The best al fresco dining spots across the Collection

The hum of chatter and clinking cutlery – these are the terraces on which you'll want to while away those long, balmy summer afternoons.


Dunne & Crescenzi at Kildare Village

With over 25 years in the restaurant industry, Dunne & Crescenzi prides itself on quality ingredients, authentic Italian hospitality and excellent Italian wines. And, as golden hour falls, its warmly lit terrace at Kildare Village is the perfect place to unwind over delicious dishes.

WE LOVE: The antipasto misto plate for two, complete with Tuscan charcuterie, Asiago cheese, marinated olives, courgette, bruschetta and sourdough bread.



Menu Palais at La Vallée Village

Stroll into Menu Palais and soak up an atmosphere evocative of Parisian artist ateliers, with inspiration from Mini Palais, the renowned restaurant in Paris’ Grand Palais. The innovative menu is designed by chef Stéphane d’Aboville and offers a variety of delectable dishes, perfect to relax over. On balmy days, choose a spot by the retractable windows and surround yourself with the curation of fine sculptures and engravings, or find a seat en plein air on the flagstone-paved terrace.

WE LOVE: The latest selection of desserts. Pistachio tiramisu, strawberry rhubarb tartlet and Saint Honoré are just some of the top dishes to try.



farmshop restaurant & cafe at Bicester Village

Whether you’re chasing the early morning birdsong or looking forward to an evening sunset (with a cocktail in hand), Soho House’s farmshop restaurant & cafe offers all-weather seating that’s perfect for al fresco season. Located on the second floor of the restaurant, embrace the great British summertime and gather family and friends for hearty farmhouse fare.

WE LOVE: Softly poached eggs on chargrilled sourdough. Buttermilk pancakes topped with mixed berries and drizzled in sticky maple syrup. Sweet or savoury, you’ll find your fix here.



La Piazza at Wertheim Village

After a long morning’s shopping, seek out the open-air terrace at La Piazza, set within the picturesque surroundings of Wertheim Village. With a famiglia feel, the Italian restaurant is a favourite for homemade regional dishes and ever-changing daily specials, each infused with notes from the Mediterranean.

WE LOVE: The selection of delicate seasonal dishes, as well as the signature La Piazza pizza with rocket, Parma ham and parmesan.



Le Petit Belge at Maasmechelen Village

Find the al fresco terrace of this welcoming brasserie along the leafy boulevard of Maasmechelen Village. The menu is simple and satisfying; a fresh take on Belgian fare. For a breakfast option, try the traditional pistolet, or spend an evening watching the light change as hearty dishes arrive and the lilt of soft voices carries in the warm air.

WE LOVE: The artisanal grey shrimp and cheese croquettes. With so many pleasing starters to pick from, the “I can’t choose” platter will sate your culinary curiosity.



All-weather terraces at Fidenza Village

When the temperatures start to heat up – or perhaps, you’re in need of a rain-safe table to take shelter at – Fidenza Village’s terraces are just the spot. Located at the Parma Menù and Signorvino restaurants, you’ll find retractable windows and shaded roofing for all-year-round weatherproofing. Ideal for relaxing over a plate of authentic Italian fare…

WE LOVE: Booking an early evening table to watch the sunset with a crisp glass of vino. Or, gathering friends for a long lunch before an afternoon spent browsing the boutiques.



Cristina Oria at Las Rozas Village

On sun-soaked days, the terrace at Cristina Oria offers the perfect excuse for a restorative interlude while shopping. Take shade under the signature striped canopy, breathe in the scent of fresh flowers and sample the restaurant’s renowned dishes, which draw on the best of local and seasonal flavours.

WE LOVE: The famous mi cuit foie, a recipient of the 2011 Madrid Fusión award, served with raisin and walnut bread – best enjoyed with a glass of sweet white wine.



Indochine at Ingolstadt Village

Fragrant, healthy dishes take centre stage for the founder of Indochine, whose family established the first Vietnamese restaurant in Munich. The expansive terrace, set under a series of crisp white canopies, provides ample space to enjoy the restaurant’s carefully curated menu. Expect elevated Vietnamese classics, from fresh summer rolls to flavourful salads.

WE LOVE: Wander by during Thursday’s Happy Hour, from 5 pm – 9 pm, for the signature Indochine Spritz of Prosecco, lychee juice, sparkling water, lime and mint.



Atmósferas Mordisco at La Roca Village

Under a cool bamboo awning and surrounded by lush botanicals, the Atmósferas Mordisco terrace offers an oasis to unwind and replenish. The vibrant, optimistic culture of ‘80s Barcelona forms the inspiration for the all-day kitchen and the restaurant’s philosophy of connecting around a table. You’ll find a variety of thoughtfully sourced and seasonal dishes packed with Mediterranean influences.

WE LOVE: Settling into a slower pace of life and savouring a paella of beef loin and confit mushrooms with loved ones.


La Roca Village’s sun-drenched terraces

Come summer, La Roca Village’s restaurant terraces are the place to be for delightful company, sunshine and fabulous fare.
