Five of us arrived for dinner. The restaurant is quite small. You need reservations. They change the menu daily I believe. The menu is limited. So you might want to call and ask what is on the menu that day. They have both plain entrees, fish, and exotic venison and rabbit, as well as others. The meal comes complete with... More

Set in a lovely location on the banks of the Rhine, this restaurant is a must visit when in Basel. They have an outdoor seating as well during summer, so you can try to get a table in this area. The food is excellent and the service as well. We had a lovely dinner at Rhywyera on our first night... More

We were searching for a restaurant with a view of the Rhein, but it turned out the only way to get the view is by sitting on the patio and the weather has gotten too cold at the end of October for doing that. Nevertheless, the food was surprisingly good! My cod dish was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. The... More

I was here with a group of professional colleagues but despite the technical discussions around the table the evening atmosphere over the river managed to fascinate us. This is a small place with very high quality standards. I was a bit disappointed not to have fish, but the stuffed chicken was very nice although the risotto a bit dry for... More

We have visited Rhywyera a number of times and used the second story for business functions where you can have a private sit down function for 20-25 people. The wine selection is good and reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and make for a pleasant evening.

Located on the river, this is a beautiful Swiss restaurant with fine dining, great staff overseen by the owner. I had a lovely meal on my own with a table facing the river- try to sit in the window. I enjoyed the food, the wine and the setting. I would definitely return. Lovely spot.

This restaurant is just on the Rhine very centrally located, just opposite of the three kings. The meal is very nice and the service is very good. They always serve fish and meat. The restaurant is on the expensive side.

We were in Basel for the Europa League final and wanted somewhere to eat on the Rhine. This place was perfect. It was expensive but the food was elegant and delicious . We also drank some lovely Swiss wine sitting on the terrace with a view of the fast flowing river. The staff were friendly and helpful and we ended... More

Great food, very friendly service but the prices are pretty steap for Basel. Nevertheless, the food tasted extraordinary and for a dinner every once in a while it is absolutely worth visiting

In the centre of lively "Kleinbasel", one of the hotspots of the city, you'll find our restaurant, located in one of the oldest buildings of Bale, dating back to the 14th century. A terrace provides a lovely view over the river Rhine where you can see the city's landmark hotel "Les trois Rois" . Spread over two floors, we offer contemporary, modern and creative cuisine, focusing on regional dishes and seasonal ingredients in a Mediterranian ambience, to create a feeling of culture and joie de vivre. Our restaurant offers seating for 40 guests indoors with additional space for 25 guests outside in the terrace and another 40 seats on our first floor, in the Bacchusstube.
