Welcome to today’s guest post where we have a great post looking at some of the most expensive restaurants in the world. Definitely something to aspire to!
If money were no object, there would be no question of travelling first class to all the most beautiful destinations of the world, sampling dishes concocted by Michelin-starred chefs, while living the high life. Sadly, this is something that many of us could only dream about, wishing that we could someday win the lottery to immediately splurge on all of the greatest luxuries, although realistically we should let the emotional dust settle before we do anything rash with a sizeable jackpot.
But for now, we’re not concerning ourselves with lottery logistics and financial strategies. We’re letting our imagination run wild and giving into services we couldn’t otherwise afford, such as having valet attendants park our car for us while we hop on a shuttle bus for a short ride to the airport, a service which Parking4Less says is commonly offered in European hubs like London Gatwick, Heathrow as well as many of Europe’s other major airports. From there, we’ll spoil ourselves at the executive lounge before sipping on champagne in our reclining airplane seat on the flight to an outrageously pricey city, where we’ll only be dining in world-class establishments.
Here are some of the most expensive establishments to date that we’re dreaming of trying out one day:

These days, restaurateurs are innovating some of the most creative Japanese fusions, but there’s nothing quite as satisfying as the traditional cuisine. Founded back in 1930 by the grandfather of award-winning executive chef Kunio Tokuoka, Kitcho is praised for harmonizing longstanding traditions with modern times. If you ever plan on going on a romantic sushi date in Kyoto, expect to pay around $1,200 for the two of you.
Ibiza is breathtaking especially during the summer months not only for the climate and parties, but also for the virtual dining experience at the Hard Rock Hotel known as Sublimotion. Using food, art, as well as technology to heighten the senses, Michelin-starred chef Paco Roncero has introduced extraordinary dining concepts to guests, from edible entrance tickets to seafood cooked in their own juices. Last summer, dinner set people back by $1,900 per head, making Kitcho look affordable in comparison.
We eat with all our senses, which is exactly what Paul Pairet reminds us with Ultraviolet. A combination of mood music, videos, scents and simulations, the restaurant maintains this soothing aura to enlighten your palate. $625 will get you a 20-course dinner for you and 9 other diners. According to Condé Nast Traveler, the dishes are rotated frequently to prevent any menu spoilers that may possibly appear online.
