An international restaurant known for gracing diners with violinists and tight rope walkers is now open on Lake Austin.

Quince Lakehouse opened its Capital City location last month at 3825 Lake Austin Blvd., in the former Abel’s on the Lake location.

Cofounders Texan Brian Sneed and Guadalajaran architect Chantal Arias opened the restaurant chain’s first location in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 2016. So far, so good — the San Miguel restaurant has been named both the No. 1 rooftop restaurant and No. 1 rooftop destination in the world.

Austin is the third location, following the opening of a Quince in Fort Worth earlier this year.

The menu offers a range of international dishes, including:

  • The Frida roll, containing yellowtail, avocado, serrano, and Sriracha
  • Panko crusted sea bass
  • Bao carnitas
  • Aji pepper risotto

Make a reservation to dine by the water.
