The combination of lively, authentic Swiss atmosphere, a neighborhood friendly vibe, excellent food, and top notch wait staff...including Anna, the owner...make Restaurant Zur Harmonie a must in Basel. Its location close to shopping and the university make it easily assesible. I've eaten there about 15 times on numerous trips to Basel and it reminds me of Cheers in America...where everybody...

My parents were also asking for a restaurant where they can get a salad - a nice salad. Our searching came to an end when we stopped off here. A traditional Basel restaurant, Swiss cuisine - and a good salad. Moderate prices, nice service and some outdoor seating (not much of a view though).

Loved the vibrant, happy ambience. Restaurant was full and lively. Servers were attentive and helpful and food was tasty. Beer and wine were excellent. Very European atmosphere. Good value.

My wife and I wanted some good traditional Swiss food and we got it here. We had our 2 kids with us when we had lunch 2 days ago and there is lots of tasty goods on the menu. The steak tartar was amazing and the Swiss sausage salad was just as good, staff are very friendly offering good service.

This is a delightful place with marvellous, accommodating staff. It is pleasant, locals eat here, the food was delicious and not too expensive for Basel. Save up your calorie allotment and go here for rösti, the Swiss fried potato dish, it is delicious!

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.
