Franchise restaurants can sometimes be hard to review, but what sets Potch's Ocean Basket apart is the location. In the heart of the varsity hustle and bustle it creates a unique feel and you almost forget that it is a chain restaurant.

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.

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.
