“Excellent value, views and of course seaffod.”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

This restaurant is sea facing with excellent views over Walker Bay and Hermanus. From July the sea is frequented with lots of Souther Right Whales. The seafood is real value for money and their deserts and wine list are good too. Where in the world would you get fish and chips for just over 3 pounds?? The prawns are to die for!! Do go early in the evening to get a good table. The staff are friendly and very efficient too.

“Food is well prepared at affordable prices - but beware of credit card cloning”
Reviewed March 14, 2011

Have already eaten here several times , the menu is varied (if you like fish) , I found the presentation attractive and I enjoyed the humourous displays on the walls . Also had very pleasant & attentive service .
I feel I need to warn other customers of using their credit card here. I have very good evidence that my credit card was cloned in this restaurant , as it was the only place I used it in South Africa before cash was withdrawn the following day from an ATM in South Africa with that credit card number.

“Fair quality sea-food at outstanding price”
Reviewed September 7, 2010

Ocean Basket is located in town center of Hermanus, just 100m from the famous sea-front and cliffs. The restaurant mainly offers south-african sea-food (kingklip, linefish, sole, calamari..) in a variety of combinations; and you can also taste south-afrian wine by the glass at a small price. Staff is friendly and kids are really welcome; dishes are really large and price/quality ratio is quite outstanding. The only bad point I have seen is that restaurant room is pretty noisy.

“Great quality for price! A "must-eat" location!”
Reviewed November 19, 2009

We were here with a group of friends on a tour; it was quite cold in wintertime, but just when we entered the door, the inner atmosphere of the restaurant, charming but easy looking, made us feel comfortable.
All of us tried different PLATTERS, ranging from 88 to 229 rands, and they were gorgeous! Every single fish or prawn, king prawn, squid, cuttle fish or mussel was so fresh and tasted so good...GREAT! Moreover, if you consider that we were completely satisfied, drinking very good white wine, having fine desserts (Amarula and sticky toffee), for just 15 to 20 euros per person, that is quite astonishing!!

I underline that Ocean Basket proudly subscribes to the guidelines laid out by SASSI (South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative) in an effort to aide in the sustainability of seafood and the marine environment.
