On a Sunday evening, after a long day of travel, I didn't want to go exploring for dinner. I stumbled upon the Brasserie in of all places the Rail station! It is a huge dining room, with elegance and warmth that is an oasis in the midst of this bustling station. I loved that I could find Veal a la... More

We wanted to find something close by and relatively cheap by Swiss standards. The Bistro at the station is clean, the service and food good. Not fine dining by any means but good value

Plus points: Located in the train station. Big spacious restaurant and well decorated, although a bit worn looking. A TV screen at the end of the room entertained the customers with programmes on soccer matches etc. Minus points: Waitress who served us was polite and helpful. But we waited quite long for food to be served. The salad we ordered... More

This restaurant is very well located if you need a meal near to the station and it has a very pleasant atmosphere with interesting decor. It is a large establishment so could accommodate big parties. Prices are quite high but that is to be expected in such a prime location. We were attracted because it had a choice of vegetarian... More

- A rare and fantastic decor in with paintings on the walls I still remember as a child. - You can have a fine dinner, enough distance between tables - service is friendly but a bit lost since the place is huge and you have to shout or search them. But they are of a rare kindness - Prices are... More

Nice place with a good location. The food is way too expensive. And not of a good quality. Quite tasteless to be honest. The waiters are not obaervant either. So expect to wait everytime you wanna order anything

Its difficult to find a restaurant in Basel which serves reasonably priced local food. This brasserie fits the bill. A lovely high ceilinged room that looks as if its come out of the last century. You can get the menu in English and they have specials too. The food was good but the waiter service very slow, we were ignored... More

Very efficient waitstaff - but she was frustrated by my dining companion who wanted to chat longer before he ordered. Oddly, despite our ordering at 12:30pm, they ran out of the soup of the day for one of my companions. No loss - really salty soup. Several perchpike dishes on menu in addition to other easy choices for travelers from... More

Inside the main railway station in Basel is a hidden gem. it feels a little like stepping back in time when people might have taken luncheon here as they transferred from a French train onto a Swiss one to travel on to the Alps. The calmness remains. Its a huge room with a sense of space and history. The menu... More
