Europe’s First Underwater Restaurant Is Being Built Off the Norwegian Coast



If you’ve ever dreamed of dining under the sea, you may soon get your chance. Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta recently announced their involvement with Under, Europe’s first underwater restaurant. The new dining destination will be located on the southern coast of Norway, close to the village of Båly.

Space itself is a tribute to the Norwegian coast. And with such close proximity to nature, the restaurant will also serve as a marine life research center. We’ve seen underwater hotels and underwater museums in more tropical climates. But Under is a unique opportunity to peer below the surface of the icy Nordic waters.

Half-sunken into the sea, the structure’s 3.2-feet thick walls shield patrons from pressure changes and will stand up to the rugged waters.

This is aimed at drawing people below the surface for a greater appreciation of the underwater world. Fittingly, the word “under” has a dual meaning in Norwegian, as it can also translate to signify “wonder.”
