“great food with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

the catered restaurant is mostly booked so if you consider having a luxurious lunch then pre-reserve your place. The self catered restaurant has quite some empty spaces and try to get a place next to to glass windows. From here you can sit and enjoy the 360deg spectacle as the restaurant slowly revolves around. The food was quite palatable as well, obviously depending on what you are happy with. But things are a bit pricey since establishment costs of one of its kind in quite high.

“Spectacular view. Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This rotating restaurant allows for a spectacular view. We were there in July. The sun was still melting the snow and we were given the unique opportunity to watch clouds being born. By 11am, the view was obscured by these maturing clouds. In summer, it is very important to get there early so that you beat the clouds and enjoy the rugged alps in this spectacular setting. There is also a weather station outside that you can walk to. And, we were entertained by helicopters delivering heavy supplies to the deck before the clouds obscured the delivery route.

The breakfast buffet was good but not as spectacular as the setting.

While the gondola tickets may seem expensive, it is worth doing when you are in the Berner Oberland.

Oh, and then check out the 007 museum in the building. It's free and entertaining if you are a Bond, James Bond fan.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Excellent service and good food for fair price. We missed the view as it was thickly covered by clouds. Our best experience at 3000m that day!
