We had a business lunch here, service was smooth taken into account that we had a fairly big group of people. Food was excellent, tasty and also visually very nice. Some translations of the menu into English a bit misleading ir incorrect. Friendly staff. Lunch menu was not that expensive, but I can imagine that dinner can be pricey, especially... More

We had our departmant Christmas lunch today. The Staff is friendly and very nice.. The view from restaurant is stunning.. Unfortunately, food was average..I would expect a better menu and more creativity. I ate fish. It was dry and the pilaf was not good.

My mother and I happened to walk by this restaurant on our way to the Papiermuehle (the Paper mill and museum) and so we came back here for lunch after we visited the museum shop. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The lunch menu prices were very reasonable for Basel/Switzerland with main dishes (meat or fish) about 25-28... More

This is a very expensive place where you expect top service, which you actually get. But our food was not average and far away from being what you expect in such a place.

I enjoyed an excellent meal at this restaurant on a recent visit to Basel with some work colleagues. We had a very pleasant spiced watermelon soup that was excellent as a starter. An odd sounding dish but a very enjoyable one. This was followed by a very good steak. Dessert is difficult to describe - it was some sort of... More

We only stopped in for a couple of beers but the food and service seemed excellent. It is all very quiet and relaxed and you are not harried all the time but rather they wait for you to want service.

It's a tradition to go to this restaurant during Art Basel and it's never disappointing. Great food and ovely location on the Rhine River. If you are lucky with the weather, there's a lovely terrace.

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. We took a walk in the old town in Basel and tried to find it. After climbing several hills and asking numerous local citizens, who all said it was a wonderful restaurant, we finally found it. Since everyone said it was so great, we looked forward to a great meal.... More

I did not select this restaurant and was taken here for a team dinner, what a lovely experience. The food was absolutely amazing, we did not order from the restaurant menu given we were a group of 12. The wine was quite lovely, not Swiss wine but Italian selection! We sat in their outdoor backyard, definitely a win win, even... More
