“If you like seafood, this is the place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Three friends went to dinner. We were staying at Swakopmund for 3 nights and chose to come to Ocean Basket as we are seafood lovers from Australia. This is a family focused restaurant, not for romancing couples however, the menu was very extensive with a wide range of options on the seafood! We had a platter with 2 crayfish, prawns calamari, mussels and chips and garlic butter sauce with a glass of white wine! Delicious

“Excellent seafood and sushi - at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We went there two couples and had some of the mixed platter plus some sushi... amazing seafood - at a really good price. We were almost rolling when we left the place.

The desserts were great as well - my girlfriend had never tasted sticky toffee pudding before and was completely taken by it.

The place is part of a seafood restaurant chain so is not a place I would go on a date - but it is definitely a great place to go with some friends or with family.

“Frozen Sea food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Where does one get frozen oysters as fresh oysters?? That’s all I’m asking, one can’t give frozen oysters as fresh ones. Other than that not a too bad place.

“Kids Playarea outside AWEFULL”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you have Kids - don't go there. The jumping castle is dirty and the kids will return with more saws and sand than if you go to the beach. The service was up to standard, but the food was OK. We moved inside, after the wind started up and then inside was crammy and the kids didn't like it.

“safe but average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I you are wanting a safe seafood dinner, this place is fine. Part of a South African chain, as other reviewers have mentioned, and probably identical menus throughout the subcontinent. Prawns, calamari and linefish in almost every combination, pleasingly served in a fry pan. Reasonable prices, but if you want crayfish it can go up to US$30 or more. Good service, not exciting but nothing to complain about. Can nearly always get a place when the fancy restaurants are booked out. Used to be sited on the seafront at the lamented demolished Strand Hotel, now on a corner at the back end of town.
