For seafood lovers, I would recommend Ocean Basket. For a group dining, It's more economical to order as a group. The sea food could either be fried or grilled. Very help staff. We had my Mum's birthday lunch there and the staff all sing for her while bringing the cake.

I frequent Ocean Basket anytime am in Lagos VI, and usual after church late afternoon lunch or early diner is the family delight and occasional meetings. In Lagos there is not a better choice for pure sea food place - it's a family delight

We had lunch here and it was an unforgettable experience. Our seafood platter consisted of prawns, calamari, grilled fish (surprisingly tasty, well seasoned and not boring), chips and fried rice. The service was unparalleled, our waiter couldn't do enough for us and very kindly packed our leftovers to take home. The restaurant was quiet and serene. We will surely return.q

Good attention to detail. The only downside for me was the bathrooms are downstairs. For me less drinks because upstairs has the best views

Nice quiet restaurant also very appropriate for business meetings. Wide array of grilled and panfried fish, prawns and calamari. I just love how they serve the meal, which comes in cooking pans! Staff is just great. They also serve excellent coffee.

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

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.
