Berggasthaus Aescher, Schwende, Switzerland

It’s a long and arduous hike or a meandering cable car journey (followed by a shorter hike) up to this 19th-century inn, which clings vertiginously to the side of the Ebenalp mountain in the Appenzell region of the Swiss Alps. Berggasthaus Aescher was built by farmers as a place to rest while their goats grazed. Now it’s a jaw-dropping destination restaurant and guesthouse with views across the valleys to Lake Constance. The food is typical hearty Alpine fare with lots of cheese, eggs and potatoes – much needed for the return journey.

The Eagle’s Nest, Bavaria, Germany

The Eagle’s Nest, or Kehlsteinhaus, was originally a gift for Hitler and, although he didn’t spend much time here, it became a symbol of Nazi rule. It’s now a restaurant serving traditional Bavarian cuisine and, while the website says reservations aren’t required, the sheer effort of the journey means it’s worth calling ahead. Teetering on the edge of Mount Kehlstein in the Bavarian Alps, this engineering marvel is accessed via a wiggly (and at times terrifying) road carved into the mountains, with a brass elevator whisking diners to the restaurant.

Best Restaurant Location

 

Miyamasou, Kyoto, Japan

Around 20 miles (33km) from the nearest city, Kyoto, and reached via a mountain trail, this traditional ryokan (inn) seems to melt into its landscape. Miyamasou, family-owned for four generations, was once a rest stop for pilgrims en route to the Buj┼Ź-ji Temple on the Daihizan mountain. Now it serves what some argue is among the best cuisine in Japan with local delicacies like ayu (freshwater fish) and freshly-foraged ingredients that bring the connection of land and heritage to diners’ plates and chopsticks

Irish Pub, Namche, Nepal

In case anyone fancies a pint of Guinness and a yak burger en route to climb Mount Everest, this is the place. Irish Pub is nestled in the small town of Namche and, at 11,319 feet (3,450m) above sea level, claims to be the highest Irish pub in the world. It must surely be the remotest, and perhaps the only one that specializes in yak meat (the steaks are good too). There are no roads to the town, so visitors (and suppliers) have to trek for two days from Lukla airport to reach the pub.
