We were all very full at the end of the evening, if you like seafood then this is the place to go. Had the meze platter to start followed by the full deck platter,... More

My aunt and I decided to go to ocean basket as our restaurant of choice for last nights dinner, best decision we could have made. The service was on point and the food was amazing even though the evening looked crazy busy. My aunt had the calamari main and I had a platter for one with extra mussels. Everything was... More

I can honestly say that my experience at the tableview branch was the best ever. The waiter was on point. The food was beautifully plated. The flavours was rich and well balanced. Nothing overpowered the ingredients. The prawns was perfectly grilled. I would recommend ocean basket to all my friends and family. Ps. Cattle baron has to take the back... More

Needed to have a quick seafood dinner before heading back to the B&B. Always good to know that Ocean Basket can facilitate a good meal!! Staff are efficient and you know what you are getting. Food is fresh and tasty.

I have been to Ocean Busket in V & A Waterfront and fell in lover with the place. However, staff there has too much work thus they cannot always offer high quality of service as there are always so many people. Try this place and you will fall in love with it. It is worth going there, despite the fact... More

Food quality has deteriorated. Ordered Kingklip Cajun style, got lemon butter, sent it back, they just wiped of the lemon butter and send it back to the table grilled and again not Cajun. after this the fish was completely dry and overkooked. Waiters looked bored and busy intensely watching streetlife through the windows instead of looking after customers, it was... More

We frequently visited the Ocean Basket in Table View a couple of years ago. Always had the best service - but - In celebrating my husband's birthday, we decided to go there. What a disappointment. You were always welcomed by happy staff. I think we chose staff training day, as each attendant had a trainee. Not that we complain, as... More

As a family, we often eat at an Ocean Basket because we always know what we're ordering. What a disappointment to see the two hakes almost hidden in the corner of the chips, each shorter than 10 cm in length. It was a quick meal.

I visited the ocean basket 2 days ago with a friend. We have been nearby table view and looking for some sea food. I've seen their restaurants before but never went inside so far. The service was really friendly and nice. Unfortunately the food wasn't. The mussels were too hard and chewie, like they have been frozen, and the rice... More
