The food was really good. They do seafood only, no meats. Its got really well appointed indoor seating as well as outdoors seat with huge fan blowing chilled air during the afternoons to make the hot air bearable.

Ocean basket has a great reputation in SA, we were more than happy to hear of their arrival to LAGOS.. When we visited the SA team was there training.. The head guy from SA whom was on seat to open the back was great. The service was awesome... Went back again, and the service was not as good as when the head honcho was around and had them on their P and Q´s... The wait was long.. I really enjoyed the calamari salad. The king klip needed lacked taste.. It is a good addition to Lagos eateries. It still needs improvement.

I was quite excited to take my family out for lunch on arrival we were told by the gatemen to return in an hour on a late Sunday afternoon, this was not great. We were not even allowed into the restaurant.

2 weeks later we ventured again because we heard the food was amazing. The food is ok, but took over an hour to arrive! Service was poor as well.

Will I go back? Maybe if I'm craving seafood

lovely place...
Staff are really nice, they know what service means.
I gave it a 4 out of 5 cos my order came late(40mins). Im sure they had a little mix up cos other guests that placed their orders after i did received theirs before mine, so i had to call the supervisors attention.
Overall a really nice place to go for a dinner date. Looking forward to my next visit, hoping i dont get to wait so long for my order.
