Surprisingly good around a boring typical German cuisine. Rich wine list with a surprise of red Margalit wine from Israel, it is not obvious and common in every fine restaurant Good and professional service Recommend!!!

I was taken here by a friend for a major birthday celebration in the family. The food (all four courses) was excellent. The service was a bit slow... this is a statement of fact, not a complaint, since we had lots of time and spent 3 hours there. The staff are friendly. All in all, it was a nice experience.... More

I'm living in Hanover for 2 years and for me this is so far the best restaurant in town. They have always different menus very good all the food is done by professionals. The wine list is very complete and the employees are very friendly. Per person with wine and desert you must prepare at least 60€. But they are... More

I had dinner at Basil with friends and colleagues on a recent trip to Hannover and it was by far the best overall dinner experience I had during my stay in Germany. The service was excellent overall; the staff was very friendly, attentive, and bilingual. All of the food that I ordered (apps, main course, & dessert) was fantastic; everything... More

I had the small menu which consisted of 5 smallish courses of deliciously tasty and varied food, ranging from crab bisque with beetroot foam, beef cooked 3 ways, slow braised beef cheekies (yep, that's what it said on the menu) to a delicious fresh orange crème brûlée. The service... More

This place is simply fantastic for a nice romantic dinner, the food is Fusion and tastes great, as usual in this restaurants portions are not big so you can try a couple of dishes and enjoy the atmosphere.
