Ocean Basket, the Mediterranean style seafood restaurant hailing from Pretoria, South Africa has opened its second Dubai location in Circle Mall, Jumeirah Village Circle. Already popular amongst seafood lovers, the restaurant brings the spirit and taste of the ocean on a plate.
Being a seafood specialist for over two decades, Ocean Basket’s story began in 1995 by two brothers who saw an opportunity in offering great quality seafood within a reasonable price range. Ever since, Ocean Basket saw immense growth and now have close to two hundred restaurants worldwide in seventeen countries including two in Dubai, the first one prominently located at Mirdif City Centre.
Most of Ocean Basket’s menu items are served hot straight from the grill into a pan or long metal platter; no fuss, just scrumptious seafood served ready to be shared created with secret house blend spices that provide the perfect balance between salt and spice, and special sauces to complement the flavors of the ocean. Their menu consists of specialty items such as Hake fish, the famous Fish & Chips dish, prawns, and calamari served with special buttery, rich flavors, as well as other delicious fish options made with simple, fresh, quality ingredients served with their signature creamy lemon sauce such as their seabream platter that comes grilled or fried. Signature dishes come with a sharing spirit where a family party or a party of two can enjoy options of prawns, calamari, fish fillet, mussels alongside a selection of side dishes such as buttered rice, Greek side salad, panko zucchini, and other sides to choose from. Guests get to enjoy a range of freshly made mocktails to go with their meal of seafood love.
A passion for food and a Mediterranean lifestyle where a meal sitting down with family and friends is at the forefront of Ocean Basket’s brand identity, the people of Dubai will now get to experience a relaxed “home away from home” seafood experience with their loved ones sharing plates from the freshness of the sea with lots of laughter and taste buds that will surely be satisfied.
