Nice spot for a relaxed casual brunch. Friendly helpful staff, good choices on menu.
Very friendly and efficient staff, good table (booth) and doggy friendly. Only slight issues were the saltimboca was quite oily and the liqueur measures were very small - usually you get a full shot glass of limoncello or sambucca but the glass was only about a third full. Otherwise, excellent.
This was the second time we were in Basils in two weeks. we went back because the food was so good the first time and we took different friend with us. We weren’t disappointed and neither were our friends. The menu is not massive but everything we tried was cooked to perfection. The Lemon posset has been described as the best pudding they have ever had! The prices are very reasonable and the staff very attentive and friendly. We will be back again soon even though we live in South Yorkshire!
Good food and great service. Will definitely visit again. If I had an issue it would be that the restaurant is a bit cold.
Great food and clean premises. Staff were friendly and would come back again.
Excellent food, attentive staff. Will definitely go back.
Starter and desert was ok but both of the mains was dissapointing.
Lamb burger was very dry and overcooked which is shame for a good burger. Seabass had lack of seasoning, and noodles which have been served with seabass was drowning in oil and fat
Great food, service and surroundings. We went back for breakfast a few days later and that was good as well!
The Sunday Roast was amazing!!! Great yorkshire puds and nice portion size. We'll be back for sure!
Lovely food, friendly staff, nice pale rose and good company. What more could you want from an evening?
What a great wee place to eat and drink . Service spot on and food is delicious . They couldn’t do enough for you and were great with us having the dog with us too .
Very nice food. Just a pity it was served on cold plates.
Great service and atmosphere! Overall food was nice if a bit salty? Mixed share starter platter was a bit greasy and cauliflower fritters very greasy and tasteless! Chicken wings not great either, ribeye steak cooked perfectly medium but quite flabby, sesame sea bass very tasty and well cooked but extremely hot, lovely place great staff made up for slight food let down, will go again but try something different.
Great place and good value for money. Will definitely go back when next in Edinburgh
I decided to have a starter and main course so had the spicy chicken wings and half haddock and chips. The wings were beautifully cooked and tasted delicious and the haddock at £5 was excellent, the batter was the best I have experienced.
The food was amazing recommend the cauliflower fritters. Steak was cooked to perfection and the staff were very attentive. Will be back
Staff very friendly and efficient food was delicious. Vegetarian in the group was happy with the choices for her so even better. Some other places still don’t cater well for her so we will definitely go back to Basil’s. Price was also very reasonable and value for money.
Everything about Basils was wonderful. I will definitely be back and be sure to recommend this great wee place.
Food was excellent and the service was superb! Will definitely be back there sooner rather than later.
Very good food at a great price! All the food we had was fantastic, not a single thing let us down! Enjoyed the atmosphere and the service! Will be back soon to try more dishes!
Excellent food and service. We would of liked to stay longer but because the booking are tight because of covid we couldn’t. Maybe next time, we would highly recommend
Good food, nice atmosphere, good service, will definitely be back!
Very good value, enjoyed our freshly cooked meal.
We will definitely return
Food delicious, service excellent, thank you. We will be back soon. Ruth
Good food, good service and will be going back for more!
Our waiter was on a trial shift and was so lovely patient and sweet x
We both had French toast one with bacon and the other with vegetarian haggis. Both plates cleared, the food was so good. We both ordered latte coffees which were served in glass tumblers!! Not a good idea!! We are both pensioners and I have a hand tremor which made lifting the hot glass extremely difficult,and,in my case extremely dangerous! However when I asked the server to change the glass for cups it was dealt with immediately!! Full marks for that! The coffee was all milk practically which spoiled it.
Fantastic food and service.
Tried “Basils” just by chance and couldn’t believe what a wonderful evening we had so we went back the following evening.
The food was fresh and cooked perfectly, the service was friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend you give Basils a try you won’t be disappointed.
Lovely food, good service and good value for money
Great food, reasonably priced and a very nice service. Happy to see so many dogs!
100% would return again! Lovely staff and brilliant value of food.
The food was nice, staff were friendly and the restaurant was well kitted out
Love this place so much, everyone so friendly and good service
Second time visiting and we’ll definitely come back. Small menu but everything is tasty. Service is friendly and efficient and they were so accommodating with the dogs.
Cannot recommend enough! Staff were friendly and attentive, surroundings were delightful and we felt safe. Food was excellent! Can’t wait to go back.
Service and food was good…staff were pleasant , knowledgable and helpful
Would come again when return to Edinburgh
We enjoyed our meal at Basils very much. Hamburger was excellent, and the aubergine and halloumi parmigiana was a bit salty but enjoyable.
Nice little restaurant. Food very nice and good value. Service was excellent with friendly waitresses.
5 of usall ordered different meals, burgers were cooked perfectly as was fish & chips. However, Aubergine was overcooked & rubbery, dish it came in was burnt around the top with cheese burnt & stuck to sides, not a good dish tbh.
Drinks, cleanliness & friendly staff were all positives.
Good for stopping off for drinks & bites.
Great food comes hot & fresh every time iv been there great friendly staff & great to sit outside *
