After waiting for more than a hour for our food we left. If one enters a restaurant at 6:30 in the evening and orders a very simple off-menu item, a platter to share and then watches people walk in after you, eat 3 courses and pay and leave then I think that you are entitled to be very upset. We will not be putting ourselves through this trauma again and will in fact give the whole franchise a wide berth. The whole point in this type of establishment is no frills simple food and fast service?!

As locals of Stellenbosch we thought we should probably try the new Ocean Basket in Town.
It was a Friday evening and crowded to start with, The lay out of the restaurant is a long line of tables and the sound of the place eco's. There is NO atmosphere. As we chose our table the waiter of that section said to the hostess, no I have to go now, I can't take another table. We sat anyway ant just thought we will get another waiter. In the end the girl served us, but she talked really fast and was rushing us. My boyfriend was irritated by now. The girl called him "uncle" "oom in Afrikaans" and after the 3rd time - that was it! He is 28 years old and not a uncle! We drank our glass of wine and left. We did not feel welcome and did not want to spend any money here just to be put of for disappointment. We went to Genki instead and it was a fantastic experience!

If you are looking for a quick basic & cheap meal, you cannot go wrong with the fried hake and chips (<R40-00!). A new addition is the option of substituting the chips/rice with veg (butternut & spinach) for an additional R5 pp. Yum! More expensive options on the menu has disappointed before (use of cheap margarine in stead of butter as per menu).
