16 feet below sea level, in the Maldives, Ithaa Undersea Restaurant offers 180-degree panoramic views under the sea.

It's so magical that The Daily Meal voted it the world's "Most Beautiful" Restaurant in 2014.

Take a peek inside the restaurant:

Since then, some other underwater options have popped up just down the beach.

Sea at Anantara Kihavah Villas, also in the Maldives, claims to be first underwater restaurant and wine cellar.

Then there's Subsix, the world's first underwater nightclub. It's 20 feet below the Indian Ocean surface and only accessible by boat.

Other underwater options outside of the Maldives? We only found above ground restaurants with big aquariums.
