Ambrosia, Santorini, Greece
Ambrosia is located on the edge of a volcanic crater in Santorini, inside the village of Oia. The terrace overlooks the Aegean Sea, the caldera rim, and some of the volcanic islands. The volcanic soil and beautiful waters deliver most of the ingredients for their signature dishes—Greek delicacies including baby calamari, salmon tartare with avocado, lamb cutlets with a red grape and mint sauce, and shrimp with grilled mango. You can sit outdoors from April to October, but if you want a table with a view it’s essential to book about a month in advance!
Le Jules Verne, Paris
This beautiful restaurant is perched inside the Eiffel Tower on the second floor—which means that it’s 410 feet above the ground and has a view of the entire city of Paris. While the menu has many traditional French dishes, Chef Alain Ducasse and his exceptional culinary team have made some very modern twists to the classic recipes. Naturally, however, the wine list is entirely French, but you can choose from a variety of vintages from across the country. You can make reservations for this restaurant up to three months in advance, and they still fill up quickly, so you have to move fast if you want a chance to visit this chic establishment in the City of Lights.
