We recently ate here twice during our stay in Mogan. The staff were always very friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent and we were spoilt for choice with the menu. The paella and steak with roquefort sauce went down a treat and all dishes are beautifully presented. We shared starters are they were delicious, especially the croquettes, squid and garlic mushrooms. Two lovely evenings spent here.

We originally went to Mogan specifically for the beach and casito meditarraneo which we had read so many good reviews for. When we got there, casito was closed and we were urged into basil by a lady who seemed eager for our service but once we sat in, her mood changed drastically once she presented us menus and we realised we were not keen on the menu. We started on their smoothies and cakes, which were not great and once she noticed we were ordering from these, she got standoffish even removing the wifi details from our table. At five euros a smoothie and six euros a cake, you would not expect such snobbish behaviour but that is exactly what we got. We later moved onto pancakes which we were told were five euros a plate. We enjoyed our pancakes with fresh strawberries but by this time the vibe was undeniably horrible. At one point, she also ignored our order probably still upset. Once the bill came, we noticed that half of the prices she quoted were all wrong. Eight euros per pancake is fine if you are told beforehand not tricked into thinking its five euros.
I would say that Basil is probably more for couples trying to impress each other and experience the stunning port views.

Ate here on a recent trip to Peurto de Mogan the food was very good. We both had a prawn salad, it was nice and fresh and beautifully presented. A couple of beers and a coffee. A really lovely lunch.

Ate lunch here on a Sunday, busy but not packed. The service was prompt and efficient.
We had a mixed Tapas plate which contained about five different items. The fish croquettes were nice, as were the pieces of fish but the peppers were rather dry and rubbery. Most items were deep fried which gave everything a slightly greasy feel.
Quite pricey for what you get.
I wouldn't avoid it but think there are better places in Puerto de Mogan

The food was great which justified the price. Even though they were busy we felt no pressure to move on and vacate our table. Basil himself served our fish at the table in a professional way but we both commented that his state of dress didn't quite fit the up market atmosphere of the restaurant.
