I’m not only a travel junkie but I’m also a big foodie and I like to eat my way through the world, so far I have been to over 80 cities across the globe.
That’s a lot of meals of different cuisines from all over the globe! Here I’m bringing to you the best restaurants around the world.
Once you eat there, you’ll see food through a very different lens. Things won’t be the same anymore.
I warned you!
Ranked as the ‘Most Beautiful Coffee House in the World’ and it is quite rightly so!
It is exquisitely decorated in the most luxurious of ways with colorful paintings on the ceiling, lush red velvet detailing the rails and chairs, golden details dotted around, and marble pillars.
Its beauty is overwhelming (in a good way).
It is a must to add it on your to-visit list! Please promise me you have book marked it on your Google maps Wishlist.
We stayed at the New York hotel, which meant we can visit the café at any time we wished without having to queue up for a table. If you are short on time and are not staying in the hotel then I strongly suggest you book a table as the queues can get very lengthy.
What’s good there?
Everything! From the starters to the mains to the desserts and also the gold dust-decorated lattes.
When you walk in here you need to let yourself indulge in the atmosphere, the music, the food, and everything.
Forget the price tag. It’s a one-in-a-lifetime experience.
One of the most iconic restaurants in the world, dare I say. The restaurant first opened in 1866, rich in history and culture it has been a dining spot for royalty and celebrities alike, Queen Elizabeth had paid the place a visit after hearing so much about it.
It was our last night in Budapest, we had such a lovely relaxing time at the Szechenyi spa baths.
The dinner reservations were a lovely surprise, not many people were there. The place is so elegant from the inside, I wish I had dressed up more for the occasion. The service was impeccable, I must say. Lots of attention to detail.
You can choose a la carte or a tasting menu. They cater to pescatarians and vegetarians as well. The food was a delight, I took the duck tasting menu and it was a culinary journey that I fell in love with.
There’s a mini gift shop there as well that you can take food items back home as gifts or souvenirs.
As we finished the meal, we looked out of the window and it had started snowing. Not in an on my god it’s snowing how am I going to get back to the hotel kind of way but in a this is a romantic magical moment of snow falling with Christmas carols playing in the background, the decoration is up on the tree and everyone is being merry with a full heart.
This place was a godsend after a long day walking around Budapest, the weather was cold in November and we just needed something to eat. I found it on a quick Google search, it was conveniently located at a walking distance from our hotel.
When you walk, you’ll get the vibe of a sports bar, but it was a nice sports bar vibe (not that I have been to many of them). It is suited for singles, couples, and families as well. It’s decorated with high chairs and high tables, don’t dress up for this place you won’t fit it in – anything casual would do.
They have a very unique BBQ philosophy using pure beech smoke, and their selection of meats is spot on.
I went for the Reuben sandwich. It was divine! One of the best meals I’ve had that made me go Mama Mia at first bite.
They have a very wide selection of items on the menu, and they all look so good you’d definitely want to come here time and time again to try them all.
On the small Croatian island of Solta, hanging effortlessly on the seaside Paserala not only promises great food and excellent service but also that mystical je ne sais quoi feel to the ambiance.
We went for a dinner date, yes, I might have been high on the endorphins, but it still was an experience to be had.
The lower deck is lit by dim lighting, the waves of the sea lapping at the shore, a fisherman’s boat swaying with the waves, the smell of the sea, a light breeze in the air, the seating and table made out of rustic wood. It was picture-perfect.
I would recommend going for the seafood and for dessert, you should order the passion fruit panna cotta with two spoons 😉
Don’t order a taxi back straight away, take a stroll, enjoy the moonlight, the stars and catch those feels (even if you are solo).
How do you end a perfect day at the beach? Well, you head to Martini’s Marchi restaurant!
On Maslinica bay on the island of Solta, you will find this jewel of the Mediterranean.
They have both a restaurant and a hotel.
I’ve only tried the restaurant which is superb but from what I have read the hotel wouldn’t disappoint either.
Just as the sun was on its way down kissing the sails of the yachts lining the marina, we sat to have dinner there. With a live guitarist playing in the backdrop, the experience was a sheer bliss moment that you wouldn’t want to end.
I can see that the menu has changed from when we were there, I ordered the lobster – it was sublime.
It is one to stop by if you make it to the island of Solta.
I hope these five culinary gems have left your stomach rumbling, taste buds buzzing and your mouth watering!
There will be more coming to this series of best restaurants I found across the world, so keep your eyes peeled and your appetite raring to go!
