“The food tastes better, down where it’s wetter, take it from me.”

Dive into a new experience at The Pearl — a unique restaurant in Brussels that’s actually 16 feet under the surface of a giant pool. You’ll have to wear scuba gear to get down to the actual dining area, but don’t worry: your food won’t get soggy.

The Pearl is actually an air-tight globular bubble in the middle of the six-and-a-half-foot-wide pool. So you can enjoy your seafood salad, foie gras, and champagne (served in airtight jars by expert scuba divers) without fear.

The experience is a little bit pricey at the equivalent of $106 per person, but it’s probably worth it just to be able to say, “I ate dinner under the sea last night!”

"We are launching a new era of restaurants," John Beernaerts, who founded the NEMO33 pool in the Belgian capital 10 years ago told Reuters.
