We had breakfast at Basico's, which was really good. Fresh juice, hot coffee with refill how often you like. Fresh and delicious food. The service was very good and friendly. We'll come back.

This is my very first negative review I have ever provided but I cannot help to make possible future guests aware of bad price benefit ratio at Basico. Unfortunately we celebrated our wedding anniversary in Basico because we assumed it is a great restaurant. Looks...More

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.
