Came here after visiting many other Basel restaurants. Location is quiet in historic hotel and very elegant and comfortable. Service was excellent - very attentive and helpful without being overbearing. Complimentary tasting items were excellent as well as the chocolates at the end of the meal. Very nice wine selection. Angler fish with pasta and Duck with a lightly orange... More

I visited twice on a business trip and the experience was wonderful. The small appetizers that come with the meal are filled with such a pack of flavor. I savored every bite. And the main entrees were clearly made with love. I will come back on my next trip! Money well spent!

This restaurant was suggested to us by an extremely gentle and competent lady at the Concierge Desk in Les Trois Rois hotel, because their very own flagship restaurant Cheval Blanc was unfortunately closed at the time. We pointed out we were celebrating an special occasion and she insisted this should be the place. She was dearly right. The dining room... More

I live in three hours from Basel and thought Bel Etage would make a nice venue to celebrate a special occasion. It was my second time there. Our dinner was nice but most definitely not worth CHF 250 (USD 275) per person, with drinks. The service at table was competent but distracted. However at the front of the house, I... More

A cool experience with fresh tuna sashimi and a seasonal "Waldmeister" sorbet! The extensive vine list is something very special as they only select vines from smaller producers. A real experience!

Excellent location, very nice young team, very nice interiors, comfortable chairs, but...a little bit "plain" food - menu is very limited and nothing special at all.

We had a great evening in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The food was delicious, absolutely the best we had in Basel. It's a rather expensive restaurant but absolutely worth the money for all who want to enjoy excellent food in a beautiful ambience.

We enjoyed the despite the formal dining and gourmet restaurant setting - relaxed athmosphere, the simple, but elegant interiror and friendly service at the bel etage. We were offered a lovely adjusted wine menu to fit each of our courses, with fun local and international wines - some with a Wow effect. Only small minus was the a bit unproffesional... More
