Day before we leave Basel with my girlfriend and her eye caught Restaurant Lowenzorn. We had problem the previous days to find a place to eat that does not serve Italian or Chinese or Japanese food. Do not misunderstand we love all three but in Basel we wanted something more local. The food we had was very tasty and came... More

The restaurant seems lovely and the menu very interesting, but we only tried the Sunday brunch buffet. Every Sunday, they offer an all-you-can eat brunch buffet for CHF 29.5 pp. There is a decent variety of meats and cheese, sausages, pastries, bread, cereal etc. They make you fresh eggs and whatever coffee or tea you wish. The staff was pleasant... More

We were told that it had improved but that wasnt the case. Had to wait so long for the food and then when it came it was luke warm and the potatoes were hard. Service poor. Would certainly not go there again.

I was here for a group banquet in a beautiful room (Intarsiensaal) with remarkable wood inlays and stained glass windows. I had the pumpkin soup followed by the calf liver and rösti, which were all very good. The staff were friendly and generous. Highly recommended! A memorable experience, and highly recommended.

We were disappointed by the food, especially when the bill came! One of us had a veal schnitzel that, despite being the size of the dinner plate, was surprisingly full of gristle. The other meal was a veal bratwurst that was well cooked, but too mild. The portions were large. It's pretty expensive to eat there.

Long wait for food, schnitzel tough and oily, fries like cardboard, lack of drinks. We were a group of 13, very disappointing. We skipped dessert and coffee, no point throwing in good money after bad! Left thirsty!

Excellent atmosphere. Outdoor patio. Lots of locals. The cheese fondue was fantastic and a full meal on its own

I visited on a quiet Sunday night and sat in the 'garden' (actually a courtyard). Friendly staff, a nice beer or two and a sausage with rosti made the perfect start to my business trip to Basel. I was staying in Hotel Basel and this place is in a street behind the hotel. Nothing fancy but better than beer-hall type... More

We were in one of the banquet rooms upstairs and this alone was great and worth seeing. The food was well prepared and arranged and of good quality.
