“Wonderful meal, aber teuer...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

We stayed at the hotel next door and had dinner one evening, which was a good decision. The restaurant is in a lovely building, with amazing character in the reception area, and the restaurant itself is ?C18 influenced?
The menu is classically oriented, and food presented beautifully. Visually interesting, good range of textures, and intense tastes, for example the pea mousse and the lamb. Garlic soup with cream cheese sorbet a surprise hit, and something I will attempt one day! Staff pleasant.
Wine list is fine, but given the range of Swiss wines which know exist we were surprised to see - comparatively speaking - so few listed.
We'd eat here again for a special occasion, or any time that anyone else wants to treat us :)

“nice, but not quite worth the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

We have to admit, our expectations were high, as this place comes with a reputation. The location is very nice, staff is friendly and professional. Very comprehensive wine list with according prices. There is the possibility to have a pre-diner-drink in the main hall, and there is a smoker's lounge upstairs. There are two dining locations, the "Restaurant Français" and the "Schloss Taverne" - We were in the first, personally I like the ambience in the latter better.
As for the food, well, it is good, but not spectacular: price/value is out of balance.
Furthermore the place wasn't too busy when we were there, so slightly after 22:30 we were the only guests left - Which would not have bothered us much, if not the staff would have started to clean most things away, which left the slight impression they'd be rather happy if we paid and left.

“Very attentive staff and super food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

We recently attended Schloss Binningen for a wedding reception. The staff were very attentive and professional throughout and the food was well presented, cooked well and very tasty. Each guest had a choice for each course and all seemed to be served without the sort of mix up that could have easily ensued.The dessert was not served until midnight by which time the staff must have been on their knees but they continued to serve with a smile. I hasten to add that the lateness of the arrival of the dessert was in no way the fault of the restaurant or the staff but rather a full evening of planned events between each course that probably over ran somewhat.

“very recommendable restaurant in old castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012

this restaurant is placed in the old binningen castle - very nice old furniture with tasteful interior design.
super friendly staff and one of the best places i have eaten in switzerland.
the beverage selection is almost too much - we had phantastic 20 year old port wine and very good red wines from the region.

it is a very recommendable restaurant - i would always go back there.
