Much below par of any OB round the country, high traffic, get you in get you out...weeny portions, dry fries, even the side chilli and garlic minimal, very cheapskate..,service OK. just sub-par, better OB's anywhere else

From once a not so satisfying eat out experience ocean basket has certainly improved and now serve top quality food with a view. It is not the most expensive seafood in V&A but is good quality. I recommend a seafood platter.

We have been to this specific Ocean Basket many, many times over the years. This time...HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! Firstly one had to ask for bread, then when requesting additional chilli, garlic and tartare sauce it was advised that one had to pay extra @ R10.00/serving. The...More
