Restaurants with great views

A restaurant with great food can be peerless, but one with an inspiring view can elevate your experience to the sublime. From stunning waterfront views to a restaurant within one of the world’s most iconic buildings, and one of the world’s highest restaurants, we bring you three restaurants where the views more than match the supreme cuisine. Go with your eyes wide open and enjoy the view.


What is a ‘great view’?
While high-rise cities such as New York (Asiate) and Tokyo (Sky Restaurant 634) guarantee expansive urban views, consider al fresco dining at altitude at Sirocco, Tower Club at lebua in Bangkok, or underwater views at Ithaa in the Maldives. Let nature dominate at the stunning and precarious restaurants of Positano along Italy’s Amalfi Coast or European ski resorts such as Chamonix in France.

Felix, Hong Kong

Set atop the 28th floor of the legendary colonial-era waterfront hotel The Peninsula, the Philippe Starck-designed interior of Felix more than matches its modern European menu and stunning harbour views. Take in the iconic views of the ‘fragrant harbour’ after which Hong Kong is named in luxurious high-ceilinged surrounds.
