So good to have a dedicated seafood restaurant here in Lagos. A nice selection of fish, shrimp, calamari and mussels to satisfy any sea food enthusiast. Would love to see lobster in the near future but so far so good. No complaints!

Not bad for Lagos. Atmosphere is good, food is as good as being back in PTA. Very good job so far - let's see you sustaining it.

I hold my hands up and say "Yippeee" in all honesty.

I'm addicted to this chain of restaurants which I first encountered in South Africa. My fear of visiting the Lagos Ocean Basket was that they would't stay true to the brand and (as often happens in this great country of ours) they would severely hike up the prices and Naija-fy the menu. They. Did. Not!

This fab restaurant has a capacity for about 200, the food tastes every bit as good as I would have expected anywhere, has friendly staff, great wines and embodies the Ocean Basket ethos of fun, affordability and TASTE!

The quantities are generous (and as I'm a girl that likes her food- this was Very important!), and the management's super friendly to boot!

If you want a pleasant surprise don't just take my word for it- try Ocean basket in Lagos for yourself.

(and no they didn't have to bribe me for this review- they just fed me!)
