We have used this franchise in several towns and this was no disappointment. Staff were really efficient and friendly - Deon was a star and the food was really good. We returned a few days later and were still well satisfied with everything.

We simply love the fish which is served, my favourite being Pangaisis. The platter for 2 is our favourite, which we always share , leaving me happy and smiling and satisfied. Service with a smile, waiters are very hospitable and helpful.

The atmosphere is dynamic and the waiter was friendly, available and willing to assist and serve us all the time. I am impressed with their service and will definitely go back again when I am around Durban.

Nice location. Need to go through a small arcade and take stairs to OB. Service was fantastic. The kingklip and prawn platter was great. Had a few special requests which were happily met by the staff. Nice spacious layout with balcony options. Always good experience...More

We went here for dinner with the family the food was great service excellent and if it wasn't so cold I'm sure the ocean view would have been amazing too! One of the best ocean baskets in Durban 😁

We usually have a seafood platter for 2 which more than ample. Normally very busy and sometimes the wait for your food to arrive may take a bit longer than usual. It's always worth the wait though. Good value.

On the final evening of our holiday we opted to visit the Ocean Basket... even the many stairs upward did not deter our lady friend with a disability. We were graciously and timeously greeted at the door and the service was excellent from that moment....More

We ate out at quite a few fish restaurants and nothing could compare with the delicious fresh prawns you get at Ocean Basket. We went back three times and each time it was excellent.
