Not only did this place have the cheapest drinks but it was one of the coolest we came across in Basel. Food was great and the staff were amazing. Really nice, friendly atmosphere.

We're certainly trying out the 'locals' where we live, and we pass Hirschenck everyday, so it was an easy choice to drop in for a drink and a bite to eat. First we had drink outside, while the sun was going down. There’s always a...More

Very local, hipster atmosphere. In the middle of our dinner, a wonderful flamenco dancer came in and gave a little show. Very generous servings. Went there again for lunch the next day!

A particularly nice place for vegan/vegetarian/others. The ingredients are super fresh and the spices are hearty and very balanced. Good local beers (including unfiltered). The portions are quite ample, and prices moderate. I recommend.

alternative collective Restaurant. Very good vegetarian/vegan food, cooked with passion and imagination and with an eye on prices. A place to be if you want to live the informal political & cultural Basel scene.
