I've given Ocean Basket 1 star because the food isn't bad, it's pretty tasty. HOWEVER, the abysmal customer service makes the food entirely forgettable. I visited this particular location and was surprised to see how friendly the staff all seemed. The manager especially has a smiling problem but this is okay. However, we began to realize that the friendly behavior... More

The idea of this place is great. The food options are rich, varied and interesting in combinations. The food is good. The ambience is not necessarily so great, but, hey, this is Lagos, right? The price? Always burns a hole in your pocket...and you'll feel it burning😂. But they never put a gun to your head to go there. Your... More

Even before our order was taken, I was struck by the very warm welcome we received as soon as we stepped in. We were quickly ushered to our seats and, with an engaging smile, Blessing informed us that she would be taking care of us. She lived up to her words, going through the menu and making useful suggestions. She... More

This is a very refreshing place to eat when you want a break from local cuisine. It is not a proper sea food restaurant in that I'm not convinced the fish is not frozen. The first time we visited the ikeja branch the food was awesome, I especially enjoyed the fresh salad. The service was also very good attentive without... More

Years ago (2013,) I went to an Ocean Basket in Johannesburg and didn't quite enjoy it. So I was somewhat skeptical about eating at this spot when I met with some friends for dinner. My doubts were immediately erased once I got my platter for one. Jumbo shrimp, calamari, mussels, fresh fish, it was seafood paradise. I'm not typically used... More

This is the best seafood place I have seen in Lagos. Tucked inside the Ikeja mall. The environment is appropriate for a business meet. Lot of food choices. Will definitely visit again

My partner and i tend to Restaurant hop a lot, so this was one of our "hopping" spots. We had passed it by a lot of times but decided to give it a shot and we didn't regret it. It was very nice, lovely ambience, clean and great service! The chef came to ask us if we loved the food... More

A contemporary family oriented casual dining restaurant located in the heart of the social hub of Victoria Island. Undoubtedly the best seafood South of the Sahara! Served in a relaxed atmosphere with service uncommon in these parts.
