With foodies looking for more expansive ways to enjoy a good meal, there is good reason why restaurants are creating a new experience coined “pop-up dining”. Forget about the fancy indoor restaurants because this post boasts astonishing locations that will change your dining perspective. The trend of pop-up luxurious dining spots is guaranteed to impress diners. Whether it be in the forest, in a tent, at the beach, on top of mountains or by the cliff, an extravagant yet relaxing private candle lit dinner is on the rise!
Here are the most intriguing places that offers the best new way to dine – from the snowy field of Austria to Sahara Desert in Morocco:

Get cozy in an Arabian-style rug complemented with soft and warm fur blankets, pillows, candles and a small bonfire set up in the snowy meadows. Top if off with some Austrian luxurious Champagne and treats. This romantic picnic in the snow is an epic dining experience!
Domaine Des Etangs – Forest BBQ, France
Enjoy a supernatural outdoor BBQ and wine in the forest – a menu of luscious meat and vegetables grilled in an open fire prepared by Michelin star Chef Fabien Beaufour. Can’t get any more dreamy than this!
Baros Maldives – Pop-up sandbank restaurant, The Maldives
Baros Maldives stepped their pop-up restaurant game by taking guests by boat to the sandbank.
