Reviewed 5 January 2021 via mobile

We visited for lunch yesterday and were not impressed at all by the lack of cleanliness. The tablecloths were filthy...the chairs were grubby and not much adherence to hygiene protocol....something needs to be done and soon.More

Really disappointed in the service experienced at Cape Gate OB. We used to be regulars and always received good food and great service! Today we received dirty glasses, Tabasco sauce that had no lid on that had been watered down (maybe it’s a cost-saving initiative)...but it tasted disgusting then to my dismay I ordered a mojito that literally tasted like Soda water and rum! Since when did the above become acceptable?!?! Not cool, I for one will not be frequenting any OB soon! Cape Town Fish Market for the win! Great service, hygienic and great wines! I forgot to mention the rocks as rolls 🤢🤮More

While all the other restaurants in the area was full Ocean Basket was relatively empty. My conclusion is that they are getting to expensive. Ocean basket was reasonably priced but now it is becoming an expensive lunch Service was very friendly and effective. The food...was average to good. We had fish and chips and with the drinks and tip came to over R200More

I live right around the corner from Cape Gate and never have time to go for dinner due to the nature of my business. I am a registered tourist guide and have a small tour company as well. So, I seriously work 7 days a...week ... up at 4 am & only get home most nights after 20h00...!! To go out for dinner is always a mission, being tiered & exhausted after a long days work... it's the last thing I feel for. If we go out for dinner... ( Birthdays... Anniversary. .. ) .... what ever needs to be celebrated. ... Ocean Basket Cape Gate... here we come. Always good service.... happy, friendly faces to serve us. Best sea food meal in C.T. for the very best price...!! Well done !!!More

The food is excellent. Service good, but the prices are sky high. The average person can visit, say once or twice a year.

Ocean Basket is our first choice of affordable seafood restaurant. The platter for 2 is always good and their pink lemonade is a sure winner

Am a regular. Love the scene, food, waiters and price. Served about the healthiest meal in the food court and provides a very clean and breezy atmosphere for couples and small families. Always hospitable. Friendly staff and satisfying dishes.
