A good restaurant for a special occasion. The food is fine, seasonal, nicely served. I had been there a few time and was never disappointed.

Went to Krafft with some expectation. The location is fantastic, right on the river. We sat outside and indeed the view is superb for people watching and river views! That's where the greatness stops. The food was at best average. I had beef which was...More

Slow service, mediocre food, high prices. Needed water to take a pill, 5 dl of local water cost 6.4 euros on the dinner tab. Tables set-up like old-style military mess halls and good luck having anyone help you find a set and get menus to...More

The restaurant has decent quality fish dish to offer. There are not so many of them in Basel. However, the service is slow. It's also quite expensive.More
