At the end of March the first underwater restaurant in Europe called 'Under' opened on the rugged coastline of Norway. The special restaurant is therefore the first of its kind in Europe and is also immediately the largest restaurant in the world that is under water Impressive.
The restaurant looks like a tilted ship and is no less than 5.5 meters below sea level Under was designed by Snøhetta, an architectural firm from Norway, and architect Arne Marthinsen found it a challenge to place the restaurant in such a place, where the sea and the weather can be quite rough.
Fortunately, marine life was also taken into account when designing the cool building. Thanks to the concrete exterior of "Under" the reef and kelp will grow here at some point, making the restaurant part of the ecosystem again.
The building looks rather frightening and industrial from the outside. Appearances are deceiving, because the restaurant is warm and cozy on the inside. Beautiful wooden furniture and the blue light from the sea ensure that you never really want to leave here.

Eating at Under
The huge building has room for no less than a hundred guests and what you are served during such an evening is not bad (and also not cheap).
It is of course no surprise that there is mainly a lot of fish on the restaurant's menu, but do not think of a 'simple' oyster. Because the menu of Danish chef Nicolai Ellitsgaard has been carefully compiled. The products mainly come from local farmers, fishermen and hunters.
