Service is slow almost everywhere in South Africa but Ocean Basket will win that medal. We really enjoyed the sushi though- hopefully it isn't because we were so hungry by then!

Good food, choice of two menus, one from OB and one from restaurant next door. Service could be better. Food mainly fish, with lots of choice and options.
