We were lucky to get a last minute reservation here for about ten people during the festive period. Ocean Basket was not our first choice for a 60th birthday celebration, but all other restaurants were fully booked. Nonetheless we had a great time with exceptional food and service. I found the food tastier here than any other Ocean Basket franchise.... More

We arrive at the frontdoor, waiter welcomed us, the other staff did not even wincked. Sad. We were offered the menu, no specials was advertised or shared with us. We enjoyed the fresh food and service was quickly as we decided to eat early at 6h30pm. Our table was way too full of empty softdrink and sushi and soy sauce... More

Great value and fresh food at reasonable prices including the wine. Close to all Hotels along the main road and other Restaurants in the Village. The staff are friendly and do not crowd you.

Although we love the Ocean Basket, I was very impressed with the Umhlanga Rocks restaurant. Our drinks came within minutes and we were served by a very efficient waiter. Our food, which did not take long, was delicious. All in all, a lovely evening and as it is a family tradition to eat at the Ocean Basket for our birthdays,... More

We were seated very promptly and presented with menus immediately with the waiter taking our drinks order at the same time. The waiter was simply great and was always "around" to top up our drinks are bring sauces to try. I ordered the calamari and kingklip, and it was by far the best seafood I've had in South Africa (so... More
