RESTAURANTS & BARS
Indulge in culinary delight and a vibrant nightlife
Restaurants in Seoul have earned high praises from locals, tourists and food critics alike for inventive culinary flavours. The city offers an extensive array of international delicacies from soups, fresh seafood, vegetarian dishes, steaks, noodles and rice dishes to fine-dining. This list consists of recommendations for restaurants, bars and nightlife for visitors to explore during their time in Seoul.
Since restaurants in Seoul get very popular on weeknights and weekends, visitors should reserve a minimum of 2-3 days in advance. Unless online reservations are in place, most restaurants only accept reservations with Korean numbers via call so you may ask your hotel concierge to make the reservation on your behalf. For higher-end restaurants that are difficult to reserve, we recommend checking them out for weekday lunch with much better deals. Visitors may have to queue for certain, more casual but popular restaurants that are not reservable.
