We were there today and had a classic fondue and a mini banana split (which turned out to be anything except mini LOL). The waiter was a real gentleman and very kind. We were very satisfied with the ambiente too (a beautiful old swiss house). The fondue was very tasty, but damn was it expensive guys... Even for Swiss standards,... More

We had made a reservation for 20 colleagues for cheese fondue. We had sent an email for booking and we got offered various options of menu. We opted for the famous Swiss cheese fondue (no starter and no dessert) as our budget was limited. When we got there, they served us salad without asking and charged 12chf per person (even... More

If you've never been to Switzerland and are hankering for some Valais specialties, then go no further than Walliser Kanne.

Our visit at the Walliser Kanne in Basel downtown was great. We especially enjoyed the cheese fondue with mushrooms and the cheese fondue with champagne and had a good white wine which was recommended by the staff. Very nice rustic atmosphere, definetly recommended for both business visits and meals with friends.

Fantastic service, good fondue, nice carpaccio, salad, and maybe a glass or two more wine wine than I should have had, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Was recommended by a Swiss friend who knows..., and he knew! Will be back in Basel soon and will go here again.

It's a very nice typically Swiss restaurant with very nice ambiance (a lot of wood) and very yummy food. A bit pricey, though (welcome to Switzerland!). Tip: try the liver either if you're a liver fan or not so much. It's really delicious!

SERVICE The service was quick and friendly; although a bit stressed. FOOD The fondue was excellent. VALUE FOR MONEY Walliser Kanne is really expensive. Fondue was CHF 34.00 apiece! For the caramel flan they charged CHF 16.00

Very traditional restaurant right in the heart of Basel downtown. I tried the classical Swiss cheese fondue and it was amazing. This one serve 2 persons.

We walked in for lunch at around 2, the restaurant was empty so we were not sure if they would serve. However we were pleasantly surprised, the waiter there was so friendly and helpful, and welcomed us. We had a very good meal. Thank you. A great fine dine experience.
