Sat in the courtyard for a great lunch at Zur Harmonie in the September sun. Wonderful venue and food to match, we were also well attended to by some knowledgeable and conscientious staff. The lunch menu salad started was ok but it was the main course and cheese board that stole the show. The head to toe of Ox was... More

Nothing out of the ordinary. All the restaurants are expensive compared to north american standards.

The atmosphere here is fun and it is definitely a local restaurant. The service was not all that friendly and the waitress did not speak English so we had difficulty with what to order. As a result the meal was not our best.

We had a lovely dinner here including wine and beer. The restaurant is very casual and they do have some outdoor seating. Do to the rain, we opted to eat indoors. Service was prompt and courteous and prices were in line for Basel (high). The location in Old Town was very convenient for us.

Very clean, pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, indigenous landscaping. Original dishes and friendly staff give a special charm to this restaurant. Easy to find.

Our hotel recommended Zur Harmonie as a number of restaurants were closed on Monday nights. The restaurant is a popular place for locals and visitors, with a warm and cosy interior. We had an excellent bratwurst and rosti followed by a delicious strawberry parfait. The portions were generous and the service was efficient and very friendly. This is a great... More

Had dinner at this restaurant and booked it when we were walking through the old streets. Staff were very welcoming and food well priced and tasty. There were lots of locals so its clearly a popular place. Would definitely return when next in Basel.

The lovely receptionist at my hotel recommended Harmonie for authentic Swiss cuisine, The menu in the window advertised a daily special of Sauerkraut mit Kassler und Speck (which sounded so much like a salty pork dreamscape that I was in the door). The waitress was on her lunch break and this seemed to be source of my dilemma. The kitchen... More

In a very expensive country it was refreshing to find this restaurant where we enjoyed local fare at slightly more reasonable pricing. A very popular place, we had to wait for a table one night, but definitely worth it for great local vibe, laughter and amazing food.
