In 1995, South Africa had just stepped into a new world of freedom. It was in this milieu that Fats Lazarides saw an opportunity to create a restaurant that served delicious affordable seafood, the key word here being affordable. Soon, the restaurant garnered a strong fan following. Today, it is the largest fish retailer within Southern Africa and boasts over 201 restaurants in 16 countries around the globe.

Ocean Basket’s menu offers a variety of choices including salads, soups, fishes, calamari, prawns, oysters, Mediterranean sushi, and Japanese sushi.

The restaurant is a good choice if you have little ones, thanks to their thoughtfully prepared children’s meals. They also serve yummy desserts such as baklava cheesecake, chocolate lava cake, pear & white chocolate pudding, ice creams and yogurt. As for drinks, they offer a range of milkshakes some of which are pretty decadent. Another plus – they have Wi-Fi too!
