We enjoyed sitting in the restaurant and looking at the view go by. The food and service were good too!

Situated in Leysin, Switzerland, the Kuklos is a revolving restaurant that completes one turn every hour and a half. To get there you take a cable car from Leysin to La Berneuse. The view is stunning and you can see from the Eiger to the Mont Blanc while eating a fondue or whatever else you like from the menu. They... More

A great place to stop for lunch on a clear sunny day after a hard morning's ski. Food and service are just average but the views are to die for. Expect to pay for it though !

As South African tourists the exchange rate hits hard and the prices at the restaurant are not cheap. Our family of 4 were staying in Leysin and took the cable car to the restaurant. I had read that you were welcome to sit, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the view, but this is not true. I ordered coffee... More

What a wonderful place to chill and watch the most incredible view, quite breathtaking. A full revolution takes about one hour. Service good but they allow you time to enjoy the magnificent scenery. Not a wide choice on the menu but we thoroughly enjoyed the plats du jour. Recommend booking for a seat by the window. Need a head for... More

We received a gift certificate for this restaurant and it took us over two years to use it because it is a bit far from where we live. I e-mailed for a reservation and asked for 1pm, and they wrote back saying our reservation was for noon. Strange - considering the kitchen is open until 4pm. The restaurant was also... More

Amazing place on top of the mountains not far from touching the blue sky. Nice place and even more beatiful ski spot. I'd say the most interesting part of visiting this restaurant at Leysin is the enviroment itself while the quality of the food is pretty poor. We're not new to outstanding places over the Swiss Alps but this one... More

When we went in, i honestly thought there must be a certain amount of hype surrounding a revolving restaurant... Well, I was highly surprised! It truly is novel to sit and drink Swiss Coffee (which was very good coffee, and reasonably priced i may add...) on top of the world! As the room revolves, you get to see different views... More

Took my parents here for their 40th wedding anniversary - views are stunning on a clear day but its not a cheap excursion coming by telecabine! Staff welcomed our 2 year old and there were toys to keep him occupied. Restaurant feels a bit like a canteen and food was fine but nothing spectacular. We had a lovely time overall.
