Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant, Kenya

Ali Barbour's Cave in Kenya is thought to be 180,000 years old, but it was just 30 years ago that a restaurant opened about 30 feet underground. Natural holes within the cave give diners a view up to the sky and provide (along with all the candlelight) an enchanting, romantic atmosphere.

Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant, which is on Diani Beach, specializes in seafood and steak and gets rave reviews all around, from food to service to atmosphere. TripAdvisor reviewers call it a unique, amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience, but also quite pricey.
