Had a lovely meal here on our first night in Cape Town, it's in a good spot in Sea Point in a nice little shopping 'mall'. Food was delicious and the service was really good too - would not hesitate to recommend.

The food at the Ocean Basket in Sea Point is normally quite good but the wheels came off this Wednesday evening when they were reasonably full, but not turning away patrons. After ordering our fish and chips/salads soon after arriving, we had an unbelievably long...More

We shared a platter for 2. The portion is generous. The seafood is of excellent quality and really tasty I never would have expected that quality from a chain restaurant

The fish and chips tasted as though they had been cooked earlier and reheated. The calamari was way too chewy. Very disappointing, would give this a miss.

Part of the well known South African Ocean Basket chain , this fish restaurant breaks the shackles of a franchise and delivers great sea food dishes consistently. Well priced, well presented and tasty. The platters for one or two are superb value.( generous portions) This...More

What I like about Ocean Basket is that I more or less know what I'm going to get, which is a preferable experience for me in Cape Town. Many restaurants here are pretentious, in my opinion. With Ocean Basket one gets 90% consistency, which is...More
