Overlooking Lake Austin and its surrounding hills sits Austin’s newest lakeside restaurant, Quince Lakehouse. This new addition to the Austin food scene comes highly regarded ­– Quince, San Miguel, Mexico was named “Best Rooftop Restaurant in the World” in 2018 and 2022. After successful openings in San Miguel, Mexico and Fort Worth, Texas, Lakehouse is the third location in the famed Quince chain that opened earlier this month.

Located off Lake Austin Boulevard, amongst other iconic Austin establishments in Oyster Landing Marina, this location is convenient for both boaters coming to dock and couples looking for a date night with a view.

This swanky, waterfront establishment cultivates an upscale environment while keeping a laid-back, al fresco dining experience. To round off your evening, take a post-dinner walk through the beautiful Tarrytown neighborhood, gazing at the lakefront houses and enjoying the sites.

A Dining Experience

The atmosphere of a restaurant is almost as important as the food served. The view from the outdoor dining area of this restaurant speaks for itself. Interesting seating arrangements, ranging from couches and comfortable chairs to large round tables for larger groups are scattered throughout the patio for a casual and conversational environment. Make it a casual cocktail hour or an upscale dinner party. With a “smart casual” dress code, feel free to dress it up or down.

Quince Lakehouse offers ample seating for all customers, with two covered outdoor decks, one uncovered deck as well as an indoor dining room. They can accommodate most party sizes. From an intimate dinner reservation to a wedding rehearsal dinner venue, enjoy space to host your event and create lasting memories.

Curated Menu

You will find light Mexican fare such as street corn ribs, ahi tuna tostadas, and more sharable plates on the Quince menu. For a party of two, Quince servers recommend ordering four to five menu items for dinner. Notable menu items include their sushi rolls and French No-Dip Sliders. The beauty of a sharable menu is that a large group will be able to try one of each menu item, so nothing goes untried.

Do not miss out on Quince’s specialty cocktails. A menu of house cocktails, highballs, beer and wine is offered, but their skilled bartenders can make any drink you desire. Served in a beautiful glass with colorful garnish, these drinks are Instagram-worthy. The house margaritas, classic, spicy or skinny, pair beautifully with the flavors of the menu.
