• 10 Incredible Restaurants With Unbelievable Views

    What’s better than a superbly fabulous slap-up meal in a world class restaurant? A superbly fabulous slap-up meal in a world class restaurant with a view. Obviously.

AT.MOSPHERE

Dubai, UAE

Zoom up to the top of the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, for a bird’s eye outlook over downtown Dubai and some world class cuisine. Remember to book a window seat for the best views which stretch for miles across the Arabian Gulf. Definitely a destination to add to your bucket list.

Fangweng

Yichang, China

Don’t be put off by the seemingly dull entrance to this restaurant perched on a cliff side in Yichang. Follow the 30 metre plank road into the carved out cave and dine on local specialty dishes while you watch intrepid bungee jumpers plunge towards the Yangztze River below (before being pinged back up again, of course). 

Nautika

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Near the western entrance to Dubrovnik’s old town is this gem of a restaurant. The terrace serves up stunning views out over the Adriatic Sea and its nearby historical fortresses. The menu features lobster and fresh fish brought in daily from the local harbour, as well as organic ingredients sourced from the surrounding area.

Grotto Palazzese

Puglia, Italy

 In the 1700’s, local noblemen held banquets in this stunning cavern and it’s certainly not hard to see why. Waves hit the weathered rocks mere metres below, while you dine in style and enjoy gazing out over the atmospheric Adriatic Sea. Not surprisingly for an Italian establishment, fish and pasta dishes are the stars of the mouth-watering menu.

Duck Bay Hotel

Loch Lomond, Scotland

Nestled on the southern shores of Loch Lomond, the Duck Bay’s menu has something for every discerning diner. Fish dishes are a particular high point – the crispy tempura stack is a towering feast of prawns and vegetables – and the creamy, comforting ‘Famous Fish Pie’ is a dish you’ll want to drive back for again and again.

Galvin at Windows

Mayfair, London

This Michelin-starred institution, located on upmarket Park Lane, boasts some of the best views in the capital. Spot famous landmarks from the 360 degree view while enjoying the sumptuous menu, largely inspired by French haute cuisine.

Le Panoramic

Chamonix, France

Despite being perched at the summit of Le Brévent, this mountain top restaurant is relatively easy to get to. Simply hop into an unoccupied cabin on the nearby cable car to be transported to the top, before stopping to enjoy some delicious dining overlooking the snow-capped Mont Blanc and its neighbours.

Two Oceans

Cape point, South Africa

After exploring the craggy outcrop of Cape Point, located in the truly beautiful Table Mountain National Park, take a seat in the Two Oceans restaurant for a well earned rest. If the suns out, enjoy some of the best sushi the country has to offer on the open terrace, or if the winds are kicking up, take shelter indoors and indulge in some authentic South African fare.

The Press Lounge

Manhattan, New York City

Get away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan at the Press Lounge, located on the 16th floor of the uber-trendy INK48 Hotel. Signature cocktails and small plates are the order of the day here, while larger meals are available in sister restaurant PRINT way down on the ground floor. This venue’s life is in its location, looking directly over the Hudson and the spectacularly famous NYC skyline. You may even find yourself rubbing shoulders with a celebrity or two.

Portrait

Hotel Edelweiss, Mürren, Switzerland

Glimpses of the Swiss Alps are visible from Portrait’s windows, but to take in the grandeur and scale of the surrounding peaks, step out onto the (likely snow covered) garden terrace. Here, you can treat yourself to some truly classic Swiss food in the form of fondue, apple strudel or Toblerone mousse. Or all three if you’re stomach’s rumbling.
