This place is simply fantastic for a nice romantic dinner, the food is Fusion and tastes great, as usual in this restaurants portions are not big so you can try a couple of dishes and enjoy the atmosphere.

After reading few reviews, we expected it to be class restaurant but the reviews were misleading. Inside a building, a hall converted into a restaurant with congested seating. The ceiling is made to look like old curved- semi dome type. There is a bar which is a must in any European restaurant. The food portions are very small- gourmet type... More

We selected one of the Special Menus and were very pleased with our choice. The manager has a thorough knowledge of wines and can offer some helpful... More

I have been coming to Hannover for many years, for professional reasons, tried quite a few different restaurants, and Basil is definitively at the top of my list as the very best! This was my third time in this restaurant and, strangely enough, I never picked from their menu as I was in... More
