Description: The restaurant Atelier underlines the art and gallery orientation of the cultural guesthouse «Der Teufelhof Basel». Being the French word for an artist’s workshop, an atelier is the workplace of a creative person. Our guests staying in the restaurant Atelier experience a glimpse behind the scenes of daily life in kitchen and service. Our offer comprises state-of-art global cuisine, mainly with Swiss and regional products which we purchase from suppliers and producers who we know personally. The emphasis is placed on manual skills - everything we offer is «handmade».

Located near the old City walls, Restaurant Atelier was the perfect location for dinner with colleagues. Service was friendly and prompt with quality prosecco served as an aperitif. We ate in the main restaurant, a relatively large space with good natural light coming in off the patio. The food was excellent - prawns were well cooked and juicy with the... More

Thanks to the reviewers who suggested this restaurant--we'll add, it was a great choice. Someone commented that it was friendly to gluten-free restricted diners--TRUE. The service was so nice; great suggestions were made and we enjoyed fantastic wines along with a very well prepared meal.

Modern world cuisine in an old building. Had a tasty Irish black Angus filet and a very friendly service. Serves regional microbrew beer from "Unser Bier" brewery. Prices are average for this kind of quality, service and location. Have a look down in the wine cellar surrounded with the historic city walls

We turned up here without a reservation on the second night of Fasnacht, when they were fuly booked, but the staff very helpfully found us a table and managed to serve us a good meal within the one hour they could spare. The salads were fresh and tasty, and the dish of the day was good quality and well cooked.

Delicious food, great design and atmosphere, friendly service. I enjoyed every bit and every bite of my dinner - the pumpkin soup, the angos stake, the pino noir, the coffee. Perfection.

We went there for lunch and it was fantastic. The dining room is light and airy. The food was excellent...and I thought reasonably priced for Switzerland. The staff were exceptional....friendly and efficient. Without doubt I will go back.

My wife and I turned up just in time for last orders after going to the nearby jazz club. The service was great and their attention to my wife's gluten-free needs excellent, including bread for her starter. My roe buck was wonderful and my wife had tasty black rice with her fish. It is part of an interesting looking hotel... More
