Dine underwater in Norway at the restaurant Under, an immersive marine experience that combines delicious food and incredible ambiance.
I swear, just when I think I’ve seen every creative way to eat dinner, someone comes up with a new concept that I have to try. So I guess it’s time to book another trip to Norway so I can experience dining 18 feet under the water’s surface. The restaurant Under is an experience that doesn’t require any dive training, so anyone can go as long as they have the time, money, and, most importantly, a reservation (this isn’t a drop-in kind of restaurant).
Half-sunken into the icy waters of Lindesnes, Under invites you to dine five meters below the surface. The panoramic view of the seabed offers a visual gateway to the sea and connects the guests to the wildlife outside. This provides you with an opportunity to take in the otherwise rarely seen marine ecosystem of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Fresh ingredients and pure, naked flavors are of the utmost importance to us. At the same time, we want to provide an unique dining experience that ushers our guests beyond their comfort zone – Chef Nicolai Ellitsgaard
The restaurant Under celebrates the marine world it exists in. Not only is the restaurant’s design made to merge with the marine world around it eventually, but its ingredients come from the water just outside the window. Every part of Under is meant to celebrate marine life and is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. But be warned, there are limitations. Head Chef Nicolai Ellitsgaard sets the menu with only a few alterations available; there are no vegetarian or vegan options and don’t book a reservation if you have seafood or shellfish-related allergies.
