Asador Etxebarri restaurant in Spain

Asador Etxebarri in Atxondo in the Spanish Basque Country is among the top 3 best restaurants in Europe. Victor Agruinzoniz’s kitchen is characterized by a minimalist style over an open fire.

Steirereck Restaurant in Austria

Austria is known for its rustic huts and hearty food such as Tiroler Gröstl, Käsespätzle and Wiener Schnitzel. That may be the case in the mountains, but not in Austria’s best restaurant.

A visit to the White Rabbit restaurant in Moscow is worthwhile for the spectacular 360-degree view of the Russian capital.

The scallops from the Orkney Islands in Scotland with truffles, hazelnuts and tangerines are particularly popular here.
