Some of the best food I've had

Stumbled across this restaurant and so glad we did. It's very uniquely located on the 2nd floor of a very odd building, you'll wonder if you're in the right place going up the dark stairs but once inside it's lovely, the staff are friendly and speak English. The food is to just die for, my wife... read more

Very interesting location, looks like a loft ;) It used to be a brewery, so I was told. Staff was very friendly, we had a bussines dinner there with 20 people or so and they got each order right! Food is good, especially for vegetarians or even vegans. Selection is not so broad, but that is a good sign. What... More

I came across this restaurant through trip advisor and wanted to invite my partner for a special evening. The carte looked very interesting, especially as I was keen to try out a vegan menu. We ordered the most expensive wine on the card, which was ok but not special at all. We had to ask the waiters to have some... More

We had our last business dinner here and it was absolutely perfect. The staff is very friendly, the food is tasty, the place has a great atmosphere. Couldn't be more pleased and will definitely eat here more often.

Four of us turned up on spec . They managed to find room for us after a short wait and a quick drink on the roof terrace. Lovely veggie food mainly but some meat. Very friendly staff. Candles led to a great atmosphere. Quite reasonably priced for Basel which is eye wateringly expensive. Highly recommended restaurant in a fascinating building.

Basel is not particularly known for having inventive restaurants, but this one sure changes the scenario a bit! We were very happy to discover this place that has a modern but still accommodating feel and a very nice outside area where one can enjoy a meal. The complex where it stays gives me a some contemporary artsy feel like one... More

This is a good restaurant in a city that offers little competition in this sector - strong on vegetarian and vegan food, it offers imaginative and well conceived food with an alternative and creative slant. When I went (in mid week) it was almost full but the service was prompt and considerate. I had a fennel salad which was delicious... More

Don Camillo is one of the best places to eat in Basel. They have a delicious vegan menu and their staff is brillant. They never forget you, they are always reading every wish from your lips. I'm always amazed by how great vegan food can taste - and Don Camillo makes some of the best. It's always a pleasure to... More

Let's be honest, this is not a restaurant. It's not even a Cantina. It's a snack bar. We were in and out within 30 minutes, which was enough to eat just about the worst cheeseburger I've ever eaten in my life. It tasted like soggy cardboard. Of course, it's all very trendy, especially during Art Basel. But MacDo is better... More
