Description: 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

This restaurant is by far the best in Nidri, excellent food, excellent staff, excellent service. Much better than the other restaurants on the front. Seabass was lovely, even the house wine tastes so much better than other local restaurants.

Great place with good food and service. Right at the port of Nidri, facing the boats and the gulf. Best tsadziki so far. We also took mixed sea food for two and it was huuuge, super delicious and fresh.

There are so many restaurants along this strip so how to choose ? Great customer service the owner really connects with the customers and passers by - good clue ! We enjoyed the aubergine warm starter and mains of squid and grilled shrimps fairly priced well presented and delicious. Complimentary desserts as well .

We have tried a few places along the front over the last few days and this is the first that has lived up to expectations. Looks so clean, with a well loved feel. The menu is not as extensive as others but is beautifully presented. Other look scruffy with prices crossed out. The kitchens are visible at the back and look immaculate.
Even the house wine tasted better than at others. We were brought bread which we didn’t request and were charged 2 euros for. However, it is lovely bread with tapenade so didn’t begrudge this. It is filling though and so hard to resist we then couldn’t finish our mains. Spaghetti bolognase and mousaka. They were perfect. Real revelation was the plates we saw coming out of the kitchen and the recommendations from other diners. This is the place to try fish and sea food. The prices are the reasonable, seem same as the others but it comes much closer to a fine dining experience. Lovely presentation and good quality food. Free ouzo complimented the meal. We will be back to try the fish.

We were encouraged to go there after seing good ratings on trip advisers. Totally deserves the five stars; went there for a couple of times during our trip, and enjoyed it every time. Good menu variety & very tasty food, from apetizers to desert (very nice lava cake, btw). Staff friendly and nice, food is served very quickly (even though sometimes is crowded). Great value for money.
If you visit Nidri, you should put this restaurant on your list.
