The world of fine dining is luxurious and forward-thinking. Restaurants across the globe are pushing the limits of what a dining experience can achieve, and now a new restaurant hopes to put Norway on the map when it comes to the world of fine dining. Under is Europe’s first underwater restaurant, and the largest of its kind in the world.
It’s a marvel both inside and out, so before you book a table (the waiting list has thousands of names), explore Under with this brand new gallery.
The restaurant is located in Lindesnes, Norway. The building was designed by architecture firm Snøhetta, who polished every single detail. The building resembles a rock formation that rises out of the sea. Under promises to put Southern Norway on the map, at least in the world of food.
The restaurant has seating capacity for 100 guests. However, normal nights host 40. Under is also the first underwater restaurant in Europe. The restaurant is located in the rough waters of the Skagerrak strait.
As you can see, the building is half-sunken into the sea, and rests directly on the seabed. It’s intended to integrate into the environment. The concrete walls can withstand water pressure and impact from towering waves. Under‘s panoramic window lets you into the world of underwater marine life.
So, what’s there to eat? Head chef Nicolai Ellitsgaard Pedersen helps prepare the delicious dishes. Dishes are made up of local ingredients, like fish, shells, sea rocket, and salty sea kale. The restaurant also serves up seabirds and even wild sheep.
