A little rustic but good atmosphere and great range of seafood served in buckets and aprons to wear for the customers. Friendly staff and generous portions, we struggled to finish ours. We sat on the balcony outside with views of bustling Kloof St.

Offers all the yummy seafood we've come to love of Ocean Basket except this one comes with a lovely courtyard where one can relax and escape the bustling Kloof street. Perfect for a summer's day.

Extremely busy, lucky they changed the parking situation as per last time i was there. I find that they should do more specials for people dining on a budget.
