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.

I'm a fan of the Oceanbasket restaurant chain. I visit at every opportunity. So my trip to Zambia was made complete by our lunch here after we visited the Victoria falls. The food was exactly what you expect from Ocean Basket - fresh, tasty seafood. I had Kingklip with prawns and calamari- all my favourite things! Service was great too!... More

The food was great, prepared well and the wait for our food wasn't long either(70% full restaurant). The manager/owner was extremely friendly and made us feel at home.

The food here is wonderful, with a very extensive menu. The outdoor dining room is delightful! The service is very attentive and you only need to ask if there is something you want. We went twice, once for dinner and once for dessert and late-night cocktails. An easy walk from many accommodations. The second time we went, it was nice... More
