Even if you ARE from Hannover, you will always be delightet be the quality of food combined with the very warm and friendly atmosphere of this place. It is not really in the very heart of the city, but easy to reach within 5 minutes by taxi oder underground. Staff's suggestions are very helpful!

We went as a group of 6. Booked on line and got a speedy confirmation, just as well as there was not a table to spare. We all had one of the suggested fixed price menus which were well put together to show off the chefs talents. Really good tasty dishes with good quality ingredients. We asked for suggestions for...

Right from the moment you enter you are treated with the highest level of customer service. Although the restaurant was busy you never felt neglected.The noise level was lower than expected given the number of guests. The saddle of deer was so tender that I hardly needed a knife to eat it. Excellent.

Very good food in this restaurant built in an old stable area. In summer an outside garden is also available. Professional service and good wines. Price on the top side.

Basil is situated a little out of the centre but not far from the Dragonerstrasse tram (U-bahn) stop (line 1 and 2). On an autumn night the subfusc entrance was unprepossessing but it led to a airy and elegant interior. A high brick-vaulted ceiling hinted at an industrial past but this was now a sophisticated and well laid-out dining space.... More

Once again great atmosphere, good to excellent service, great choice in wines, the food still excellent. One small point of improvement perhaps; like last time I ordered the steak from the "Angus rind".....in my memory it wasn't as tender as last time, but............the taste........big compliment.

I chose this restaurant while booking a dinner for my training course that I organized in Hannover according to its rating in Trip Advisor. It is what people say, food is great, service is super professional and efficient, restaurant is original, beautiful. I had worked with the owner to come up with a menu that pleases everyone at our budget,... More

The waitress was fab, her recommendations of drinks spot on, but the overall food was average at best. The starter salad was great and promising with honey mustard and tasty onion confit. The second, soup was disappointing as it smelled and tasted burned vegetables and the soup was far too salty - obviously someone not Asian using too much soy... More
