This restaurant has great views! Both in the summer and in the winter. The food is a little overpriced as expected for a tourist spot. The hike up is great if you're looking for exercise. Otherwise, the gondola ride is nice and easy.

A lovely meal slightly overpriced but I guess your paying for the stunning mountain scenery. If you haven't booked you may be disappointed at busy times or at best you'll get a table without a view. Not sure I'd like to sit in the part of the restaurant that is cantilevered out over the mountain but others seemed to love... More

The view alone is worth the 5 stars. A short but breathtaking cable car ride to the top is truly exhilarating, particularly in Winter when the trees are full off glistening white snow. The food is above average in the restaurant with a good range of offerings including typical Austrian fayre. This should definitely be on your list of places... More

Perched at the top of Karren Mountain and accessible by cable car, sits this well designed restaurant. It commands a truly breathtaking view of the valley, Lake constanz, and the Swiss and German borders. You can walk up the mountain throgh the mountain road which is a amazing experience. Fit people go up in 40 minutes while I took 1... More

Walked a very scenic route (took about 1 1/2 hours and quite steep in places but well worth it) to the restaurant. Food and service were good and the view spectacular. Nice to be able to take the cable car back down, which cost about euro 5 for one way.

This restaurant has a nice view! Especially when the sun goes down.... WOW amazing! The Menu is ok and also the price considering that you are on the top on the mountain.

Fantastic view of Dornbirn, Bregenz and the Lake was somewhat spoiled by slow service and undercooked food. Visited here recently and there was simply not enough staff to cope with the large summer evening crowd. It was made worse by having to send under cooked chicken back and then wait 20 mins for a replacement. A shame as the view... More

As the name implies The View is amazing. You're sitting on top of the mountain with a view of the bodensee and three countries, Austria Switzerland Germany. The food is good not great but the view is worth having dinner there at least once. The cable car ride to the top is a fun short ride and from that location... More
