Peaks is the "sit down" restaurant at the Peak and the views down the mountain into the valley are breath taking and there is not a bad table. There is also an inexpensive "cafeteria" and picnic tables that is less formal but not as comfy and the views not as good. It is up to your budget. The menu at... More

The view was lovely but the food is pushing average and overly salty. The front of house looked bored out of her mind and could barely manage a smile. Our waitress, Jana was nice though. So yes, the hightlights were the view and Jana. Personally, I wouldnt eat there again.

Although we arrived 10 minutes early, the hostess insisted we wait for our Noon reservation despite the many open tables. However, we didn't complain when we were given almost the best table for two in the restaurant. We started with the salmon carpaccio, delicious finely sliced wild salmon dressed with capers, garlic, spring onions, cilantro and olive oil and served... More

I ordered the veggie burger and ice t. My burger was very soggy and fell apart. I couldn't eat it. My ice t came with little of no ice and when it was refilled it's was done with absolutely no ice. If they can't make a veggie burger right they should take it off the menu. So I left disappointed... More

The pairing of the Tramway and the restaurant made for an interesting, enjoyable experience. Our appetizers and cocktails were the highlight of the meal, but the main courses were nothing to write home about. Our waiter and staff was attentive at first but after a while we were a bit neglected. Overall, for the quality of the food, the prices... More

We had a very friendly server that guided on us best choices and we all enjoyed our meals very much. It was quite chilly on the tram and especially at the top of the mountain- actually had some snow on the ground ( recommend warm clothes at this time of year especially if want to venture outside.) We heard they... More
