Lunch: Ordered a large soup, received it half full. When I asked if they could add a little more, (with a nice "please") I was told that they will charge me more if they do so. Payed 12.50 CHF, the soup was okay, me I was still hungry af when I walked out of there. Not really a nice way... More

Well presented and expertly constructed. Like a Swiss watch, the two soups we had were delicious beyond anything we expected. Staff are friendly and informative. We had such a great experience there.

My favourite composer of all time, Ludwig van Beethoven, was something of a soup fanatic and once said so very wisely: "Only the pure in heart can make a good soup". Well, Soup Basel certainly knows how to make a good soup or two and I can highly recommend this establishment to anybody else who enjoys good soups.

This is a lovely restaurant with homemade, delicious soups. They have four different daily soups, also vegetarians alternative, and you can enjoy a small or large portion. The staff is really friendly and welcoming. This place has cosy interior, no chain feeling. I would welcome more this kind of lunch options. Thank you for wonderful soups! I will come back... More

This restaurant specializes in selling soup. All the soup they make is excellent. There is no comparison. This restaurant has specialized in something most restaurants sell but don't specialize in and it has wrked very well for them. Perfect for if you are in the mood for soup.
