There were more staff than customers but it took an incredible length of time to be served. Food, when it came, was good apart from the oysters which weren't a patch on those in 34 South.

As we traveled throughout South Africa we often chose the Ocean Basket for lunch. In Knysna we found the service to be excellent and the manager and servers very customer focused. The owners and managers of this chain of restaurants needs to be congratulated for consistency in the quality of the food ( excellent sea food and sushi) - and you don't take chances with sushi!!!
The staff are great and extremely helpful re WiFi set up so you can do your email on the road. If you need a great place for lunch as you travel in South Africa, this is the place to find.

We were served with dried up and tasteless fish. When we complained to the manager he explained why (oil at wrong temperature) but refused to give us our money back. Even said that owner had refused to make refund and the young girl waitress would have to pay any refund from her own pocket. Avoid this terrible restaurant.

Today we went to the Ocean basket at mid afternoon and ordered a sushi platter. There were only 5 tables occupied, and it took 1 hr and 15 min to get our food. The apologized 3 times before it eventually can, and the reason was they were busy!!!! 5 tables? Hate to know what it's like when they busy. The sushi was also not at all up to standard, definitely no sushi chef there. The one waiter said they are doing take always first!
