I have been to Basil's over the last 7 years, in and out of season and have never been disappointed, until last night. 4 of us ate and 4 of us didn't finish our food. It was tasteless and uninspiring compared to previous times. And the Balinese wood carvings and bar in general is looking very uncared for. Maybe the... More

We had read a number of rather grumpy reviews about Basil's, but since we were on Mustique it seemed a shame not to check it out. Glad we did, it has a great location, the food was simple but good and the service good too, so all well at Basils. They were also very kind and courteous to a disabled... More

I believe this place is not owned by basil anymore. It's been bought by the mustique company. I don't know what their intentions are but it needs reburbishing and in some areas fixing. We are so glad we did not chose to eat here whilst visiting on a yacht. But we just had to visit to sample some cocktails. Rum... More

My husband and I visited Mustique , and stayed in one of the spectacular villas..We went to Basil's Bar on a Wednesday for a barbecue. The food was your typical ribs and burgers, the prices were a bit high for the type of food, but after all you are on Mustique, life doesn't get better!!!! The views and the ambience... More

Great place to chill at sun down, great cocktails and live music on Wednesdays and Sundays. Should reopen in time for Autumn half term.

We went to the Sunday night jazz party in mid August this year (2016), the bar is now being run by the Cotton House hotel and the standard seems to have improved a lot, and the prices appear to have dropped. The menu is limited burgers and a few other dishes but I have to say the quality is very... More

About the only action on the beach in Mystique. Located between the fish market and the commercial dock is this over water restaurant and bar called Basil's. Arrived by catamaran at lunch time and got a ball close enough to get their WiFi. Was told by our captain that balls were $100 usd but good for 3 days. That is... More

We moored with help from Mustique moorings on the 21st May (we should have read instructions to reverse onto mooring buoy) and did some essential shopping (small premium but huge stock) but Basil's is shut with no definite idea when it will reopen. The are supposed to work on the kitchen and then later the deck and Basil will be... More

We visited Mustique on a charter on May 14, 2016, just to check out Basil’s Bar and Firefly on our first night in the Grenadines. Unfortunately Basil’s was closed and Firefly had a private party so we couldn’t enjoy either. I guess since everything was closed we couldn’t even get someone from the dock to help us grab a mooring... More

I was here on a charter. We timed it to coincide with the weekly jump up night. I was expecting it to be a hopping place, but it was relatively sedate. Its a cool place to visit, but wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.
