Top 100 Restaurants – Most Impressive Restaurant Interiors

4 years ago

Now plenty of restaurant interiors might be considered ‘interesting’ – but what we’re looking for here is something extra. We hate to say this but, the WOW factor (forgive us, that’s a bit Simon Cowell).

Take Jöro, stacked up in shipping containers, or the roof terrace at Ox Club, the stunning views at The Samling, the Bavarian dance-on-the-tables madness of Albert’s Schloss or the contemporary vibes of Man Behind The Curtain – which looks more like a modern art gallery than a fine dining restaurant.

For some reason or another, walk into one of this lot and you’ll be well impressed way before any food or drink has hit the table…
