Fish of the Day, Sir?

Underwater restaurant in Maldives

Check out this fantastic underwater restaurant at the Conrad Maldives Resort & Spa.

Measuring 5m x 9m and seating 14 people, the restaurant sits 5 metres below sea level.

Diners enjoy stunning views of coral, and can watch an endless parade of tropical fish, sting rays and other sea creatures. A bit like a reverse goldfish bowl perhaps?

The $64,000 question – will you be brave enough to order the Fish of the Day, knowing some of your meal’s family could be out there watching???

    Cool! looks like the evil mastermind’s lair in “The Spy Who Loved Me.” I’d be expecting the floor to open up at any second.

    Superman – It’s on a resort island in the Maldives, which is in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sri Lanka. It’s mainly famous for scuba diving.

    I went there in the 80’s (Maldives, not the glass restaurant), unfortunately the restaurant on the island I stayed on was nowhere near as impressive as this one. Still, the company on my table was first class and there were many Tiger Beers to be had by all…

    Roaf – Or the evil mastermind could flick a switch which starts slowly filling the room up with water, then release a rather nasty shark?

    Make sure you check out the other photos on my link as well, especially the ones with sting rays crawling all over the walls.

    Scenes we’d like to see:

    Couple dine at the lovely fish bowl restaurant. Man proposes to Woman. Waiter rushes over with expensive bottle of French Champaign – pops the cork in celebration, cork rushes out of the bottle like a rocket and hits the ceiling, producing a hairline crack in the roof…

  6. clarkebruce says:

    … restaurant fills up with water, diners float towards the roof, struggling for the last bit of air, man holds his new fiance’s head down so he can keep breathing…

  7. Col Gray says:

    …Waiter, determined not to spoil the moment, skulls the bottle of very expensive French Champaign then floats to the surface – pissed, riding the empty Champaign bottle all the way to safety…
