I have been coming to ocean basket for a few years now and its unfortunate that both the quality of food and service appears to have regressed over the years. I ordered a seafood platter on my last visit. The food took far too long to arrive and when it did was lukewarm, my chips were somewhat soggy and the... More

Very nice place for seafood. I particularly enjoyed the outdoor area because of the beach air coming from the Atlantic. They were very generous with the appetisers and the order size. Ocean Basket has become my go to spot for seafood on the Island

I was awed by the choice of sea food varieties and the presentation was exquisite.With so many platter choices, I needed a guide and my waiter, though a bit slow, was most helpful. He took forever to get the bill, but I later learnt that he was a trainee, I still left him with a nice tip though. The pina... More

I thought this place was fine but nothing special. Prices were not too bad by Lagos standards but I would say by international standards the food is average. I had the salad to start which was big but a man can only eat so much cucumber. It says a lot about the wider problem of lack of good vegetables around... More

I had the best seafood meal at this restaurant and non is yet to match it! Located just opposite the bar beach, and the new EKO Atlantic city. Ocean basket offers a wide range of seafood options.

They serve a comprehensive array of fresh seafood piping hot with fantastic customer service. Our waiter was helpful in helping us choose our lunch and the manager was on hand to ensure we were satisfied with the food and service. The food was good generous portions and the price was moderate

Choose where you will be served...the first floor only - I have been seated both indoor (on my farewell from Lagos) and also outside in the open air. Service is excellent - the servings are huge. But do not sit downstairs on the ground floor - the kitchen's chimneys just do not seem to work and unless you are someone... More

I often enjoy seafood here, but options are limited to me. You eat almost same thing over and over again. I don't understand why they bring the glass tumblers from the refrigerator though. It should better be a dry glass than a wet misty glass. However, it is located in a nice place, good view, efficient service delivery and I... More
