From movie sets to molecular gastronomy, hotel restaurants have become about much more than just food. Here’s Expedia’s Listopedia of the world’s best hotel restaurants and why you should be booking your table now.

Roux at the Landau at The Langham, London, UK

Dating back to 1865, the Langham London has been well known to Londoners as a home for high end fine dining. And now the world knows it too – this year the restaurant was immortalised on the silver screen with a starring role in Burnt, the Hollywood blockbuster featuring Bradley Cooper as a Michelin-starred chef on a mission to win his third star. The Langham’s actual restaurant, the Roux at The Landau, was the setting for filming, and in real life is manned by father and son Albert and Michel Roux Jr focusing on modern French cuisine. A meal inside the opulent dining room, lined with beautiful arched windows, is a feast for all the senses.

The Bentley Restaurant and Bar at Radisson Blu Sydney, Sydney, Australia

If you’re after an extra special meal in Sydney, the Bentley Restaurant and Bar inside Radisson Blu Sydney will knock your socks off. The heritage-listed building may date back to 1865 but this restaurant is very, very modern. From the black rod art installations hanging from the ceiling to the crumbs and foams that find their way onto your dinner plate, the Bentley showcases modern dining done well.
