I recommend Ocean Basket Upington to anyone. It is situated in the Kalahari Mall with long operating hours. Good secure parking is available for travelers. Very good service. The staff is well trained and friendly. Lovely atmosphere and very good food. The hake and calamari...dishes are my favourite on the menu. It is a jewel in the Kalahari.More

I'm about a week late with my review, but does not diminish its content. Had lunch with family here...ordered a few mixed dishes with platter, as we always do. OB upington is consistent with its quality. As with most places in upington, where quality is...usually hit and miss, depending on the day, one is left with an assurance of consistency when ordering meals. Where there is a problem with any dish, I find that it's dealt with expeditiously and with minimum fuss by staff. As for staff, they are exceptionally friendly whether the place is full or not. They make one feel at home, and receive one as such. Managers are always at hand to steer proceedings, and the staff generally seems to gel well at the times we were there. Being a Capetonian, getting consistently well cooked fish in Upington is usually a monumental task. Nothing beats fresh. Nothing beats sitting at a harbor in Hout Bay or Kalk Bay with the locals eating fresh fish of the boat....that's the gold standard...but for what it is, OB Upington does the job for us. Thanks for being consistent in a market where hit and miss is the standard. Thanks to your staff for being attentive and jovial where being average is the standard. Thanks to management and owners for sticking to their guns with a quality product, despite the market being extremely difficult and fickle.More

There was no option to give no star. What an incompetent run business this is when it’s month-end. Clearly being in a town like Upington it works, if the restaurant has a few people on certain days. A name that represents a certain franchise, but...that doesn’t follow through like the rest. Service was non-existent, we laid and cleared our own tables to start with. An hour after ordering a full deck platter, it arrives; what a let-down! There’s a platter for 4, but not for 6. We thought the full deck would be on the same platter as served -and- the portion-size the same as the other OBs in Southern Africa when we travel. That’s a price of R85 per person, yet the platter was insufficient. 5 prawns, 4 fries, 2 calamari rings, 1 mussel later, after the owner tried to address certain issues we raised with service and not being like the other OBs, she just shrugged her shoulders and tried to explain that everyone was unhappy that day because they had their hands full with the volume. Safest bet would be Spur just across; they serve seafood too. A franchise that clearly is known beyond Africa, for a reason. Steer clear of OB in Upington if you don’t want to be disappointed.More
