Lovely view from a double-level restaurant specially at times when whales visit Walker Bay.
Fish platters very fresh and good variety. Ideal for family outings, day or night.
As local pensioners, our most frequented restaurant in town.

I came to have a quick lunch on Saturday 20/10/2012 at Ocean Basket Hermanus and to my dismay with my families did not want to spoil the day's event by complaining at the branch, but my personal opinion was that the hake was not very nice and had alot of bones in itm which made me leave the place unpleasant and still hungry because i could not continue my meal. On top of it, i wanted to share with my kids and was hoping to have fish with no bones, but to my dismay this was unpleasant and there was nothing to keep the kids busy, so how can you call this a family restaurant.

You know what you are getting in this restaurant - value, quality and fantastic views over Walker Bay! Staff were very friendly and helpful. We both had Kingklip which was absolutely delicious. The icing on the cake was watching a whale breach as we ate our meal. Fantastic!!

Just like all other branches except very cold on October evening. When will Hermanus restaurants and hotels realise their winter/spring whale watchers market need warmth?
