World's Top Revolving Restaurants

Thorlakur Ludviksson-Hringbrot

Perlan: Reykjavik, Iceland

Built above a geothermal spring, Perlan serves a practical function—storing the city’s water tanks—and the indulgent one of fine dining in its giant glass dome. Enter, and you’re greeted by sweeping views of the deep-blue ocean and volcanic mountains surrounding Reykjavik. Get your fill of fresh local seafood such as sous vide smoked trout ($20) and, in autumn, a special wild game buffet ($73) of Icelandic delicacies like wild goose, reindeer, and puffin.

Heads Up: Strókur, a geyser right outside the restaurant, can provide quite the mealtime show, shooting white plumes of steam high into the air.
