I've only been here once so far during winter (mid March) and did not disappoint in terms of the service, the relaxing atmosphere and the incomparable views. You take the cable car (15 CHF) up to the ski fields where the restaurant is located. It takes about 60 minutes for the restaurant to turn 360 degrees so you can enjoy... More

Very busy, you absolutely need a booking! But either come by and book in person or by phone. We booked online, got confirmation but they didn't have our names on the list. So we were squeezed on at the end of a table, but good company next to us. We just had to get up and go and look at... More

It's a great idea to have a revolving restaurant in such a location. There are glorious views as you slowly rotate while seated at your table. The food is adequate, but there are some drawbacks. It does tend to be quite noisy (the drinks preparation and table clearing areas are quite close to the tables) and there are currents of... 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.

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 restaurant takes circa one...

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.
