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.

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... More

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.

We had dinner here - sitting on the terrace. Beautiful view of the Rhine and of Basel. Service was fair. We sat for awhile before a server came. He gave us menus in German. After asking several questions, he offered menus in English. My wife had salad with king prawns, which was very good. I tried the steak tartar, which... More

I spent around three hours in this restaurant on the banks of the Rhine with four other business colleagues. The atmosphere, service and quality of food and wine was excellent. I'll return the next time I visit Basel.

Really enjoyed a business dinner here. Nice atmosphere and good food. Nice view on the river too. I had the wild boar and some great red wine. Didn't eat dessert but it looked good to. Would go again.

location, location, location!! service slow, food soso, but on a sweltering summer day no need to excel, guests will stand in line to enjoy the view and passing ships, so that makes up for the rest.
