“What an amazing atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

OF course, the meal was delecious! But the view and the ambiance, just breathtaking. Take the time to walk the terrasse and take some pictures. The gondola trip to the top, so romantic and fun.

“Best view in the house!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Wanted the clam chowder but they were out so settled for sandwich which was very good. The hot spiced wine was excellent. Waiter was great.

“Don't eat the risotto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

The fondue is excellent, the chowder was great but the risotto was nasty, tasteless, and had weird uncooked carrots in top. The view was amazing and the mulled wine was yummy.

“Good food & cocktails great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Came up on the gondola which you should factor into the cost if you are just coming to the restaurant and not doing some hiking as well.
The views from the restaurant are beautiful and there is a really peaceful atmosphere.
There is a good choice of cocktails if you fancy something other than beer or wine.
As it was lunchtime we skipped starters and for our mains we choose the wild mushroom wrap, fish tacos and the smoked trout fishcake all of which were very good. Service was friendly and helpful.

“Gorgeous place to have a Summer lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Gondola ride to the top was fun. $50 round-trip for two. Had a salad with Cod on the patio which was very good. Views are great. The inside restaurant looked a lot nicer than the web site photos. Service was just fine.

Kind of a one time thing though.
