I recommend Spillman - has a lovely view of the Rhein.

Lunch menu was good value the last time we were there. Quite popular so reservation recommended.

Re: calling all Baselites

Elisabethen Stubli and Walliserkanne are the best for traditional Swissie food.

I really like restaurant Schnabel:

I haven't been for a while but they used to do lovely soup starters and their Rosti was yum yum yummy!

Re: calling all Baselites

Next door to Linde is the Fischerstübe, from whence comes Üli bier. (Brewed on the premises). I think they're under the same ownership? Anyway, the food is about the same quality, but I find Fischerstübe has the best atmosphere.

Chateau Lapin or Häseburg, at Andreasplatz. Communal seating and Rösti and more Rösti!

Re: calling all Baselites

Another vote for the Walliserkanne. That's where we take all of our out-of-town business guests for traditional Swiss food.

For something slightly more up-market, I also like Safran Zunft. It's quieter and a little more intimate.

Given the choice, I'd take a group of 4 or fewer to Safran Zunft, 5+ to Walliserkanne.

They're about a two-minute walk from one another, so you could check out both and make your choice.

Went there last night, great grub and great beer.
