The restaurant has a great internal space which is very atmospheric. The menu is typically Swiss as is the good service.
If you’re part of the small group, be prepared to share your table.

This place has one of the most beautiful gardens in Basel. Unfortunately it is pretty expensive for what they serve.

The restaurant, reputedly the best in Basel, is housed in the former artist’s clubhouse at the base of the city’s art museum, also worth a visit. The lush murals of scantily clad ladies are reminiscent of those at the now closed Café des Artistes in New York. We are hovered over by several waiters and an obsequious maitre d’, but far from being onerous the service and crisp table linen is a pleasant change from the fast food world around us. This is clearly a place for fine dining. We arrive for dinner on the last day of the asparagus season, and three of our quartet order tender white spears, beautifully served. Two of our party also have an outstanding steak Tatare, always a difficult dish to pull off well. Over coffee, I’m introduced to Swiss single malt whisky, something new every day. Very expensive. Total with wine CHF 574.

Despite nice location and positioning, place is more like a canteen, than a Reastaurant. Average food, high prices, uncomfrtable chair, a LOT of waiters who're creating more mess than fast and good service and on top of it - nearly absent air conditioning. really nothing to do there.

Excellent service, small menu but a very tasteful choice.
Location is very central and well marked.
Will definitely go back again , when I'm next in Basel, for the invaluable service.
Well done team of Kunsthalle....
