Panorama at its best

We had lunch at this venue and, to be honest, we were fearing it to be just another tourists trap. We were definitely wrong! Surely enough you won't get a typical alpine menu, but the food quality is good and the service is proper. Note that you have to take your time when eating here: the... read more

This revolving restaurant set high up on the mountain is stunning! I recommend to anyone visiting the pretty village of Leysin in the Vallais to take the cable car (which is in itself a treat!) to Kuklos restaurant. I often take visitors to this restaurant and they are always delighted! The menu has local specialties, kids meals as well as... More

Everything about this restaurant is first rate - its location atop a small mountain which enjoys open views to die for. You can see as far as the Eiger in the Berner Oberland, the Mont Blanc in France, the Matterhorn, Lake Geneva and the Freiburg mountains, with the massif of the Diablerets and Dents du Midi much closer, and the...

The whole range of Swiss and French Alps is around you in that rotating restaurant! The excellent view is accompanied with an excellent menu of swiss meals . A friendly staff and ppleasant jorney with a cable car takes you in 10 minutes to the pleasant resort of Leysin. A wonderful weekend! Thanks!

On a special dinner at night, we took the cable car to went up the mountain. We ate a marvelous classic cheese fondue. The staff of the restaurant was very friendly and, even by night, the view is gorgeous (we had good weather...). It is a very nice experience I want to do again by daytime.

This is the place you go for the views, plus a reasonable meal. The amazing feature of revolving restaurant reminded me of the Liverpool one in the 80's. Staff helpful in pointing out peaks.

the restaurant was quite dirty, crumbs on tables, etc. the menu folder was in horrid condition, it looked very greasy and worn, nothing you want to touch. staff was rude and not interested in customers. food is overpriced and nothing special.

We had a nice meal and enjoyed the changing view. Staff was friendly but certainly working very hard during a busy time. As a past waiter, I can empathize with a heavy table burden and it must be more challenging as the location of the tables relative to the kitchen changes as they rotate. The food was not up to...

Excellent restaurant with an amazing view, the restaurant is on a turning platform so don't leave your things by the window. The food and service is great and it is a nice spot to stop and eat while boarding or skiing. Swiss classics meals are served but the fondue is exquisite ! I recommend you to go ! If you... More

Went in the summer. The view was beautiful. Intense cable car ride to reach it. Pleanty of pay and display parking at the cable car station. Food was good. Staff is OK but slow and less caring.
