The food is ok, the service consistent. The salads are dreadful - really need some good salads to eat with seafood.

Food was fresh and fast, staff were helpful, we were allowed to order from the 2 restaurants next door or Ocean Basket, which makes this ideal for large or diverse groups. Staff were nice to children too.

Contrary to some of these other reviews, I have actually had pretty good experiences at Ocean Basket. Yes, originally I didn't know why there was a seafood restaurant in landlocked Zambia, but chains are everywhere! I went here mainly because of its proximity to my hotel (Protea).

My colleague and I felt that the calamari three-ways was outstanding, and it definitely surprised us. I did not try the prawns, but those looked good at well. The service was friendly each time I ate here, and the place was rarely "empty," so the atmosphere was good. Being next to Rhapsody's can make a meal at Ocean Basket a little loud, but it's not too bad.

Overall, I would recommend Ocean Basket, particularly the calamari.
