Apart from good food and drinks, a foolproof recipe for a memorable meal requires vivid vistas.
This list is our #RadarList of dining destinations with picture-postcard views that will take your dining adventure up a notch.
Ristorante Altrabucco da Mimí
For a seafood-focused restaurant that makes you feel like dining in a fisherman’s home, Al Trabucco da Mimì in Peschici, Italy is the place to be. The menu here celebrates the cuisine of the sea in a rustic, wooden setting decked out with fishing tools to exude the same friendly feel that of a fishing village.
There’s no problem good food with a view can’t fix. Especially if the food is antipasto platter and the view is that of the charming Cinque Terre. The hillside restaurant, Nessun Dorma in Manarola, is not your typical Italian restaurant; the venue offers no pizza or pasta, but only antipasti that are made up of only hyper-local, seasonal products and an impressive selection of wine produced in Cinque Terre and other parts of Italy.
Borgo Santo Pietro Saporium
For a soil-to-plate restaurant that will leave you awestruck with great fare and grand landscape, head over to Borgo Santo Pietro Saporium at Borgo Santo Pietro in Palazzetto, Italy.
The restaurant–with its team of talented chefs, sommeliers, cheesemakers, gardeners, foragers, and fermentation gurus–has masterminded the zero-kilometre menu to be enjoyed in their outdoor dining area that is adjacent to a lush garden.
Paradiso St. Moritz
Feast in style at Paradiso St. Moritz, Switzerland. The restaurant-slash-mountain club boasts a mesmerizing view of the Alps. There, you can relish in the snow-kissed mountainscape in the winter and a verdant landscape in the spring, while enjoying a constant flow of yummy food, drinks and vibey music.
Cala Restaurante & Lounge
This wave-kissed restaurant is literally set on the seafront of Circuito de Playas, Lima, Peru. The menu reads an abundance of modern Peruvian cuisine that is sure to wow your taste buds with new toothsome twists.
Fly Away Creative Restaurant
Spark up the romance with your better half with a date night at Fly Away Creative Restaurant in Imerovigli, Greece. Like the name suggests, diners can expect Mediterranean cuisine that comes with creative spins, served with a backdrop of the Aegean Sea.
SEEN Restaurant & Bar Bangkok
This riverside rooftop restaurant and bar comes with a fascinating 360-degree view of Bangkok and a scrumptious spread of Portuguese-Brazilian fare, as well as concocted drinks to keep you company as you soak in the charm of Bangkok and Chao Phraya River.
Jade Mountain Club
Jade Mountain St. Lucia is known for its remarkable design that blends harmoniously with the surrounding nature of Saint Lucia. Their in-house restaurant, Jade Mountain Club, is also treasured for its unique “Jade Cuisine,” which is a delectable mashup of tropical food cultures from around the world, but cooked with local produce. What makes the food here even greater is the view of the Gros Piton and Petit Piton.
