If you don't speak German don't come. That seems to be their approach. Service is also very slow. Was pretty empty at lunchtime and dishes seamed pretty average. There are better places to go to in Basel.

We wandered in on a recommendation, because we were looking for a Bier/Wein Stubbe. Got there in early afternoon. That was good because they were all booked up for 6:30 dinner. They gave us menu's in English. The food was very good. The beer and wine were awesome. It's Switzerland, so it was also pricey. But what there, isn't ?... More

Typical Suisse food, large portions and very friendly staff; all what is needed for a pleasant business dinner not too formal.

Didn't find this restaurant value for money, in fact it was very expensive but then everywhere in Basel was.

Had dinner. Good location just around the corner from Schifflande on way to Marktpatz. Reasonably busy on a midweek evening. Good décor, beer was presented in wonderful long glasses and the service was welcoming and efficient. The food was reasonably priced but pretty average and too heavy... others do it better. I had rosti but it was under layers of... More

I stopped to eat here as everyone seemed to be having a good time! Good value for money, nice selection of dishes although some of the sauces can be a bit heavy. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a good regional style meal.

Classic Swiss-German cuisine with few light or vegetarian choices. However, the meat dishes are excellent in quality and very good value. Wide choice of local beers and soft drinks. The atmosphere is traditional sort small beer hall but attracts a lot of the local business crowd. I recommend their ice cream. It felt homemade and was absolutely superb. Service un-hurried...
