I went to Zum Isaak for dinner on a monday night with family. We had a complete meal, from starters to dessert and discovered a very elaborated swiss cuisine with a touch of french influence. The panfried goat cheese was awesome, as well as the deer and the lamb. We also had a very good bottle of Chianti.
The location is also something to mention, right in front of the Cathedral, right outside of the restaurant is one of the best places to admire Basel by night. Highly recommended

Meal worth the rough service as there is so little affordable in Switzerland. Affordable and acceptable.

Had solo dinner here while travelling on business. Located just opposite the cathedral, this is a nice casual but atmospheric place for dinner, coffee or dessert. Lovely garden in the back with fairy lights during warmer months.

Menu changes daily with fish, meat and vegetarian options. Wine list is small but good choices. Entree and one glass was around GBP 30, so very good value for Basel.

Staff also very helpful and friendly. I will come again!

Nice place in the old Basel with a good atmosphere. Generally they have art exhibition in their premises and when we went there there was some really nice paintings by a young Basel painter. It's a good place to relax after a business day, you can have a good beer and some food. Good quality food and good value for money (according to restaurant cost in Switzerland!)

Definately one of my top choices in Basel for a quality meal. Great and friendly service, neat location, and wonderfully tasty menu. There were 4 of us and we all got something different and everyone was very happy with their choice. Highly recommend!
