The trip that you and your beloved have long awaited is your hon­ey­moon. No mat­ter how long your trip, there are some places you must visit to sat­isfy your palate. Restaurants from Asia to Europe of­fer a ro­man­tic at­mos­phere and good am­bi­ence so you and your beloved may en­joy an un­for­get­table din­ner.

Sirocco Restau­rant

If you and your spouse want to cel­e­brate your hon­ey­moon in Bangkok, don’t for­get to visit Sirocco Restau­rant.

Lo­cated on the 63rd floor of The Dome at Lebua, Sirocco is the world’s high­est al fresco restau­rant and one of Bangkok’s most cov­eted din­ing choices. It never fails to leave one mes­mer­ized with a breath­tak­ing view of Bangkok and the Chao Phraya river, an amaz­ing Sky Bar and qual­ity Mediter­ranean fare with in­gre­di­ents from the world’s best mar­kets. Live jazz mu­sic, fea­tur­ing vo­cal­ists of in­ter­na­tional re­pute, adds to its cap­ti­vat­ing am­bi­ence for a per­fect evening.

Is­abelo Gar­den Restau­rant

If the Philip­pines is your hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion, then Is­abelo Gar­den Restau­rant in the hid­den heart of Marik­ina city can be the place to cel­e­brate your hon­ey­moon to­gether. Is­abelo was built on faith and love, and ev­ery­one who dines here will feel that love is in the air. The restau­rant is named af­ter the street on which it is lo­cated, a di­rect trans­la­tion of which means “My God is Boun­ti­ful.” It is a cozy, homely gar­den restau­rant where any­one can bask in the artis­tic warm am­bi­ence while en­joy­ing abun­dant good food. Lit­tle pock­ets of space and gaze­bos around the area give you and your date pri­vacy, and the dim and colourful lights add up to the am­bi­ence to cre­ate a per­fect spot for cou­ples. It also has closed-off rooms with round ta­bles for big­ger func­tions. Is­abelo ac­cepts only ad­vance or­ders; if you or­der on the spot, your op­tions are limited to the day’s sup­plies.

The Li­brary

If Rome is your choice to spend your hon­ey­moon, so The Li­brary restau­rant, an oa­sis in the heart of Rome, can be a place for ro­man­tic din­ner with your beloved. The Li­brary is lo­cated in a hid­den al­ley in cen­tral Rome, away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of Rome’s traf­fic.

The Li­brary Restau­rant is an el­e­gant yet cozy restau­rant where you can en­joy an ex­quis­ite meal to the sub­tle back­ground of jazz mu­sic. It is an

ideal place for a ro­man­tic din­ner by can­dle­light, to cel­e­brate be­ing hus­band and wife. The so­phis­ti­cated se­lec­tion of dishes and wines makes this a unique place to share your love.

Clos Mag­giore

If Lon­don is your hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion so Clos Mag­giore, lo­cated at 33 King Street, Lon­don, can be a ro­man­tic restau­rant for your culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence. The restau­rant was re­cently hailed Lon­don’s ‘Most Ro­man­tic Restau­rant’ in Harden’s Restau­rant Guide 2013.

Clos Mag­giore of­fers an oa­sis of calm in the heart of Covent Gar­den, serv­ing beau­ti­fully pre­sented, con­tem­po­rary French cui­sine. This restau­rant is in­flu­enced by the stylish coun­try inns of Provence and Tus­cany while its unique in­te­rior of­fers an in­ti­mate set­ting for cou­ples. The blos­som-filled con­ser­va­tory has a fully re­tractable glass roof cre­at­ing a bright and airy din­ing space where guests can es­cape the hus­tle and bus­tle and en­joy a balmy lunch or treat their loved one to a ro­man­tic, star-lit din­ner.

Dur­ing the win­ter months it is trans­formed by can­dles and a roar­ing log fire into a warm and invit­ing venue. Busi­ness din­ers will be drawn to the large collection of rare brandies and co­gnacs. And the com­bi­na­tion of ex­quis­ite food, an award-win­ning wine list and im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice in such a stun­ning set­ting guar­an­tees a mem­o­rable din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Pier­chic

If Dubai is your hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion so Pier­chic must be your food des­ti­na­tion. Pier­chic fish restau­rant has a fab­u­lous lo­ca­tion, on stilts in the mid­dle of the sea just off the coast: To get to it you have to walk over an im­pos­si­bly ro­man­tic wooden pier. The stroll out to sea along the be­decked pier im­me­di­ately sets the scene for ro­mance. Pier­chic serves only the finest seafood dishes, washed down with

“The trip that you and your beloved have long awaited is your hon­ey­moon. No mat­ter how long your trip, there are some places you must visit to sat­isfy your palate”

a balmy breeze and serene views of the Gulf’s azure wa­ters. Stylish, serene and sim­ply spec­tac­u­lar, this is, af­ter all, con­sid­ered to be one of Dubai’s most uniquely lo­cated culi­nary des­ti­na­tions. The other ro­man­tic sit­u­a­tion that you can get from this restau­rant is a choice of view, es­pe­cially if you man­age to re­serve a ta­ble on the Pier­chic ter­race: un­in­ter­rupted ocean, the Burj Al Arab ho­tel, or a panorama of the beau­ti­ful Mad­i­nat Jumeirah re­sort, with its il­lu­mi­nated wind tow­ers.

Solo Per Due

Don’t for­get to visit Solo Per Due if in Italy. Solo Per Due – “Just for Two” – is the small­est restau­rant in the world: it has only one ta­ble and takes just two people at a time. This sin­gu­lar char­ac­ter­is­tic has made Solo Per Due world fa­mous, mak­ing it an un­miss­able ex­pe­ri­ence for you and your beloved, and par­tic­u­larly for the ro­man­ti­cally in­clined. The build­ing which houses Solo Per Due dates from the 19th century and is sit­u­ated in a very evoca­tive his­tor­i­cal lo­ca­tion: in the grounds are the re­mains of a Ro­man villa. When you pass through the gates of the restau­rant you are sur­rounded by a gar­den that houses a mag­nif­i­cent collection of palms from all over the world.

Dur­ing warm weather you can re­lax in the shade of a vine and en­joy an en­chant­ing view across the val­ley, dot­ted with olive groves and vine­yards, while on cold win­ter evenings guests may set­tle with an aper­i­tif in front of a roar­ing log fire. Here you will find the li­bro dei pen­sieri, or book of thoughts, where lovers who have come here from all over the world have recorded their sto­ries, be they ro­man­tic, volup­tuous or sad.

When you are ready for your meal, the lights go down, the at­mos­phere takes on a mag­i­cal qual­ity, and you can sum­mon the waiter when­ever you like with a sil­ver bell. In Italy, this is a ro­man­tic restau­rant you must visit with your spouse.
