I select dining spots based on a specific criteria: which genre(s) of food will be served, whether there are gluten-free options available, price point, and, above all, what type of views they offer.
My sentiment is this: If I wanted to enjoy dinner while staring directly at a shrub, wall, or some combination of both, then I’d throw a quick meal together and eat on my back porch.
Fortunately, the following eight Austin restaurants boast views that are spectacular. Paired with a delectable selection of sustenance, they offer a delightful experience all-around.
1/ Oasis Restaurant
Rather than saving the best for last, I’m going against the grain and commencing this list with a spot that arguably possesses one of the most spectacular views in Texas (AND is my personal favorite): Oasis Restaurant. Every square inch of outdoor patio essentially serves as an observation deck, and the breathtaking views of Lake Travis easily span miles. Grab a drink, or five, and spend the entire afternoon here.
