Perched on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, Michelin-starred restaurant Le Jules Verne is another Alain Ducasse destination. It teams contemporary French cuisine with postcard-worthy views of Paris from the heart of the iconic wrought-iron edifice. A private elevator whisks you away from the tourist hordes for lunch or dinner when the City of Light is at its sparkling best. In the evenings, choose between a five- or six-course Experience Menu, with optional sommelier-guided French wine pairings. Top-notch dishes span foie gras, seared sea scallops with cauliflower and gold caviar, and venison with chestnut and pumpkin. Book online and dress to impress. 2nd Floor, Restaurant Tour Eiffel, Avenue Gustave Eiffel, 75007
2. New York
– Grand Salon, Baccarat Hotel
The Grand Salon earns its name through a palette of platinum and sparkling neutral shades, Jouffre silk-covered walls, parquet floors, and plush, high-backed banquettes. Here, drinks and dining complement social exchanges beneath a 64-arm Baccarat chandelier. Days debut with pastries on its central marble table; evenings begin when the circle of champagne bottles appears in a bright silver vasque; nights end with craft cocktails in cut-crystal tumblers. Whirring white-hot with a sense of secrecy, this is the hotel’s humming heart.
The shaggy chairs along the windows of the Baccarat Hotel’s second-floor Grand Salon looked creepily familiar. Even in muted evening light, when “chandeliers have dimmed to a coquettish wattage,” as their Web site puts it, the white, black and brown fur covering them seemed to closely resemble the creatures running rampant around town.
Visually stunning with a dose of French “je ne sais quoi”, the Grand Salon is inherently memorable—a quality well-suited for lavish celebrations.
Eating at Aroma is a truly exclusive fine-dining experience. Its terrace, situated on the top floor of the 17th-century Palazzo Manfredi looks out directly onto the Colosseum from the east (we recommend you book a table for dinner to watch as the sun sets behind it), and is only large enough to fit a handful of guests.
With a five-star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences and a Michelin Star to its name, it promises more than just breathtaking views, and guarantees a first-class menu and service to accompany the brilliant backdrop of one of the greatest architectural wonders of Imperial Rome.
4. London –
Even if you’re a stone-cold unromantic Monty Burns type, Berners Tavern can and will win you over. For one, it’s one of the most beautiful buildings in London, an opulent structure rammed with classic features, wall-to-wall paintings and luxuriously cosy booths. It’s a place which is bustling and yet allows you privacy. Secondly, it’s masterminded by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton.
Unsurprisingly, the food is beautifully decadent, rich and plentiful. The chargrilled focaccia with burrata, heritage tomatoes and honey is a delight. While the mac and cheese is the best you’ll have. Smoother than a Quincy Jones anecdote, it’s pure indulgence. A must have is the chocolate and hazelnut flaming Alaska for two. Crunchy, boozy, it’s a scientific wonder. Order it with your significant other, wait until they go to the toilet and then demolish it to yourself. Pure romance.
Table choice: The corner table next to the kitchen – a perfect seat to watch the buzz from afar.
Good for: Decadent, hearty meals.
Standout romantic feature: The beautiful interior and flaming Alaska dessert.
5. St. Lucia
– The Cliff
at Cap, St Lucia St Lucia’s signature restaurant has a sparkling view (you can even see Martinique), a broad wine list and superb offering of local and continental cuisine. But it’s Chef Craig Jones’ commitment to creativity that truly inspires — it’s the kind of restaurant that even makes its own limoncello and ages its own rum.
Cong – The Dungeon at Ashford Castle
Ashford Castle is world renowned as one of the top venues for a wedding, and not surprisingly, the castle also offers one of the most romantic places in the world to pop the question. If you can afford to stay, you’ll be able to indulge those medieval castle fantasies by going for horseback rides on the sprawling property as well as enjoying cruises on the lake. Inside the turn-of-the-century estate, rooms are the epitome of romance, with staterooms, located in the oldest part of the castle that dates back to the 13th century, featuring original fireplaces and claw-foot bathtubs. In 2014, Conde Nast Travel ranked Ashford as the best place to propose for “Downtown Abbey fanatics.”
Dramatic and Atmospheric. As its name would suggest, the unique setting located on the lower ground floor of the castle invites diners to enjoy a range of satisfying dishes from the bistro-style menu with a focus on traditional Irish cuisine beneath the historic curved stone ceiling. Together with a relaxed ambience, it makes for a wonderful and memorable dining experience. The Dungeon’s menu provides a true taste of the unique and exclusive West of Ireland experience.
Creative Irish cuisine, inspired use of the finest seasonal ingredients from the West of Ireland and an extensive wine cellar make any stay at Ashford Castle a gourmet’s delight.
Chef Philippe Farineau, gives fine expression to the dishes offered in the four main dining rooms – whether it’s fine dining in the grandeur of the George V Dining Room, casual dining in the comfortable setting of Cullen’s at the Cottage or The Dungeon, or a delightful Afternoon Tea in the elegant Connaught Room.
7. San Franscisco , Waterbar
Gorgeous views, bold flavors and a whimsical interior have made Waterbar a seafood-lover’s dream.
Waterbar is one of the Bay Area’s finest sustainable seafood restaurant, and features a full lounge, views of the Bay Bridge and the Ferry Building, private dining, San Francisco’s best patio and unbeatable cocktails and service. Located on the Embarcadero between the Bay Bridge and the Ferry Building.
Definitely one of my best restaurants in the Bay Area.
Dubbed a ‘dark shrine to the Moscow excesses of sex, violence and food’ when it first opened, Bon is one of the most unusual restaurants in Moscow.
The creation of renowned designer Philippe Starck, Bon’s interior is an eclectic mix of black walls,
dripping candles and Kalashnikov rifles posing as lampshades. Food critics have labeled the décor anything from Gothic to gangster, and despite several ownership changes the social cream of Moscow have continued to flock to the place.
The food is of a high standard and a broad mix of European cuisine, while the atmosphere has a definite restaurant-club vibe.
