Stücki is the beautiful restaurant of Tanja Grandits in Basel, Switzerland. On our weekend in Basel, we decided to go eat there because it has two stars in the Michelin guide.
Stücki hotel and restaurant is located on the hill north west of Basel, the area is quiet, residential and bourgeois.
We arrived by the tram 15 that stopped just in front of the restaurant, we climbed a few stairs in order to enter in the restaurant which at first glance seemed very spacious, and indeed it is with four separate areas plus a nice terrace for summer lunch and dining.
Tanja Grandits is supposed to be one of the most creative chefs working in Switzerland and that was one of our criteria for selecting her restaurant. For our dinner, we chose the menu Aroma served in eight courses. The first four dishes were very good, tasty and originals, the chef seems to excel in sweet and sour savors, but unfortunately the last four dishes were disappointing. The vegetables and the veal were too salty, and for the finale, the dessert was not what we would expect of a two-star restaurant.
The wine list was very impressive as it should be for a restaurant like Stücki. Our French-speaking host and sommelier did a very good job in selecting three different and original wines for us.
The service was impeccable.
Overall, our dinner at Stücki was like watching an exciting film with a bad ending. Very surprising for a seasoned chef like Tanja Grandits to deliver such an inconsistent performance.
