Great Sea food spread

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... read 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

I have visited a couple of times, and it is a really good option for expats. Nice view and and the food is really good. The problem are the flies on the balcony, more annoying when drop in your beer, but this is the average, and in any case really good food.

Excellent options for seafood lovers abound at the Ocean Basket. Thoroughly enjoyed my time and meal there. Basically the same quality as what you will get from an Ocean Basket outlet in South Africa. Lots of space and sitting in and outdoors. Recommended for seafood lovers.
