EUROPE'S first underwater restaurant opened in Norway with more than 7,000 customers already booked in to eat among the fish.

Situated on the southern-tip of Norway, the restaurant looks like a large concrete tube partly submerged in the North Sea.

It is called Under, which means ''wonder in Norweigian''.

It was designed by a Norwegian architecture firm Snochetta, which also created the Opera house in Oslo and the National September 11 Memorial  Museum in New York.

Snohetta Founder Kjetil Traedal Thorsen told reporters:

''The fascination is just this movement from above water to underwater through the building . The big window exposes the underwater not like an aquarium, it's the real thing.''

Entering   Under   initially feels like going into a sauna, as wooden planks cover its upper section. Then an eight-metre flight of stairs leads down to a large dining area that sits about 40 guests, walled by a gigantic transparent window to the sea. [Courtesy Daily Mail]
