The dining room is wonderfully old-fashioned and the chef has modernized traditional plates without getting too trendy (small portions and weird combinations).

I was really suprised by the quality of this restaurant because usually you can find only touristic traps in the city center. The food was delicious and beautifully served. The staf was friendly and efficient. The weather was good and we were sitting outside but I had a look at the interior - it is very beautiful.

Nice atmosphere, good attentive service, tasty imaginative menu.

Attention to small detail.

Central location, near Markplatz. Used to be the old guild hall, retains some old character features but has a modern twist.

If you travel to Basel you'll soon find out that it's really expensive. This restaurant had high quality delicious food at reasonable prices for an American in Basel. I had a the Asian salad with shrimp and it was simply delicious and refreshing, especially after all the heavy food and meat I'd been eating so far in Europe. The service was very attentive as well and had no problem splitting up the receipt for the 4 of us who all had to submit reimbursement requests.

We went to this restaurant on Saturday night with our son and his girlfriend and it was fantastic. The service was exceptional and all the courses were truly amazing. The decor was lovely, worth getting dressed up for! The wine we ordered was very nice, as were the other alcoholic beverages. One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. If you are coming to Basel make sure you pay this place a visit, you will be glad you did.
