They are not only known for their delicious “Basler Salm”. They prepare a wide choice of seafood taken straight from the market, always fresh. Good information for non smokers only: the «Café Spitz» is entirely smoke-free.

If you are vegetarian, don’t worry: we have a solution called Country Life, an excelent choice for those who prefer this kind of feeding.

This health-conscious restaurant features vegetarian dishes made with organic ingredients. The flavorful cuisine, tinged with Italian, Asian and Swiss flairs, includes such favorites as pesto, risotto, ratatouille and spaghetti. A downstairs market specializes in organic produce, dry goods, fresh foods, and a salad bar. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?!

The restaurant Gifthüttli provides you a variety of dining services and unforgettable culinary delights. You have a choice: the traditional Basel “pickling” the Boulevard terrace on the ground floor or the elegant “Stuube” than eatery on the first floor, which you can also reserve exclusively for corporate or private events. Regardless of where you happen to be, unique atmosphere with its cozy wood extensions and decorations, you will discover the historic and felt everywhere.

You cannot leave Basel without experience Tanja Grandits special dishes, at Bruderholzallee 42: inspired in a unique philosophy of aroma kitschen, you will be arrested by its peculiar way of providing the best original delicacies.

So, what is “Aroma Kitchen“ ? It succeeds not only when tastes harmonize with each other perfectly, but also when contrasting flavours and textures, such as crispy and creamy, or juicy and spicy, meet in the mouth. Sweet potato puree served with saffron butter, loup de mer is graced with a seasoning of ajowan and a smooth cream of corn is served with a refreshing salsa of grapefruit.

We finnish our tour inside Basel streets suggesting you Au Violin, in Im Lohnhof 4. It is a very pleasant gourmet brasserie situated in a renovated old building near the Leonhardskirche, offering seasonal specialities prepared with care. Although, we advise you: it is closed Sunday & Monday.
