Incredibly bad service: Gourmet Bar @ Novotel City Basel (2. August 2018)

Given I was short on time, I decided to eat in the hotel I was staying and I went for the “mixed Swiss gourmet plate” (CHF 16.00) as a starter. The selection of cold cuts and cheeses was actually quite fine, however, there was one major downside to it all. It took them a solid […]

Quick lunch but no atmosphere: Restaurant Schwyzerhüsli (23. July 2018)

Quick lunch but no atmosphere: Restaurant Schwyzerhüsli (23. July 2018)

Sometimes you really just have to get something into your system and be quick about it. The restaurant Schwyzerhüsli looked like such a place. There were only a couple of locals drinking beer so I figured, this must be quick and simple food. And I went for the “fitness plate (chicken with salad)” (CHF 21.50) […]

Delicious four course menu with exquisite service: Restaurant Teufelhof (26. June 2018)

The Teufelhof is apparently one of the best restaurants in Basel and I must say that I tend to believe that after my experience. There is a nice selection of “butter” to start … … with a selection of some different breads. While the selection was good some of them were a bit too dry […]

Delicious dishes for lunch – booking recommended: Restaurant Werk 8 (3. April 2018)

The Werk8 offers only a small lunch menu so I was rather surprised to actually find a couple of decent offerings for someone who is forced to not enjoy meat. The “potato soup” (CHF 11.00) was good but a much larger portion than originally stated. The “salad bowl (mixed leaf salad with feat, cucumber, tomatoes […]

Great lunch offering for a swift lunch: Restaurant Mum’s Kitchen Vietnamese Food (26. March 2018)

Sometimes it is good if you rely on someone else conducting research where to go for lunch as you probably would never have walked into the restaurant by passing by. The Mum’s Kitchen Vietnamese Food is one of these candidates. The lunch offering was simple yet delicious. I went for the “red curry with duck” […]

Great salad, average burger for lunch: Restaurant L’Esquina (21. March 2018)

Great salad, average burger for lunch: Restaurant L’Esquina (21. March 2018)

After entering, I was a bit skeptical to what degree this was going to be good. But after the “menu salad” (CHF 5.50) was served, I was positively surprised. Given it was not only leaf salad but had cucumbers and tomatoes in it making it quite a tasty start for a very fair price. The […]

Lovely Cordon Bleu but the service is not entirely up to the task: Restaurant Gifthüttli (4. September 2017)

Lovely Cordon Bleu but the service is not entirely up to the task: Restaurant Gifthüttli (4. September 2017)

Frankly, the name of the restaurant is a bit disturbing at first, given it is called “poison hut”. However, in Swiss German it doesn’t sound as scary as it sounds in English. It is famous for its Cordon Bleus, so it was absolutely logical that I went for their flagship Cordon Bleu called “Cordon Bleu […]

26. December 2015: Restaurant Krafft

To offer a surprise menu (CHF 65.00) is actually quite a good idea. At least it is something I haven’t seen so often yet. The first course was “seabass on leek with mushrooms and star anise”. The mushrooms and leek bed served as a good basis for the sea bass which was good but a […]
