Mediterranean through and through, Base Bistro offers relaxed dining in a lovely location, in the village-esque Hampstead, in amongst the chic boutiques and bars. Simply and attractively designed, Base is light and comfortable, painted in unobtrusive tones and hung with colourful reproductions of vintage continental advertising posters. Sourced from local markets by chefs determined to use ingredients of the highest quality, Base’s food has a holiday memory-inducing Mediterranean flavour with a strong Italian selection standing alongside offerings from Greece, France and – a slight detour – even a couple of dishes all the way from the Asian cookbook. With a wine list recommended with Hardens and the option to enjoy simple snacks, delicious breakfasts, light bites or a good old three course dinner, Base brings bistro, brasserie and café styles of dining together perfectly, creating a unique atmosphere in a deservedly popular restaurant.
