Below the sea, in the air, or in a prison, restaurants are going to extremes to attract attention.

Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives

1 of 12

The Weird Factor: Jacques Cousteau meets Blue Water Grill at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island’s Ithaa, the world’s first aquarium-style underwater restaurant, set 16 feet below the surface of the Indian Ocean between a lagoon and coral reef. Those lucky enough to score one of the dozen seats can dine with the fishes, surrounded by clear acrylic and 180-degree, below-water views. Reached by a wooden walkway from the nearby over-water Sunset Grill, the five-million-dollar restaurant serves a four-course contemporary fusion Maldivian menu—and the live sea creatures that come to check you out rival anything on your plate.

Dish to Try: Maldivian lobster carpaccio, reef fish tartare, and poached quail egg with passion fruit dressing.
