Ocean Basket Melrose Arch is owned by Paul Fagas. Paul opened the store 12 years ago, but has over 20 years’ experience in the restaurant industry. The restaurant is situated in Melrose Arch in Johannesburg & overlooks the square.

We serve a variety of seafood dishes as well as some Greek dips, salads and sushi. There are platters and combos to suite everyone and a kiddies menu is also available.


Some of the favourite dishes are our mussels in a creamy garlic sauce, our prawns (which are always a winner and available in different sizes), the calamari (which is soft & tender and enjoyed by all) and our decadent desserts! The classic Baklava or Kataifi are Greek classics but our New York Baked Cheesecake & Mississippi Mud Pie are also to die for.

There is a Sushi Bar situated within the restaurant to make all your favourite’s. We also accommodate our clients for functions such as Christenings, Baptisms, Birthdays, Baby Showers, Year-end’s etc., with a private upstairs area if required.


The restaurant interior is beautiful, and tranquil. There are natural tones, warm rosewood finishes with a splash of colour. You get a relaxed, holiday feeling accompanied by friendly faces and of course amazing food.

There is a lovely outside seating area which is under trees & overlooking the square. The centre, with its garden setting and big trees, has very much an outdoor look and a feeling of being away from the daily chaos of life… so come, relax and enjoy with us.
