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.

Good Seafood

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.

The best I visited here in Lagos. Same named restaurant as I enjoyed seafoods in Capetown last year, but no confirmed the franchised restaurant or not. Anyway very recommendable seafood restaurant where you may taste fresh grilled fish, fried potatoes, caramali, etc. But vegetables and wines not satifying me.

They have variety of seafood waiting on you to request. Though you might have to wait a while to get this into your mouth but it sure is worth the wait. Seafood ranging from Calamari, shrimps, snails, fish, etc. They even make Sushi........at very affordable cost too!

Both the service and food was great. It was a bit noisy when I was last there due to construction work going on next door, but that should be finished by now.

Its a lovely place to hang out with friends, they've got great sea food platters with a good variety of sea food and fries as well Tucked away in Victoria Island,this restaurant has a roof top sit out ,so if you don't want to be cooped up,you have the choice to eat upstairs in the open.

I went for dinner with my mother, sisters and our daughters. I have been to Ocean Basket a number of times. I like the food and the way it is presented. The restuarant is neat and the waiters are polite and friendly.
