Aside from the amazing ambiance, the food at Under is worthy of a detour. The Head Chef is Nicolai Ellitsgaard, who was formerly at Måltid in Kristiansand (Norway) and Henne Kirkeby Kro in Denmark.

The menu focuses on creating a fine dining experience based on high quality, locally-sourced produce, with an emphasis on sustainable wildlife capture. It was 17 courses and lasted 5 hours. There’s an educational angle too: an attempt to inform diners about the abundance of unexpected edible life in this part of the world. For example, take the tiny green shore crab that he serves with chamomile and seaweed. Normally, they’re caught by children in buckets and thrown back but this by-catch and waste is actually delicious.

As we stepped foot into the restaurant, our unique undersea journey began. Down inside, the notion of an "ocean view" takes on a whole new meaning. A huge 36 x 13-foot panoramic window takes center stage into the bustling life in the sea outside. By the end of the night, there were hundreds of fish swirling around in front of us. Truly a sight to behold!

Norway is home to Europe’s first and the world’s largest underwater restaurant that just opened several months ago. With a reservation secured, we made the long trip to Under, a one-of-a-kind destination restaurant in Lindesnes, the southern tip of the country. When we first arrived, the structure had a remarkable architectural gem feeling to it. It is designed to fully integrate into its marine environment over time, as the roughness of the concrete shell will function as an artificial reef, welcoming limpets and kelp to inhabit it.
