“A nice break from traditional Swiss food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

If you're looking for something with a bit more vegetables and international flair, this is the place in Basel. The menu is small, but excellent. Lunch is quick (order from the set menu) and dinner has a bit of a slower pace, but more variety. Everything we tried -- from vegeterian to fish -- was delicious. The location feels unique -- don't be nervous when you're entering what seems to be an abandoned elemantary school!

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten at the Cantina Don Camillo several times; we have never been disappointed! The food is excellent. The menu is small, exclusive and particularly attractive for vegetarians and vegans. Great and trendy atmosphere, the service is friendly and the view from the terrace is pretty cool!
