Norway Has Just Opened The Largest Underwater Restaurant With Views Of Marine Life

Global |

This structure and restaurant is a first and one of the most incredible places on earth to dine and enjoy the ocean views underwater.

This half-sunken underwater restaurant is the largest eating establishment and is now open for customers. Under offers a maximum seating capacity of 100 and is the creation of world-famous architect Kjetil Trædal Thorsen. After so many years of anticipation, customers are starting to make reservations at this restaurant, but we want to know what makes it so special?

The extraordinary structure offers diners an enormous panoramic view of the ocean and marine life. The seating area is underwater and offers dim lighting making the diners’ experience incredibly memorable. During storms, diners can get a close-up experience of what goes on below the turbulent surface.

The house specialty offers a wonderful selection of fresh and natural foods. You will have plenty of seafood in an array of dishes along with poultry and other choices. The menu varies from season to season and the availability of ingredients. Thanks to their head chef, customers can participate in multi-course meals and offers a choice of wine or juice.


The structure is much stronger than it appears from outside. The spectacular shifting of cool lighting is a feast for both your stomach and eyes. The ceilings, interior walls, tables, and chairs are made from warm earthy wood. The color patterns offer a unique, alluring appeal.

The Sunset Ceiling Under is Europe’s first underwater restaurant and built on a slant so customers can enter the foyer before heading down to the dining room. According to Thorsen, the wooden ceilings in that section of the structure has an iridescent pattern to look like a sunset. This pattern was chosen because Under is similar to a bridge between the sea and land. The building was painstakingly designed without any detrimental impact on the surrounding marine habitat.

The exterior concrete of the structure should function as an artificial reef and haven for sea creatures to make homes.

Under also plans to keep their doors open to researchers who want to observe marine life through the spectacular windows.

If you want an amazing evening on the town, you should book a reservation at Under. You will be in awe watching sea creatures float by in an array of brilliant colors and almost feel like you are siting in a fishbowl!
