You can dine cheap and you can dine expensive; they cater for everyone. The service is always excellent and the food superb. The owners are always on the floor and really know what is happening where. This is a restaurant to be frequented.

I visited this restaurant because I was outvoted and to my despair, I was right to be afraid. It has become obvious to me that either our seas are being totally overfished (which we all know), or Ocean Basket has made the unambiguous decision to reduce plate sized fish & chips due to economic reasons? I live for fish and... More

Fresh open setting, clean feel. Food was good quality. Enjoyed the coffee and Mozart cake as a dessert, can recommend this. Definitely a higher ranking Ocean Basket franchise. Service tops and enough parking in front of establishment.

We've come to know what to expect of the Ocean Basket restaurant chain. They offer good value for your money. Unlike some of the other outlets, the fish at the Potch branch is tasty and well prepared. Service was fast as we requested, overall quite pleasant.

Oh wow, really nice place, great vibe, friendly staff and excellent service. Sometimes I test the flexibility with regards to what they can serve as against what I want. They really went out of their way to accommodate my taste. Can really recommend visiting Ocean Basket in Potchefstroom.

Lovely friendly waitress. Quick service but food took a long time to come. A c ouple of mistakes but acceptable. Afrikaans waitress, English and Swiss family equals confusion in translation. Great price on English budget.2course wine and beers etc for 12, R1450 or approximately £80. Can't beat the value.

Potch doesn't offer much on a Sunday evening, which is the reason we were there. But as usual, we've been disappointed. Poor service, no background music and boring food.

Had lunch at this restaurant, it was a mild winters day, and sitting outside in the sun was really nice. My wife had the "Pick of the Ocean", this is a small platter for one consisting of prawns, calamari and fish with chips and rice, very filling. I had the Famous fish, a lighter meal as I am not a...
