Ocean Basket has re-opened on the 25 November with new owners. Service was excellent as usual and the food was great. As part of the launch, free wine and starters were offered which was a nice surprise. The prices have gone up though, but still...a great place for great food.More

My kids from the UK and I had a hankering for prawns the other night and I, with trepidation suggested we try Ocean Basket in Port Alfred for said victuals. Let me say, two previous visits to this establishment didn't turn out to be memorable...dining experiences. But what a pleasant surprise! Our prawns, calamari and salad was perfect, and the pleasant waitron made our evening a delightful experience.More

We love Ocean Basket but this one in Port Alfred is quite special. We arrived in Port Alfred having never been there and found Ocean Basket on our first day. The view of the Kowie River whilst sipping on a cold glass of wine and...enjoying a seafood platter was a fantastic start to our holiday! We went back twice during our holiday. The service was amazing both times and the food delish! Can’t wait for our return soon! Thank you!More

Lovely location overlooking river . Was a bit windy for sitting outside . We sat in the closed off terrace which created a geat atmosphere. Inside may be a bit noisy due to the open kitchen and lots of staff. The service was great ....Slight wait for the food but it was worth it. I had a dish with hake, calamari and prawns. The hake was the BEST I'VE EVER HAD - MUST GET THE GRILLED HAKE , not the fried. It was firm , succulent and tasty. My daughter had the 12 prawn special and wanted mine as well ! Rice was a little stodgy / overcooked but the chips were great. Service was efficient and friendly.More

I really liked the setting, right next to the river, in view of the bridge. It was reasonably pleasant but we waited WAY to long, an incredibly long time. I order the basic fish and chips and my order came with kalamari which I definitely...didn't order and ended up paying for (so expensive and slow). The bread came AFTER the meal (which was ridiculous). One person said they had a big take-out order which had slowed them down but they should have told us to expect a wait and bad service upfront. The poor service really dampened a good evening with friends.More

Amazing lunch of calamari and fish, even though there was load shedding and we couldn't have chips or fried food, the grilled calamari and fish was amazing with the rice. Loved watching hte boats go past.
