Visited for dinner with some business colleagues after a long day of travel. Service was very good and food was delicious. I had the artichoke salad starter and the mushroom risotto. Both very tasty. Only downside for business travelers is they don’t accept American Express....More

We stumbled upon this gem while walking around the old town. Off the main drag, away from the trams and street traffic behind the shopping street. Just perfect for lunch.

It has a mixed menu of Swiss and Italian dishes. Unfortunately not enough of either to provide a good selection. Food was okay. Limited low end wine list at okay prices.

Good local Swiss meal and beer in pleasant atmosphere. Just steps from hotel and opening on nice small plaza. Food was very good and fairly priced for Basel.

We visited this restaurant, close to Marktplatz, as a group on a sunny Saturday afternoon and were seated outside. It wasn't busy and we had a leisurely, unhurried meal, chatting and people watching. The menu includes pizzas, burgers, flannkuchen, etc. I had the gratinee flan...More

We loved our meal here. We had dinner in late April. The pasta was excellent with large portions and we really enjoyed the pizza too. Got bruchetta for an appetizer and an ice cream sundae for dessert. The perfect vacation meal. It was amazing. The...More
