A good experience but slow service and meagre portions

We found this a friendly, family run restaurant without the hangups of many Basel restaurants. It fitted this bill, but service was a little slow and unpolished, and my salad was a meagre portion for the price, It was all I could have as I am vegetarian and there seemed no accommodation possible... read more

I read about the place in a local leaflet, so went there on a Friday night. Very attentive service, was ushered to a table with a big smile. I ordered drink immediately and the menu came fast.

Don't go unless you want slow, inattentive service and I mean SLOW... Dirty glasses, sediment or other bits floating in wine caraffe...burnt cordon bleu.... That all takes forever to come!

A nice, friendly, neighbourhood restaurant, good food with a Czech / Slovak accent and a reasonable wine list. Not cheap, but not as expensive as many in pricey Basel. Has a few tables outside. Nice ambience. But, yes, you do need to catch the 15 tram or the 36 bus from the centre of town.

We dine at the Wanderruh at least once a week and so far only once they had trouble serving us timely. Otherwise the food is always excellent and Dani and his crew is always friendly and welcoming. Extra wishes and desires are always fulfilled!
