The fish at this restaurant is always good. It is a no frills restaurant with decent service. If you enjoy sea food at a competitive price then give it a try. Their basic hake and chips is recommended.

This restaurant must have one of the best views of any restaurant. However having eaten there a few times, I am not very impressed with the food and service. The last time I ordered fried hake and got grilled hake. The fish is not always attractively prepared (sometimes soggy and not crispy), but most other dishes look good. Will still... More

This is a large, relatively inexpensive chain which specializes in seafood. The service is friendly but relatively poor. The food is good.

As always, you can't get better value for money seafood than at Ocean Basket. The Staff was great and the view overlooking the ocean was spectacular.

My wife and I visited the Ocean Basket twice during out recent stay in Hermanus. As usual it was just great - we've been there many times over the years during our trips to South Africa. We went both times at about 7pm, and although we hadn't booked we were extremely lucky to get the same table, upstairs in window... More

Having been a regular customer to Ocean Basket for many years I am extremely disappointed with how the standard of food and service has deteriorated. The place was about a quarter full. After being shown to our table we had a distinct feeling we were in the way. After 10 minutes we were given Menus and we ordered drinks. 10... More

Always a very favorite spot for many many years. My mother warned me but I had to try for my self again. Waiter could not get away from our table fast enough and was not paying attention to the order hence the wrong food. Very sad as this place was always a go too. Just plain terrible.
