Not worth the price

This restaurant was pleasant though with a limited range of offerings. Our waiter was gruff and absolutely refused to speak any language other than German. We ended up unsure of the fish that we finally ordered. The offering was eventually fine but not worth the steep price. But this has often been... read more

I met my friend for dinner at the forth king and it was simply amazing. What most people do not know: there is a new chef in the kitchen and a new chef servant. They were making us feeling so welcome that the time flew by. They cook now only fresh products and you can taste the difference! Definit a... More

Great place if you don't want the normal fare available in Basel. It's location is fantastic, right on the banks of the Rhine River, and just down from the "Three Kings Hotel - Le Trois Rois." The menu changes based on the season for the specials. There is a standard menu. The asparagus offerings in March were excellent, and the... More

the restaurant is a beautiful spot and very central, but the food is just OK. Portions are scarse, ridiculously expensive and the restaurant manager was rude. The worst dish was the creme brulee, it smelled of rotten egg. Avoid if you dont' like overpriced meals, there is much better around Basel for half of the price.

We enjoyed the lovely outdoor tables and view of the river but it took well over an hour to be served the daily special. Also three out of the five in our party were not served the soup that came with the special until 30 minutes after the first two had been served. The daily vegetarian special, a baked potato...

Nice little wine bar on the Rhine! We went there for drinks one night and lunch on another occasion. If the weather's nice sit outside and enjoy the river scenery. They offer average prices for Basel and service was quite good.
