Under restaurant holds steady as the waves crash nearby photo by Ivar Kvaal

Under restaurant is a bold new experiment

Bathed in a blue halo, the carved chairs and table sit next to a large, transparent window. The serenity of the room is only punctuated by the soft, lapping sounds of the shimmering water outside of the North Atlantic.

A unique, marine-inspired experience garnished with a bold cuisine

Bathed in a blue halo, the carved chairs and table sit next to a large, transparent window. The serenity of the room is only punctuated by the soft, lapping sounds of the shimmering water outside of the North Atlantic. Welcome to Under… Europe’s largest restaurant that sits below the sea surface in Lindesnes.

To call Under just a restaurant is an oversimplification, a near injustice. It is an experience that treats guests to the many marvels of the Norwegian marine system; a rare glimpse of the icy North Atlantic Sea. A space where fresh seafood spiced with bold flavours offer a new-age cuisine.

The unique dining experience is thoughtfully complemented by the interior décor that recreates the minimalist majesty of the ocean. An oak-clad foyer welcomes guests as they transition from the hard land surface to the soft underbelly of the sea with textile-clad panels greeting them on the descending stairway.

Inside the restaurant, large acrylic windows open to a mesmerising view of the icy blue waters. The interior creates a warm ambience with wood-panelled walls and turquoise motifs. Under pays homage to the vibrant marine ecosystem with a unique restaurant experience. under.no
