We stopped here for lunch. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The menu of the day was very nice and reasonably priced for Basel. The location is perfect for shopping and there is outdoor seating for enjoying the weather and relaxing with a beer.

Very polite service, authentic interior. Good meals. Cheese fondue was tasty but be careful to order it for sharing because they charge full price for very young kids too.

The veal-schnitzel was disappointing. But, the three apple islands baked in crspy, crepe-like coatings, resting on creme-anglaise were scrumptious! Wish the chnitzle had been too. Pricey mid-range dining.

We were in Switzerland for a night, and it was therefore essential that we had fondue! Two of us shared a cheese fondue and a traditional sausage dish, which the staff were happy to allow us to do. I'm glad of this, as a single...More

Strong aroma of cheese wafted in the air the moment we were led into a semi booth spacious enough for three. Quite a few tables around us were having the cheese fondue but we are not huge cheese fondue fans so we opted for other...More
