Fabulous menu with wine pairing. Great Service, probably the best meal I have had in Basel. I highly recommend this restaurant!

This place was recommended to us by one of the staff from the Röter Bären and it was delicious. Unexpected flavours, great friendly service which was totally correct but defiantly not uptight and the wines were very nice. We had the four course menu without...dessert and that was plenty and a real joy! Thank you LA restaurant for a great evening!More

Fantastic concept with small plates allowing you to taste and enjoy different dishes. Everything tasted delicious especially the lamb belly and the decadent chocolate dessert. Highly recommend!

I came here with some very foodie friends. The waiter we had was wonderful, he was very helpful and knowledgable of the menu. We started off with the Brüggli Char - which was exceptional. The fish was perfectly cooked and the sauce complimented it well....We then had the salmon ravioli which were very unbalanced and didn’t taste great. They were not ravioli but dumplings using what we think was rice paper wrappers. They were rubbery and had a very earthy flavour which wasn’t pleasant. The waiter very happily exchanged the dishes for us. My friend had the beef tacos which she said were very good (as an American who knows Mexican food I think that’s a huge compliment). The reason I only gave this place an average rating is that the food was just okay. There are in my opinion other restaurants in town that do better food for a similar price.More

One of the best food experiences I’ve had in Basel. Clearly Exceeded my expectations and highly recommend to go with the wine suggestions of the owner. He knows how to pair the outstanding food with excellent wines. A wonderful experience for foodies and wine lovers.

I came here with my partner who had been before. Some of the best food I have ever tasted, tapas style menu, we had 5 dishes between us they were amply sized and tasted amazing. I have been to many a restaurant in Basel but...this is definitely my new favourite. Excellent service from the host who suggested what dishes we would have together. Desert was incredible too very unusual but totally worked. A must for foodies who live here or visit ❤️.More

We went there after Baselworld, their service was attentive and friendly. The manger noticed us when we needed to return the table and led us to a nice table. The price was reasonable compared to other restaurants in Basel. The food was delicious, i was...especially blown away with the foie gras creme brûlée and my friend really liked the black cod. Their bread was also crispy and soft with a seasoned butter. Would definitely recommend and come back!More

Small cozy place with super nice staff and probably best food in Basel. Highly recommended for special occasions :-) Not stiff or boring, just nice casual atmosphere.

I’ve been to Michelin restaurants, yes. This is MOST definitely worth the visit. Attentive staff, adventurous ingredients mixed with interesting cooking and assembling methods. We did the ‘surprise 4 course menu’ all with ingredients that were familiar but used in very different contexts. I went...home full, satisfied and felt that I went for an experience, not a meal! :DMore

I had the 5 course tasting menu. All the dishes were nicely prepared. The stand out for me was the green beans with miso foam. The beans was slightly crunchy and the miso flavor enhanced the dish. The foie gras creme brulee was very salty...and intense in flavor so the sorbet provided a nice balance.More
