“you deserve it - an impeccable restaurant”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We usually go to the Cheval Blanc if we have to celebrate something or just want to reward ourselves and business partners. A la carte menues are great and there is actually nothing I can really highlight as we have tried almost everything. The Michelin star speaks for it self and the sommelier makes good recomendations. Service is fine, they way you expect it for the price. A lovely place, where you can simply enjoy your food with family and business partners. Actually my no. 1 in Basel whereby the pricing is quite high. Recommendable? Absolutely it is worth it - reward yourself and your partners 3 course biz-lunch.

“The best dinner”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

The food was extremely good and the service was excellent. The ingredient used was fresh and the best which makes all the difference. I wouldn't change a thing. I order Veal Cordon Bleu and it was the best I've tested. I hope to revisit this restaurant and try a different dish.

“Couldn't be better...”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Excellent dinner - beyond criticism.

Had a romantic dinner for two and it was absolutely fantastic. Everything was delicate, balanced and fabulously presented and executed. Highlight was probably the leg of lamb for two, but a starter of crab and caviar was also fantastic.

The service was first class - excellent wine choices by the sommelier, and the waiting staff were attentive but not overly so, and shared some humour when appropriate.

A fantastic meal. Can't wait to return

“Outstading restaurant”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This luxurious place is awarded with two stars of Michelin and its gastronomic patron Peter Nogl is really talented. The dishes of the international cuisine are perfect.
A bit overcrowded on weekend, so book a table in advance (via Comfortway.com for example).
Polite service.

“A memorable afternoon”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had lunch here as the evening had a waiting list on the only day we were in Basel. It was a glorious afternoon sat on the terrace in the warm sun looking over the river flowing below. The food was just beautiful and the wine suggested by the sommelier an equal match. As good, if not better, than most places we have eaten, but perhaps not with quite the wow factor of l'enclume or the wit of Purnells (both in England). Excellent though and not to be missed if you are near Basel.
