Imagine having the opportunity to dine in a restaurant where all of the wonders and creatures of the ocean swim by. We decided to create the 10 Most Intoxicating Underwater Restaurants to highlight some of the greatest aquatic dining experiences you could ever have in your life. These restaurants are both in exotic locations and others that you might not have even known existed.
Most of these aquatic dining experiences find the guest in a room that is constructed with glass or other durable clear materials that allow you to see all of the creatures swimming by you. It’s a pretty magical looking experience and could be the closest thing to dining in the lost city of Atlantis. It opens your imagination and makes you feel like you are a part of the aquatic life that engulfs you during your visit. It can also be a scary experience, especially if there is a big shark staring at you as you consume your meal. In our list we start with a couple of restaurants that aren’t directly underwater but give you the same effect and also allows you to dine with underwater creatures. Check out our 10 Most Intoxicating Underwater Restaurants below.
