The Resturant is very beautiful. The food is delicious but for someone who has been to top restaurants around the world it is ok. Set menus are good option for first time visitors. I tried menu 2 and it was satisfactory. Enjoy if you are in Hanover and looking for fine dining option.

Every time we are in Hannover we do not miss a dinner at Basil restaurant. In a cosy place (former horse stable of the police) a dedicated team receives you warming friendly. The menu is not too big but offers you scrumptious dishes with divine tastes and creative presentation. A big praise for the Sommelier. He always finds the perfect... More

Surprisingly good around a boring typical German cuisine. Rich wine list with a surprise of red Margalit wine from Israel, it is not obvious and common in every fine restaurant Good and professional service Recommend!!!

I was taken here by a friend for a major birthday celebration in the family. The food (all four courses) was excellent. The service was a bit slow... this is a statement of fact, not a complaint, since we had lots of time and spent 3 hours there. The staff are friendly. All in all, it was a nice experience.... More

The wine list is very complete and the employees are very friendly. Per person with wine and desert you must prepare at least 60€. But they are... More
