Romantic night`s meal

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely evening at the Bel Etage in the Teufelhof Basel. It wasn't the cheapest meal, but that option doesn`t really exist in Basel. The service was delightful and we really loved the parquet flooring. Would highly recommend for a special occassion.

The food is actually not bad (despite the tiny portions). However, it is extremely expensive and hence quite overrated. The ambience is nothing special either. I think that such exorbitant prices are not even remotely justified. Avoid.

Had dinner here Thursday March 12th. The amazing food was perfectly matched by three wonderful female waiting staff who were extremely professional and courteous. We had a set menu with matched wines in lovely dining room. Relaxed atmosphere and dining experience one of best experienced in Basel.

Great food with emphasis on fresh seasonal products, with a hint of asian influence. The chefs seem to be endlessly creative with how to serve veggies in surprising ways. The wine selection was equally impressive. Everything we tasted was well-balanced qnd cooked to perfection.

We had dinner at this restaurant and were not disappointed. Take into account that if you want to have a quick or very informal dinner this is probably not the best option. The place was quite full when we went there and it took quite some time until we finally ate. Nevertheless I think it is a really nice restaurant.... More

This was a lovely meal in a really nice setting, we had the a la carte but there were also a couple of amuse bouches. Beetroot soup was particularly good! The service was really excellent, friendly and fast. Nice setting too - nothing bad to say.

We were 3 adults and enjoyed the restaurant and the food. The cuisine and presentation of food lived up to the restaurant's reputation. Outstanding taste and execution. Kudos to the Chef and kitchen Brigade. The service started up as fantastic as well. We enjoyed everything until main-courses were cleared. During our dinner a table of 10 was sat in the... More

We had an excellent evening in this restaurant. The six-course meal was a birthday gift and we were looking for a special culinary experience. The service was very cordial, and all very knowledgeable about wine and food. One waitress when we asked her about the anglerfish promptly came back to our table with an ipod to show us some photos... More
