Ocean Basket
Ranked #12 of 18 Restaurants in Shelly Beach
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 August 2017 via mobile

On a trip through Margate, I met my daughter from Durban at Shelly Beach. Not a great fan of fish, I reluctantly went to Ocean Basket. Probably why I enjoyed the evening so much. My daughter had hake, her freind (normally very critical) a platter and I had mullet. All meals were well prepared. Nederberg Rose complimented the meal well. Sizwe was an attentive waiter, contributing to an enjoyable evening.

The Ocean Basket seldom fails to meet my expectations. The South Coast Mall just off the highway near to Shelly Beach is the place to go to get stocked up on groceries, drinks etc. when holidaying on the Natal South Coast. My best meals in the mall have been at the Ocean Basket. The fish is always fresh, very well prepared and reasonably priced.
The restaurant is clean and well-maintained. The staff are well-trained and efficient - but not over friendly.

I ordered sushi and i ended up getting something horrible with chillies - i complained and was told that is what I ordered! No i ordered sushi with no mayonnaise as this is a new very Westernized concept. There were three of us and we all ate at different times - how disorganized. Furthermore, we ordered two dishes and only one came. Two hours later we left - irritated and unhappy. What a horrible place - do not eat there!

Went there for lunch and we had great service and shared a platter. It was fantastic and we were very impressed with the amount of food on the platter. Will be back

I have never been to a restaurant where no one in my family wanted a prawn from my plate after tasting. The food was drenched in oil and the grilled line fish asked for was fried. King Prawns were small, queens at best. Expensive and really awful.
