Busy but good service, friendly and warm, even sat outside in early evening, with blankets. Good mix of people, welcoming. So much so we returned again following evening for quick drink, repeating enjoyable experience.

Small stop off for a few beers after a day sightseeing around Basel. Prices high but that's all across this city so it's expected. Busy but plenty of tables available. Staff speak great English and no issues ordering drink or food.

Probably like most bars in Switzerland this is expensive. Spirits particularly cost a lot. £ 12.00 for spirits ! We stopped here for a quick drink and it's right opposite the Christmas markets in Barfusserplatz. Great little spot for people watching but you certainly wouldn't get too merry on these prices!!!!

Only stopped for a couple of beers for four of us. Nice location, right next to one of the Christmas markets. Bar downstairs is a little cramped so take advantage of the outside tables. I know Switzerland is a little pricey compared to some other countries but paying 14+ CHF for a Bacardi and coke did seem a little excessive.... More

The Stockli Bar at Barfussplatz was busy every evening I passed by the area. I thought to give the place a try in the early afternoon before the place filled up for evening rush. There is sidewalk seating at the front with great people watching access and views of the History Museum, all this as the trams were passing by... More

I always take my visits there to eat different types of Rösti in the first floor. But there is very little space, so no groups, max 4 person.

Dropped in for lunch. My wife had the Wednesday special that included a tomato and arugalu salad and chicken curry pasta. Very good. I had the goulash soup - lots of meat and potatoes and a fresh green salad with EVOO and balsamic vinegar. Yum. Good choice of beer and wine. Handy to Barfusserplatz.

Had I read the TripAdvisor reviews I wouldn't have gone to this restaurant. On this occasion I'm glad I hadn't. We went upstairs and ordered a different rosti potato dish each. One with ham and egg, the other with cheese. Both delicious! The waitress was very pleasant and friendly. No problem to take the dish with eggs back and cook... More

Pity that a place like this is called restaurant. The façade is really beautiful and it is the highlight of the square. I should say: poor kitchen. I tried the fish and chips. I tried because i could not eat and I left it all. Too Expensive for this bad quality. I suggest to transform this "restaurant"in a bar, not... More
