Always love going to this place with my Wife. Whenever we in town this is our lunch stop. Best to go on a weekday. Weekends are just too busy. Must to order the Haloumi Cheese as a starter and the blue circus drink.

My family and I went to Ocean Basket Fordsburg for lunch on 15/07/2017. We were seated by our waitress and given menus. We ordered the Zucchini fritters as a starter followed by 2 prawn specials and 1 kingklip with chips. For drinks we ordered 2 passionfruit and lemonade and 1 grapitizer. We requested the waitress to bring the drinks first. My mother’s grapetizer arrived, but our passionfruit and lemonade did not arrive. After some time we were told they were repairing the machine, so we would have to wait a while. We agreed. 15 minutes later, the waitress comes back saying we would not be able to get the drinks we requested. I was stunned. When did you need a machine to make passion fruit and lemonade? While waiting for the food, we went to the bathroom to wash our hands. What a disappointment the bathroom was. It was in a terrible state. There was no paper towel roll to dry your hands and the hand wash dispenser was empty. This is unacceptable for a restaurant. We had to go to the waitress to request that they replenish the hand wash. Surely there should be someone checking the bathrooms at regular intervals to ensure that they are presentable for the customers. The complementary rolls arrived with butter, tartar sauce, garlic and chillies. The rolls were warm and fluffy and the butter melted as we put it on the rolls. We really enjoyed this. The zucchini fritters were a total disappointment, I don’t think some of them were cooked all the way through. They also did not look that appertizing. Our waitress was not very conscientious, she gave us only 2 serviettes instead of 3, and we then had to try to get her attention in order to request more serviettes. Overall the food was ok but the bathroom and service needs attention.

Went for lunch with a few friends. Very convenient parking. Good welcome, seated immediately. Our waitress took the order for the starters, salads, halloumi cheese and garlic rolls for the table, excellent. For main course we all wanted just Hake fish and salads, or Hake and chips. The waitress kept on trying to upsell us offering us kingklip instead of Hake, the list went on... We all settled on the hake, some with stir fry, some with chips and some with veg.... The waitress was pushing for a top up to the meal. Eventually we agreed on the prawns top up. Disappointed, really small prawns, we couldn't even clean them properly to eat them. The top up was just wasted. Overall the meal and atmosphere was pleasant.
