The Ultimate Restaurant Guide for Private Jet Travelers combines memorable views, great dining, and time-saving convenience
For private jet users, their planes are time machines, giving them back valuable hours every time they fly. Recognizing that even when they are on the ground, business aircraft fliers are often trying to maximize their time, our sister publication, DG Amazing Experiences, a weekly travel e-newsletter for private jet owners, and Private Jet Card Comparisons, have combined to put together a restaurant guide specifically designed for those of you who are often up in the air.
These high-floor restaurants have spectacular views, amazing dining experiences, and they are all located in hotels, so you will be only an elevator away from your suite, saving you time

Private jets are time machines, saving users hours and days that would have otherwise been spent waiting on commercial airline flights, making connections or sitting around airports.
Developed in partnership with DG Amazing Experiences, our weekly e-newsletter for private jet owners, The Ultimate Restaurant Guide for Private Jet Travelers provides you with a curated list of 144 great dining venues with amazing high-floor vistas that are also timesavers, because they are located in your hotel.
When you are on a tight schedule, don’t navigate city traffic, just head upstairs. With views of the pyramids at Giza, the Eiffel Tower, Acropolis, the lights of Hollywood, the Royal Palace in Tokyo, or Sydney’s Opera House, your suite is just an elevator ride away, so bon appetit!

To compile this list I used my own travels, extensively researched various lists and articles about top restaurants filtering out the ones that didn’t meet my criteria, and I had lots of help from experts in dining out while traveling.
Among many, particular thanks to Andrew Collins (CEO of Sentient Jet), Mark Dardenne (CEO and Luxury Hotel Developer), Jack Ezon (CEO of Embark Beyond), Thomas Flohr (Chairman of Vista Global), Patrick Gallagher (President of NetJets), Mary Gostelow (Editor of Gostelow Report), Michael Holtz (CEO of Smart Flyer), David Lowy (President of Renshaw Travel), James McBride (CEO and Luxury Hotel Developer), Deepak Ohri (CEO of lebua Hotels & Resorts), Kenn Ricci (Chairman of Directional Aviation), Juliana Saad (Award-winning Brazil-based journalist), Ted Teng (former CEO of The Leading Hotels of the World), Lindsey Ueberroth (CEO of Preferred Hotels), and Jamie Walker (CEO of Jet Linx Aviation with his base teams across the U.S.), who each used their extensive travels and local knowledge.
The listing is not a ranking, Restaurants are listed A to Z divided by region.
