I ate here with a large group on business trip. We wanted typical Swiss food and were not disappointed. We especially loved the fondue and raclette. Service was good. The price was high but was typical for Basel.

I really like to come here, not too big and a familiar atmosphere. The food is good and personally love the cordon blue. Price wise I think it fits in the standard range of restaurants in Basel. Surely will come back!!

Typical Swiss Fondue? Here you go. However, take some money and stay in a smaller group. Otherwise it´ll be cosy and expensive. Service was overall very good, too. Wine - as always in Switzerland - high priced. Tasty salats! Try the "Nüssli" as starter.

It was crowded. Best to reserve beforehand. The swiss fondue with alcohol was good but can be stronger. The beef tartar was fantastic

We came here for the fondue mostly. We ended up splitting an order of that and the veal cordon bleu. Both items were very good. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to offer another item or two in addition to bread to dip into...More

We were advised by a member of the family that the Elsbethenstubli was the very best place to enjoy a fondue. And we cannot deny it, the fondues (we needed TWO caquelons!) were excellent and the wine (several bottles) was tasty and a good accompaniment...More
