Going out to eat is not only about the presentation of the food, but the ambiance of the restaurant setting as well. Fine dining is a sensory experience of tastes, scents, texture of the food, and the beauty of the atmosphere itself. And while your dining choices are endless, here’s an assortment of some of today’s most beautiful restaurants from around the globe.

Turandot, Moscow Russia
Their website states: “Offers a unique synthesis of the past and present, reality, modern kitchen and a gallant spirit of the festivities.” You will feel as if you arrived in Baroque Russia, while dining in the middle of a grand opera house or as a guest to a queen. The Florentine courtyard is beautifully spacious, with fountains, pillars, and marble replicas of ancient statues, such as Neptune. The balconies, grand staircases, and golden archways and the paintings on the walls and ceilings all tell their own stories with the perfect blend of art and literature. The menu is an Asian-French blend that is a unique and visually appealing dining experience.

Ali Barbour’s Cave Restaurant, Kenya
Thirty years ago, George and Jackie Barbour found a 180,000 year old cave, located 30 km south of Mombasa. With the exception of the stone floor, the kitchen, and a few necessary additions, everything about the cave remains the same as the day they found it. A winding staircase leads down 10 metres into an intimate and romantic atmosphere with warm candlelight and a view of the stars overhead. The setting is complemented by their International cuisine, with a focus on seafood. The recipes are made from the freshest, high quality ingredients. This beautiful cave experience is not recommended for guests bringing children under the age of 6.

Le Louis XV, Monte Carlo
Located in the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, Chef Alain Ducasse’s flagship restaurant is like stepping back in time to the court of Versailles. The dining room is a soft blend of dream-like whites, gold, and delicate rose. Windows surround the dining room, crystal chandeliers hang low, as a beautiful painting adorns the high ceiling and portraits of royalty look down upon the diners. The menu is a flavorful Mediterranean food, made from the freshest, high quality local ingredients.

Rainforest Hideaway, St. Lucia, West Indies
If you have ever wanted to eat among the trees of a rainforest and not lose the luxury of fine dining, the Rainforest Hideaway is the perfect experience. The candlelight setting, floral bouquets on the table, and soft lighting make this an intimately romantic and glorious experience. Located on a cozy dock, overlooking the most beautiful Marigot Bay, you can watch the fish, and hear the choir of rainforest creatures as you partake of a Caribbean meal created from the freshest local herbs, produce, and seafood. The menu is a two or three course prix fixe dinner. Bruschetta is included, compliments of the chef. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
