Relaxing position overlooking the harbour with seating inside and out as well as an ice cream kiosk.The cafe is very small and intimate but serves a varied range of fantastic food.This includes...

Went to Basil's last night (Saturday) as it had been recommended to us. The food was great. As we were there on a Saturday night, we had food from the tapas menu. Couldn't fault any of it. We ordered 9 of the tapas dishes, all of which were fantastic. Would definately go again. Was a nice place to just sit... More

Our regular annual outing to Basils took place over the last couple of weekends. We lunched this Saturday where I enjoyed their mackerel fish cakes and my wife had the omelette. We returned with grandkids in tow on Sunday morning for breakfast and I enjoyed a lorne and bacon roll. Everyone had the breakfast. Nice staff, great coffee and wonderful... More

Went with husband and 11 month old. A Small cafe but a big welcome. Very friendly staff, good food and excellent menu choices. So nice to go to a seaside cafe and have something other than chips! I had a pepper and halloumi panini, my husband had bacon, eggs and toast. The staff were very helpful to a blind customer... More

Thank you for a really great evening. The food was delicious & service spot on, as always. Plus you made it a terrific fun night with your good nature despite all of us noisy women. Thanks again, we'll be back.

We have visited here a few times now and on each occasion have found the food to be fresh, tasty and reasonable value. The coffee is really good too. The staff are also friendly and happy to have a chat. We didn't feel rushed. It is also child friendly. The only negatives are it's quite small and gets busy so... More

This is a small but busy café/bistro on the harbour front. Our group (3 adults and 2 young children) enjoyed soups, sandwiches, toasted Panini, poached egg and beans and all were freshly cooked and most enjoyable. The Cullen skink would be well worth a return visit on its own. Service was friendly and efficient, prices reasonable.
