Thank you to Ocean Basket for making our Mother's Day lunch one to remember. From the beautiful cup cakes when we arrived to good service, neither too much attention or too little, to food perfectly prepared, a day to remember for sure. Our starters were fried haloumi and crumbed prawn tails; mains were kingklip and the mussel and prawns combo,... More

My wife and I decided on a quick getaway to Port Alfred.

The setting on the banks of the Kowie River is simply awesome! The service rendered by our waiters... More
