Our favourite place to eat in Padstow , food excellent and the owner and his staff second to none, if you can get a table outside the view of the harbour is stunning.
I can’t say enough good things about this place either for lunch, dinner or just a coffee it’s the place to be.

Not our first visit, but it's such good value that we were looking forward to a nice night out on Valantine's day. As always great food, wonderful service and excellent value.

i can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can start cycling to the basement in the summer.
looking forward to seeing you soon.
Thank you.

We ate here on their first day opening after their Winter break - and it was excellent. Superb food, with excellent service, and reasonably priced wines.
We enjoyed three courses, with a bottle of wine, and came away not feeling utterly stuffed.... but really impressed with the quality of the food - simply delicious and reasonable. We paid £74 for 2 including tip.
We will be back!

We stumbled into The Basement for lunch on a cold and drizzly December day & I can now see why the place has such good reviews. High quality local ingredients are cooked almost infront of you - the sausage sandwich was fantastic! We'll be returning to Padstow soon and will be sure to go for dinner. A great find.

This was our third year on the trot for a NYE meal at the Basement and I have say yet again we weren't disappointed!. Even though it was a set meal they still offered us a variation to one or two of the mains. Great little restaurant very cosy. Booked again for 2012.
