The Rock Restaurant in Tanzania.

The restaurant, located on a small rock in the Indian Ocean near Michanwi Pingwe Beach, regularly tops the ratings of the most unusual establishments. Clay walls, plank stairs, thatched roof – what can attract visitors here? The answer is simple: a view of the ocean, as well as the need to get there by boat, because the rest is located on a small island. By the way, the building itself from the shore seems miniature, if not tiny, but this is an illusion: up to 40 guests can fit inside.

In summer after sundown, seen from the Mont Blanc refuge. Unusual restaurants.

The name of the mountain peak Aiguille du Midi is translated as “midday peak”, because it is at twelve o’clock in the afternoon that the sun is above its peak (when viewed from Chamonix). But the best view, of course, is not on the peak, located at an altitude of more than 3800 meters, but from it. It is for this reason that tourists from France and other countries go to one of the highest mountain restaurants by cable car.

Langata, Kenya

Unusual restaurants

The restaurant in one of the Kenyan hotels does not offer unique views or unusual dishes, but tourists usually book tables here for a month. The reason is simple: lunch is held in the company of giraffes. The fact is that on the territory of the hotel there is a nursery for breeding Rothschild giraffes – today there are ten individuals. Most of the animals are completely tame and gladly not only look into the windows of the restaurant, but also stick their heads inside the room.
