Welcoming atmosphere, very attentive staff, perhaps even too attentive. Always a reasonably priced choice for wine of the month 7.50SFR for 200ml: this is Switzerland. Cold buffet for appetisers with massive choice. 3 or 4 pasta, 3 risotto, 6 or so meat entrees , 10 pizza choices. Pleasant surroundings, cosy even on the most bitter evenings. Do not be put... More

A short walk from the hotel, and then an excellent place to eat. Good starter followed by veal liver; never had better, and never allowed them at home! Friendly and efficient service too. If I find myself in Basel again, I will certainly come again. A travelling medic.

My first meal here was in 1994, and while it is older, not much has changed. Good good, fab Swiss service and excellent pizzas. Keeps drawing me in

I went there after I looked at the excellent reviews on trip advisor. It was so disappointing. The buffet starters were stale and my main course of spaghetti vongole was just ordinary with some tomato sauce that tasted like it was straight out of a tin. The spaghetti itself wasn't fresh although the Clams were ok.

Dear UkWorldtravellerplus Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We always appreciate suggestions for improvement and are sorry that your expectations were not fulfilled. We can assure you that our tomato sauce is always freshly made; the idea with the spaghetti vongole is that the sauce should be subtle enough not to dominate the flavour of the... More

I came here with 2 coworkers. The atmosphere was very comfortable and welcoming! The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was also very delicious. If I am ever in Basel again I will definitely go back here and I recommend it to anyone in Basel.

Eastern here at least 20 times in last 4 years. It's really good. And very consistent. Close to the central train station, so very convenient for travelers. Not cheap, but hey, you're in Switzerland!
