A most pleasant place with excellent service

A setting that in the summertime must be a killer, just by the river. Excellent service and a modern, light kitchen that let the savours speak for themselves. Got recommended some seriously good Swiss wines as well. A very good experience.

I have eaten dinner in this restaurant and it was delicious. Made of local seasonal produce, it was fresh and nicely seasoned. The Swiss wine was amazing.

Nice restaurant in front of the Rhein. Waitresses very nice and food very good. Very typical, maybe a little bit expensive ...

I sat here for a light lunch with my family to enjoy a beautiful view of the Rhine. The location is indeed nice, but I cannot say the same for food and staff. After a fair share of waiting, I managed to order a large beer, but only got a half pint (it's a wine joint, I get it). I... More

As a real frenchie, I love tartare. I found this restaurant by chance and ordered one. It was quite expensive so I took the starters portion because I didn't know what this dish was worth (which was still expensive). There was way more red sauce than meat and it was not well cuted. My friend took the fish of the... More

We went there for lunch today, having never been before. The view is nice and the decor and ambient etc. too but the food was very disappointing. I had the vegetarian lunch menu which was aubergine slices in a batter on rice and tomato sauce. The sauce tasted to me as it was a pelati out of tin but the... More

This is a good restaurant serving traditional Swiss food. Not cheap but good value. The location is great, with outside tables right overlooking the Rhine. The service was very good. A good choice to experience what Basel has to offer (a lot).

Have been here several times recently for business dinners. Interesting menu and consistent food. Can usually accommodate large parties. Sitting outside in the summer is a huge bonus and it is lovely to see the boats and swimmers go by.

A great location overlooking the Rhine on the City side of the river near Schifflände. We had a lovely couple of courses and the quality of the food and presentation was to a high standard. The restaurant offered us a free taster starter on the house which was very nice and the staff were most attentive.They offer a menu with... More

This was our first dining experience in Basel and it was a very pleasant one. The view was beautiful a bit chilly but, that was ok. The service was fabulous. The menu although a bit limit, we were able to find items that were very nicely prepared. The recommended wine with my ravioli so was excellent. Very satisfied.
