Best sea food with good services and affordable prices. My partner and I ate in the ocean basket in Golden Reef City and in Mbabane in the Happy Valley Mall, Swaziland. There is a choice of different sizes of prawns combined with calamari and other kind of fish. Wifi is there

Probably the best value for money in the Rosebank Mall. I tried almost all of their dishes during a 3 month stint in Sandton. Each one of them always turned out fresh, crispy and overall tasty.

A much-promised visit to this Ocean Basket was a pleasure: jumpingly fresh fish, cooked to order, served on massive platters. Can't fault the cooking on this - everything on our mixed platter was done to perfection. Picky diners with us can order bits and bobs from other parts of the menu with no problem from the excellent waiting staff. It was hot, hot hot that day, so I'd recommend sitting inside where there is aircon, as it was getting us to melting point rather fast (pity the kitchen staff). Wine/beer on drinks list seemed pretty extensive, although more guidance as to what each entry actually goes best with would be helpful (not a criticism - it isn't their fault that I don't know SA wines any more). Another good example of how you can eat out incredibly well for very little hard cash in Sunny South Africa.

This is a chain of SA seafood restaurants. We visited the one in Emperor's Palace mall near the airport. They have great seafood at a good price with good service. Our meal came with prawn, kingslip, sweet potato and a spinach side. All were very tasty. We liked it so much we ate a second time a week apart. Not fancy but table service. Food was delivered in a timely fashion. Perhaps too much butter but...it was good.
