Ithaa Undersea Restaurant – Maldives

Ithaa Undersea Restaurant is located 15 ft below sea level, and of course, it has to be one of the greatest seas in the world, and the Maldives has a good reputation when it comes to that. In Dhivehi, Ithaa means the mother of pearl, which is related to the ocean.
As a visitor, you will be treated up to 6-course seafood dinner while you sit comfortably inside an all-glass tunnel where you can watch stingrays, sharks, and vibrant fish swimming around.

This restaurant makes sure to make your dining experience the most memorable, so they keep everything modern and warm, romantic and chill. And of course, the meals are absolutely the best.
Opaque Santa Monica – CA
Usually, restaurants try to intensify the senses with music, views, or both. But since we are not talking about the usual, Opaque Santa Monica has a different approach: Having dinner in complete darkness…We hope you are not scared of the dark!
Here is the philosophy behind it: As you sit in the darkness, all your visual senses will be taken away, which will increase your other senses, like the taste. It is the restaurant’s way to spoil your taste buds by increasing its strength and giving it some of the greatest meals. However, those meals change daily, so you will always be surprised!
The Redwoods Treehouse – New Zealand
If you love and appreciate nature, then The Redwoods Treehouse is the location for you. It is located in North of Auckland where it allows you to dine while being completely immersed in nature.
However, this a private restaurant that sits 131 ft above the ground and it is only available for groups, which means you and your best friends can have it all and enjoy freely by yourselves (Brides-to-be, take note!).
Once you get there, you will understand why you wouldn’t have anyone else there. That birds-view and the 30 seats are better to be for your loved ones only!
Circus – London
The Circus restaurant and bar is located in London where you will experience a different meaning of watching a show while dining. Basically, the dining room and tables are the expert cabaret performers’ stage.
They would twirl and dance while you have your pan-Asian meal and delicious cocktails. You will definitely appreciate the costumes worn by the performers. So technically, there is no greater way to spend a Saturday night out with your friends.
