You can tell a lot about a hotel by its restaurant.

The service, the attention to detail, the produce, and the atmosphere all serve as an extension of a property, so it’s no coincidence some of the greatest hotels in the world are home to some of the greatest restaurants too.

Hoteliers seek out the most creative chefs to offer their guests a spectacularly unique aspect to their time in the hotel, whether a Michelin-starred fine-dining experience or an avant-garde niche eatery. One thing is for sure: dinner will be something to remember.

These are the best hotel restaurants in the world.

Grandiose Grub

Twin Farms

Location: Barnard, Vermont
Price: $2,600+
Vibe: All-inclusive paradise 
The rundown: Regularly finding itself at the top of lists like “Best hotel for foodies in the US” and “Best all-inclusive hotel in the US,” Twin Farms requires you to forget everything you understand about all-in packages. There are no seedy-looking buffets or throw-together food here.

Guests in the luxury cottages are privy to stunning breakfasts, picnics in the Vermont countryside, and world-class farm-to-table fare every evening of their stay, as well as a selection of cocktails, fine wine, beer, and spirits. You’ll never forget a visit here.

Mandarin Oriental Tokyo

Location: Tokyo, Japan
Price: $800+ 
Vibe: Molecular luxury
The rundown: Like Four Seasons, the Mandarin Oriental brand has a reputation that speaks for itself. But its Tokyo property might just have the most unique eatery out there: the Tapas Molecule Bar.

Seating just eight people at a time, the intimate experience is a fusion of art and food. Chef Kento Ushikubo studied art before moving into the culinary field and even referred to dishes as pieces in his art gallery. The tasting menu of small “tapas” plates is spectacular, if nothing else—but it’s almost a guarantee the taste will blow you away, too.

Mid-Ranged but Michelin-Starred

L’Enclume

Location: Cumbria, UK
Price: $300+
Vibe: Exquisite English escape 
The rundown: Nestled in the impossibly picturesque Lake District in the North of England, L’Enclume is the passion project of British chef Simon Rogan. While its cozy cottage accommodations are lovely in themselves, it’s the 3-Michelin-starred restaurant that steals the show.

The seasonal menu shifts based on the property’s private farm, local producers, and foraged items, but guests can expect a whopping 15-course tasting menu, whatever happens. The dishes are a wonder to look at and taste and impart an unrivaled experience in the Lake District.

Fleur De Loire

Location: Blois, France
Price: $200+
Vibe: A taste of France
The rundown: Lauded French chef Christophe Hay only opened Fleur de Loire last year, but he’s already garnered two Michelin stars for the in-house (and self-named) restaurant.

Housed in a historic hospital building on the banks of the River Loire—the beating heart of the Loire Valley and surrounding wine region—the restaurant holds a strict policy of serving produce only found within a mile of the banks of the river. Writer Steven can confirm the 9-course tasting menu was sublime, with the locally sourced Wagyu beef stealing the show. Splash on the wine pairing. It’s France, after all. The experience has the added performance of French service, and each course is served by the chef who made it.

Four Seasons New Orleans

Location: New Orleans, LA 
Price $297+  
Vibe: Double trouble
The rundown: Four Seasons properties are generally regarded as a safe bet for a bite, but few can boast not one but two restaurants led by James Beard award-winning chefs. First up is Miss River, an ode to southern cuisine headed up by Israeli chef Alon Shaya. Expect high-end iterations of all the classics.

On the other side of the hotel is Chemin a la Mer, a crossover cuisine exploring the cultural links between Louisiana and fine French cuisine. Both are memorable in their own right, and both are worthy of ensuring you have two nights at the Four Seasons instead of one.

Wallet-Friendly Fare

Hotel Figueroa – Unbound Collection by Hyatt

Location: Downtown Los Angeles
Price: $146+
Vibe: Variety is the spice of life 
The rundown: Hotel Figueroa is cool. It’s a simple word, but it’s the best one to use if you ever find yourself sitting in the effortlessly stylish lobby bar before grabbing a bite at one of its four restaurants.

While this list is designed to revolve around one restaurant, Figueroa’s Italian, Mexican, and casual cafe all turn the heads of locals and tourists. Combine that with a highly reasonable room rate, a fascinating history as a women’s only hotel, and a prime downtown location, and the Figueroa is a winner in every respect.
