Getting a seat here can sometimes be a bit of a challenge, but people tend to get to know one another better in such a relaxed, cozy atmosphere. Considered one of Basel's trendier addresses for several decades, the Rio proves that not all things are subject to ceaseless change. Eating here rarely crosses anybody's mind. Drinking a glass of whiskey however does. Mirrors adorn the ceiling, not all that popular with balding men, but a nice touch! Call ahead for hours.
