We visited a couple of these restaurants in SA. If you like seafood fried, grilled. sauteed, whatever, go to these places. Excellent value for money and good food.

Having been here a few times, it was once again a great place for a value for money meal for a large group. Not your top nosh place but you get what you pay for and our meal, drinks and the overall service was good.

Rather going to say it in short as it really was a horrible experience! Will never go to any Ocean Basket ever again! The sushi wasn't tempura prawn (they tried to convince me that its a light batter that you can't even see it), bottomline the prawn in the tempura prawn sushi wasn't cooked. It made me angry that they tried to convince me otherwise. The food took more than 45min and to top it off I got my main after a hour and still waited for my last starter which was bad too. Don't waste your money to eat there! Also when did it become acceptable to undermine a customer by telling them poor service and food is acceptable. Won't see me again. Dining out with friends and family is suppose to be a good experience, you made it a terrible experience. One would also think that it is situated in a high tourist environment that quality and service would be present. Disgusting

Nice restaurant.
Good views of the harbor.
Staff nice and friendly, but where did it end.
The food, a seafood plate for two, was very dull, dry and boring fish and shrimp.
Would not recommend a visit.
