Would You Reserve a $400 Meal at an Undersea Restaurant?

Americans spend $3,000 annually on take-out and in restaurants and usually on unimaginative, rote dining options.

If you could eat out extravagantly and fantastically once this year, would you?

How about a $430, locally sourced gourmet seafood meal? A meal that you can eat in the largest submerged restaurant in Norway?

“Under” is the premier underwater restaurant in Norway and in Europe. It opened for business in March 2019.

The restaurant has barely been open for six months and yet its already won a coveted spot on Time’s list of “World’s Greatest Places 2019.”

Under is located in Båly, a Norwegian coastal village situated in the southernmost region of the country called Lindesnes.

New perspective

The restaurant aesthetically resembles a large concrete tube-like construct that is partially submerged about 18 feet underwater. Under is 110-feet long, has three levels, and more than 5,300 square feet of space.

Architect Kjetil Trædal Thorsen said, via press release, that he wanted patrons to enjoy a dining experience from a new aquatic vantage point.

“In this building, you may find yourself under water, over the seabed, between land and sea. This will offer you new perspectives and ways of seeing the world, both beyond and beneath the waterline,” said Thorsen.

Under seats up to 40 guests, offers a seasonal menu, and features 36 x 13-foot windows with stunning panoramic views of the local sea life. The seasonal menu regularly features lobster, mussels, cod, and a kind of seaweed with a truffle-like flavor, truffle kelp.

If this sounds more interesting and appetizing than a hamburger at Red Robin, then make sure to plan ahead. A reservation at Under usually involves a six-month wait.
