Simple, yet refined

The four of us booked our table on the busiest day of the pre Xmas season and the lady on the phone was bending over backwards to accomodate us. She was candid about the potential noise coming from two large parties that had booked the same evening. What we got was a nice table, tucked away in a... read more

I like to go there: traditional food good mixed with extravagant creations, things you'll normally won't find on your dish in a Restaurant! I can't say anything about outdoor sitting, never been there in sommertime.

As part of an "experiment" the British chef invited two of his friends (head chefs in other Basel restaurants) to put together with him a menu surprise featuring a different course from each person - it was superb. The food, the service and the excellent accompanying wines made for a great evening and we will certainly go back again. This... More

The food quality is excellent and the offers are all worth a try. High quality, delicious food in a nice atmosphere. Trendy but quiet restaurant with excellent wine selection, good service and still a very uncomplicated atmosphere. Worth a visit for a meal with mates, a romantic dinner or a family outing.

I have been to this restauarnt many times and always look forward to going back. The food and service is always of a high quality. There is also a set menu, with one or two variations, which always seems to work well. The restuarant has an industrial sort of feel - which I think suits small (or even large) groups... More

Lovely food at Gundeldingerhof, I have eaten here a couple of times and have not been disappointed. Friendly staff and a menu that changes with the season. The chef is British and makes amazing food, I just need to come back and try the the 'surprise' menu. Prices are typically 'Basel' but it's nice to come here for a treat... More

Had a company dinner and didn't think much of the interior. Was therefore pleasantly surprised by the food. Everything was excellent, the starter, main course and desserts and wines. The neighborhood is a bit off (which is pretty much my experience in all cities behind the train station), but don't let that scare you. Well worth a visit.

Went here with a guest who had been waiting for a while to try it out again. We got a table near the kitchen - maybe you need to get there earlier. The menu is short, but that is a good point, since you are assured that meals are prepared to a quality that you can expect at these prices.... More

Forget eoipso, take the suprise menu at the gundeldingerhof and ask the sommelière Ms. baumgartner for her input -- you won't be disappointed. We loved the relaxed bistro athmosphere and really really enjoyed the more than excellent food. Culinary surprises with every course, excellent wines to accompany and complement them. Weekday evening may be preferable: it was not noisy at... More
