Wedding banquet in Basel

Hi! We want to celebrate next August our wedding with some friends that come to Basel just for this. The point is that we don't know any restaurant that fulfills most of these conditions:
  • With separate room.
  • Elegant and cosy but not brutally snob.
  • Traditional swiss food or mediterranean.
  • If possible in Basel downtown, but we can move a bit around.

Do you know or have any reference about some restaurants that may fit in these list?

Up to now we have checked:
- L÷wenzorn, but the inside is closed in summer.
- Gasthof zum Goldenen Sterne, is the one that fits best, but I'm not really fond of the menu.
- Restaurant zum Isaak, can't assure a private space. Depends on the occupation of the day.

Any idea will help. Thanks!

Re: Weeding banquet in Basel

Can you change your title to say wedding, not weeding?

Re: Wedding banquet in Basel

what about French food? I can certainly recommend this place: http://www.auberge-saintlaurent.fr/ Not Basel downtown, but only 15-20 min drive and the food is really excellent. 1 Michelin star.
They have several rooms, so I would hope you can book one, depending on the size of your party.

Re: Wedding banquet in Basel

Finally we have found an amazing place, with a very elegant small room and reasonable prices: The Hilton hotel. Surprising, isn't? We just want to post it here, just in case it helps other people. We don't know about the food yet, so maybe we can give some feedback later.

Thanks to you all!

Catching up at the end of this... Schlussel has a private room, as does Steinbok (near the station) and gifthutli, amongst many others. I have to arrange dinners as part of my work.

Re: Wedding banquet in Basel

Hello

do you probably need a live band for the wedding?

check out our band, circle of time.
We're playing cover-songs and have collected tons of experience performing at private parties.

PM me or email me, if you're interested (dmitri.karpovich@gmail.com)

Anyway, I wish you a nice wedding!
Dima, drummer
