We often visit Ocean Basket at the Bloemfontein Waterfront. Service is great, even on busy days, although it may take some time to be served. The waiters are very well trained and friendly. Managers are also visible. Can recommend!

The food was delicious, staff was friendly and efficient. Their food was fresh and made with love, very tasty. The restaurant is clean, the atmosphere is nice and romantic. It is my favorite spot. Nice shops around as well in the mall.

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.
