Food is just average. Good service. Beautiful place. Really expensive. How expensive? Enough to buy very good food with a good service in a nice place for the same amount of people not once but twice. So = worth the money? NO. This view is shared by all the expat community; funny enough, most of the positive reviews come from... More

Excellent fish dishes and tasty sauces. A bit noisy location, since tables are quite close to each other.

Great 5 course meal for a fixed price of 90 something chf per person. All the meals were delicious and we were also given small appetizers before the first courses came out.

We went here for the business lunch and the food was amazing. The best I have had in Basel. And it was not expensive, which is a miracle in Basel.

What's not to recommend? The food was excellent and original. The service is impeccable. The wine selection is impressive. Great choice for business or celebration.

Situated close to Markplatz, this is one of the old Guild Houses of Basel. We had a very satisfactory meal with an attentive and helpful waitress. The food quality could not be faulted. Prices were typical for this standard in Basel - high by UK standards.

Really enjoyed the food - good quality, presentation and reasonable range of choice. Service was variable - couple of staff very good, but some not. But well worth a visit for the food at least

From the restaustants we have been in Basel, at that price level, it is the best so far. Everything was excellent. We had goat cheese with caramelized onions and a soup as starters, both amazing, and two extras were offered to us from the restaurant as a sample to try, both excellent. This gesture is something we really appreciate in... More
