This is a fine place with excellent professional service and good recommendation of wines. The interior is also very unique. Very high class place in a city like hannover!

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

The outside of the restaurant looks beautiful. The bricks and the use of glass for the doors and huge glass windows made me feel like I was standing in front of huge castle wine cellar. When I walked in. I saw a stand, but no host. I was late and my friend was still looking for a place to park... More

I have known the BASIl since about the year 2000 and visit regularly. Always try one of the recommended menues and trust the recommendations of the Sommelier - it never failed ! Love the cross-over cuisine, the creativity and freshness of the meals. Also a good place to just have a cocktail or a glass of wine in the yard....

I recently was at Basil with business colleagues. First off, the atmosphere is terrific. Basil resides in an old military building, I believe it was part of a horse stable originally. Lots of history there, in fact the wine steward left a historical book at our table for us to review. Our group of four went for the four course... More

Went there for my partner's birthday with friends. Service was efficient but a food wasn't impressive. Every dish I had looked nice but that's all about it. Definitely not worth the price. They are trying to be modern fusion type of restaurant without a doubt but only a half hearted. Could be a better restaurant only if they try little... More
