Only popped in for a hot chocolate to heat up after a walk on the beach. Had a bowl of double cooked chips and they were amazing, crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. Yummy. Went back a second time, just for the chips. The staff and friendly and so are the other customers. Dog friendly too.

Smashing little place, right on the harbour, great for boat lovers, right next door to the sailing club. We have been for breakfast, Tapas, and loads in between The food is excellent and service really good. The Tapas were very good, although to get a decent meal you do have to spend a bit, the portions aren't that big. The... More

This continues to be a gem, great staff, great food, great feeling and I'll be back. The specials board is always changing, the basic menu is great, the home baking first class, the atmosphere is lively and most pleasurable. This is an all round great place and they, the staff, are doing everything right. Well recommended, I can't complement them... More

I went on a night out with colleagues from work for a night of "tapas" I had never had tapas before so was a bit dubious about what was going to be presented to me. Well........ I was more than amazed at how wonderful they were. We ordered a selection from the menu (to be honest we ordered just about... More

Booked for the Tapas last Saturday night and was not disappointed !! Very authentic food, and great value for money. If Tapas is you thing, you wont get anything like it in the area, especially at these prices .

Stopped at the cafe on the harbor at Nairn for an after golf snack. Sandwich was decent and cokes were canned. It's a little crowded inside but staff was friendly. Recommended by the harbor master as the best spot nearby.

Popped in here on the spur of the moment and as if it was meant to be. First impression was a bog standard café that has seen better days but immediately was welcomed by staff and customers of all ages. Had a great bowl of Cullen Skink which was large by comparison to most and served with ciabatta and butter.... More

We have walked the dog on Nairn beaches many times but don't often end up at the harbour. But on a sunny September morning and in need of a coffee we stumbled across this place. I had a breakfast which was very tasty. Sauces, jam, marmalade, all brought to the table without having to ask - the way it should... More

If you want good cafe food in a pleasant location then look no further than Basil Harbour Cafe. The menu varies and the specials are great too. If you like chips then these are simply the best. Food is fresh prepared and good value for money.
