“Seafood and eat”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Ocean basket is a franchise, but this particular branch is run very well, with excellent quality food and good service. I have eaten here on numerous occasions, and always had a good experience.

“Nice Setting”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a very nice ocean basket. There are nice trees outside and it is very shady, makiing it very cool and pleasant to eat your meal.

The food is just average, the prawns are average, the calamari and the line fish were also average. Port alfred really needs a good seafood restaurant and this gets close but not great seafood.

There are fresh oysters which are great.

“Great food and excellent service.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Looking for somewhere for a New Year's day lunch, our family recommended Ocean Basket down by the river. We'd hoped to get a waterfront table so they said to get their early. Early lunch to us is usually around 1:30 but we took their advice at arrived just before midday. The outside terrace was full and the inside was packed already. I think we must've got the last table - even at that early hour. Being inside didn't matter as the day was dismal. We ordered king prawns and calamares with a bottle of Graca (cheapskates on the wine, I know!). Coffee and a very nice KKV brandy afterwards - no pud. Our waiter, Edmund, took very good care of us and the food was delicious - perfectly cooked prawns and crisy battered calamares and chips, all served in one big pan. It was a great way to start the New Year - obviously it was very much a family day - so the whole place was buzzing. I think our bill was around 250 rand..my husband had calculated at about 25 euros. Excellent value.
