Visited here before going to the ice bar,very pleased with the food although can't quite grasp the idea of weighing your plate as you pay for what you eat im sure for example wedges weigh more than salad!never got a friendly welcome and it wasn't busy,,asked for rose wine a medium but she just said this is!!!!thewine was cloudy and very dry,disgustingly bitter!! I paid £17forlunch,it really wasn't worth that and maybe a smile from the staff would of made the visit better I am myself a catering manager And wouldn't think twice of retraining these staff Wouldn't visit again purely for that reason.
Ate lunch there (lunch has a cheaper price for weight than dinner) and found tons of things that I wanted to try. Everything was vegetarian with vegan, glutenfree,lactosfree, and other alternatives. You take what you want and pay by weight, and can gets various drinks as well. The coffee was very good, the place very fresh for lunch, and the food all delicious. They also had plenty of variation in the food from salads to desserts and everything in between.
Husband scorns vegetarian food, however the server was able to recommend a sandwich that tasted the most like meat and he loved it! He was very impressed! I went for the buffet style spread trying to sample a little of everything because they charge by the weight of your plate. Out of everything I tried, all but one item was very tasty and satisfying. But I think economically the sandwich was the best route to take.
Stopped into Titbits while waiting for some friends. Had a long wait and it was cold so went in for a drink and some hot soup. This establishment has a wide range of food items available around a table. You serve your items on to a plate and it is then weighed and costed. You can also order from the menus located behind the bar. Quite relaxing and comfortable and a good place to hangout. Soup was good and they made a nice aperol spritz. You have to find your own seating. They also have outdoor seating as well for those who may want to venture into the cold weather at this time. Can be quite crowded depending on time of the day.
Vegetarian at its best, recommended also for omnivores
This vegetarian restaurant is in a good location in the center of Basel. There are many different styles of settings and in the summer the outdoor tables are very popular. Excellent food and delicious drinks and juices. I do love to eat meat, but every time when I am eating in there I am tempted to convert to a vegetarian. If you plan to have lunch there, try to be early before it gets overrun at noon.
conveniently located above the tracks and probably the healthiest option in the whole train station. table setup is not cramped but leaves enough space and creates a roomy athmosphere. staff is very friendly and wished "a guete" even passing by and tidying up other tables. definitely worth a visit!
Good, but very expensive food for vegetarians and vegans
The restaurant is furnished very cosy, with a comfortable atmosphere. Unfortunately they don't offer any meat at all. Only vegetarian and vegan food are served, but those do taste exquisite. The prices in opposition to other restaurants are one of the highest of the whole city (price is defined by food's weight)!
I really like the atmosphere of this place. It is elegant and alive. I would say it is mostly a place to go with friends as it is always loud and crowded. The reason why it is so popular is that it offers good food at a reasonable price. It is a self service restaurant with a buffet which means one can choose from a variety of dishes and in the end you weigh the dish and pay accordingly. That is also a safe choice as not all dishes are good so one can always find something they like. One more reason for the good ratings. The red wine is very good , especially the Ribera del Duero I have been there many times and would definitely recommend it!
Visited with family on a saturday early afternoon and the place was busy. The buffet offers a wide variety of dishes, starters and main, cold and hot AND mostly vegan. I thorougly enjoyed mine but I find it was a bit expensive for the amount of food I got - priced by weight. Also, I just asked for water and expected Tap water but was given a £3 bottle instead (my bad though, I should have refused it). Overall, good quality and tasty food. Will definitely come back as a treat because it was very nice and I didn't try the desserts or juices!
