The staff were excellent here and went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. I am vegetarian and the staff were excellent at coming up with a meal suitable for vegetarians (no mean feat in a fish restaurant) The food was excellent and service was brilliant, and this has to be one of the best ocean baskets in the chain. For us (coming from the UK) the food, as is it generally in SA, was very good value. Thanks to all the staff there!

When you go to any seafood restaurant you want to taste the sea and not some heavy spiced up seafood.

Well I can gladly recommend this restaurant to you.

Very good seafood and fish. I had sushi and then calamari/prawns with chips and rice. Very nice and friendly staff – I even took several photos with them.

While visiting Hermanus recently with the intention of watching those gentle, giant mammals from the Atlantic Ocean my family and I were pleasantly surprised to find the Ocean Basket restaurant. My first dining experience in the Ocean Basket was on transit at Dubai International Airport. Frustrated at not being able to catch a glimpse of the whales (it was November and the end of the season for whale watching) we decided to give the restaurant a go, having had a good impression of its Dubai branch. We were not disappointed. Not only was the seafood fresh, it was relatively cheap. You could choose the upper deck and have your food, while peering out into the ocean through the wide, clear glass panels. This wonderful experience sort of make out for the disappointment for not being able to see the whales.
