Outstanding food quality and presentation, excellent wine selection, service staff a little slow and sloppy - if for the experience of the amazing qualities of the chef I would expect the same high standards from the service team.

We went to Cheval Blanc to celebrate a special occasion - and the restaurant just meet all expectation we had to be a "special threat" Staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was just exquisite and delicious ... allow yourself a lot of time to fully enjoy this experience Quite expensive ...but ...it's something you can do once...

The food is simply outstanding, the service impeccable. I felt like royalty sitting in a wonderful setting right by the Rhein.

You travelled to Basel to have dinner at Cheval Blanc and as Michelin says "Vaut le voyage". I cannot mention one single bite that was not perfect. We had the Chef 's proposed menu which I would strongly recommend. Even though it probably changes every day it is certainly the best way to appreciate the Chef's talent. Whether the cream... More

I don't go to a Michelin Three-Star restaurant with low expectations, so I was surprised to find mine exceeded on almost all points. It may not be helpful to focus too much on the menu we enjoyed, since it will likely be irrelevant in only a few days. But perhaps a sense of how the meal proceeded will help prepare... More

Stand aside Gordon Ramsey, Alain Ducasse, Heston Blumenthal, Wolfgang Puck, Tetsuya Wakuda and other Michelin and celebrity chefs. Now I only love Peter Knogl's cooking. If there is heaven, this is it. This shows that even among Michelin 3 Star and celebrity chefs, there is breathtaking food and there is what I call food for royalty. Cheval Blanc is the... More

We have nibbled our way round the world and eaten in many Michelin star establishments, but this by far the best we have experienced to date. We tried the tasting menu and can honestly say there was not a course which was not a triumph of culinary skill. Will definitely be back - well deserved of the three Michelin stars... More

Classic food in a beautiful, secluded atmosphere. Everything we had (and I've been there a few times) has been perfectly prepared. The atmosphere is a bit like a library - so don't expect a big happening "scene". Also, and this probably goes without saying, it's very very expensive. Even for a top notch place, it's expensive - but that's a... More

One of my top dining experiences ever. We weren't able to get a reservation for dinner but happily they had a lunch reservation open with a month's notice.
