We went here one evening and were lucky to be seated without a reservation. The food here is simple and delicious. Worth the visit if you are seeking simple local food.

We had a set menu for lunch which was really good value and included steak at no extra cost. The staff did a really good job of hosting us. Would return on my next visit.

The "Schnabel" is one of the oldest and most traditional restaurants in town. With its cosy atmosphere it is very characteristic for Basel and the place where locals meet. It is firmly ancered in the customs of this town and during the Carnival worth a look! It is well known for its good plain cooking and local specialities, fine wines and a large range of quality beers on tap. We speak several languages and have English & French Menus available.
