OK, this is a chain but the seafood is fantastic. We visited for lunch and only wanted a light meal but it was so good, we ended up with three courses each. Nice open venue, lovely decor, exceptional staff. Had Don Pedro for desert. Each of us had a different seafood meal and each was delicious. Perfectly prepared and served.... More

Wanted a platter for two for one person and received a platter for one. Order incorrectly taken. Asked for lemon butter etc on the side but not so. Asked for grilled fish and calamari, fish was grilled, calamari was fried. Something went very wrong.Two other business colleagues had completely different orders. Not so busy, but the food took a while... More

The best chocolate lava cake ever! This restaurant has also really delicious seafood. We had a big family and everything went smoothly and service was fast.

My family from UK insist on a meal at this restaurant on each visit. With the exception of my wife, who finds the chips simply awful, we found it still delivered good value. Piped music from Greek vocalists tends to drown conversation. Reduced volume could improve the ambience. Not a place for a quiet meal.

Usually order platters as there is an assortment Lately they have been serving BASS as their line fish - must tell you its superb and makes the platter worthwhile. You always know what you are getting, service all the same and taste always the same - so its a staple for a quick meal - and desserts are always edible... More

Not being a fan of the Ocean Basket in Brooklyn, Pretoria, owing to a few lousy meals we had there in the past, we decided to try it again in the hope that we would be pleasantly surprised. It was unfortunately not to be! While our waiter was attentive and friendly, the food again disappointed. The sushi we ordered as... More

Poor service made us leave even before we had a chance to place our order. Firstly, the wine we chose was out of stock. We only found this out after we complained that we hadn't receive our wine twenty minutes after ordering. The we picked another wine and, believe it or not, the whole process repeated itself. Then we left.

I have tried at least 7 OB's in Pretoria, but always comes back to Brooklyn, because the quality is by far the best.
