Basildon is the perfect spot for a meal out – just a few miles outside of London and close to other popular areas such as Canvey Island and Billericay, this pretty spot in Essex is foodie heaven. Most of the restaurants in Basildon are grouped around the train station, making them easily accessible. One such centrally-located restaurant is The Stone Grill, which serves a range of delicately-spiced Mediterranean food, from moussaka to meze. This is one of Basildon's best restaurants, and they make great use of garlic, herbs, and mint in their Greek dishes. And the good news? You can reserve a table with Quandoo, and start looking forward to tucking into your mouth-watering meal.
