Top 10 Dining Experiences in the World

There are many lists of the world’s top dining experiences, although possibly the most esteemed is that of S. Pellegrino whose poll of acclaimed chefs and renowned food critics rate the world’s best 50 restaurants every year. We aren’t claiming to better S.Pellegrino by any means, but our collection of 10 restaurants includes some little known gems that are special for varying reasons be that their location on a ferris wheel, a restaurant that moves location, has a charity arm or features the world’s smallest waiters.


Redwood Treehouse Restaurant, Warkworth, New Zealand

Formerly known as the Yellow Treehouse, this incredible haute cuisine experience is located in a pod-shaped structure, 10 meters above the ground in a giant redwood tree just north of Auckland. Diners reach the restaurant via a treetop walkway and enjoy views over the forest. Up to 30 seated guests or 50 standing guests can be accommodated and make reservations far in advance because it's wildly popular.
