Can it always be this quiet in Oudtshoorn? Despite the lack of customers the cooked service was extremely slow - so it was just as well that the place had free wifi! Patience my waitress was excellent and kept bustling out with drinks, bread, dips etc. The food when it eventually materialised was really good. Fresh fish and calamares although... More

Ocean Basket is conveniently right next to the hotel we stayed. After a very hot day, we opted for fish for supper. There were a few Trainee staff members, but they were friendly and helpful. Once or twice the Pay Point was unmanned which did frustrate a Patron. The food was cooked to perfection and we enjoyed our meal.

Popped in for a quick supper. Restaurant was fairly empty, but it was still early! Service was good, food was typical Ocean Basket (fish / sushi). The restaurant is looking tired, and the front patio needed sweeping and tidying up.

She was very arrogant! the manager... More

The service was terrible! The Sushi was tasteless The wasabi was probably old. My boyfriend had the prawn and mussel combo, and he said it was average. Expected a little more from Ocean Basket. Especially in a seasonal town.

I ventured in to this restaurant on one occasion about a year ago and ordered salmon from their sushi menu. The salmon had clearly been frozen before being served to me. It was vile. I will never set foot in there again.

Had the misfortune to eat here. We waited more than an hour and a half after ordering, during which time no one came to check on us. Had to go to the bar for drinks, and they didn't come clear the table so it got to be a mess. Staff got ticked off if we asked them questions. The waiter... More
