Have you ever wanted to eat your dinner under the sea? Well here is your chance! Restaurant patrons will be able to enjoy their meal in the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant.
The restaurant was recently built in Taranaki. Fitzroy Engineering originally built the restaurant in New Plymouth, but shipped it to the island of Hurawalhi in the Maldives in early March. The structure was sunk into the ocean at its new home in the Maldives.
Its structure consists of glass sides, mostly glass floor, and a curved glass roof that allows the patrons to feel that they are truly surrounded by the ocean and the creatures that live there.
The restaurant’s name is 5.8 since it sits 5.8 meters underwater, and it has been designed for intimacy. There is only space for 10 couples at a time, so if you are planning on going you should definitely make a reservation as far as you can in advance.
The restaurant is pricey, though. A expect around 278USD (382 NZ) for dinner and 150USD (205NZ) for lunch. Although it is pricey, if you love the ocean it might be worth it. Great food with a great friend with the best scenery that nature has to offer, this is definitely a bucket list dinner for every ocean lover.
