Potch doesn't offer much on a Sunday evening, which is the reason we were there. But as usual, we've been disappointed. Poor service, no background music and boring food.

Had lunch at this restaurant, it was a mild winters day, and sitting outside in the sun was really nice. My wife had the "Pick of the Ocean", this is a small platter for one consisting of prawns, calamari and fish with chips and rice, very filling. I had the Famous fish, a lighter meal as I am not a...

One of my favourite chains. You can always rely on good food at reasonable prices. Yesterday was no exception. Prompt and efficient service was the order of the day and food delicious.. We visit this restaurant quite often and really can recommend it!

My wife and i visited Ocean Basket for our first date night in a long time. The Salmon Salad still the best on the menu and a definite try for everyone. One dissapointment was that the Sushi rice were tastless and the texture were home made. otherwise a great vissit..

I had a platter with prawn, calamari and hake. The fried calamari was perfectly cooked and the tasty hake was the best I ever ate at any Ocean Basket. That says a lot! I'm impressed. Restaurant situated in the area of the University campus with a nice vibe.

There are no gourmet restaurants in Potchefstroom as they do not make money in this student city. But if you want quality and realiability you can go to some of the chains in town. The food is fresh and well-madeand value for money..most of them are family rseaturants and this is one. Winelist is average.

One of my favourite chains. You can always rely on good food at reasonable prices. Last night was no exception. Perfectly prepared kingklip with spinach and butternut, a lovely light white wine and a good cappucino to finish with. It all adds up to very enjoyable meal that does not make your wallet cringe in pain!

The calamari, fish and sushi are always very good at Ocean Basket. You can never go wrong here if you want value for your money. We had a very friendly and helpful waiter. The cheesecake was supurb!!
