Ocean Basket, a branch of a South African chain (one of the two in Zambia) is a bit pricy but very nice restaurant in the southern part of the town. You can have any kind of seafood you wish. The outdoor seating is very nice although quite close to the busy road.

If you want some decent sushi in Livingstone look no further than Ocean Basket. Southern African chain restaurant. Affordable.

I can only speak for my own food which I enjoyed ( fish and chips ) but others in the group had mixed reviews . no sushi available when we were there and the prawns not available either , apparently we were there at the wrong time of day . Others had been before and said it was usually good

Ocean Basket Livingstone The place has ample parking, the starters of Greek salad and Grilled Halumi were good. We were a table of 12, the starters came out fast. The mains took a little while longer, that's was partly due to us delaying to get the orders in. Sushi was fair, the calamari tubes on flat top grill were tasty.... More

Last night we enjoyed an evening at OB. The seafood was great, my Son and I shared a platter and both thought it was awesome. Top effort considering the location in a landlocked country.

Thank heeepo
