I ventured in to this restaurant on one occasion about a year ago and ordered salmon from their sushi menu. The salmon had clearly been frozen before being served to me. It was vile. I will never set foot in there again.

Warm and cozy Restaurant (especially during winter days)with a wide variety of seafood dishes. Amazing fresh taste and there is even a sushi bar. We had the sharing Seafood platter for two. As I said amazing. It is situated just outside the mid town on the road to Cango Caves.

Still the best for Sushi. Got a table outside under the Karoo stars. Best service ever. Only thing was the rude guy who did not know how to park.

My girlfriend is Chinese and as we travel around South Africa her preference is fish (she doesn't eat meat) and so once you are out of the big cities it is sometimes a challenge to find food that she both likes and will eat.

Sushi was horrible! Couldn't eat it. R500 down te drain. Ocean basket Oudtshoorn will never see me again. They don't even have mussels or calamari.

Was able to lunch there 3 times, and every time the food was perfect. We tried the Fishermans platter and the Queen prawns.
