On every trip to durban we eat at this ocean basket and it never disappoints, but not this time round.

We were seated quickly and menus given. Out waiter took FOREVER to take down our order.
My daughter ordered the mini pizzas with prawn and halloumi as her starter. It was horrible!!!! The base wasn't done, it was completely soggy and just tasted terrible.

My husband ordered world famous fish and chips. That too was horrible. The fish was filled with bones!

I ordered prawns and fish. My prawns were extremely tough.
Not to mention that we waited over 45minutes for our order and the restaurant was not even busy.

We asked our waiter 3 times to bring crayons and coloring sheets for my daughter, but he just 'forgot '

I'm not sure if this was an off day for ocean basket, but for the prices they charge, this is highly unacceptable!!!!!!

Interesting seafront restaurant serving a nice platter to share of prawns, mussels, squid and other sea food fried with chips and rice. V good ice coolers too in this alcohol free establishment. Good meal, relaxed, not posh.
