There is a rotating restaurant at the top- the food is just OK, but the rotating aspect of it is worth your time as you enjoy the 360 degree views while you eat. Really nice. The views from the platforms outside are fantastic as well. Great sled area for kids in the winter. As the other reviews state the museum... More

Short trip in a cable car (expensive) or a steep hike required to enjoy some of the best views of Bariloche. The revolving restaurant at the top is probably worth missing but after paying to go up you want to stay as long as possibly can taking photos so a coffee and a bit to eat is inevitable. Other activities... More

We did this on what seemed to be a fair day down in Barilcohe however once up on the top it was blustery and we walked around for only 30 minutes , great views , very average coffee shop , lots of tourists so we waired in line for 20 minutes going up 40 to come down , 230 pesos... More

This is an easy trip from downtown Bariloche, you can go there and back in a couple hours and see everything there is to see. You go up in a gondola-type cable car to the top of the mountain, where here is a building with a restaurant, souvenir shops etc. There is also a museum with reproductions of Michelangelo statues...

We visited this wonderful ski hill during the off-season to take in the gorgeous views. You can take the cable car to the "lodge" (which has a nice restaurant at the top, shops and wifi), or you can hike up there... we chose the cable car. From there, you can take a brief hike even further up the mountain, where... More

The view is great besides the strong and cold winter wind, worth to go outside in the decks for appreciating the beautiful view, unfortunately the park area was closed due the lack of snow, but seems to be funny mainly for the kids. The cafe was disappointing, cold and old "churros" and the coffee and capuchino were not good also.

To reach Cerro Otto you have to travel in a somewhat dated cable car taking 4 in each cab. However no worries regarding safety. At the summit, there are marvellous views of Bariloche, Lago Nahuel Huapi as well as the lower summits of the Andes. The restaurant at the top is not somewhere at which to expect a gourmet experience... More
