Some restaurants offer fantastic food, others spectacular wines, but some offer something even more special, a feast for the eyes -- a breathtaking view. ABC News has compiled this list of the world's top restaurants with a view.
Set high above Queenstown, the Skyline Restaurant has been touted as "Queenstown's most spectacular location." The restaurant provides a traditional "Taste of New Zealand buffet" that includes seafood, salads and the famous South Island salmon. Beyond the food, the restaurant's design does all it can to capitalize on the spectacular view – there's no need to worry about being close to the windows as the tiered seating ensures that every table can take full advantage of the view. Also not to be missed, the Skyline Restaurant features live entertainment.
The Sunset Restaurant is certainly a restaurant with a view. The seating area overlooks Hydra Island's idyllic beaches and restaurant-goers are treated to an uninterrupted view of sunsets on the horizon. The seafood comes fresh from the Aegean Sea and the cuisine is traditionally Greek. Continuing the traditional experience, during the high season, the restaurant also offers live Greek music to entertain guests while they eat. The Sunset Restaurant's feel is a mixture of a relaxed vacation atmosphere teamed with the bohemian lifestyle of the island.
The mountains surrounding Piz Gloria not only offer stunning views for tourists but have also been featured in the James Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service." The revolving restaurant is reached by cable car and once arriving at the summit, guests find themselves in the middle of almost 200 mountains. The food also offers some 007 flair with the Bond-inspired luxury buffet breakfast. Other food on the menu is distinctly Swiss in nature and guests should also be sure to take a stroll on the terrace where they can continue to admire the view.
