The garden is opened but in the back of it the terrasse is not finished and not inviting like a nice dining place. I think the new restaurateur and his crew must not be very lucky with this actually sitzation.

The Schlussel is a restaurant with a few adjacent rooms and a good location if you like Italian cuisine. Brisk, friendly service and I would recommend the seabass washed down with a Burello.

We always stay in this hotel when we are visiting our customer. The hotel is very basic, but clean and efficient. The restaurant is very good and has a good selection of Italian food and wines. We keep coming here and can recommend the place.

We tried a pizza calzone and salami. The calzone was served black. After reclamation a new one was served, which had a practically raw egg in it. Also a bottle of wine was served, instead of the ordered glass of wine. Not a success unfortunately.

I have been to the restaurant Schluessel already a few times in the last 3 months and I have never been disappointed. The menue is always special, the bread served is delicious and the service is very friendly. In summer one can sit outside, but the atmosphere inside is very nice, too. It is definitely one of my favourite places... More

My boyfriend and I have been to Schlüssel 3 or 4 times so far and every time, the chef and the owners surprise us. The food is simply delicious, the wines exquisite and the service and the little attentions amazing! After having been to Schlüssel, all the other restaurants in the Basel region are simply disappointing!

Very nice dishes on the menu, plus several daily specials. Certainly not an average Italian restaurant. Big wine selection. Fresh high quality products end up on your plate, and that is also presented in the high price. You do get what you pay for.

I've eaten there many times. The food is always very good. The owners are extremely friendly and attentive, speak all the languages. Excellent wine list. Food is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Pizzas are the usual prices. Usually there are specials on offer. One minute from the Dorfplatz.

Thank 17clarence
