Brunch in Basel and saturday night

I'm giving my Basel born husband a prolonged weekend in Basel from 11-15 April. I would like to have Brunch on saturday or sunday - any recommandations? Also anything special happening in Basel in that period? Maybe suggestions for saturday night out - as this is our first trip to Basel without our children for many many years:-)

Many hotels offer brunch during the weekends as well as restaurants.

The Löwenzorn restaurant is doing a very good one for 30 francs as dos the hotel drei könige for 129 francs. And you have everything in between.

These two are the most known. However, I suggest that you decide on your day and then depending on that and of where you stay decide on your brunch.

Would you like a walk around town? Going to the zoo? A Rhein trip?

What would be more to your taste?

When you will be here, there is the blues festival which you might like.

I think the zoo is a must, and a walk in the old town also. In hope to go walking near the roman ruins also and maybe a trip to Rheinfall.

Ok, so what about having your brunch in the zoo. it is a very very informal self-serve restaurant and I know that all Beppis (Balser) love it.

Here is an opinion of another local:

Don't go to Gare du Nord or rostiger Anker. These places are not really romantic for a couple's getaway.

Try Goldener Sternen, on the Banks of river Rhine. Oldest restaurant of Basel. Not cheap, but worth it.

High above the town center is the following french brasserie: Au violon! . Very nice and better affordable. In the summer you eat normally outside under a tree, looking over Basel.

Last but not least: Restaurant Schnabel. In the sumer you can sit in the nearside lane. Local food, beer and good wine. Lot of locals. I often eat here.

Enjoy my city!

Thank you all for you inputs. I think I will go for local stuff like Restaurant Schnabel. Does anyone know where to go to enjoy the Blues festival? I will post the result upon return from the trip.

Blues festival is at the Volkshaus, near Claraplatz, on the northern bank of the Rhine. Easy to reach with tram no. 8, 14 or bus 34.
