Reviewed 16 April 2024

On holiday in South Africa from the UK and was keen to visit an Ocean Basket as we only have 2 in the UK. We had a lovely meal and the service during the meal was good until we came to pay. We left a...tip but then the waitress returned to our table and complained about the amount we had given her and it should have been more, although there is nothing to state how much we should give. When she would not accept this we had to speak to the manager. Although we received an apology from him it made us feel very uncomfortable and half our party, who live locally, will not return.More

The food was delicious, creamy, garlicky. The seafood was well cooked. We did enjoy and finish a platter for two between my husband and I. Our waiter was a delight, young with a spring in his step. Everything was delivered speedily. My only gripe was...the desert, I expected ice-cream and was given a cup full of cream. Either then that it was fantastic.More

Enjoyed the Grilled King Clip with stir fried vegetables. Service was good. We informed the restaurant that we wanted the fish all well done to be chewed easily. They got it almost right this time however there was a section of my wife’s fish that...was little raw. Nevertheless a nice place to eat. Munir D.More
