We've visited the Ocean Basket after watching the game between the Cheetas and the Bulls. What a relief. At least this was one place where our Bulls felt welcome!

The outlet was extremely busy as it was after a sold-out rugby match, but we were warned that the food might take a while and a very friendly waiter checked on us at intervals.

The Ocean Basket in city centre provided us with great service. Attended to rapidly and with personal touch that is not often received at such restaurants. Food served was fresh, hot and tasty. Management and watron paid sufficient attention to all oue needs without becoming overbearing. Highly recommended for a visit.

I had to return my food as it had been oversalted to the point of not been palatable. This has put me off Ocean Basket for a while

The service was good, and the platter we shared was delicious. No complaints this time around. Good prawns, and well cooked fish. The sushi wasn't bad either . If you're looking for seafood , then this is a good place with excellent value.

A pleasant meal. No specific negatives. I suppose a general ocean basket experience. Very soft spoken waiter. Tomatoes in salad were not fresh as one would like and the chips with the meal were very bland.

I was very surprised at the quality of the food especially as I was under the impression it caters more for the fast food market. Well the food was fast but incredibly fresh and well seasoned. Had the cajun calamari and the sole. Very very tasty!

I really enjoyed their platter's prawn and mussels, with a lemon garlic butter prepared in sauce slightly drizzled over, which is super yummy 👍😬 Stuffed squid Saganaki (not on the menu, but available if requested), is very tasty and a great starter or accompanying dish for sharing. Baklava tasted good, was served hot with ice cream.

I'm set on my routine so I always visit one seafood restaurant. My sister suggested we try Ocean Basket on our visit here at the waterfront. Everything was just perfect, the sizeable tasty meals, the location& the service. Thumbs up.

Thank Linda B
