Restaurants with a view are always glorious. So a restaurant on a cliff 450 feet above Austin's Lake Travis might be more of a spectacle than anything else you've seen before. This is hardly an impossible sight to see, thanks to The Oasis in Austin. The restaurant sums everything up in it's name, from their food to their location - it's truly an Austin paradise.
Traveling anywhere on Lake Travis is going to be a magical ride no matter what. The Hill Country is practically made for road tripping with your friends. Once you've arrived to The Oasis, you've already driven through several miles of beautiful hill country, leading to the ultimate treasure chest! The Oasis has a decked out menu, massive margaritas, and plenty to shop and see. What's great about having dinner there is that you'll be able to experience a sunset like none you've ever seen before.
While there is both seating inside and outside, the obvious choice is a spot on their terrace. You'll want to time it right to get to experience the sun setting, but even if you're early there's still plenty to do to kill time. There are stores galore with souvenirs and Austin aesthetics to take back home with you. If you'd rather spend more of your time eating, then starting off with one of their delicious appetizers such as their queso or beef empenadas makes all the sense in the world. Oh, and don't forget to order one of their massive (and very strong, trust me) frozen margaritas while you're at it!
There are events happening all the time at The Oasis, like their famous Father's Day Brunch! You'll probably see a wedding or two as well, as their location makes the perfect venue for that sort of thing. Their hours range from opening at 11 am and closing at 10 pm depending on the day. Reservations aren't taken at the restaurant (besides parties and large groups), so be sure to get there early or prepare for a line! But don't worry, every spot at this restaurant has a spectacular view, no matter where you end up getting to sit.
They even have the cutest stairwell of locks that you can contribute to. Bring your own lock that you can decorate however you wish and throw away the key as you lock it onto the beautiful stairwell to leave your mark forever.
