We went for dinner and we enjoyed our platter for two which was well prepared. A good house wine too. Service a little slow but that was to be expected as the restaurant was quite busy. We enjoyed our desserts as well.

This was such an great meal. A relaxed and very clean restaurant. Happy waitress and good food. Really such an awesome family meal. Fish, calamari, salads, prawns and kiddo meals all really good.

This Ocean Basket has been one of the best I've ever been to. Excellent service, delicious food and it has been very nice to sit on the veranda.

There are few restaurants in South Africa that can compare to the service you guys offer and deliver each and every time! Your ambiance, your attention to detail and delicious food is worth raving about!! Thank you and trust me you will see us again!!

Worst service ever!!! Food o.k., but with a waiter almost spitting on you, because we wanted to finish our wine and our credit card to accepted, although it worked in all other restaurants and places, we can definetly not advice that place! Go to Reef and Dunes or Barraca, which are the better choice!

A nice location, especially as the sun is setting. Our waitress was very accommodating and food was good. I love fish but my daughter doesn't. She was able to order steak from the Braza menu. A good value for food and drink.

My wife had Kingklip and Prawns and I had the Kingklip and Camlamari. Both portions of Kingklip was the 300g, very tasty and enjoyed it all. The place is clean and has a nice outdoor area overlooking the main street. Unfortunately the main course was so substantial that we didn't try the very tempting dessert menu. Really enjoyed the meal

They had a vegetarian sushi platter and a great Greek salad. Good location in the center of town with an outdoor patio overlooking the main street.
