their... More

We had two meals here & both were very good. Freshly made Sushi to order, delicious queen size prawns & kingklip a most delicious South African fish. Roy served us both times - very friendly. A great meal at reasonable prices. One visit had free Wifi & the next visit it was down.

If you dont want to research or experiment with a unknown restaurant... This is the place to go to. Fresh fish, tasty prawns... family friendly. Not the 5* cuisine one is looking for but it works.

The restaurant is conveniently situated away from the main hustle and bustle of Umhlanga Rocks. There is also plenty of parking available. We were warmly welcomed at the door and told that they no longer have a smoking area... More

This time I decided to order the fish of the day, which the waiter told me was Dorado. Dorado is an amazing eating fish and is... More

This was my first visit to this particular Ocean Basket and it wasn't up to standard. Eight of us were there for dinner.. Half of us wanted line fish - they had run out. As an alternative we asked for kingklip. Only as they were they were starting to bring the food for the rest of the group did they... More
