“I was disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

I visited several Ocean Baskets in SA and always enjoyed eating there but I was so disappointed with my visit to Nelspruit Ocean Basket on 5 December 2013. The chips/fries was uneatable it taste like old half raw potatoes and they covered the food with a yellow sauce that spoiled my food. I ll never go there again! We also had to try and stabilized the table by using serviettes. The waitress said its always like that? No it wasn't a pleasant eat out a waste of money!

“AWESOME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

Just order anything on the menu. Everything is wonderful - appetizers to deserts. Plus, its not too expensive and the service is prompt.

“Non-Smoker unfriendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

This used to be a regular "supper" spot and it has a wonderful outdoor deck where I'd love to enjoy my meal. Sadly, like many eateries in South Africa, the fresh air outdoor tables are set aside for smokers, and if you do sit inside in the non-smoking section you usually have to put up with smoke wafting indoors too! As a result I have not been back to Ocean Basket in about 2 years, preferring to get my seafood fix at the Mediterranean instead. A great pity, as their fried fish & chips was good value and tasty, the calamari always excellent, and better still, they are just down the road from my home!

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

The service was good at Ocean Basket, but food was meh. If you just need something to fill your stomach, you'll be fine. If you're looking for something nice, this isn't your cup of tea.
