Re: Good restaurants just over the Swiss border in German/France/Italy?

The best cooking is always at home. Nothing can beat that. It’s inexpensive, good service, close enough to location, no queueing, served 24/7 and very convenient to dine

I know this is hardly any contribution to the thread, but my wife would have loved the above statement!

Nah, the best cooking is for the meal that fits the occasion.

It can be at home but can equally be a Michelin-starred place, fish and chips on a windy beach or a bratwurst cooked on a smoky fire up in the mountains.

Pan Taverne
Salmannsweilergass, Konstanz

In the old town in Konstanz.

Greek restaurant run by a Greek. Inexpensive, filling, tasty food.

Been quite a few times for lunch. Always busy.
The grilled octopus and the lamb hotpot are good.
Now that sounds like a good place and recommendation, I will try that next time im in Konstanz!

I love cooking but it's no replacement for the feel of an occasional trip to an enjoyable restaurant. I am sure your wife (like almost all women I can think of) didn't mind being wined and dined now and then...

Re: Good restaurants just over the Swiss border in German/France/Italy?

Here's a quicky for the French side (Geneva), 5 mins by car or bus from the border:

Le Pirate at Ferney-Voltaire. Top notch fish restaurant. Went there with Heston Blumenthal (on company expenses) and he thought it was good .

"all you can eat" restaurants are not really geared up to be good, they are usually quite cheap but this is reflected 100% in the quality of food on offer.

The buffet is only an option. They have an excellent ala-karte menu as well with Chinese / Japanese and Thai dishes. But go ahead, give it a miss. It's becoming popular as more people discover it, so best to keep it off the radar.

Re: Good restaurants just over the Swiss border in German/France/Italy?

  • La Botte
  • Italian / Pizzeria
  • Tirano (Italy)
  • Cheap
https://www.tripadvisor.ch/Restauran..._Lombardy.html


https://www.ristorantepizzerialabotte.it/

Good pizzas, good desserts too. Easily accessible from the train station. My recommendation: cross the Swiss Alps and their amazing landscapes with the train, then visit Tirano and go to La Botte. An unforgettable experience!

Re: Good restaurants just over the Swiss border in German/France/Italy?

Here are a few in Germany (nearby to Basel)...

>>>>>>>>

Name: Tadim
Type: Turkish Grill
Location: Weil Am Rhein (10-15 minutes from Basel)
Price: Cheap
Notes: This was recommended to us by a Turkish friend living in Central Switzerland. He said it was the best Turkish food within 100km and said he often makes the 1+ hour drive with his family to eat there. After eating there last week, we know why. Amazingly delicious !

>>>>>>>>

Name: Restaurant at Eckert Hotel
Type: Euro-Japanese-Multinational Fusion
Location: Lorrach (10 minutes from Basel)
Price: Expensive
Notes: I have eaten there for dinner and for lunch several times. The food is near Michelin star quality. Super. Highly Recommend !

Re: Good restaurants just over the Swiss border in German/France/Italy?

Rebgut Haltnau (Uferpromenade 107, Meersburg): good local wine and delicate food ("European", regional fish and meat) directly by the lake

Schützenhaus (Göfiser Strasse 2, Feldkirch): quality Austrian food above standard "wirtshaus" level, nice view above Feldkirch directly by the castle

Not now, Germany is going into lockdown as from Wednesday on. Restaurants can only do take away.
