“Lovely homely atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Had a nice dinner here, surrounded by swiss families and couples. The service was good and friendly despite being busy. The food was good but nothing special. They have traditional swiss dishes.

“Specialises in wild boar and other traditional dishes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Enjoyed two good meals here. The food is of good quality but rather too much meat for my taste. Also they seem less keen to serve in the early evening. We preferred a more relaxing pub meal on other occasions.

“Great atmosphere, delicious meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Set in the panelled rooms of a typical Basler clique (look up Fasnacht for more details) with a mixture of dining hall state refectory hall tables, you know this is not going to be the normal style of romantic tete-a-tete experience but the atmosphere and the volume soon cranks up as more people arrive. Nice varied menu (Swiss-German), reasonable prices for Switzerland, fair wine list, good attentive service all made for a good experience. The chef hand-delivered our meals (nice touch this) and the food was delicious; we had Kalbsleberli and Roesti, and Getschneltzerli (sorry about the spelling). We both agreed we would definitely come back.

“Geshmach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Loved the outdoor courtyard on a warm summer evening. Nice, prompt service.

Expect traditional Swiss favorites capably prepared with quality ingredients, not exciting, just hearty and satisfying. Schnitzel was generous and well made, shared a lovely (and large) Greek salad. Skip the grilled skewered pork, just ordinary. Lovely french fries, nice on-tap beers. We paid 120 Swiss francs for the two of us with two meals, the shared salad and medium beers. Too full to even consider dessert.
