Number 1: The Aprazível Restaurant, Rio 

Located in the Santa Theresa district, the word aprazível means pleasant, a fantastic understatement for this gastronomic alfresco dining experience with the chance to watch the sun setting over Guanabara Bay.

Number 2: Amante, Ibiza

Highly praised as Ibiza’s most beautiful rural restaurant, Amante is set in a stunning cove, overlooking the Sol Den Serra bay. Surrounded by dramatic rocks and lush greenery, it’s the ultimate alfresco location for relaxing on the beach and enjoying modern Mediterranean cuisine.


Number 3: SUSHISAMBA, London

Claudio Cardoso, Executive Chef of the City’s 38 storey high SUSHISAMBA, describes his food as ‘something limitless – be that in flavour, visually or bringing back memories. I want to stimulate, introduce people to new and adventurous ways of eating and encourage them to see food as a piece of art from conception to elaboration and consumption’. Just WOW.


Number 4: Sirocco, Bangkok 

Aside from being the World’s Highest Alfresco Restaurant, Sirocco was recently awarded the Perfect 10/10 by Thailand Tatler in all categories: Food, Wine, Ambience and Service. And that’s before you check out the city views from this iconic rooftop restaurant.

An incredible combination of ecological oasis, ultimate wilderness experience and gourmet dining under the bright stars of the Milky Way. Embers really does provide a jaw-dropping location overlooking the valley. Lit by a roaring fire, candles and lanterns, it’s a truly magical experience.
