About the restaurant
Luxury takes root in the heart of Austin at Nido, bringing the charm of the area together with the culinary techniques of coastal Europe, all perched above Lady Bird Lake and the energetic cityscape.

Nido is located on the rooftop of The Loren at Lady Bird Lake - recently named by Conde Nast Traveller and Travel & Leisure Magazine as "one of the hottest hotel openings in the world." Nido nods to the surrounding and native Hill Country, giving diners a one-of-a-kind respite to experience worldly-travel through food. Nido’s selection of carefully crafted, seasonal menus are internationally-inspired with a focus on classical technique.

Reservations are available for inside the dining room and the dining tables in the bar. Lounge seating is available on a walk in basis in the bar and on the terrace for drinks and snacks.

The waiter was really friendly, and he even took pictures of us on the rooftop. The drinks were really good. They weren’t too strong, but they were good enough and flavorful. I love the intimate setting and I love how you could see the people swimming in the pool. The hotel valet parking was very affordable($10) and the rooftop was easy to get to. Also we will be returning to this establishment.

Our waitress Janelle was great! The sliders and wings were the best. Tiki was fun and should continue doing it as a pop up

We started off with a few cocktails and had some small bites ( ceviche and shrimp tacos). Both have great flavor. The views were STUNNING and were able to catch sunset.
