Place is beautiful and iconic. I stopped after a day of walking and enjoyed the view of the river while having traditional Swiss Chocolate and afterwards a glass of wine.

Staff is super nice, polite and professional without being stiff. I really enjoyed my visit.

Great Abruzzese bartender whose name I will never forget as the gentleman next to me kept shouting it to get half-glasses of wine refilled. Piano player was wonderful, drinks and service immaculate. Will most certainly return when in Basel again and highly recommend. Comfortable for people traveling alone as well.

Being an Israeli-born American citizen, I was eager to visit the famous balcony imbued with historical significance. This spot holds a piece of history where one of Israel's founders stood, making a resolute promise that our nation would come to fruition if we so desired. This snapshot of history is deeply meaningful to me.

Upon arriving at the bar balcony, I encountered a tall individual named Thomas who unfortunately did not extend a warm welcome. He informed me that the balcony was already full and I couldn't even step out to catch a glimpse. This left me disheartened, as it seemed Thomas held a prejudice against me due to my Jewish identity. It was evident he harbored an immediate dislike.

Undeterred, my companions and I returned the next morning, met by a respectful and courteous individual, though I regrettably can't recall his name. He happened to be of Indian descent. I implore you to address the issue of staff attitude towards Jewish visitors. My encounter with Thomas, a staff member who presumed a level of superiority due to his affiliation with a top-tier hotel, was quite hurtful. It's important to remember that possessing a job at a high-class establishment doesn't grant one the same level of elegance and grace.

Dear Mrs Writz Your review on Tripadvisor leaves me speechless. Our bar is one of Basel's most popular and busiest bars and is often fully booked. Our terrace is a hotspot, especially during the summer season, because of the fabulous view of the River Rhine. The seating capacity is limited, and subsequently, there are moments when we have to restrict access for the comfort of our patrons. Our bar manager has been with us since the reopening in 2006 and does an excellent job. As the General Manager, it is hurtful to read comments like yours about my team members, and I must say that I will defend the integrity of their reputation. Thomas needs to ensure the comfort of our guests who want quality time. So, if the bar terrace is too busy, then it is our right to limit the number of people who want to have a look. I'm sure that you'll understand that. I also hope you will realise that I consider it a grave accusation of treating anyone of us as antisemitic. I can and will not accept such an accusation from you, even if you feel offended that you weren't allowed to the terrace on a busy day. It would help if you think twice before writing such an awful thing. Feel free to reach me personally at philippe.clarinval@lestroisrois.com Best regards Philippe Clarinval General Manager

We started off sitting inside because there were no tables on the terrace. However, they quickly moved us outside. We had drinks and a cheese board. The prices were sinful, but we were on vacation and it was just gorgeous.

We stumbled upon this bar area when stopping in to peruse Les Trois Rois and sneak a peek at the 3-Michelin star Cheval Blanc. They had a cart of desserts on display that caught our attention right away as a gentleman serenaded us softly with classical piano music. The waiter agreed to "reserve" two beautiful macarons for us as we planned to return for dessert after dinner. We were blown away by the presentation and amazing flavors of the rose, raspberry, lychee macarons! The atmosphere is classic and romantic with views of the the famous Rhine river. If you want to have a fine dining experience without the opportunity or the means to afford a full dining experience in the restaurant, I highly recommend visiting the bar lounge for a memorable and enchanting experience.

Genteel extremely elegant bar perfect for a nightcap in Basel. They do have plenty of Louis X111 and Hennessy ‘Richard’ to stare at whilst having your beer and a fine chat with the bartender !

I was here with two friends of mine about two weeks ago for an aperitif that we enjoyed inside in the beautiful bar inside the gorgeous Trois Rois Grand Hotel. Excellent and privileged Rhein river view. Fantastic variety of drinks. Reasonable prices despite the luxury environment. Very professional and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

I was staying at this hotel and had a drink here one night. It's a very nice bar with seating outside overlooking the Rhine. But it is extremely expensive (19 CHF for a glass of wine). You get complimentary snacks which were good and better than your typical free nuts, chips or pretzels.
