Europe's first underwater restaurant is also the world's largest. Under opened in Lindesnes, Norway on March 20 as a restaurant which also functions as a research center for marine life. New York and Oslo-based architecture firm Snøhetta revealed their plans for the sub-aquatic structure back in 2017.

Now, Under (which translates to both “below” and “wonder” in Norwegian) is officially open for business and research. In a dining room protected by half-meter thick concrete walls, the restaurant can seat up to 35-40 dinner guests every night.

Its culinary focus is to create a fine dining experience based on high quality, locally-sourced produce, with a special emphasis on sustainable wildlife capture. Diners can literally look out into the sea as they sample some of Europe's best dishes. Danish chef, Nicolai Ellitsgaard heads up the international 16-person kitchen.

Both the menu and the world-class ambiance make for an incredible dining experience that's rapidly becoming a culinary destination. Browse through the images above to see why.
