What 54 people say about Basalt
Amazing restaurant, the food was incredible and the service was outstanding.
From the moment I drove onto the premises I knew I was in for an experience. The rolled bread with caramelized onions and parmasan spread 👌🏾 the muscles tasted like they're fresh from sea, never had such good pork belly, dessert and the sweet treats were very delicious. Indeed an experience!
Amazing food, amazing service in a beautiful little restaurant.
Overpriced but over all great food.
Beautiful presentation of delicious taste sensations of amazing courses topped with the best service in town.
