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.

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

We ordered seafood platter and oyster, but oyster taste and quality was disappointing. Oyster quality was far below than buffet-style oyster served in breakfast of Victoria&Alfred hotel at Capetown(if you have been there). Other seafood platter menu was okay. Overall it was just nice seafood.

Ocean Basket is always a wonderful restaurant to visit, and it is even more wonderful when you can look out over the water front. You have the pleasure boots come in and go out. The food taste even nicer and with the friendly staff it makes your visit even more pleasant.
