We revisited this restaurant as last time we ate at basils we had a most enjoyable meal. The restaurant is cosy, the food is well prepared and tasty,and the service was attentive without being intrusive. The owner (Lindsay) was very hospitable we will certainly return.

Food was incredible & we are fussy! You get an amazing personal service, it felt like we were the only people in the restaurant and they made our stay memorable.

I dropped in, was warmly greeted. The restaurant is charming, nicely decorated and clean. As a veggie I was delighted to find several options. The portions were not only tasty but extremely generous. Basils is another Ilfracombe gem.

Turned up at Basils on a cold and wet Monday night in late October...primarily because no-where else was open. Glad we made the effort though. Lovely food, good flavours, good presentation and service too. The Thai curry could have been a little spicier I was promised 'a bit of a bite' but the cod and chorizo fishcake was superb.

Popped in after seeing my grandchildren for the first time.

The service was excellent - a lady who really wanted us to feel at home

The menu had something for everybody - meat, fish, vegetarian

The food was truly excellent - a Devonian slant on old favourites (the mussels and Lamb were divine)

The wine selection was interesting and varied - including a white wine from Devon (a real "in-your-face" job - excellent)

AND - we met Basil!! A truly lovely old-ish black Labrador

It really doesn't get better than this unless you are looking for haute cuisine and even then I would rate Basil's very highly

We were there in mid/late October. The restaurant is quite small so can imagine it would be a very good idea to book at busy times
