BEST OF BASEL

I've been reading all the other reviews here and some of them I just don't understand how can they say things what doesn't fit?? Well, we were here now the 3rd time and I just can tell you the truth: This place is the best Restaurant in Basel for me. We enjoyed all the meals, all the tastes, all... read more

I have been here 2 years ago and it was worth it. Even the portions were small on each plate, we were really full afterwards and the tastes of the seafood was quite a good experience. worth to go there once in a while.

My wife and I went to this restaurant based on other TA reviews. We were not disappointed. From the outside, this restaurant looks like any other, nothing special. Inside, it is quite nice, few tables and only two employees. We did not have a reservation, but being a Wednesday, we did not need one. We ordered the 4 course meal... More

The title of my review says it all. The waiter was extremely knowledge, hospitable and professional without being pretentious. The wine that he selected to pair with our 4 course meal was amazing and of very high quality. The ambiance left me underwhelmed for a restaurant in this price category. The food was good, some courses were better than others.... More

A superb find. Delicious and interesting food, excellent wines and very good standard of service. A memorable dinner not to be rushed. Looking forward to returning.

Title says is all. The interior is slightly spartan, but I could care less about that. I am slightly redneck/hillbilly so portions seemed small in size for the price. Excellent service, taste and presentation. I went for a trial in the bistro in preparation for a b day dinner for my girlfriend. Single item menu, which happened to be a... More

This is not the first time we eat at this restaurant (I think it probably is the third or fourth time). We were here for a dinner around Easter, and we were not disappointed. The cuisine in this restaurant focuses on fresh and top-notch ingredients, often from their own garden, interesting and well-judged flavour combinations, prepared to perfection using a... More

The restaurants serves a degustation menu from 4 to 7 courses excluding amuse-bouches (3 courses) and 1 desert choice. Each plate was a story being told by the gentleman guiding us through this adventure. This has been one of the best restaurants we have been to. It is not a quick discovery. We will be back. Recommend the cod dish... More

Each course was a culinary work of art! Fresh and seasonal ingredients combined with excellent wine pairings created wonderfully imaginative taste sensations. Service was superb. Great value for money and worth venturing out of the downtown area.
