Sirocco, Bangkok, Thailand

You might get vertigo at Sirroco, which is dizzyingly perched on the 63rd floor of the 5-star Lebua Bangkok hotel — 820 feet in the sky. The restaurant and its panoramic views of the city below are so popular among visitors that guests are advised to make reservation weeks in advance.

Ristorante Grotta Palazzese, Polignano a Mare, Italy

Tucked away in a dimly-lit limestone cavern with views of the crashing waters of the Adriatic Sea, it’s no wonder Ristorante Grotta Palazzese has repeatedly been voted the most romantic restaurant in the world.

Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives

The dining room of Alain Ducasse’s restaurant in Plaza Athénée is practically a work of art, where diners can sit within stainless steel “shells” below chandeliers made of thousands of crystals. The menu focuses on healthy, environmentally friendly food, like lentils with caviar and vegetables from the Versailles gardens. Expect to pay between $170 and $228 for an entrée and $52 for dessert.

Per Se, New York City

Even with its $325-a-head price tag, this temple of haute cuisine can be a tough reservation to score. Still, it’s worth the hassle (and cost) to experience Thomas Keller’s signature “oysters and pearls,” followed by a succession of eight impeccable dishes in which no ingredient is repeated.

Sheesh Mahal, Udaipur, India

This open-air restaurant, located in The Leela Palace Udaipur, lets guests take in outstanding views of Pichola Lake while dining under the stars.

Ali Barbour’s Cave Restaurant, Diani Beach, Kenya

At Ali Barbour, guests can dine inside of a cave that is thought to be between 120,000 and 180,000 years old. If that wasn’t magical enough, the cave is covered in candles, and open to the stars above.

Hôtel de Ville, Crissier, Switzerland

Late chef Benoît and his wife Brigitte Violier have earned three Michelin stars for their sumptuous French-inflected cuisine. The most decadent menu option clocks in at 11 courses (390 CHF, or about $400) and treats diners to dishes like filet of lamb and muscles with saffron. That price only goes up when you add a bottle from the restaurant’s 40-page wine list.

The meals are nothing short of excellent, and this is expected especially because Ramsay is an exquisite and talented chef who has featured on his show as well as hell’s kitchen. It is one of the high-end restaurants in London, and their meals can cost you up to $355.once in a while, some offers will drop this price to about $320.

Alain Ducasse the Dorchester in London


This is just one among the many restaurants that are run by Alain Ducasse. It is the heart of London when it comes to the restaurant business.

For this price, you can enjoy all their exquisite dishes to your fill.

Elements, Scottsdale, Arizona

Guests can enjoy award-winning cuisine while overlooking Camelback Mountain through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Dionysos Zonars, Athens, Greece

With unrivaled views of the ancient Acropolis, dining at Dionysos Zonars is heaven for art buffs. The art lesson continues, however, as the interior was designed by Greek painter Yannis Moralis, and ceramist Helen Bernardaki.

Terasa U Zlaté studně, Prague, Czech Republic

Terasa U Zlaté studně’s features a dazzling terrace overlooking the rooftops of Prague. While the building dates back to 1528, the restaurant opened around 1900, and predates the hotel on which it sits.
