Restaurants with the best views in the world

0

In recent years we have witnessed the opening of many restaurants where the food is in the background, the great prominence is the place where it is located.

They say a look is worth a thousand words. And that's what they think because the owners of the most spectacular views as far as restaurants are concerned. Food matters, Of course, but when choosing a place to satiate our appetite we also consider the appearance and location of it. Over the years we changed our claims and are more conformist, so every time we value more content and form a perfect match continent.

And it is that the possibilities offered to us today are endless: built on a mountain restaurants, on a cliff, on a rock, next to the beach, on top of a tower or within a football field, are just some of them. We found numerous examples around the world: from north to south and from east to west there are hundreds of establishments that impress on the outside but, especially, inside and from inside. From the US to Japan, through Mexico, Kenya, Igalia, Dubai or China we see how the restoration has become a work of art not only for the palate, but also for the eyes.

It would be impossible even name all the restaurants that delight the most discerning diners even in the remotest corners. Therefore and in summary, I will then report the three most spectacular establishments according to their position in space, that is to say, if they located on terrestrial soil, in water or by the high.

The first would be the cave Ali Barbour, and Kenya, which it is believed to be between 120.000 Y 180.000 years of antiguaty. Just modified by humans, This place is quite natural because of the holes in the roof that let you see the sky and the stars. Ali Barbour as such was founded in 1981 and today there are more than 80 visitors who every day enjoy international cuisine which is dominated by fish and seafood. Its decoration with candles and extensive wine list and cocktails ideal for couples seeking a romantic evening.

If on the contrary, ours are the heights, should visit the restaurant 360, CN Tower located in Toronto. It is among the 10 highest in the world thanks to the 351 meters separating it from the ground. Run by chef Peter George, It offers a menu 55 dollars which includes entry to the lookout tower. While enjoying food, the platform on which the restaurant sits tour to reach 360 degrees.

But it is not necessary to leave Spain to enjoy fabulous views while savoring an exquisite menu. One of them is the Catalonia Gran Hotel Torre, which it houses top floor restaurant of Barcelona top 360. In Madrid we find Space 33, which can boast of being the restaurant with more height of our country. further, the menu price is relatively affordable: round 45 euros.

But if what we like is eating while listening to the sound of the waves and the sea, there is no better place The Rock. literally translated as The Rock, This restaurant has the peculiarity of settling down on a rock in the Indian Ocean. More specifically off the coast of Zanzibar, a Tanzania. It is a small paradise where you can walk, swimming or boat, it depends on how you tide. Once there you can taste the freshest seafood and a large selection of seasonal fruits; and drink a wide range including champagne, came, beer and soft drinks.

Mención aparte merece el primer restaurante submarino con cúpula de vidrio completa: el Ithaa Undersea Restaurant. Está especializado en cocina europea contemporánea y también en cocina de fusión utilizando productos locales. Se ubica dentro del hotel Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, en las Maldivas, que ha sido distinguido hasta en dos ocasiones como el mejor hotel del mundo. Todos los visitantes del restaurante coinciden en afirmar que se trata de una experiencia inolvidable, pues la cena se toma a cinco metros por debajo del mar con un sinfín de peces nadando por encima de tu cabeza.

Más allá de estos ejemplos, desde el 2006 existe un proyecto ideado por Stefan Kerkhofs y David Ghysels llamado Dinner in the Sky (cena en el cielo). Consiste en comer suspendido a 50 metros de altura gracias a la ayuda de una grúa, que alza a comensales y camareros, así como a una gran mesa a medida que permite disfrutar de una cena gourmet. El paisaje que se divisa es, sin ninguna duda, espectacular.

Esta técnica se ha extendido a medio centenar de países con gran acogida a pesar de que sus precios están, también, por las nubes: 1.000 euros la hora, sin contar el servicio de camareros ni el menú. Las mesas albergan 22 comensales y 3 camareros. Pero esto no acaba aquí ya que esta iniciativa ha nacido también en su versión terrestre: Dinner on the Road (de la que ya hemos hablado en este periódico), que consta de un vehículo semitransparente con una mesa digital alrededor de la cual se podrán sentar un máximo de 16 personas. El proyecto tiene como objetivo llevar a los clientes al destino deseado mientras disfrutan de una comida y unas vistas muy especiales.

Parece claro que en materia de restauración no está todo inventado, los empresarios se atreven con cualquier idea con tal de conseguir que su negocio sea novedoso y atractivo. Pero seguro que cuando menos lo esperemos consiguen sorprendernos de nuevo. ¿Qué será lo próximo?
