After getting up and leave from our table at Bebo's Cafe for not getting service, we walked next door and went to Basilia's. It was empty, we got quick service and we had a great lunch last Saturday afternoon. I recommend it for good Criollo food in Loiza Street.

This place has a very NYC feel to it. The food is pretty good as is the wait staff. The pricing is good also.

Service was attentive and helpful. Food quality was great (churrasco mofongo and loma de cerdo). Prices were reasonable. Definitely worth going into if you're nearby.

It was a late night and we were looking for a good place to eat. Basilia was not far from our hotel and the price seemed right. They had free valet parking which was a plus as well. The paella, the codfish critters and the empanadas were delicious. The rum punch had a nice kick to it. The service was good as well. It was an unexpected stop, but worth it. It definitely hit the spot for our late night munchies!

I come to Puerto Rico every year (grew up here) and always enjoy the food it offers. I am always searching for some new place to eat, and this one hit the spot. Basilia's just openend next to Bebo's and it's very good! (Both of these restaurants are great!). This is what you would consider home cooking (cocina criolla), good portions, good prices, laid back and casual, full of locals and tourists who come to enjoy some delicious and flavorful food.
I went back twice for the same dish! Arañitas (shredded plantain in the shape of a basket) with seafood in garlic sauce inside. All my companions enjoyed what they ordered too! Will come back.
There are two Basilias, this one on Loiza Street (Condado), and another one in Isla Verde.
