“A friendly welcome ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Classic Swiss-German cuisine with few light or vegetarian choices. However, the meat dishes are excellent in quality and very good value. Wide choice of local beers and soft drinks.

The atmosphere is traditional sort small beer hall but attracts a lot of the local business crowd.

I recommend their ice cream. It felt homemade and was absolutely superb.

Service un-hurried and friendly. A good choice and an excellent hiding place from Basel shopping !

“Good value & jolly place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We came here as a group of teachers for an end-of-term dinner. The menu offers a good selection of mainly meat-based dishes, so not a great place for vegetarians. Nonetheless a fun place for a group of friends and the service is friendly.

“Heavy food, but excellent !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011 via mobile

This is a very typical restaurant in Basel. I woul recomment you to eat the "pfanne" . You can have them in sevveral ways, always excellent choice. Beer is the recommended choice, not wine. The atmosphere is ancient and unformal. Price are on the low end. Service is familiar and fast. No parking because the restaurant is located inthe center of Basle , very close to Marktplatz.
