Rangali Island, Maldives: Ithaa
The Maldives is well-known for its breathtaking white-sand and crystal-clear beaches. Ithaa, the world’s first undersea restaurant with spectacular coral garden scenery, is located 5 meters beneath sea level on Rangali Island. Fusion meals paired with great wines will undoubtedly impress you here. Going to the Maldives is difficult enough, but getting to Ithaa is much more difficult because you’ll need either a seaplane or a boat.
Tierra del Fuego, Argentina: La Mesita de Almanza
Are you looking for the most fabulous secluded restaurants in the world that serve fresh seafood? Then Tierra del Fuego — literally, “the end of the earth” is what you’re looking for. It is located in a small fishing village on a remote island in Argentina. You can enjoy a hefty seafood variety that was gathered directly from the local market. Eating in a bit of a fishing town with a view of the Beagle Channel is indeed a pleasure. Almanza also promises a highly picturesque drive.
Zanzibar, Tanzania: Michanwi Pingwe Restaurant
A difficult restaurant to forget is located off the shores of Michanwi Pingwe beach in Zanzibar, Tanzania. It’s located on a rocky outcropping in the middle of the sea. The southeast shore of Zanzibar is often regarded as one of the most magnificent in East Africa, and it sets the setting for an unforgettable journey. Although there are only 12 tables provided, you must make a reservation before sailing the water to feast on The Rock’s European-inspired regional cuisine.
China: Mount Huashan Teahouse
A Buddhist and Daoist temple situated atop on the southernmost summit of China’s sacred Mount Hua serves refreshing drinks. But to taste some of their world-renowned tea, you must climb “the Heavenly Stairs,” which was dubbed as one of the world’s most terrifying hiking trails. These stairs are cut into the side of a 7,000-foot-high mountain, with no railing to prevent you from plunging to your death. This one might not be suitable for you if you are terrified of heights. But don’t worry, if you’re brave enough, you can hire a harness, a total lifesaver.
Machu Picchu, Peru: Tampu Restaurant
Hiking is the most common way to get to Tampu Restaurant in Machu Picchu. Tampu Restaurant is operated at the magnificent Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, just at the entrance to Machu Picchu. It’s a foodie’s heaven you can find at the summit of the Andes Mountains. While dining, floor-to-ceiling windows flood Tampu with daylight and surround you with lush scenery. Indigenous foods such as creamy Oxapampa cheese, crisp palm heart, and aromatic Sacred Valley mushrooms are deliciously presented with a South American twist. You may rest in the lodge and eat at the restaurant, or you can stop in for lunch or supper on your way up into the mountains.
Chamonix, France: Refuge du Plan de l’Aiguille
One of the most fantastic isolated restaurants globally is perched on the side of a mountain overlooking Chamonix, France. You will have to take the cable lift up to the midway of Aiguille du Midi, then hike along the mountain for around 15 minutes to the restaurant. Many say not to expect great meals because it’s a rural cottage. However, many visitors find the Tartiflette at this restaurant indescribably delicious. You can also expect to eat some of the finest French mountain food you’ve ever had.
Faroe Islands: Koks
Koks, named among the Time’s Great Places in 2018, is the Faroe Islands’ first Michelin-starred restaurant. It has been described as the world’s most distant culinary destination, located 200 miles north of Scotland’s coast. Kok, the most outstanding restaurant in the Nordic archipelago, specializes in indigenous Faroese delicacies and features a 17-course tasting menu that you must taste, using ingredients produced or cultivated on the Faroes or discovered in the nearby seas. Because the restaurant can only accommodate 24 guests each night, reservations are needed.
Fantastic food at these breathtaking locations surely will provide you a journey that you would never forget. You can always find the websites of these amazing destinations online for more information.
