“If you love seafood - this is the place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Ocean's Basket made for an incredible dining experience. The seafood platter for one (100 rand) is a steal - huge, tasty portions of fish, prawns, calamari and calamari heads, mussels, along with chips or chips/rice. Ample wine pairings available. I ate at OB's in Capetown too - but the Hermanus branch is still the best. Lively ambience. Highly recommended!

“Great Fish 'n "Chirps"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Lovely friendly atmosphere with helpful and chatty waiters. Their Sushi was great and the Fish and chips tasty and fresh. Lovely family restaurant or a great place to meet friends and share a meal. Reasonably priced as well.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Not to the usual standard for this chain. Fish was quite oily and tasteless. Service was fine but somewhat indifferent.

“Great family fun with a unique Hermanus feel though it is a popular franchise restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Have been here a couple of times and we've never been disappointed. Grrat seafood, spectacular views and a good staff. Perfect for a family outing.
