Excellent service and food as always
The food was very good, as was the service. Very pleasant and helpful staff.
First time pop in.
Julia, the Spanish waitress was so helpful and attentive that the whole experience deserves 5 star rate
The cauliflower fritters are amazing! I travel all the way for East Lothian for them - buffalo sauce fabulous too!
Lovely food well presented. My only slight negative was that I asked for extra parmesan on my risotto and was told there would be a 50p charge. However overall nothing really to complain about
Great service, quality of food, good atmosphere and value for money - very impressed and will be back.
Great food and fabulous portions..
I was unable to eat a pudding…or have a coffee….
Lovely staff and well worth a visit or 2/3
We booked a table after looking at the menu online and hadnt checked the location so we we're a bit worried to discover the resturant is based a little way out of the center of Edinburgh but it was well worth making our way over there as the food was fantastic! And it's actually just a quick hop on a bus away. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff very friendly and helpful, we all really enjoyed our overall experience at Basils. We will definitely visit again if we are ever back in Edinburgh!
Offered a table next to kitchen however asked to be moved and this wasn’t a problem. Nice food, nice portions, extremely nice staff. Would use again
Excellent food and drink and brilliant service. Will be back
A great little restaurant in the Newhaven area if Edinburgh. Staff are supper friendly and very helpful. Food is excellent they also do a fabulous brunch/breakfast menu and a great drinks selection Love this place think you would as well
A good restaurant with good food and polite staff. I visited with my daughter and we enjoyed our experience and my daughter has said she will eat there again.
A great restaurant in Newhaven, extremely tasty food for amazing value. Staff were attentive and polite. Lovely atmosphere and ambience inside too. Will definitely be back. The crab and chorizo macaroni was insanely good!
This is a small informal restaurant, the staff are very friendly and helpful. They ate sticking closely to the Covid rules and have divided the tables with plastic screens. The wines are good and reasonably priced, and the food is delicious. We all chose the Sunday lunch option on this visit, which was an absolute treat.
Lovely brunch at Basils with very helpful and attentive staff.
Very nice quiet restaurant with good food at reasonable prices - also caters well for dairy and gluten allergies. Very helpful staff. Enjoyed it so much that went back the following morning for brunch! It’s very near Newhaven harbour and very convenient for the nearby Premier Inn - possibly a bit out of the way otherwise but would recommend.
10/10 - delicious food, brilliant cocktails and great atmosphere!
Nice premises, clean and inviting. Attentive staff when required. Lovely food but disappointed that there was a few items that were unavailable or sold out .
My partner would have liked another slice of beef with his sunday roast / couple more roast potato's
Wonderful evening. Best rib eye had in a long time. Sticky toffee pudding very light and tasty too. Great asset to Newhaven. Staff friendly and efficient. Looking forward to returning.
Loved it. Staff were very very pleasant, burger was delicious. Will be back
Thank you 😊
Excellent all round. Good food and excellent value. Would definitely recommend basils.
We had a lovely meal at Basils and would thoroughly recommend a visit. We had our wee dog with us and it’s child & dog friendly. We were running late, as we did not realise the lower road was closed, we phoned them and they said it was no problem they would hold our table. Excellent customer service from all the team. Thanks
First time at Basil’s.Nice relaxed ambience, busy but not noisy.No problem chatting in our group of 5.We had shared starters.Generous servings.Cauliflower fritters were yummy.Main meals were reasonably priced and plenty of choices.All in all a good experience and will go again.
Food and service were excellent and very good value for money. Would definitely go again.
I loved this restaurant I went with a friend on a Tuesday evening and we had a fantastic time. The team were absolutely lovely. Service and atmosphere were spot on and the food was great. I’d highly recommend going.
Excellent food. Enjoyed the veggie breakfast. Fresh toast with bacon was also good.
everything was lovely and service was great, a young lady on her own for a while managed so well without panicking and was so polite amazing service
Good food, lamb burger excellent, great value. Good service and chill atmosphere.
Very nice meal friendly staff clean venue quite area,
Basil's offers excellent value for money. Many similar establishments charge £14 or £15 for a burger or fish and chips. Its £10 in Basil's and the quality is very good.
Fantastic menu, cauliflower fritters were amazing and the brutalist burger was great! very helpful friendly staff
So glad i came across this wee gem. Had a lovely brunch date and our servers couldn't be more helpful without being overbearing. Will definitely be back especially for that French toast 😍
Visited here for my aunts 60th Birthday and we were not disappointed. Service was great, food was lovely and the place had a really nice atmosphere. If you go be sure to try the cauliflower in hot sauce and calamari, both delicious!
Good food and prompt service from staff when required
Spur of moment decision great choice staff helpful and attentive without being over the top food was lovely cauliflower fritters big enough to be a main course next time might skip starter and try a desert
friendly staff, excellent food and generous portions, would definitely recommend and visit again
Staff were very helpful and friendly
Service was very good, checked we had everything without being over enthusiastic.
Excellent food, good portion size and hot. Good menu catered for all of our dietary requirements.
Outstanding food - the falafel burger was delicious. I asked for lots of changes to my dish, which was done without issue.
Lovely, friendly service.
The sticky toffee pudding was to die for!
Friendly, helpful staff. Interesting, varied menu which is reasonably priced. Generous, well presented portions. Eaten in Basils prior to lockdown in the afternoon and never been disappointed. First visit this year, in the evening and standards still high. Will remain on my list of places to go.
