Even before our order was taken, I was struck by the very warm welcome we received as soon as we stepped in. We were quickly ushered to our seats and, with an engaging smile, Blessing informed us that she would be taking care of us. She lived up to her words, going through the menu and making useful suggestions. She... More

This is a very refreshing place to eat when you want a break from local cuisine. It is not a proper sea food restaurant in that I'm not convinced the fish is not frozen. The first time we visited the ikeja branch the food was awesome, I especially enjoyed the fresh salad. The service was also very good attentive without... More

Years ago (2013,) I went to an Ocean Basket in Johannesburg and didn't quite enjoy it. So I was somewhat skeptical about eating at this spot when I met with some friends for dinner. My doubts were immediately erased once I got my platter for one. Jumbo shrimp, calamari, mussels, fresh fish, it was seafood paradise. I'm not typically used... More

This is the best seafood place I have seen in Lagos. Tucked inside the Ikeja mall. The environment is appropriate for a business meet. Lot of food choices. Will definitely visit again

My partner and i tend to Restaurant hop a lot, so this was one of our "hopping" spots. We had passed it by a lot of times but decided to give it a shot and we didn't regret it. It was very nice, lovely ambience, clean and great service! The chef came to ask us if we loved the food... More

Unfortunately, tI me, the best thing about ocean basket are the staff. Super enthusiastic and quite well trained. The drinks are fab but to me (and I think it's just me), the food is average. If I wanted to eat out, Ocean basket wouldn't be my first choice. It's just me because I have 2 lady friends who just love... More

Visited Ocean Baskets location at Ikeja mall for a date with my spouse. The outlets ambience was amazing with a bit of music. Staff were pleasant though not too coordinated. Ordered two shakes in between my meal but and the second one came in a tad too late which wasn't desirable at all. I had mains of prawns and fries.... More

excellent and tasty sea food for a very reasonable price. I was truly so satisfied from what I ate that I could not believe it. I came here on the night of my birthday with my Fiancé and my cousin and we ordered about three plates of food which were so delectable and well priced. I also order a strawberry... More

We had the Platter for two. We don't eat Mussels so ask for a substitute, but not sure what was given if anything. The fish was great and the shrimp were good. The calamari was just going over the the rubbery side. The Calamari heads were missing (out of stock) and the chips were soggy. The good thing was the... More
