Myself and 11 others attended this restaurant for lunch having driven there straight from Jo'Berg airport (and so hadnt booked). Staff were very welcoming and easily accommodated us having three tables in the outside covered area. Drinks were soon served and we were allowed ample time to drink chat and decide on our meals. While waiting, fresh mini bread rolls were served with 3 dips (garlic, chilli and flavoured mayo). Orders were soon taken and after another round of drinks, lunch was served. I had ordered the fish and chips (which comes with half chips/half rice) with a lemon sauce. Couldnt fault it - rice properly cooked, chips how I like them and as for the fish - it was really good. A friend had a plate of salmon sushi and couldnt fault it - it certainly looked good ! Not one of the 12 of us had a single complaint. If you like your fish, this is the place to go. Incidentally, we all went back 5 days later. This time I had a platter of prince prawns (with chips). Again, perfectly cooked and very tasty. Our whole party thoroughly enjoyed our second visit as much as the first. Price wise, we were blessed with the exchange rate being over 20 ZAR to the pound but even so, the prices are more than reasonable. Totally recommend this restaurant

On our way to the Zebula Golf Estate we went for lunch at the Bela Bela mall in the Waterberg region. Seated outside in front of the restaurant we enjoyed our chenin blanc with a well-prepared shrimp tempura and a variety of maki prawn and nigiri tuna. All fresh and well prepared. Nice and friendly service and overall moderately priced.

This was the only restaurant we found open late where we could sit down during the week. Others like Wimpy were closed. Food was great we ordered a Plata managers and staff very friendly. It is in the mall and the outside area available but we couldn't use it cause it was a bit chilly. All was good and tipical Ocean Basket service.

Went there with lot of hesitation after our hydro pool visit at Warmbaths. The down was dead & dark. The experience in the resort was also - just so-so. It looked like a site which needs lot of modernization and better service, awareness of the springs & its benefits and more quality needs to be ingested. All in all, we still enjoyed the pools and left for dinner. Ocean Basket - was it is. We were received by a waiter Mr. Kenny who was thoroughly a star. From setting up our table, advising not to sit outside as there are mosquitoes. We ordered for Mojito & two family platters. Eveyrthing was spot on. From the grills (cajun) to the softness of fish, prawns, flavouring and the entire service. Highly recommend to stop by Ocean Basket and say hi to Kenny. The resident manager checked us twice during our dinner if all were good. These are spot on

Had lunch over the weekend and was pleased to see that the high standard of service, food and cleanliness have been maintained. The staff are always friendly and attentive and have a sense of humor 😊. Will be back. It would be nice though if the franchise started offering sweet potato fries as an option.

I know this franchise well and I was completely disappointing with this one. The portions were tiny compared to the standard I am used to. The grilled fish had to sent back as it was still raw, the three way calamari was more like a two way joke. I hope this is not the way the franchise is going, as they will be losing a lot of regulars. Maybe new management will help?

The Ocean Basket is definetely one of the best restaurants in Bela. Well worth a visit. Lots of parking, nice and clean, friendly staff, very good seafood, relaxing setting. A "must stop" if you are visiting in the area.

We visit the Ocean Basket quite often and the food is consistently good. Service is friendly and food usually comes out quickly. The downside is the lack of ambience; the layout lacks interest and character and has no bespoke features to make it look interesting to the eye.

This Ocean Basket is situated miles from the sea but they make the most amazing fish dishes right here in Bela-Bela. You will never be left stranded here as the food and staff are both amazing.
