This small restaurant is attentive to diner's needs and very good, authentic food. The fondue and desserts were great. Service excellent.

Come for the fondue and intimate ambiance-and make sure you wear comfortable clothing as you'll leave a little heavier. Great service (we went early), and reasonable pricing. The cheese fondue is epic, make sure you get a side of potatoes and vegetables to mix it up, since o Ly bread and cheese would be "unhealthy".

My experience in this resto was not exiting: the fondue was really good, and proportioned for two guest. I recommend it. However we were disappointed by the raclette: a total of 6 small potatoes with just a little bit of cheese. We also paid 51 CHF for a local wine that in the rest of Europe would be priced really...

Visited this restaurant on September 8, 2016. We were a group of 20 spending a few days in Basel before boarding our cruise of the Rheine on Emerald Sky. They were very accomodating and the food was delicious. We wanted a typical swiss meal and were not disappointed. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Basel.

It's a small swiss restaurant, very cozy. We've been there to have dinner and to taste a real fondue. It was delicious and the portion for 2 was very good and came with bread. Here in Switzerland, you can also eat small onions/cucumber pickles with the cheese (but it's an additional order) and I highly recommend that, this combination is... More

We wanted to try some traditional Swiss dishes but were sadly disappointed- not by the food itself but for the poor value for money and the deliberate waiter over ordering . We started with a feta salad (not very traditional ) and then raclette. The menu said that for the price quoted there were 2 servings of raclette - as... More

The restaurant is famous for its delicious fondue, but all the other dishes are very tasty too. In the summer you can sit outside. If you want a local taste than it is the pace to go. Reservation recommended

When in Basel and seeking fondue -- this is the place. Traditional fondue with generous portions. Everything about this place is wonderful -- the food, the host and the ambiance. Highly recommend!

So we were told we had to go to a traditional fondue place and this was the place to go. It is open early and close to the train station. There is outdoor seating but it is right next to the team tracks. I asked for a big bottle of bubbly water --- he brought us 2 small ones. When... More
