This vegetarian restaurant is in a good location in the center of Basel. There are many different styles of settings and in the summer the outdoor tables are very popular. Excellent food and delicious drinks and juices. I do love to eat meat, but every time when I am eating in there I am tempted to convert to a vegetarian.... More

I really like the atmosphere of this place. It is elegant and alive. I would say it is mostly a place to go with friends as it is always loud and crowded. The reason why it is so popular is that it offers good food at a reasonable price. It is a self service restaurant with a buffet which means... More

The restaurant is furnished very cosy, with a comfortable atmosphere. Unfortunately they don't offer any meat at all. Only vegetarian and vegan food are served, but those do taste exquisite. The prices in opposition to other restaurants are one of the highest of the whole city (price is defined by food's weight)!

Great concept, although like all things Swiss just a bit pricy. Very tasty veggie and vegan food, lots of choice and daily changing offerings, including sweets. Don't forget your free roll (just don't weigh it)

This had a very different atmosphere to most of the restaurants in Basel, it was extremely crowded and busy which created a buzzy, lively vibe. We visited for a work apero and enjoyed some good cocktails. The finger food was very flavoursome and tasty, tempting us to visit in the future. On the whole a good atmosphere with well-prepared food... More

Veggie/vegan friendly place. Self-serve (buffet style, pay by weight), was busy at peak lunchtime. The food was delicious with tons of options. The juices were also great!

It is indeed one of the best value for the money you pay restaurant in town. Original recipes and combination. Great atmosphere, easy going and open kitchen during the whole afternoon in case you are not on the conventional schedule times for lunch or dinner! Enjoy it! Special corner and space for kids is just a plus !

This is a fabulous place to eat if you wish to eat vegetarian or vegan food. Since every dish is labeled, with ingredients listed, choices are easy! Everything I have ever tried was delicious - and you can choose as much or as little as you like, since it is buffet-style. Every time I am in Basel, I try to... More

The buffet system is great,esp for those seeking vegetarian food in Basel.Good decor, ample space on two floors. However, it can turn out to be expensive as you are charged based on the weight of your plate.
