I have not been to the Cheval blanc for quite some time. My recent visit convinced me that I must come more often. I know very many of the Michelin 2 or 3 star restaurants in France, Italy, Japan and Germany. This definitely is among...the very best. And that says it all. Every detail of the meal from the nibbles at the start to the petit four with the coffee is just perfect. The ambience is splendid and the service not only attentive I find it pleasantly informal, relaxed and warm. A splendid place, I can only warmly recommend. You will surely be more than satisfied.More

We booked a reservation online weeks before arriving in Basel. This restaurant is located in the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois. The dining room is nicely decorated. Also, an awesome view of the Rhine River. We were warmly greeted as soon as we walked in...and shown to our table. The restaurant offers a 5 course and 6 course chef's menu as well as ala carte. We opted for the 6 course. Absolutley fantastic! Each course was artfully presented. I don't think I can pick the right words to describe the dishes. They were all amazing! Service was pleasant, attentive and not overdone- made it a relaxed enjoyable dinner. Staff explained every dish clearly. Also took time to describe the selection of cheeses. The dinner will take at least 3 hours. Timing between courses was just right. We did not feel rushed or felt we had to wait too long for the next course. The chef came out and visited each table towards the end of dinner. A nice touch. There are only 10 tables inside the restaurant. It was fully booked on the Friday we were there. We will definitely dine here again next time we are in Basel.More

What can I say. We had an amazing lunch, choosing the 6 course menu, every single course was cooked to perfection. The flavors were so vibrant, the textures subtle and wonderful Service of course was outstanding and impeccable I have to admit, I ate 5...bread rolls, they were absolutely stunning, and had 2 slices of bread with the cheese....glad I ate all of the bread as the portions are rather on the small side and as I am not the smallest, I think I would still be a little hungry after the meal.... Even so, it was worth every cent and I can only recommend going thereMore
