Very good food i recommend, the location and parking also is good. The staff i think they should take be more flexible, they served us, after that nobody came, to order extra drinks, sauces, and the desert menu, she only asked the first time bringed the order and went, and the restaurant was so crowded.

Franchise so no real surprises. Average service. Food is always good. Nice verandah but can get noisy from traffic.

The food and service at the Ocean Basket was great. The restaurant definitely lived up to its franchise obligations and we were very happy with our meal.

The food was not the best. Chips were stale and fish poor quality. Won't be back. Very disappointed. The manager pays no attention to the customers so why bother to be there

Good Location, When I go to ocean basket. Most of the time we order a seafood platter for 1 or 2. They have a good combination of seafood on the platter, their prawns and calamari is devine with lemon butter sauce. Overall a good experience

Having just moved to this area and as Ocean Basket is one of our overseas family's favourites, we tried this branch before they returned home. We found it to be very vibey, friendly, helpful staff and delicious food. We will definitely be going again.

I am not usually a fan of franchise restaurants as the food & taste always tastes fakish however Ocean Basket Nelspruit has great seafood, especially the calamari... Great value for money and great service. The sushi however lacks in quality sector and will not recommend it. No facility for change children at all!

We had a great meal here, when we came out of the Kruger National Park. After fare in the park for 11 nights, the food at this restaurant was heavenly! Accompanied by cold wine and beer, we couldn't fault it or the service we got.
