Great fresh tasty food - good variety & fajitas altered for children ie less spicy. Amazing cocktails & churros.
Still our fav - 20 plus years later
Had an amazing meal, the fresh guacamole made at the table was a highlight along with the chilli con queso, unreal.
Lovely food and service at a very reasonable price. We will definately be back. Many thanks
Haven’t been to the basement for a couple of years. Was very disappointed. We were put into a small back area which was dark not very much room. Service was poor and we didn’t have a bottle of water brought to our table. We didn’t have the option to to lunch menu which another couple of people did get a bit later on. Previously the guacamole has been made at the table but we only asked if we wanted everything with it and was just brought to the table (we had to wait 30 mins for this!) Our mains then came shortly after. Food was not as good as it used to be and not really value for money. Don’t plan to be back
A great venu, lovely meal and really great table service. Will definately be back
Good atmosphere, music was a bit all over the shop, cocktails were delicious.
Friendly attentive staff,buzzy atmosphere and absolutely beautiful food .Highly recommended and we will definately book again next time we visit Edinburgh
Loved it great food, lovely atmosphere, welcoming staff xx
Great atmosphere, complimentary birthday drink and amazing food. Look forward to returning in the future.
Food was ok - but I would quite like enough guacamole to eat all the chips with - we were finished with about 3/4 of the chips left still to eat!
Great food, atmosphere and service. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends. Thank you
Great food great service and great ambiance Was so busy but never made yo feel that we were waiting too long. Staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble
Tasty food and good value with the 50% for January, maybe a bit pricey if paying full cost.
Friendly and fast service, well organised.
Great location in town, and free on street parking after 6:30 👍
Enjoyed the Sunday Sharer menu. Loved the food, it was tasty and fun. Ambience was lovely.
Staff and service were really nice and the server was keen to get feedback about the sharer menu, as it was new on the menu. Superb meal followed by live music.
Was seated straight away.
Size of the meals were explained so we knew what to order.
Food was delicious and very fresh.
Staff kept check if anything needed.
Overall I would highly recommend dining here.
Food was SO good, atmosphere great and the service was brilliant from every member of staff we came into contact with. Will definitely be back!
Seated in an alcove off the main bar, attentive service without being overpowering. Menu explained and food delicious!
Excellent food and service. Great selection of tequilas.
Great vibes. Great drinks. Great food. Got a good discount for January. Would 100% recommend and will be back when I’m not pregnant to try all that tasty tequila and staropramen on tap!
The fajitas were excellent, certainly was not a small portion. It has a nice atmosphere and is good value for money. Only criticism would be our table was very small and difficult to get everything on it.
great food, great beers, excellent bar area but the restaurant a little 'cosy' (squashed in beside other diners) which is fine if you're cool with that but not ideal if you like having your own space
Lovely food and very nice atmosphere. Really enjoyed it all.
Great atmosphere fantastic food and top class service. Would highly recommend this place
Food was great, staff became rude when there was an issue with the bill
Great food and great atmosphere. Staff very friendly and restaurant not too noisy even though there is a bar at the other side
Unfortunately there was a power cut so no lights in the ladies toilet. Delicious food and great value as 50% off
The rum sour cocktail and the mocktail I tried were both excellent. I loved the vegetarian Firecracker tacos, which were made with roasted Brussels sprouts and almonds. The posole soup was made with pinto beans and corn; I would have preferred hominy over corn, but the soup was still spicy and flavorful. There were no house-made salsas on New Year’s Day when we were there, but that may have been because of the holiday. The service was helpful and kind. The decor is artistic. The background music was lively but not excessively loud.
Plenty beef in the fajitas although not very spicy
Food was very tasty, spicy and different. We went for the small plates and found them very filling and probably picked one too much. Good choice of beers and wines and when other diners were due in, they found us another table to stay on so great service.
Excellent food and amazing value. The 2 for £12 brunch option is a winner. Very relaxed atmosphere and great staff. Will definitely be going back!
Lovely food..really helpful staff...good value for money
Fantastic service and food as always.
Waiters were friendly and great at advising on the menu.
A great meeting place with a tremendous atmosphere. There's a few Mexican themed restaurants in Edinburgh that seem to be ranked higher than the Basement, but if you want great tasting Tacos and a good selection of drinks, with brilliant service and atmosphere, then Id pick the Basement ahead of the others.
Food , staff and atmosphere was great , excellent value and authentic
The Basement does not disappoint. Food was outstanding, fajitas, nachos 1st class. Service was great.
Lovely lunch and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Love, love, love! Gorgeous food and at a great price!
Excellent service in the basement on Friday evening, fantastic atmosphere and service! Apologies forgotten waiters name, but made the worlds greatest Guac and kept the Tequila Flowing!
Exceptional food, good portions and really nice bar setting. Will definitely be back!
