We came middle of the morning on a sunday for brunch. Excellent choice of sweet and salted dishes, fruits and all kind of beverage. Ambiance is cosy and friendly.

My first visit here was for a romantic dinner many years ago and it was great. Later I have found a job just opposite, so I am going there regularly to have lunch or an after-work drink with friends or colleagues. They have a constant menu (try a flammkuchen), but also a seasonal menu that I normally go for. I... More

You can choose from a huge variety of wonderful brunches like vegan, romeo (with italian stuff) or jamaica... Stuff is friendly and helpful.

Don't have time to run across the street to the 'Bahnhöfli' for a delicious meal? The sandwich shop in the Basel Bad train station is an acceptable alternative. The sandwiches were okay, not amazing and not poor, and the ingredients seemed fresh. I think it was a little expensive for what you got (even knowing we were in Switzerland) so... More

It's a rather unexpected experience to enjoy the first class cuisine at the train station. But les garcçons are absolutely worth the visit. The food is simple, but delicious. Creative compositions. Ingredients mostly local, seasonal, quite a good portion organic. We ate the best parsnip soup ever! Main dishes were as excellent.

Les garçons should Move to the city center and give to this Basel a good taste and extravaganza! In a great sensual and elegant scenario, perfect lights for a dinner in a groovy restaurant at the train station. I had a really nice dinner. Not nice actually, it was lovely. The food and beverages are well presented and the service... More

Beautiful simple food. I had brunch and everything was very pleasant, just what I needed for a peaceful Sunday. Great vibe service, great atmosphere and great food. When I got there it was completely full, but I got a table within minutes. Is not just for travelers, don't get fooled because is in a train station, it is a great... More
