This restaurant was recommended by a South African friend and it was a great recommendation! We were with a group of about 20 people. We did not have reservations but the staff was able to put tables together and seat us all together. They were also nice enough to figure separate checks for all us also. The food was so fresh and well prepared that we ended up eating at another Ocean Basket in Jo-burg because we liked it so well. The King-clip fish was delicious. I can't say enough about how friendly and accommodating the staff was.

This a great value for money ( with a few frills) chain restaurant. The service was great, the specials jumbo fish & chips with onion rings was superb value. R59 I think. I only visited the chain towards the end of my stay, otherwise I would have dined again.

After a long travel day from the states, we left our hotel and headed for the waterfront. Landed at Oceans Basket for dinner last night. Arrived about 6:30. With recommendation, we ordered Kingklip two ways. Grilled plain and with Cajun seasoning. We also ordered butternut and spinach. The spinach was not good. Previously frozen and mushy. Butternut was quite tasty. Cajun fish was good, other was plain.

Food was OK but we would not return.

Now, we were quite disturbed by the behavior of the male manager. If I had his name, I would place it in this review. He spoke horribly to the staff. So much so that we were offended. I could not stop staring at him. We did not intervene as we thought it might be the norm and did not want the staff to get in trouble after we were gone. Quite unfortunate. On the other hand, our server Priscilla was quite attentive.

Due to the lackluster food experience and inappropriate manager, we would not return nor recommend this location.

The outdoor location on the Waterfront was very nice, but the food was not that good. We tried a combination fish plate that was hard to distinguish one from the other. The French Fries were tasty.

The prawn curry is very good but it appears to be popular on Fridays, so go early or book. There isn't much difference between the hot and medium curry but the medium is tastier. The restaurant is situated close to the movies, so there is a lot of traffic and noise when you sit outside.
