Hi there!

I had no idea I was even going to write a single word about this place, I didn’t even bring my camera. My friend T-A (hey girl!) took us out for dinner while I was in Lagos. I was a bit nervous about coming to a sea food restaurant because I think sea food is OK. I’m not a massive fan of sea creatures other than fish (I’d eat fish all day everyday).

When I saw the decor though, and the rooftop space (which is apparently a thing on the island) I fell in love a bit. I had the “feesh and chips” which comes with a side of rice and so did T-A’s sister. T-A, the sea food queen had the platter for one and of course we nibbled at her stuff. I loved the calamari!

I hear there’s one in Ikeja as well. If you’re a sea food fiend, this is a great dinner/lunch spot. Customer service was great although I wish the food had come a teeny bit sooner.


The dips were fantastic! Ah.

Have you ever been to Ocean Basket? What did you think?

  • It looks quite cosy and homey. I’ve never been but i’ll definitely check it out when next I’m in the motherland.

    • Yes, do! It’s actually super cozy!

  • Kech

    It’ll be a perfect hangout spot for a date. I totally love the ambience.

  • I went to Ocean Basket some time on a double date last year. The food took a LONG while! But when it did come, it was alright. I’m not a huge fan of sea food so I wasn’t particularl excited as well

    • Yeah the wait was ridiculous and I was starving!

  • Looks nice!! I will be checking it out. I’ve been in Lagos for over a year now and ive still not explored restaurants. Shame on me!

    • You should visit more restaurants. Even though everything is super expensive. Sigh

  • The food looks yum

  • really nice
