Excellent Seafood in an elegant ambiance

I had an excellent business lunch at the Schifferhaus. The seafood was delicious, great service and an elegant ambiance. I highly recommend it for lunch or dinner if you want to be close to Basel, but not downtown and you want to be able to have a private conversation

Very nice restaurant in a wonderful house with a wonderful garden. The menu list and wine list are very nice and the staff very friendly. Only drawback is that the restaurant is quite far away from the city center. However, definitely a place to recommend.

First time I visited this place with my spouse, this time we went for business dinner on a very warm evening. Sitting in the garden is great, big trees provide shade and coolness. Unfortunately every now and then wasps flied around, nothing very bad but I suppose they could make even more efforts to keep those away. First we got... More

Tucked away up a random alley near a railway shunting yard, logistics centre and docks, this is an absolute eye-opener. Gorgeous little garden out the back for beers, delightful modern little bar and wonderful food - we were part of a large group so had a fixed menu, but it was fabulous. The staff were attentive and friendly, although it... More

We ate the surprise menu 4 course for 70 CHF. This is a bit cheaper than average with the quality higher than average, so we felt it was a good choice. In the summer you can sit in a very nice garden which we really appreciated. Service was good.

This remote place is sure worth to go to. Situated in the harbor area of Basel in a old house the staff welcomes you very friendly and sets the tone for the evening. Good food for very reasonable price, nice wine selection and attentive yet undisturbing waiters help you enjoy your evening.

You don't expect to find such a beautiful location in the middle of a rather greyish neighborhood near the swiss/german border. The former children's home (hence the name Schifferhaus) is surrounded by a small but pleasant park. The menu which chef Willimann is offering is kept short - which I like. They rather focus on quality than quantity - and... More
