Myself and my wife went for dinner with our three kids. From the very start we could not have been made feel more welcome. Our waiter spoke excellent English and looked after us very well. He suggested a selection of plates and took my son's peanut allergy into account. The food was fantastic; there was something for everybody. We would... More

We have been to this restaurant 4/5 times now and have never been disappointed, the menu is always inventive fresh and very tasty, the owner works the tables himself explaining the dishes and bonding with his guests, you need to book as he does not believe in turning tables for more profit at the expense of a down grading of...

A lovely environment in the relaxed Rufasa neighbourhood of Valencia. Owner/front of house was welcoming and spoke excellent English, which helped put us at ease. He made conversation, but was not too overbearing. We opted for the '5-plate' set menu - which was a delicious fusion of various foods of the world, including humous, salad, flat breads and a chicken... More

Ate here tonight and was really impressed with the service and the quality of food. The waiter (I think his name was Alex?) modified the menu for me and every dish was of fantastic quality. Will definitely be recommending basilico to my friends when they visit!

We tried out the five-course menu for dinner. Everything was really excellent and we were surprised that it was so good!

We just had a wonderful meal. The set menu was full of pleasant and varied flavours and the service even from the brand new waitress who had started this evening was attentive and so welcoming. The proprietor explained the menus so clearly and set the tone for a great evening.

A delight. One of the best restaurant experiences I have had in a long time. The food was exquisite - light, fresh with beautifully balanced flavours and textures and a fabulous change if you are getting tired of tapas and paella!. The menu, atmosphere, service and value are quite simply outstanding. If you are in Valencia, a must do (and... More

I have been living in Spain for 2 years and recently took visiting Australian and British friends to Basilico for dinner. It was a wonderful night! Superb food, atmosphere and service. We didn't have to think about what to eat as the menu was already prepared for us so we just sat back, relaxed and were served the most special... More

Most amazing food we had in a very long time. As a customer you can sense the passion for food of the owners. Arif is an extremely talented chef and you'll discover influences from all over the world in his dishes. Alex is a superfriendly host who passionately explains the menu making you crave for your choice even more. High... More
