After reading few reviews, we expected it to be class restaurant but the reviews were misleading. Inside a building, a hall converted into a restaurant with congested seating. The ceiling is made to look like old curved- semi dome type. There is a bar which is a must in any European restaurant. The food portions are very small- gourmet type... More

We did our research here on TripAdvisor to find something special for our recent visit to Hannover. We were so impressed with the friendly service from the moment we arrived until we left. We selected one of the Special Menus and were very pleased with our choice. The manager has a thorough knowledge of wines and can offer some helpful... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Hannover!! I have been coming to Hannover for many years, for professional reasons, tried quite a few different restaurants, and Basil is definitively at the top of my list as the very best! This was my third time in this restaurant and, strangely enough, I never picked from their menu as I was in... More

The local , old stile, looks very nice. The food is good but portions are very very small while prices are high. We were sitting near a door used by smokers to go outside to smoke. THis door can be closed only from inside so when they go out it satays open and when they get in, the smokers don't... More

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.
