Elevate your culinary experience in Estes Park by enjoying a great meal with a view. Visitors travel from all over the world to take in Estes Park’s stunning natural beauty, so it is only fitting that restaurants around town make it a point to showcase the great views. The team at Estes Park Condos is here to help you get a memorable meal while on your vacation. Here’s a look at the best restaurants with a view in Estes Park.

The View Restaurant

The View Restaurant certainly lives up to its name; this cliffside restaurant offers unparalleled panoramic views of the mountains and valleys that surround Estes Park. The best way to enjoy the scenery is with a table out on the balcony. Of course, The View Restaurant is also renowned for its food, as it has been voted “Best American Cuisine” in Estes Park. While The View Restaurant does accept walk-ins, we recommend reserving a table in advance of your visit.

Bird & Jim

One of the best restaurants for a romantic dinner in Estes Park, Bird & Jim delights customers with a fresh, seasonal menu, fabulous service, and great views. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer uninterrupted views of the surrounding peaks, creating an immersive connection to nature. Interesting fact: Bird & Jim is named after Isabella Bird and Mountain Jim, two inspirational figures in Estes Park’s history.

Dunraven Inn

Take in gorgeous views of Lake Estes while dining at Dunraven Inn. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you can enjoy waterfront views while indulging in entrees from a varied menu. One of the restaurant’s interesting quirks is the dollar bills that hang from the floor to the ceiling; this is a tradition that began in the 70s, where patrons sign a dollar bill and stick it somewhere in the restaurant. You can take part in this interesting ritual when you visit.

Coffee on the Rocks

Calling Coffee on the Rocks a restaurant might be a bit of a stretch; it’s first and foremost a coffee shop and a good one at that. However, in addition to serving delicious coffee and tea, they also serve cocktails and offer a small menu for breakfast and lunch. Located on a small duck pond, enjoy your beverage and a quick bite outside while basking in the beautiful scenery. It is a different type of view than most of the restaurants on this list, but one worth enjoying.
