Our first meal was extremely disappointing - service and food - so were invited by the Patron to try his Restaurant again which we did and I'm very happy to say that we were pleased with the result - so alls well that ends well!

I like this restaurant, we have shared an awesome swiss fondue and As main dish I had roasted pork with smashed potatoes and a great beer. The service is a bit slow though. The place is also very nice in side, well decorated plenty of room. I'll go back for sure. Thanks!

Overpriced microwave food. They don't even know how to do a proper fondue. Meat tasted blend and other dishes were average and overpriced too. The waiter did his best but of course wasn't passionate because of the food he was serving. I don't recommend this place.

We ate here after being told this was a traditional Swiss restaurant. The service was good. The food was good. Pork ribs and cordon bleu schnitzel were our main courses. Lovely atmosphere.

Day before we leave Basel with my girlfriend and her eye caught Restaurant Lowenzorn. We had problem the previous days to find a place to eat that does not serve Italian or Chinese or Japanese food. Do not misunderstand we love all three but in Basel we wanted something more local. The food we had was very tasty and came... More

The restaurant seems lovely and the menu very interesting, but we only tried the Sunday brunch buffet. Every Sunday, they offer an all-you-can eat brunch buffet for CHF 29.5 pp. There is a decent variety of meats and cheese, sausages, pastries, bread, cereal etc. They make you fresh eggs and whatever coffee or tea you wish. The staff was pleasant... More

We were told that it had improved but that wasnt the case. Had to wait so long for the food and then when it came it was luke warm and the potatoes were hard. Service poor. Would certainly not go there again.

I was here for a group banquet in a beautiful room (Intarsiensaal) with remarkable wood inlays and stained glass windows. I had the pumpkin soup followed by the calf liver and rösti, which were all very good. The staff were friendly and generous. Highly recommended! A memorable experience, and highly recommended.

We were disappointed by the food, especially when the bill came! One of us had a veal schnitzel that, despite being the size of the dinner plate, was surprisingly full of gristle. The other meal was a veal bratwurst that was well cooked, but too mild. The portions were large. It's pretty expensive to eat there.
