The Sea Point branch of Ocean Basket is well frequented by (local) older and family seafood diners who know what they like and don't wish to be disappointed! It is a welcoming place,with friendly and attentive staff. The manager works hard, ensuring that he chats to customers, helps clear tables, and interacts well with his staff. We order grilled fish, sauces served separately, and vegetables/ salad. Prices don't need to be expensive if you don't order huge 'combos' and as we arrive early (before 6:15pm), have our pick of table. The wine list has a selection of very palatable samples; I enjoy a glass of Boschendal Blanc de Blanc which is a light accompaniment to Kingklip.

we knew the Ocean Basket from Takeaways we bought there before, but never had lunch or dinner in the restaurant. We were very surprised about the friendly staff, the high quality of the meals and the excellent price.

The sea food in Cape Town is awersome, so competiton is high. This place serves good food with average service, worth it if you are in the mood for that type of thing

We dined at the Ocean Basket at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in Sea Point area of Cape Town. It was delightful. The food was delicious-recommend the fish and chips with butternut squash and (creamed) spinach and the calamari. Prices are ridiculously reasonable for what you get. Total bill for 5, including 4 drinks and 2 bottles of wine and tip, was $700 Rand or about $79. Restaurant is located at the back of large mall. We sat outdoors with view of water. Service was excellent. Tip of 10% was added to bill and we included an additional amount. Highly recommend if ever in Cape Town area.
