“Sea food at its varieties.”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Had a departmental dinner at the restaurant of a wednesday evening. The ambience was enough to make us forget the terrible traffic on that day. Loved the King prawns and stir fry. The sauce was spicy but a little salty. They have a good range of drinks and the service was great.

“Fun and yummy fish and chips!”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Expect fish and chips and other fried seafood.

I saw mixed reviews on TripAdvisor, but this restaurant was recommended by colleagues residents of Lagos. Ocean Basket offers a great variety of sea food and side dishes. They also have mixed platters to share within groups.

Seating inside with a/c or on the upper floor patio with fans. We chose the latter and it was perfect!

Great evening, great food, good staff!

“As always!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

My first encounter with Ocean Basket was in Cape Town, South Africa, I believe it is the same company. It was awesome then. Victoria Island in Lagos... well... what do you think? It was awesome too! The service, the food, the people, the place... c'est bon. You cannot fault them because they are located on one of the most expensive or should I say the richest places in Lagos. Well, I do not know about others but can only speak for my self... I went to the place at night. I loved the ambiance and the arrangements. The fact that I had three options concerning where to sit, inside in the air-conditioned restaurant, or up on the roof top amidst some nice breeze from the ocean or down outside under the 'umbrella'. I was impressed by the quality of food served and the generosity of the lady who served. Overall I loved the place and can't wait to go again!

“Ok, can be better”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Oceanbasket dishes out good food, problem is consistency in taste like the over-salted and sometimes bland seafood, otherwise this would be very good. Still, it's a nice place to have seafood in Lagos.
