“Nice and relaxing ambiance - good for dinner and for a drink too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I like this place because it is calm, relaxing and conducive to chilling. I haven't tried the restaurant yet, but having a nice tea there on a cold winter evening is definitely a must. Staff is nice, polite and friendly, not hurried and over stressed. Restaurant is at a train-station but you won't even notice, there isn't a big crowd and you can't hear a single train. I would definitely recommend this place if you would like to chill and unwind or have a nice conversation without having to shout.

“Great brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

A very nice spot to go for Brunch on Sunday. The service was a tad slow but very friendly. The food was good and reasonably priced.

“Pretty nice, definitely unexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Ok, not exactely Suisse and not exactely the best location in Basel (closed, attached, to Badhof railway station) but still a nice place with a very kind staff; been there in August, enjoying the external dehor, I really appreciate the seasonal (in this case 'grill attack') meal: the menu has an important French influence (includin the flavoured tarte flambèe) and the cost/final price is much more than reasonable (close to unexpensive). Not a first choice in Basel but if You're staying here for a long...

“Great atmosphere, good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

Les Garecons is a great place to go. The atmosphere is very nice, not too loud, not too quite together with smart design.

The menu was mostly from the grill, with one vegetarian dish. The fish was really great, the steak above average (for a swiss restaurant). Delicious gazpacho and an intersting melon-liver-parmesan salad as starters.

Definitively a place I can recommend.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2009

Great blend of traditional/local food and asian kitchen. Also the Sunday brunch is superb (reservation recommended).
