In full honesty one should say the setup and location on the banks of the Rhine are absolutely great. You do feel compelled to get a table when seeing the entrance, especially at twilight time when all the nice lights are lit and make the place look positively special. Then things take quite a turn. I ordered Coq au vin... More

Sitting on a hot summer day above the Rhine in a cool breeze having a light alcoholic drink (like a Hugo), blink into the sun - and life is fun! They cook excellent light meals, salads and special cold soups in a tiny kitchen.If you intend to have dinner there you should better call for a reservation.

Interesting place, a combination of rhineswimming and light lunch. Food is quite expensive and hardly has anything really interesting (though nothing bad either). You can go swimming in the middle of coffeebreak, they also have changing rooms. Evening view is really nice. Would really be good if they had more food choices and skyhigh prices.

Just a beautiful place to spend time on a sunny day. You sit on the Rhine River just across from the Roche Tower, Basel's new landmark. Relax and enjoy the boats and vessels lfoating by - yes, even the swimmers. You can just have a drink or order meals throghout the day.

Veronica used to be good. It is not anymore. It is expensive, and the food is of poor quality for the money. The location however is great, especially for sunsets. And the bar ist the much better deal. Same location, same view, and the chocolate cake or meatloaf you can get there are good value for money.

I used to not eat here because the menu was so limited. Now I tried their more upscale (if still limited) menu and was terribly disappointed. I had pork filet with Wasabi sauce and was served a big chunk of meat (actually 2), that was covered in a brown gelatinous mass (42 CHF). The side? A form-shaped semi circle mountain... More

Menu looks pretty ok. Prices a bit too high. We had only a drink. Venue is fantastic. Service was ok. We'll definitely be back for a lunch asap.

It's nice during daytime! More of a place to take a coffee or something small to eat or simply a drink while you enjoy the sun. As a restaurant there's more to wish, but as a place to hang out at during summer it's super!

The restaurant has a fantastic location, you're sitting on a plattform above the river and from up there you have a nice sourround view of the city. Nevertheless, my experience was very unpleasant - an over-eager waiter more or less ruined the evening for us. 1. He was very pushy, didn't ask if we would like to drink some wine,... More

Best open air restaurant experience on the Rhine. Terrific food, but need to pay in cash. Good weather required and you can swim directly on the level below the restaurant in the Rhine current on the spot.
