We arrived as two families each with two boys aged 4 to 10, so it was really hard to keep them under control, The staff were very helpful and tried very hard to keep them occupied.

An excellent array of all the seafoods that this chain is famous for, beautifully prepared and presented with many smiles. This is a standard in UMhlanga and worth every cent spent.

Service, quality and value for money. A franchise that never waivers from "who" they are. Set in a tranquil, yet fashionable part of Umhlanga. The "stand apart" here were the friendly and attentive waiters. Excellent!

The food at Ocean basket in Umhlanga Rocks is good but the guy serving us always seemed to get lost and we had to call others to place an order or make a request for anything.

My second visit this holiday. A warm - welcome back again - was the cheery greeting. The service was too fast!! No sooner had the bread roll and butter been delivered, the main course arrived! I should have asked for a breather, but the food looked so great - why wait. Fortunately the chosen wine had already arrived! Ever since... More

While on holiday my husband and I had a late breakfast then spent a good portion of the day shopping and did not have lunch. We decided to walk to Ocean Basket from our resort for a late lunch, early supper. We sat on the deck outside which was pleasant. The menu has many options and when hungry makes it... More
