We visited that restaurant early evening and were lucky to find a table. We had a Swiss Fondue with two small glasses of wine and beer and Coke beforehand. Paid 100 Swiss Franks for that. We asked for some TAP WATER and were told that...More

Went on a Sunday night and the place was very busy - probably need to book in advance as we did. It was very relaxed, with a good buzz of conversation all around us. The staff were all very friendly. We both opted for original...More

Fab service, great fondue and amongst the best chateaubriand I have ever tasted. Good wine list although pricey! Recommend that children share a dish - 21 francs each and large portions

I went there with colleagues. We ate typical food (made of cheese: Ratkel and cheese fondou), which was good. We also ordered a Wiener Schnitzel, which was prepared in front of us (amazing!). The environment is elegant and traditional. Prices are fair, considering Swiss level.

We stopped here for lunch. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The menu of the day was very nice and reasonably priced for Basel. The location is perfect for shopping and there is outdoor seating for enjoying the weather and relaxing with a beer.

We can't say if it was unfortunate weather at 11 degree Celsius in the mid of September, but as it happens, we were meeting friends ( a couple) for cheese fondue, a signature Swiss treat. The staff were courteous and friendly from the get go....More

We called into this restaurant purely by chance, looking for somewhere to eat and not knowing what we wanted to eat or where! It was a Saturday evening, the restaurant was full, we didn't have a reservation so we decided to have a drink at...More
