Had the "Pick of the Ocean" for R130.00. Too salty, overcooked and a general mess. Sometimes it does not pay to visit franchise restaurants, when there are other fantastic seafood options in the Garden Route. Service was ok.

It took a while to get someone to help us and the food was not up to standard, when it eventually arrived. Also visited Hartenbos Ocean Basket during January (after the schools opened) and although the service was better than George, the food was terrible! It appears as though the food was prepared at least 1 hour before it was... More

Went there this evening with family and experienced the worst service and food ever. We ordered our food and drinks and eventually had to go and find a waiter to ask for our drinks. When our food arrived we had no cutlery and half of the table didn't get their food. Trying to get the attention of a waiter was... More

Went there for a lunch. Was waiting for purchase more than half an hour. Staff was doing everything except doing thier job: talking, chewing gum, walking around... then we saw that a person on the kitchen was serving fish with his hands. That was the last drop and we left

Consistently good. Particularly well-trained staff; friendly and professional. Decent value but recently (Nov/Dec '16) the choice of line-fish has been limited to Angelfish only. Where have the Dorado and Yellowtail gone? I suspect it's the 'buy-in' price that's driving this policy, but a mistake in my opinion.
