The Most Proposal-worthy Restaurant Views

By Carolyn Stine August 14, 2019 

Room with a view? Try proposal spot with a view. These are our top 10 breathtaking restaurants the world over in which to pop the question.

Let’s not play, we all have an ideal, dream proposal scenario stored up top in our brains somewhere. Even when we demure and say, “I’ll be happy however it happens.” While wild unicorns and a sky full of hot air balloons may be a stretch, we know that there are many places the world over that are so beautiful, they seem as though they were made to be proposed to at. Well, ladies and gents, this is one article you’re going to want to bookmark and send to your S.O., and ASAP. We rounded up our top ten proposal spots for which the word “scenic” doesn’t do the right amount of justice. Try “breathtaking.” Try “once in a lifetime.” These are the places across the world that you want to be proposed to at.

Manhatta in NYC

Sixty floors up over the Manhattan skyline is a sleek and chic restaurant that epitomizes what it means to be in the city that never sleeps. Whether you’re a New York dweller or in town for a romantic weekend, this is the place that you want to be popping the question. With floor to ceiling windows surrounding a central open kitchen, this French restaurant from Danny Meyer has the most picture-perfect panoramic views of NYC, from the skyscrapers to the bridges, the river, and beyond. It’s classic New York, and it doesn’t get more romantic than that.

Lycabettus Restaurant in Santorini

...Also known as, “the most beautiful balcony in the world.” Located at the Adronis Boutique Hotel in the small town of Oia on Santorini in the Greek islands, this spot would be an ideal proposal spot solely by virtue of its location. However, the views of the endless blue Mediterranean as far as the eye can see, against the background of the white city, are truly breathtaking for your big moment.

Sierra Mar in Big Sur

While on that quintessentially Californian road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway, a stop at the Post Ranch Inn in an absolute must. On the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this beautiful boutique hotel is home to Sierra Mar, their elegant restaurant in what feels like a glass bungalow perched over the sea. There’s no better moment for that big ask than during sunset at Sierra Mar.

Ithaa Undersea Restaurant in the Maldives

Under the Sea… literally. Five meters below the ocean surface lies one of the most mind-numbingly spectacular restaurants one can experience the world over. It is the undersea restaurant at the Conrad Hotel on Rangali Island, and it is truly a place that you will remember visiting for the rest of your lives. And adding a proposal onto that? Well, that just ensures it’s even more unforgettable.


Ristorante Grotta Palazzese in Puglia

Make sure that your epic summer trip through Italy ends in a proposal at this secret grotto restaurant at Grota Palazese in Puglia. The restaurant is built into the side of the cave in a natural grotto that feels like it’s a combination of Capri’s Blue Grotto and The Little Mermaid, and when bedecked with twinkling lights at night, it is a truly special place for that special question to be asked.

Skyline Restaurant in New Zealand

While New Zealand may not be the easiest of locales to get to, it is truly a bucket list vacation for so many of us. And if you happen to be there with your significant other, and it feels like the right moment, than high above Queenstown with a view of the surrounding country is the perfect place to pop the question. We recommend coming here for a drink (champagne, please) at sunset, followed by that big moment.

Le Panoramic Mont Blanc in Chamonix

If a ski holiday with your S.O. is more your style, you’ll want to end up at Le Panoramic Mont Blanc in the mountains of France for apres ski. You’ll be on a gravity-defying terrace overlooking the Mer de Glace glacier, and there’s nothing better than the one-two punch of beautiful setting and perfect proposal after a long day on the slopes.

The Grotto in Thailand

Tucked away beneath an ancient limestone cliff on the edge of picturesque Phranang Beach in Krabi, The Grotto feels straight out of The Beach (sans Leonardo DiCaprio). Your toes will literally be in the sand as you sit nestled in this romantic cove, looking out at the bluest of waters. Take a wander down the beach with your loved one for the perfect setting for a proposal.
