“Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Fantastic value. We both had the new platter of angelfish, prince prawns and calamari with rice and chips - delicious. One problem is finding the place - it is in Village Square on the second floor with a great view for whale watching!

“Magnificent view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Have never eaten at Ocean Basket before (apparently just a South African diner.) The view of the bay with whales (we did not see much of anything but their tails) is worth sitting by the window. Food is inexpensive and delicious. We even had music outside our window - See photo.

“Standard Ocean Basket fare but a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Very much the typical Ocean Basket restaurant with almost fast food style service. I had the sole which was really delicious and fresh tasting. Great views.

“Good Food/Value/Wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Ocean Basket is always a safe option when wanting to eat fish and once again, the Ocean Basket in Hermanus did not let us down. The staff were excellent and the meal, as with all Ocean Baskets, was great. The one difference - the location. Hermanus is definitely a great place to visit when wanting to 'unwind and relax'. If you want fresh fish you can trust at a reasonable price, then this is the restaurant for you.
