Basel : eating and drinking
Home > Tourist Guide > Table of contents > Basel > Restaurants

Drawing influences from the neighbouring cuisines of France and Germany into its native Swiss culinary tradition, Basel manages deftly to sit on the fence as far as eating and drinking go. Beer and sausages is the snack of choice, but it’s equally possible to find venues to savour classic French cuisine and, if the city could be said to have a local speciality, it’s salmon (originally plucked from the Rhine but these days more likely to be imported) marinaded in the fruity local white wine and topped with fried onions.
