Great lunch bargain with super friendly service: Restaurant Poseidon (21. November 2018)

I have passed the Restaurant Poseidon a couple of times and so far it always looked a bit like a take away but there is actually a proper restaurant at the back of the entrance which is quite spacious. The lunch bargain is actually amazing. For only CHF 23.50 you get a “leek soup” as […]

Hidden yet very visible but worth visiting: South Africa Grill @ Markthalle (2. October 2018)

Hidden yet very visible but worth visiting: South Africa Grill @ Markthalle (2. October 2018)

I spent a couple of weeks in Basel for work, yet I somehow never heard about the Markthalle – and I have driven by quite a couple of times. However, the concept is amazing – you find a bunch of food stands in the Markthalle ranging from Asian to European to South American to African […]

You get à discretion for an amazing price: Restaurant Knock on Wood Vietnamese Fusion Cuisine (19. September 2018)

The Restaurant Knock on Wood Vietnamese Fusion Cuisine offers something quite unique you do not find often in Switzerland – cuisine à discretion. The “meat menu” (CHF 17.00) … … you can take seafood as well as chicken or beef as a main course and combine it with a selection of vegetables, rice or glass […]

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

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 […]

When half of the food isn’t on the menu anymore: Restaurant Osteria Little Italy (5. December 2018)

When half of the food isn’t on the menu anymore: Restaurant Osteria Little Italy (5. December 2018)

The Osteria Little Italy is among the best ranked restaurants in Basel on TripAdvisor. Now frankly, I kind of understand it after enjoying the whole evening, however, when I initially got there, I didn’t quite share that impression. Once I had decided what to eat which was basically veal and burrata, I was informed that […]

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)

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 […]
