Top service, great coffees

We came with a party of six people and found a nice and wide table in the center of the restaurant. Service was very attentive, prompt and friendly. We came a second time a few hours later and it was still a great service - this time from other staff. All drinks and coffees tasted great.

I've been a regular to Restaurant Baseltor for more than 20 years, but as I moved to a different region in Switzerland, visits to this charming and unique place have become more and more rare. Nevertheless we truly enjoy each meal there, as the cuisine is fresh, honest and down-to-earth. We got an exceptionally attentive and friendly service, very good... More

Due to my job... More

This is my favourite Restaurant in Solothurn. They have a menu that changes daily with great options for vegetarians. The atmosphere is just outstanding and they do have a few nice tables outside, next to the back entrance. The staff is very friendly and helpful

The Baseltor is one of the "reliable values" in Solothurn - nice setting, good, creative and inventive food, very nice setting and - more or less - reasonable prices. And, yeah, the service is outstanding - professional WITH a smile, which is really rare, these days. The menu card is inventive, changes often and has the only default that it... More

OK, it's nasty hot this week in Solothurn. Sweat all day at work, take a quick cold shower and try to find something for dinner that will keep your cool. Seated outside, begging for any breeze that might happen by. Listening to the cathedral bells, and watching the locals get home. Waitron was completely knowledgeable on menu and wines -... More

Being the last three nights in Solothurn, the restaurant became my favourite one. Food is great, service is optimal. And looking out from the window to the wonderful church makes the dinner complete. It deserves an higher rank in tripadvisor.

What a complete and utter disgrace. We've never had such lousy food in Switzerland. Old and wilted lettuce, fish was rotten. I am seriously considering calling the health inspectors.

This place is very nice for serveral reasons: first of all the quality of the food, the restaurant belongs to the "slow food" circuit which is kind of guarantee. Second: the atmosphere is quite cool, artistic-like and young. Third: it's in the centr of town and it's opened on Sunday since morning to evening continuously, which in Switzerland should not...
