Whether dining afloat or al fresco, sipping stellar wines on a clifftop or at a Michelin-starred spot, there's a restaurant that will float your boat.
Italian Clifftop Dining
This is a sub-heading
Set in a spectacular location overlooking the Amalfi coastline’s enchanting Bay of Nerano, Quattro Passi is widely considered to be one of the region’s best restaurants. Its chef-patron Antonio Mellino is a two-Michelin-starred pasta maestro, after all. Enjoy creatively inspired, authentically Italian cuisine and the unmissable opportunity to choose from the more than 1,400 different wines in the restaurant’s cellar. Arrive in style and save your breath for discussing the menu – Quattro Passi will send a classic car to chauffeur you up the vertiginous ascent.
WILD PICNIC DOWN UNDER
Indulge in a gourmet picnic feast of Tasmanian delicacies as you explore the dramatic wilderness of Australia’s tiny Tasman Island, off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania. Catch a glimpse of soaring sea eagles, wheeling albatrosses, pods of dolphins and rare fur seals while savouring exquisite local produce. The luxury hampers include succulent steamed abalones, drizzled with lemon and extra-virgin olive oil, award-winning King Island cheeses and Tasmanian-farmed Atlantic salmon, which you are invited to wash down with a magnum of 2008 Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay.
Treat your taste buds to an epicurean adventure on the island paradise of Phuket. The shoreside restaurant Kan Eang, on Chalong Bay, has served mouthwatering seafood for more than 40 years. Its specialities, which include cuttlefish, tiger prawns and blue crab, are barbecued over coconut husks for a unique flavour and aroma. Meanwhile, the more culinary adventurous still can literally push the boat out at the floating restaurant Kruvit Raft, which is moored just off Laem Hin Pier, with access by longtail speedboat. ‘Live seafood is stored in nets between the rafts, so you can pick out a supremely fresh meal,’ says Barbara Müller, senior charter broker in Palma, Mallorca.
