Friend had the platter, he enjoyed it. I had the special (kingklip), was very tasty. Get a window seat and watch the action passing by. Low key. Chain restaurant. Good value.

Positioned right on the sea front at Camps Bay you can sit outside enjoying the sunset eating a range of fish and sushi. We liked being able to have rice or fries, or a mix of both. Our favourite was grilled calamari with fries accompanied by cool Castle Light. Excellent quality dishes that don't break the bank!

Walking along the main road in Camps Bay I was just looking for a shaded seat with a view of the sea. There is not such a great view here at road level which meant it was less crowded than most of the other bars and restaurants but they had good calamari with a choice of sides. Reasonable service.

Predictably good. We ate their twice. Great prices. Ten King prawns and chips taste as good as lobster outstanding. Calamari was baby calamari soft and not chewy we just loved it

Located on the busy sea front road, this is one of many eating places on the strip. We spotted a vacant table out front and our drinks order was quickly taken. Took a while for us to decide if there was a light snack on the menu we'd like and I spotted the Mediterranean vegetable dish and my wife was... More

I had kingklip which wasn't too bad, the chips were fairly bland frozen chips. Other half had trout, again ok but sauce was bland. I've eaten at Ocean Basket outside of SA and this comes no where near as good - strange as Ocean Basket originated in SA. Ok meal but I wouldn't revisit

Although part of a chain, the fish at Ocean Basket is always excellent. The choice of platters and combinations is great, so you can have a bit of everything. Great for a satisfying lunch or a casual dinner. It's a must try when in Cape Town, and the one in Camps Bay has the perfect setting.

Good choice of reasonably priced seafood sushi and good old fish and chips. Fast service. Don't forget to tip 10%.

We were visiting from Scotland and although there were a lot to choose from the camps bay as in restaurants, we are glad we chose the ocean basket. Lovely fish, good customer service and you must try the ginger beer oh my it's delightful, I wasn't feeling well so I had a small dish which was very tasty
