Looking for trendy restaurants in Basel

Hi All!
Looking for a treny/posh restaurant in Basel with good ambience...everything I a looking at appears to be a hotel restaurant or old barn/chalet type place. Does that type of restaurant exist in Basel.. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.
Chad

Noohn and Acqua are as much about looking good as feeding your face

I've heard that Acqua is supposed to be fantastic.
Good luck!

I would recommend Stucki. The best for me so far.

Restaurant Stucki

I have to agree, Noohn has a quite nice ambience. Acqua I haven't been yet...

The Schifferhaus is more Chateau than Chalet???

Avoid Noohn on Thursday - quite a large staff Christmas party happening between 7and 10pm

menu looks delish though............

I have been to Acqua. Food was amazing! But to big portions. I had the four course menu and couldn't finish it (usually a big eater). Would go for three courses next time and really enjoy it, and the wine, instead.

Good winelist to. I think you'd be happy there.

That's also a good restaurant. Don't buy drinks there thou. Way too much liquor for them to be tasty.

And I recommend that you make reservations if you're going to Acqua.

Re: Looking for trendy restaurants in Basel

They really really really are so delish
Kumqaits, Limes, and gin Its a sour but sweet fresh cocktail and it is likely if you go with girlfriends that guys will buy your drinks !
Enjoy
