"No shirt, no shoes, no service" doesn't necessarily apply at the Villa Escudero Resort restaurant in the Philippines. Set at the foot of a waterfall, diners are invited to not only enjoy the sights that come with the natural splendor that is the Labasin Falls, but they're asked to pop off their shoes and wade into the crystal clear water to get to their table. Needless to say, it's a unique experience.

It may not be the most romantic restaurant in the world; that being said, this is the kind of experience that would be brought up at family reunions for years to come. The natural noise of rushing water may make it hard to hold a conversation, but who needs small talk when you've dinner with a view like this?
