Description: At the nostalgic tavern with beautiful wooden tables, antique parquet flooring and black metro-tiling behind the bar, the restaurant Zum Goldenen Fass serves marketfresh dishes which have got that certain something. The a la carte menu is small and includes a menu surprise. Night owls also get their share here: Moules, Fish'n'Chips and meatballs are served with homemade bread till late. And for the after hours head to the Fass-Bar nextdoor. From time to time you can enjoy a concert in the little hall at the first floor: fine food and feelgood ambiente at the heart of Kleinbasel!

Goldenes Fass serves authentic local style food. We had the surprise menu, which was a great choice! The menu has few items on it, but those are being made really good. Friendly and fast service. Would certainly come back and would recommend to visit!

It came recommended from my local friends, so I gave it a try. Reservation worked perfectly, yet we felt a bit squashed-in. While I understand that they want to accommodate as much guests as possible, a bit more space between each table would be a clear plus. Service is friendly and, as the place itself, very casual. A small selection of dishes is available, the winelist has a bit of everything. Food was all right, but far from impressive, considering price/value.
I wasn't quite sure if the bathroom meant to be full of graffities or if it has been spoiled just recently; it does not look proper.
If you are in the area and tried all the other places, then go. But if you only have 2-3 nights, there are far better choices in this town.
