Huge full-wall aquariums have become increasingly popular attractions in fine dining, and recently the trend has moved downward as restaurants around the world have been built completely under water. Joining such luxurious undersea dining establishments as the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant in the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort and the Subsix Restaurant at the Niyama Resort twenty feet below the surface of the Indian Ocean, the Under Restaurant, situated on the southernmost coast of Norway, will be the first of its kind in Europe!

Designed by international architectural firm Snøhetta, the restaurant begins above ground at the tidal pools where customers are led down below the waves to the Champagne Bar before dropping down to the lowest level sitting on the sea floor at 16 ½ feet (5m).

The Under has massive 3′ (1m) concrete walls and heavy-duty acrylic windows to keep up to 100 guests dry as Danish chef Nicolai Ellitsgaard Pedersen provides locally sourced seafood dishes as amazing as the scenery in the dining area.
