I have been lucky enough to eat in a number of Michelin Star restaurants and The Cheval Blanc is utterly wonderful and one of the best. The service and ambiance were perfect and the food is almost indescribable! I had the beef followed by the veal and as you would expect they were both perfection. The cheese board has a... More

One of the very best in Basel (if not the best). Ambiance, food, wine card. It has it all. But prepare to be skinned!

I had a wonderful lunch. The splendid food was only equaled by the sincere and elegant service. Received a recommendation of an excellent bottle of Swiss wine. The room had an abundance of natural light and allowed for easy conversation. I only have superlatives for the entire experience-- well worth the price.

I have to say, even though I gave it a 4 out of 5, it was a very close 5. Apart from the areas of improvements I will mention now, it was a near perfect experience. The sommelier was very able, no doubt that. We got a wine that my wife would consider her favourite wine now. But as we... More
