I have only been to Hermanus about three times before. About 3 weeks ago I went camping with my friends near by and decided to go to Ocean Basket in Hermanus to have something to eat. We were about 10 people, which I know is a lot, but not too much. We sat at the table and the waiter came to take drinks orders. He asked half of us and then walked away, not talking the others orders. Later (about an hour ago) when everyone had something to drink we wanted to order food. The waiter was nowhere to be found. After waiting and getting quite annoyed we got hold of another waiter to order our food. Again, he took the orders, leaving some people out. At the end of the day half of us were eating while the others wait. More of us were eating something totally different from what we've ordered. It was just a horrible experience at this restaurant. Will not go there again soon.

We love Hermanus and would not go without stopping of at Ocean Basket. Always good service and great fish. What better than sitting with a good value meal, glass of wine and that view. Watch out for the free show, whales, dolphins etc.

Franchise, stagnant menu, nothing fancy. For people who would like a normal sea harvest meal Ocean Basket is worth it.
