spires, is the Tower Top restaurant of Emerson &
Green Hotel. The Tower Top Restaurant lies high among
the minarets, temple towers, and church spires. It is
undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary eating venues
in the world. Located on the roof of the building, it
makes guests feel as if they're on top of the world
as they sip exotic drinks and watch the sun disappear
into the Indian Ocean. The Muslim call to prayer accents
the eastern setting of Arab-style pillows and small
tables and the Hindu Temple chimes remind visitors that

A typical menu for the Prix Fixe meal consists of appetizers
of local vegetables, seafood and small canapés,
a soup or salad, a main course of fish or chicken with
vegetables and spice scented rice and, finally, dessert
with tea or coffee and after dinner drinks. Vegetarians
can easily be accommodated, with prior notice to the
chef. As you leave the restaurant, be sure to look up
