I am making a spontaneous day trip to Basel tomorrow, and there is the problem of choosing a nice restaurant for lunch. I don't want a famous place where you need reservations a month in advance to get a 200 Euro meal, I want something quiet, with atmosphere, and not too crowded. Obviously, we could just walk into the first probable place when we are there and hungry, but this strategy has proved quite unreliable in the past, at least for me (maybe other people have a better "nose" for restaurants?)
So, what are my best information sources? Something generic like typing "restaurants Basel" in Google maps, and sifting through the reviews (which are somewhat patchy for Europe)? Making a Google search and hoping that the scraping sites in the high results have copied something useful from somewhere?
If somebody knows of more specific sources with useful information, I'd like to hear about them. Preferably something which has enough info about Switzerland, not an American/global site which only has two-three touristy items per Swiss city.
