We had been the previous year and again this time it didn't disappoint. Pleasant staff with nice food. The only gripe is that the staff congregate at the front of the restaurant which can be off putting if you are sat there.

We really loved this place and went a couple of times. Service is fine, the food is fresh and well cooked. Also it's nicely situated from the rush of the crowds further up

Friendly staff, good menu. Decided to try the Moussaka was really good, followed by the stuffed grilled Calamari, excellent washed down with a carafe of white wine. Very relaxing evening, even the rsin could not spoil this meal. Would recommend this restuarant.

Having been in the area for a couple of weeks, you find all of the tavernas have a very, very similar menu. You can get a bit bored of this, but this was one of the better places in terms of the food. The location...More

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
