“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

What can I say - it's the best restaurant ever!! I've just got back from lunch there with a friend and the food was the best. I absolutely love this restaurant. I have visited a couple of times before and have never been disappointed but today I decided that if I could only ever eat in one restaurant it would be here. From the relaxed atmosphere (it's not stuffy at all for a 2 star restaurant) to the fantastic flavours of the food - how do they do that? The staff are very nice - not in your face either. The presentation is amazing. I'm at a loss for words but if you ever get the chance to eat here do - you will not regret it.

“A mixed bag of Emotions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Dining at a truly top class establishment raises expectations to the highest notch. We enjoyed the full dinner menu but without the help of the written descriptions in front of us we would have had a hard time identifying what each of the 9 courses (except the excellent cheese selection of course) contained. The inaudibly mumbled verbal announcement preceding each course was not helpful, especially if delivered without a smile. This slight criticism notwithstanding we appreciated that it must be a bore to repeat something like: "this is a pike perch in miso marinade with sesame fennel in mint oil...etc." every evening at each table covering all dishes.
Tanja Grandits' style is truly unique and very innovative - for some guests with more traditional tastes and pallets less sophisticated, perhaps a trifle too inventive.
The wine list is a treasure and even those less fortunate can find a good bottle they can finance. Mr. Graf Grandits knows his wines and can give expert advice so that the guests culinary experience can be rounded off by well matched vintages.
One of the Senior Contributors on Trip Advisor mentioned that the Mojitos are outstanding. Do not believe him. As experts on cocktails we must advise against such experiments. Just stick to a glass of Champagne or Prosecco if you desire to begin the dinner fete with an aperitif.
Unless you wish to carry a lot of cash to dinner it is also advisable "not to leave home without it" i.e. a credit card

“Great for a Business lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

I had an excellent business lunch at the Stucki - Tanja Grandits is a talented chef and uses excellent produce. The food was extremely enjoyable with excellent service which was both professional and informative without being over bearing. My favourite restaurant in Basel.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The food at the 'Stucki Bruderholz' is of really good quality. It's very fresh and seasoned nicely. I started with a perfectly cooked carabiniero, then I had veal with asparagus. Then I had an amazing chocolate dessert. The service is very friendly and professionel. It is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Basel!
