I had been wanting to eat oysters but found them to be rather expensive else where (R30 each) so was thrilled when I saw the price was R13 an oyster. They were great. Also one of the few places where one can get calamari heads on a regular basis. Their food is consistently good and reasonably priced. You know exactly... More

The fish and prawns were excellent. The service was good, and the setting, especially the view, was so relaxing. But on a nice warm day, warm drinks are a no-no!

Some of the better service we've had in Knysna. Food was standard for a chain restaurant, no complaints there.

A great choice of fish dishes, something to suit everyone as long as you like fish/seafood! Friendly, fast service - and we loved the presentation of our food! Everything was well cooked and we loved all our choices. The heating above our outdoor table was great for enabling evening dining. Desserts were also excellent. All in all a very enjoyable... More

Went there for a meal and found the service to be excellent. Clean and tidy. Bennie the manager was very professional and the waiter was also very good, they made us feel as if we could come time and time again. We will definitely on our next trip make it our first stop to eat.

Despite eating at other more upmarket places, we rated this our favourite restaurant in Knysna. Delicious fish and such friendly service. We were there just after a long power cut and the staff did all they could to be helpful and keep customers happy. Very good value for money, too.

Generally the Ocean Baskets we have visited before serve tasty value for money meals and the service is normally quite good. This was our first time at this particular Ocean Basket however and we were very disappointed, the venue is pretty but the food and the service was not up to the usual Ocean Basket standard. The food was poor... More
