Basel is quite expensive so this place was reasonably priced. Pint of beer 6.80CHF which is cheap for Basel. Food was good size serve and very tasty. Waitress had good English which was a bonus. Well worth a visit.

We enjoyed some of the best fondue imaginable at this very excellent restaurant in Basel. We would definitely return.

This restaurant is the best for beer fondue, where instead of adding to the cheese schnapps or white wine they use beer, that definitely gives a special flavor to the fondue and on top they serve it with bretzels

The menu of the Linde looked interesting and original. We were surprised to learn that there is only a very limited menu on Saturdays. So we got to choose from eight boring dishes. You can only order the exciting beer specialities on weekdays. The meat was acceptable, the vegetables were overcooked. We were charged CHF 25 for a mixed salad... More

Previous comments suggest this restaurant is expensive. However for Basel this is good value. I went to another restaurant I could easily pay 50% more for a similar meal. The atmosphere is lively and morning portly they serve the local Ueli beer. The menu has a reasonable variety of choices, albeit with a beer themed sauce, and is tasty. The... More

I have been suffering from restaurant sticker shock since arriving in Basel 10 days ago, but this restaurant is an exception to the rule: the food was perfectly fine and the prices were actually affordable (though not cheap). The people were friendly, too. I had the roast pork which came with rosti and some mixed veggies. My husband enjoyed his... More

Very good. Ueli beer from the micro brewery is fresh and tasty. Very friendly service. I always try to make it here when in Switzerland.

The waitress walked away not happy... More

Let me begin with that being in Switzerland and especially in Basel you have to understand that prices are not like in other countries. This restaurant has many positives: Fisrt of all the staff. They all know English and the lady at the service welcomes you with a big and kind smile. Secondly is :UELI Beer... I have tasted as... More
