We were on our way to the airport and came across this Brasserie. The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. The service was excellent and the ambiance was good in the large dining hall. A good people watch. The bus to the airport was right outside the station and they come every few minutes. The ticket...

Ate here on Sunday 11th for a family reunion - there were 17 of us from the UK and Switzerland, ranging in age from 5-79. We were well looked after and the food was very good, with everyone finding something they liked. Service was good. Only slight negative was the cost of drinks - bottles of table water were 6...

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

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
