Sumptuous in every way. The Brasserie has an impressive landscape painting covering one entire wall. It also has antique gilt-framed mirrors. The panoramic windows also offer fabulous views of the Rhine. The restaurant serves a selection of French-Swiss specialities such as Entrec��te de boeuf and Z��richer Kalbsgeschnetzeltes (a local dish of diced veal). The restaurant has attractively laid tables and black upholstered chairs and appeals to hotel guests and tourists. The service is perfect, polite and friendly. Fancy a glass of wine? The Brasserie has an outstanding selection fine wine from which to choose.

Top food, service, location

An ideal place to enjoy excellent food and wine and great service. When you reserve well in advance try to have a table with a view on the Rhine - it's superb! A real treat for all occasions!

Went for a late dinner during a busy evening. Arrived a bit early for our specified time but seated quickly and in a good table. Good first impression then spoiled - asked if we wanted an aperitif we ordered a GandT but we're told it would take 20 minutes as the bar was a long way away. Hmmm. Sort of... More

I got invited, as a birthday present, to enjoy a high tea. Reservations must be made well in advance, but the waiting is worthwhile. I loved the atmosphere and the setting: overlooking the fast flowing water. Service is really good: silent, at the background but taking care of you attentfully. The champagne (to start with) and portwine (to end with)... More

The 3 Kings brasserie overlooks the Rhine and is a wonderful venue to take friends and family for lunch together. Book in advance to be safe, as it's quiet popular. A recommended eaterie in downtown Basel and lovely at any time of year

A favorite Basel restaurant. Early business dinner. Lovely view of the Rhein, relaxed atmosphere and excellent menu (food and wine). Chose fixed price menu. Consistently competent cooking and very professional and unobtrusive but friendly service.
