Fodor's Expert Review Basilic Restaurant

$$$$ Newport Beach Romantic

This intimate French--Swiss bistro adds a touch of old-world elegance to Balboa Island with its white linen and flower-topped tables. Chef Bernard Althaus grows the herbs used in his classic French dishes. Head here for charcuterie, coq au vin, steak au poivre, and a fine glass of Bordeaux. Finish with a caramelized apple tarte tatin with ice cream.The restaurant offers a prix-fixe five-course tasting menu and a la carte items.
