There is an old cliché in real-estate saying “Location, location, location”. This usually refers to the value of the property, but when it comes to opening a restaurant, the choosing of a perfect location can make a big difference between having a good dinner to having a spectacular, breathtaking, and mesmerizing experience.
Here are some restaurants that didn’t settle for high-quality cuisine and chose the most amazing locations, that offer a once in a lifetime experience.
Strofi Restaurant, Athens, Greece
Imagine having a nice dinner with a view of the cradle of civilization, where the ancient ancestors of the humanity as we know it had drawn its origins from. Now stop imagining. Strofi, a unique restaurant in the middle of Athens invites you to enjoy its special Greek cuisine in a magical atmosphere, with a perfect view of the Parthenon, on the hill of the Acropolis. In other words, here is your chance for a once in a lifetime historic meal.
Ayung Terrace, Bali, Indonesia
A visit to Bali couldn’t be complete without a dinner in the middle of the tropical forests of Indonesia’s most celebrated province. The Ayung Terrace, located on the balcony of the four seasons hotel resort, is offering beautiful views right into the heart of the Ayung River Valley. Next to the breathtaking sights of the valley below, the diners are presented with traditional Indonesian cuisine, followed by themed dinners and Balinese cooking classes.
La View Restaurant, Bali, Indonesia
While you are already in the neighborhood, why not enjoying the views of the Indonesian forests from another beautiful point of view in the La View Restaurant, an intimate fusion restaurant, which serves south-east Asian cuisine infused by the traditional French culinary art. Be sure to have a romantic dinner in one of the restaurant’s Bird nests, a unique set of natural terraces, floating above the beautiful Ayung River.
Delaire Graff Restaurant, Stellenbosch, South Africa
This South African Estate, located in the Stellenbosch Valley, just 30 miles outside of Cape Town, is the perfect place for fine cuisine and wine lovers. The Delaire Graff Restaurant, overlooking a beautiful vineyard, mesmerizing gardens and the amazing views of the Banhoek Valley, is definitely one of its kind paradises.
Skyline’s Stratosfare Restaurant, Queenstown, New Zealand
Here is one location in New Zealand that wasn’t filmed during the “Lord of the Rings” saga, but even though Peter Jackson has neglected this piece of jewel, we couldn’t close this list without a small trip to the Skyline’s Stratosfare Restaurant & Bar, which is located at the top of the Skyline Gondola of Queenstown. The panoramic views visible from the restaurant’s windows will keep you mesmerized, while the kitchens will make sure you will not hunger, with its delicious New Zealand Cuisine.
