We were a group of 12 (family) and instead of being greeted with smiles and accommodating attitudes it became a dispute between the staff "in front of us" whether or not they would be helping us. Eventually we were seated and told they will only be giving us two umbrellas as they would use the other ones for the next... More

Went to this restaurant for a dinner with friends on the 3rd of January 2017. Waitress good and food good. But a bunch of small children between the ages of 2 and 5 were running around, shouting, screaming and disturbing our dinner. We very professionally asked the manager/owner if he could ask the parents to quiet down the kids a... More

Management response:

Firstly, its Panos and Soula, otherwise known as the General Manager. Secondly, this is a family restaurant: which includes 2 and 5 year olds running around enjoing their time. I sincerly apologise for the fact that the children were happy and enjoying themselves. Thirdly,Soula was not arrogant, she was trying to be polite about your complaint regrading happy children. You... More

Nice seafood menu, not even to bad prepared. But if you walk on the pier behind the restaurant it gets disgusting. Not anymore thanks.

Decided to have a quick early dinner there as setting is truly amazing. We were sitting outside on the veranda in the non smoking area. We overheard the table behind us asking the manager if one of the guests could smoke there as she was in a wheelchair. The manager proceeded to give them permission without even asking us if...

Seafood restaurant right by the waves in the bottom of False Bay. Simple and a bit ruff interior but very nice and good priced.

Don't be put off by the look of a basic cafe at the end of the harbour carpark! This is a traditional and authentic fish cafe/restaurant, with excellent food and great staff. One of the best views of the bay located on the harbour wall. And if you are lucky the seals might be hanging around outside too. Great cooking,... More

The restaurant overlooks a small harbour, like a mini Antibes(France) yacht basin. The food is wonderful, especially the 'pick of the ocean' which consists of calamari, hake, prawns and chips or rice. On a fine day one can sit outside, when the sea spray combines with the vista and the food to create the perfect ambience for the ocean menu.... More

My sons treated me to a birthday dinner at Ocean Basket, Gordon'sBay, on Monday 31st October 2016. (I love seafood) I visited the restaurant the previous Friday night with a group of friends. A young waiter, Panno, was very attentive and at one stage he mentioned crayfish. We had a brief conversation about where they source their crayfish from. Upon... More

We had the selection of usual Ocean basket fare - great seafood. And of course the beautiful view on a sunny Saturday afternoon. What makes this worth mentioning is the staff. The manager and staff are very friendly and well trained. They are attentive without being a nuisance. They show an interest and add a personal touch to the occasion.

Other than the view, my experience was rather pleasant; the service was good, the food was delectable and prepared for the palette. Would recommend this restaurant.
