Cheap Restaurants

La Manufacture Elisabethenstrasse
La Manufacture's second Basel restaurant occupies a top spot in the city centre, where it specialises in breakfast. The juicy-looking bagels with a healthy twist, including avocado and beetroot humus, get the saliva glands going.

Address: Elisabethenstrasse 18 | Telephone: +41615545293 |

Innovative homemade cuisine characterises kooky dishes such as ‘Thai style mussels' available at enticing prices (from CHF 18 for a menu of the day) but we're particularly taken with the ‘Beer Tapas', including beer pretzel. The restaurant has its own brewery, so the option isn't completely random. 

Address: Rheingasse 45 | Telephone: +41 61 692 9200 |

Founded by three friends in trendy Klein Basel across the river, Trio is suitably cosy and welcoming. It's ideal for a colourful light lunch, with dishes of the day starting at CHF 14.50. Menus change every three months, and there is always something tasty to sample. The classic Wiener Schnitzel is particularly juicy. 

Address: Klingentalstrasse 1 | Telephone: +41 61 556 9599 |

Ufer 7
The latest masterpiece from Basel's renowned Teufelhof patron, Raphael Wyniger, Ufer 7 on the banks of the Rhine dazzles with its creative, Swiss-inspired menu. The fresh fish platter is a winner, best followed with the Felchlin chocolate dessert.

Address: Untere Rheingasse 11 | Telephone: +41 61 551 0077 |

Kale bowls, homemade fries and burgers with a seasonal pop are the order of the day at this new eatery in pretty Aeschenvorstadt. It's the ‘real food' bandwagon, yes, but utterly delicious all the same.    

Address: Aeschenvorstadt 55 | Telephone: 061 271 1848 |

Dangling cow bells, a cable car centrepiece and a self-service system capture mountain hut are all rather kitsch, but the Alpine-inspired, daily changing menus are better than the usual ‘ski hut' fodder. Concocted by herbalist Elsa, who grew up in the mountains, the primarily organic dishes may include chicken in red wine or schnitzel with a twist.    

Address: Steinenvorstadt 1a | Telephone: 41 61 286 4040 |

Krafft Basel
Iconic Krafft Basel's head chef Hubert Mayer takes ‘local' to a different level: when he's not whipping up dribble-inducing dishes such as vegetable muesli or pike-perch on creamy sauerkraut, he is in the forest foraging for ingredients. The “Läckerli” mousseline, made with Basel spiced biscuits, is a dessert to die for.

Address: Rheingasse 12 | Telephone: +41 61 690 9130 |

Good Quality Restaurants

This wood-clad affair with Art Nouveau-inspired pizazz makes for a lush evening escape. Cosy up over the candlelight with a Cordon Bleu of regional pork, ham and apple chutney. The Basel-focused wine selection is also excellent. 

Address: Schneidergasse 11 | Telephone: +41 61 261 1656 |
