“Situated ok but only street view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Good food. Very busy at the time we visited. Waiters were attentative, our waiter was over-zealous, spilling our wine on two occasions when pouring into our glasses. Otherwise, a nice casual experience.

The bathrooms were absolutely terrible, the food was average after having waited for 30 minutes after the order to get our meal.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Not the same standard as other Ocean Baskets in the franchise. Prawns were burnt and dry, rice was undercooked, beer was warm, waiter was insensitive to requests..... would not recommend

“Seafood and service excellence.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Ocean Basket Umhlanga is an eating, drinking, talking, laughing kind of restaurant where the families and friends can congregate to enjoy delicious seafood. The kiddies are catered for, and the service is exceptionally quick, even when the restaurant is full to capacity. This is very important when families have hungry children!

The restaurant recently underwent a revamp resulting in a sleeker, up to date look. The seafood platters are really worthwhile and the staff are most accommodating - if you don't want a certain item they will swop it out with another if possible. The food and wine prices are really easy on the wallet.
