Savour traditional gourmet dishes at Moss and take your taste buds on a culinary journey of Iceland with cuisine made from the finest and freshest ingredients. Take in the jaw-dropping vistas of the Blue Lagoon’s volcanic horizon in the comfort of this stunning restaurant with décor inspired by the surrounding elements and sip wine from the unique lava cellar, which has been frozen since 1226. The restaurant is located within the luxurious Retreat hotel, and if you’re feeling extravagant, why not splurge on the ever-changing seven-course tasting menu which comes with wines expertly paired with each course.
Tapas and wine are in abundance in the beautiful Spanish city of Barcelona and it can be a feat in itself trying to find the best spot in town to enjoy the local cuisine. Perfect for food and wine lovers, why not try a tour where you can visit several different establishments in one night to taste various tapas dishes and wines. This way you can choose your favourite for your next evening out.
“The food is always a highlight on any of my trips, so I wasn’t disappointed with all that Barcelona has to offer. With so many restaurants to choose from, the best way to experience the most authentic ones is on a wine and tapas tour. Of the places we visited, I can highly recommend Bastaix in El Born. It serves rustic Spanish food - plenty of it, and it’s very reasonable. I went back on a separate visit during my trip. The Sangria was amazing too and the restaurant was in a very authentic surrounding.”

Choose from one of the three themed domes – Bohemian, Scandinavian or Lounge style, and enjoy a delectable dinner for up to eight guests. Dine in the surrounds of the lush edible garden and enjoy a premium nine-course menu served communal style with a bottle of wine included. The domes are truly a magical private dining experience and allow you to dine under the stars in balmy Singapore.
Gorgeous Sorrento is the perfect blend of sunshine, scenery and delicious food. Learn how to create an authentic Italian-style pizza with guidance from a professional Pizzaiolo using the freshest ingredients. After you’ve created your masterpiece, you’ll be able to enjoy it along with a glass of crisp Italian wine on a sun-soaked terrace.
Book a bed at Amsterdam’s famous Supperclub, take your shoes off, recline on the crisp white linens and enjoy a fantastic five-course dinner complete with live entertainment. Marvel at the spectacle unfolding in front of your eyes as you savour delicious risotto, steak tartare and coconut crumble, and sip bespoke cocktail creations throughout the immersive Supperclub experience.
“Whilst a well-known staple of Amsterdam’s food and drink scene, Supperclub still manages to hold on to an air of mysterious glamour. The entrance is via an unmarked door in an unremarkable side street, but once inside you know you're somewhere different. The fine dining menu is served to you on a food tray whilst you lay on communal beds and the entertainment ranges from anything to the sensual to the truly impressive. It’s a unique experience that I haven't had anywhere else.”
