My faith in this restaurant chain was restored at Ocean Ocean Basket, Bethlehem. Prompt service, decent portions of food and the unmistakable taste of fresh, well prepared seafood made me come back for dinner the following night. A definite visit when I'm next in Bethlehem.

We always frequent this seafood restaurant because of the good service and good food. We had hake with rice and calamari steak. Both were great. A big no no or rather a joke we’re the two minute rock hard Makazi buns. It’s not worth it to serve such a thing that was impossible to cut. This is a prime example of NO value. I remember the good value days when you got a nice Portugese roll that was soft and delicious. It’s a matter of getting less value and rubbish for your money. Rather serve no buns

While the food is nice at this ocean basket, the new management is not doing a good job. There was alot of things wrong with our table: 1. We had to ask for cutlery 2. We had to ask for serviettes 3. My pan came without a wooden board 4. There was no side plates to put our stuff that we finish ate Its very pricey to eat at OB so one expects faultless Service. Please improve.

Being a lone traveller on business its sometimes uncomfortable going into a restaurant, but everyone made me very welcome here. The food was fresh, well presented and great value for money and the venue was not too far from my accommodation.

The Ocean Basket in Bethlehem has long been considered one of the best OB brances in the country and has recieved many “Best Restaurant Awards” Although the menu is determined by the Francise, a few off menu specials are available. Service is very good with the owner almost always present to keep an eye. While the food is standard it is fresh, hot and straight out of the kithen. Ocean basket is a go-to choice for many locals and a convenient option for travellers. Also conveniently located on the main route to Bloemfontein with ample parking available.

We recently had dinner at this Ocean basket. We all had the fish, calamari and prawns. The fish was excellent and very fresh and very well prepared. Calamari also good and the prawns soft and delicious. Excellent service and mouth watering desserts.
