It is what it is: a tourist trap. The beer was a refreshing break from hiking around after waiting for someone to serve us. Our beers were enjoyed and empty while the waiter enjoyed a smoke, a cell phone break, some playing on his cell...More

There were two people working outside that we could see, a young guy and a younger dark haired woman. The woman was our server. Totally rude. The view is amazing, the experience going up the Sesselbahn was great and everyone else was friendly. Waitress we...More

The personnel is not perhaps the reason why people come here and enjoy their stay. But after a hard start and settling down on a table (or hut) outdoors, and a lengthy order of cakes and drinks, we were finally accepted. Good beer, coffee, Apple...More

Took the chair lift up so the views weren't as good as if we'd taken it down. However, the open patio at the restaurant more than made up for it. It's not expensive at all, even with wine and beer.

Take the chair lift up. The restaurant has a terrace overlooking Cochem, the Mosel and across to the castle. Did not eat here but spent time relaxing with a couple of glasses of wine. Nice friendly service. Great place to relax on a nice afternoon.

Unfortunately we got rained out during our ride. Luckily we had a covered chairlift. Didn't know there was a restaurant at the top. We jumped back on the chairlift to go back down. Was disappointed there wasn't any spectacular views going up or down.

You can walk up a footpath if you are very hardy but the chair lift is a unique way to get to the terrace restaurant. Once on top you can walk along to a the Pinner Kreuz (Cross) with a wonderful view over Cochem and...More

After going up with the chairlift, you can drop down at this quite large cafe, which offers a decent view of Cochem and the Reichsburg. The prizes are a lot higher than down in the centre of the town. Food is ok, nothing too fancy.
