Attentive waiters didn't even write down menu selection but made no errors. Nice seating outside. Variety of fish dishes. Chain restaurant.

The great thing about a chain is you know what you will get, and Ocean Basket Hatfield served up good seafood, just as expected

You can always rely on Ocean Basket for good old fashion seafood - themed meals. The menu is accommodative of most preferences, when it comes to seafood preparation, i.e. you can have your fish fried, grilled or Cajun style. What I like is that they always offer you a choice of either one side or a half portion of two... More

arriving back from the Conference quite late I went to Ocean Basket to have food. It is next to the Protea hotel. Service and food were excellent, but again the bother. of going from the restaurant to the Hotel, was marred by people begging and being very much in "my space'- not pleasant a all.

I honestly haven't had any bad experience with the Ocean's Baskets that I have been to so far. I usually eat at Ocean's Baskets whenever I visit a new town and not very sure where to eat from and because I love seafood and am familiar with the franchise menu. I bought some sushi at Ocean's Basket Hatfield as takeaway... More

Some of the dishes like the garlic bread differed from my experience at other Ocean Baskets. Was a little annoyed by the constant and rather pushy beggar at the tables near the roadside. Main dish was really good and worthy of praise. No manager doing rounds though. but service was satisfactory.

I had no transportation and this was within walking distance of my hotel. Hearing that it was a chain from one of our party I was fully prepared for over-breaded, fried seafood of questionable quality. I was more than pleasantly surprised to see lots of options on the menu and to get great grilled seafood at a very reasonable price.... More

We used the Gautrain from Sandton to Hatfield station which is nearby and saw that there was an Ocean Basket. Knowing that you can’t go wrong we visited for lunch. We were pleased that the standard seems to be good throughout the chain of restaurant and the seafood of very good quality. The calamari tubes and heads were delightfully crisp... More
