A relaxing night out at a favorite restaurant is one of life's great pleasures. But sometimes, a great view is just as important as what's on the menu. At these amazing and unexpected dining destinations, location is everything, whether its a private al fresco cafe lofted in the jungle canopy or an elegant bistro at the bottom of the sea.
