good views around lake travis & in austin?
sorry for the touristy question hounds, but what's a good place for a drink and the view around lake travis? of course i'm not expecting any great food, but that would be bonus. maybe the OASIS? TRAVIS? where would you suggest to watch the sunset or maybe brunch?
closer to town, i was thinking of stopping in the HULA HUT for this purpose too and maybe if anything try some fish tacos.
lastly & speaking of views, is there a hotel bar or roofdeck or anything in downtown austin that's up high enough where i can go to get a good look around w/ my camera?
thoughts? thx all.
thx for the recs everyone.
we ended up going to THE IGUANA (late afternoon during the week). it was perfect. i'm not a service oriented person but i have to say that besides the great views the best part was the nice young waiter guy who held down the whole fort with style. the margs were best of the visit, very refreshing. the menu looked ok, but we just stuck with chips & salsa as it appears most people do.
note be careful driving in & out of there, the traffic is "suburban hectic."
next visit will likely be HULA HUT.
still looking for a downtown tall building bar/restaurant/observation view. any suggestions?
Cafe Bleu has excellent food AND a view. They also have a very nice brunch.
They've just opened for the season
