Food + Wine

World's Most Romantic Restaurants

by Lexi Dwyer


Where: Lagoon, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Why Go: Jean-Georges Vongerichten is the only chef bold enough to attempt food worthy of this view, which is the stuff of Polynesian fantasy. Yes, the water really is that blue. And no, the cloud-ringed Mount Otemanu in the distance is not some phony backdrop.

A Side of Atmosphere: With the most indulgent overwater bungalows in the region, a discreet staff, and radiant sunsets, the St. Regis delivers blissful paradise (it suited Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban just fine on their honeymoon).

Appetite for Seduction: Chef Romuald Feger translates Jean-Georges' vision by mixing classic French methods with unfussy Asian accents: Duck à l'orange comes with crystallized tamarind; striped marlin is bathed in a coconut-lemongrass broth.

The Hot Seat: You can see the lagoon from two angles at table 173, the restaurant's most coveted two-seater.
