Lua
Carre Santa Caterina de alexandria 1 07108 Soller

Before our trip to Majorca, we did quite a bit of research about the best restaurants on the island we should visit and Lua kept coming up in our research. As it was located in the town Soller where we were staying, it was extra convenient for us to visit it, which we did on a Friday lunch time. Lua is located in quite an interesting yellow corner building which stands out. Also most of the restaurants in Sollers are located closer to the water overlooking the boats, but Lua is one row behind them on a small hill, so you are slightly further away from the water, but the view from the 1st floor restaurant is probably better and you can see the port and the expensive boats. The interior of the restaurant seemed a bit more upscale than the other restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Alemagou
Fetelia Beach

I was in Mykonos for my friend’s wedding and on the day of the wedding for lunch we wanted to go somewhere nice in Mykonos. One of the members of the wedding party recommended Alemagou and said that it was a great place for lunch on one of the nicest beaches in Mykonos, Ftelia. Ftelia beach is not the most popular one, and so has a nice intimate feeling to it, despite being full of people (the other beaches in Mykonos are way more crowded).

When we arrived, Alemagou definitely looked lovely. It seemed super fun with people drinking wine and cocktails, swimming, tanning and generally having fun. It has a great atmosphere, and a beautiful décor, one of the nicest places in Mykonos that I went to, with a beautiful view of the sea. When we first arrived they asked if we had a booking, and we did not, so they almost did not have any space for us, but managed to find a small table. But if you want to come here, especially in a larger group, make sure you book.

Sea Satin Market
Harbor at the Windmills Near the Mitropolis Cathedral, Hora

Sea Satin Market restaurant is the restaurant part of the Caprice venture in Mykonos (they also have a bar). Sea Satin Market is located in one of the most, if not the most, beautiful locations in Mykonos town, the tables are so close to the beautiful Aegean sea, you almost feel like you are eating on the sea. Sea Satin Market is an upmarket Greek tavern restaurant that I visited on a Friday night, for my friend’s pre-wedding party.

Sea Satin Market has that beautiful Greek tavern look, with white tables and chairs. The menu of Sea Satin Market focuses on fresh fish and seafood (but they also have steak for meat lovers), and you can watch a fish of your choice being grilled on the open fire grills, which is what we did. We did not choose our dishes, as we were there as part of a big party and so we had a set menu, but the dishes were wonderful.

Parkstone Bay Café
Turks Lane Poole BH14 8EW
Dorset
United Kingdom
GB

I was trying to find on google the best restaurants in Poole and Parkstone Bay Café came up. Parkstone Bay Café is located on Turks Lane in Lilliput, Poole in the middle of the Parkstone Bay Marina and I guess mainly meant for the Parkstone Bay Marina users who keep their impressive sailing boats there. As you sit in Parkstone Bay Café you can watch the boats and the sea. The café has an outside and an indoor section. We had not booked and wanted to come here for lunch so we unfortunately could not get to sit outdoors as everything was fully booked and we barely managed to get a table inside. As we arrived here for lunch we also saw a lot of people having breakfast here, so you can come here at any part of the day, including for dinner (but book!).

Shell Bay Seafood Restaurant

Shell Bay Seafood Restaurant is a fish and seafood restaurant, as the name suggests, in Poole, Dorset. It is located just on the end of the Studland Bay, which is an amazing location as it overlooks the sea from so many different sides. It is absolutely beautiful to be sitting in the restaurant and watching the sea and the nature. We came here for lunch on a Saturday and it had a nice relaxing atmosphere and our waiter was very good.

City Social
25 Old Broad Street EC2N 1HQ

City Social is the new restaurant by Jason Atherton (also behind the Michelin star Pollen Street Social, Little Social and Social Eating House and other restaurants in Asia) and is located in Tower 42, one of the tallest buildings in the city of London. The restaurant however is not located on one of the top floors, but is on level 24 (and you get there by taking a different elevator to the main one, a mistake which I made) but nevertheless the panoramic view of London (and mainly of east London) is wonderful.

Ting
Shangri La Hotel, 32 London Bridge Street SE1 9SG
London
United Kingdom
GB

Shangri La hotel in the Shard has finally opened and with it 3 new destinations – Ting (restaurant), Lang (café) and Gong (bar). I have been to the other three restaurants in the Shard - Aqua Shard, Hutong and Oblix – and naturally wanted to visit Ting as well. Ting is located on the 35th floor, slightly higher than the other restaurants and overlooks the south side of London, so the view is slightly different.

Sunset Grill & Bar
Kuruçeşme Mh., Yol Sk No:2
Istanbul
Turkey

Sunset Grill & Bar is one of the upscale restaurants in Istanbul that is located on a hill and overlooks the Bosphorus strait, Bosphorus Bridge and Asian shoreline from above. I have been here twice and the first time I came here was during the summer when it was really warm and you could sit outside, and then it was amazing. This time I came to Istanbul and Sunset Grill & Bar during the winter months and we sat inside and whilst the view is still amazing the feeling of sitting outside in the hot weather is not there.

Le Gourmet is a Lebanese restaurant located in the Souq Waqif food strip, old part of Doha, Qatar. The restaurant was opened in 2005 and besides Lebanese food also serves international food and is apparently known for its good shisha, which I did not try.

My friend Rob had come and had dinner here on the top of the building, 2nd floor of the restaurant, a few years ago and he really liked it (although said this was one of those restaurants that did not serve alcohol). We had some time in between our meetings in Doha so we decided to stop there for a quick lunch, as we had already spent quite a bit of time in the financial district of Doha and not enough in the souq part.

Mango Mango is a Vietnamese fusion restaurant and a very interesting one, as I had never had Vietnamese fusion food before. Mango Mango is located on the south side of Hoi An and overlooks the Japanese Bridge, one of the things you have to see in Hoi An. The atmosphere is very funky and this restaurant could be in London, they do great cocktails, great fusion dishes but unfortunately this restaurant also does charge somewhat more western prices.

We went to Mango Mango for dinner as I had read about it in my guide book and it was quite close to our hotel and we fancied a break from the typical traditional Vietnamese food. When we arrived we were seated on the outside terrace overlooking the street, which I thought is more interesting, as you can see what is going on, although you can also be seated inside. The whole outside area was full and we took the last table, which shows that this place is quite popular.
