Seemed a little expensive, so depending on your appetite, 3 people could order two people's portions for fondue (200 grams each of cheese, and 200g each of pretzel) and then share something else. And I really liked the cürrywurst plate. Service was nice/polite.

I visit this place a couple of times, the Swiss food is good and is a great place for a fondue. Last time that i visited the place as it was summer I tried the steak tartare and it was great too.

Lovely restaurant on the river. The menu was a little limited, but I was very happy with my perfectly prepared, and light-touch fish. The service was average, but no complaints really,

Basel is quite expensive so this place was reasonably priced. Pint of beer 6.80CHF which is cheap for Basel. Food was good size serve and very tasty. Waitress had good English which was a bonus. Well worth a visit.
