About
Basil ("Basilico"), through time and in many cultures is considered a symbol of love, wealth and protection. A name that family Petousis chose to call their own restaurant, with care and love to all details from the food to the environment that you are seated. Eleni the chef of the restaurant-but first of all mother- with her experience of 25 years, joined knowledge with her two sons Kostas and Thodoris so that you taste at "Basilico" traditional greek flavours with fresh ingredients of Lefkada and Greece. We hope you enjoy your time at "Basilico" and we are here to give you tastes and many memories of Greece. Sincerely, Petousis family

My wife and i decided to visit Basilico restaurant baset on a google search: best restaurant in NIdri. We were not disapointed! In fact we were extremely susprised. Everything was perfect, the food , the serving, prices are decent , the atmosphere, the waiters make...YOU feel good , they make YOU laugh. YOU are the most important, YOU will feel right a t home in that place. I had Kleftiko and my wife had Aubergine Saganaki, both wonderfull.For desert : orange pie(Portokalopita). We will return here for sure!More

We had a reasonable meal here, service was quite slow but there was 9 of us, food was OK, I had the lamb chops, tasty but a little fatty. It was nice but wouldn't return as there are so many fabulous restaurants to go to...in Nidri.More

This was intended to be the best meal during our vacation (based on Tripadvisor reviews), but it was actually the worst. We started of with two appetisers, which were really nice. We order our mains, fish for the lady, and some sort of meat for...me (recommended by the waiter as the best thing on the menu). What we got was good fish with uncooked vegetables as side (raw potato, carrots,..) and completely fatty meat strips drenched in Jack Daniels sauce (which seemed to be some sort of sweet syrup) with some fried French Fries. We complained to the waiter and afterwards we did not need to pay for the meat (which is the reason for the extra star). Overall I would not recommend this restaurant, you can find much better alternatives in Nydri.More

We enjoyed wonderful grilled seabream with steamed veggies and a succulent Greek salad (their bread rolls were delicious particularly when dipped into the aromatic olive oil mixed with the salad juices). Petros, Nontas and Nikos were amazing, hospitality at its best! Friendly and welcoming. People...of Leukada (and Ioannina) are the best! We got a delicious little sweet treat at the end, mixed berries cheesecake! Totally worth it!More

Ate here late one evening. The food was very good but didn’t have some of the ‘extras’ that some other restaurants do - we had to order pittas for our tzatziki where other restaurants have bread. That’s just an observation rather than a criticism as...the price was still reasonable. There was a very large group dining at the same time as us and this meant that there was a delay to receiving our pittas - however the head waiter did spot this and got it rectified. ‘Stuff’ happens but when it does, good service is getting it rectified.More

I literally had an orgasm. And then they even brought a free Homemade crazy delicious desert. My mind is blown and I will go home and dream about eating more of the salmon pasta. Petros, I love you!! 😍

A wonderful find on the port of Nidri- excellent service and the best food of the holidays so far. Simply spectacular! Delicious starters and sublime fish dishes. A must visit if you are in the area.

Basilico came as a recommendation from marino. From the first moment i stepped foot in the restaurant, Everyone was really pleasant and acoomodating towards me and it is always nice to be pampered like that when you visit a place for the first time so...it really felt nice! Everything was well organised from the menus all the way up to the hygiene levels that were kept really high. The night went on very well with exceptionally good tasting food, good service and a very pleasant non intrusive atmosphere with people enjoying themselves in every table and having a great dinner experience. Would highly recommend and will visit again next time i make port in Nydri. Thank you Petros for beeing so friendly!More

This is one of those restaurants where they seem to spend more energy on recruiting customers than on the quality of food or service. I had the grilled haloumi as a starter (which was OK) and the fried octopus as a main course (not so...good - the batter had mostly separated from the octopus and the dish was quite tasteless). What irritated me was that the main course was served while I wasn't even halfway through my starter - and I am not a slow eater! The only option was to take the main course away and keep it heated until I was ready - which does nothing to improve the quality of the food, so I opted not to. To be fair, Basilico is not the only restaurant in Nydri that has problems with timing the main course, but it is still poor service and it quite ruined my dining experience. On the positive side, the restaurant is beautifully situated in the harbour, and the decor is nice.More
