Review of Basico

Basico
Ranked #23 of 112 Restaurants in Holbox Island
Price range: US$4 - US$26
Description: Located at the main street just one block away from the sea, this place is a must stop. It will delight all your senses. Our cuisine proposal in mexican contemporary fused with oriental ingredients to accomplish a unique and original blend. Our cocktail's mixology was designed specifically for each drink mixing spiced and fruits. We blend our own syrups to achieve a unique taste. We have 15 cocktails listed on our menu, sometimes our mixologist will whip up something new in the spur of the moment and we will only have it available at that time. Our music is based on a tropical mood. We designed a playlist for each moment of the day according to the position of the sun. At night we sometimes have disco house DJ's. We have a great bar and very comfortable arm chairs and tables for bigger parties or for those seeking a complete restaurant ambiance.

The decor was fresh and the vibe in there was chill. They had cool music playing the special menu cocktails were delicious. I had a the dry noodle tacos done with a vegetarian substitution for the chorizo and it was really good. The fritters were also tasty. They had quac on the menu with toasted locus that sounded unappetizing. The people I was with were not vegetarians and they spoke highly of the shrimp tacos and the shredded pork tacos.

Basico is a cool & more modern restaurant on the island. The decor is great and the service is full of smiles when you come in. Highly recommend getting any of the juices on the menu for breakfast, very fresh & great price!

My boyfriend also ordered the french toast, which was topped with fresh berries. The restaurant is just one block from the beach, so a great place to stop at on your way!

one of the few good ones in holbox, nice for late lunch (kitchen opens 17:00) or late cocktail. Owner guy we've met is very friendly and helpful, waiter girls are beautiful and does a good job.

Excellent food, totally fresh with herbs and spices. We found mexican cusine rather simple on the island. So big thumps up for this place. Great Service, too. Keep going. We might come back for a 3rd time.

Wow. Tried this place the day before we are leaving. We had cocktails and lunch and both were great. No, the food is not great, it is faboulous. Lounge music sets a really cozy atmosphere and the staff are very kind and on their toes. They speak good english too. If we had tried this place earlier we would have come back. They take credit cards. An unusually trendy place for Holbox Island
