Without a doubt very good food, interesting items on the menu and all freshly cooked with fresh regional products. Wine list is okay but not exceptional. So, nothing wrong with the offerings but the (serving) staff seemed to have gotten carried away a bit with...More

At Restaurant Basalt we serve what comes from the ocean that morning. With seasonal products we create beautiful dishes. We mainly serve fish dishes but also for meat lovers there is always a fine choice as well. With 38 seats we are a warm and cosy restaurant.
