10 Of The Most Insane Restaurants In The World
#1 The Pop-Up Diner
The Italian town of Ferrara recently introduced an interesting concept. For 60 Euros you can buy a dinner for two and then, on the scheduled evening, receive a text disclosing the location of the meal/table, which inevitably will show up somewhere on the historical streets of the town.
#2 Sounds of Silence Diner
The only diner on our list that is located in the middle of the desert, this roofless diner experience takes you into the middle of the Australian Outback right next to Ayers Rock and gives you a view of the starts that you could only dream of.
This Dutch family restaurant located in Amsterdam has a unique concept where the kids prepare the meals. If you not a fan of kids then you are out of luck as kids rule this spot. There are a couple of adults who supervise everything, but the premise is simple.
#4 Modern Toilet Restaurant
This popular chain of Taiwanese restaurants gives patrons the pleasure of eating from a toilet bowl, all while seated on a toilet bowl. Drinks are served in small plastic urinals, and although one would think that such a restaurant would be a gross mess, it’s actually very clean.
#5 Dinner in the Sky
While they’re based in Belgium, this airborne dinner party can be taken anywhere in the world; the company even has partners in 45 different countries. Diners are strapped around a table that is suspended in the air by cranes and served by a small staff that that comes along for the ride.
The Unsicht-Bar, essentially meaning invisible bar in English, is found in Cologne, Germany. There is no light allowed and before patrons are led down into the pitch black dining area by their blind hosts, they must leave behind cell phones, watches, and any other photon emitting electronics.
#7 Fortezza Medicea Restaurant
The Fortezza Medicea near Pisa, Italy, is a 500-year-old fortress that presently serves as a maximum security prison…and a classy up-scale restaurant. In order to dine at this popular location, guests generally have to book reservations months in advance and then undergo intense security checks by the Italian police.
#8 The Safehouse
This is the only restaurant on our list that requires a password to gain entry. Don’t worry though, if you don’t know the password, the guards will just make you do something embarrassing to get in. Why the password? The restaurant is spy themed, as you could probably tell from the name. The next time you are in Milwaukee WI, check out this quirky, dimly lit restaurant.
#9 Dinner in a Gondola
This isn’t the only high altitude eatery on our list, but it is the only one that occupies a gondola. At Stuckli Sky Dining you get to enjoy the Swiss Alps from the four person ski lift while feasting on a four course meal.
#10 Ithaa Undersea Restaurant
Advertised as the world’s first ever undersea restaurant, the Hilton Undersea Resort & Spa opened Ithaa (meaning “pearl”) in the Maldives in 2007. Situated just a couple meters below the surface of the Indian Ocean, it provides amazing panoramic views of the surrounding coral reef.
