Good attention to detail. The only downside for me was the bathrooms are downstairs. For me less drinks because upstairs has the best views

Nice quiet restaurant also very appropriate for business meetings. Wide array of grilled and panfried fish, prawns and calamari. I just love how they serve the meal, which comes in cooking pans! Staff is just great. They also serve excellent coffee.

Years ago (2013,) I went to an Ocean Basket in Johannesburg and didn't quite enjoy it. So I was somewhat skeptical about eating at this spot when I met with some friends for dinner. My doubts were immediately erased once I got my platter for...More

A contemporary family oriented casual dining restaurant located in the heart of the social hub of Victoria Island. Undoubtedly the best seafood South of the Sahara! Served in a relaxed atmosphere with service uncommon in these parts.
