Go for the view; not for the food

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... read more

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.

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.

This is a relaxing restaurant with a fabulous revolving 360* mountain top location, accessible by foot or ski lift. We had adequate meat and cheese platters, good desserts and a nice wine, all of which came at rather a high price for what it was: biggest shame is that the building shows distinct signs of neglect and that some of...

Nice to see the panorama in the touring restaurant. The food was ok, usual swiss prices, but there is a bouvette option as well if you want something cheaper but still enjoy the great location. Kids enjoyed the little play area with some toys in there.

at Kukos restaurant panoramique: staff is impolite including their chef who shouts to clients and they don't want to serve people. WORST experience ever .. we were three and we left the place after more than one hour waiting with late careless service... outside this restaurant is magnificent

Close your eyes and jump onto the cable car. Worth the ride. Go on a clear day to the top of the world. WOW!! And the food/service is quite good for a tourist trap. Trap me again. I would go over and over.

We took the cable car, great views and the kids loved it although a little scary for them. We had a nice walk around the peak but didnt venture too far as we were not kitted out for a walk. Also seemed very popular with mountain bikers and something I would love to try. We went to the restaurant for... More

The food was tasty and attractively plated. The menu is reasonably varied; prix fixe menu was excellent. Decent local red wine is available. Prices reasonable for Switzerland. Attentive service. We hiked up; the cable car is an option for those who want a quicker and easier trip up and/or down.
