Maybe you had dinner under the Eiffel tower in Paris, a fancy meal in a hot air balloon, or dined in the most expensive restaurant in the world. Now don’t get us wrong, they all sound quite amazing, romantic and even unique — these experiences might seem a little but crazy to some, they seem quite normal when compared to others. Here are 15 of the craziest restaurants on the planet!
Twin Stars Diner
You don’t have to be a twin to dine in this eatery, you just can’t work there – unless, of course, you are a twin.
Located in Moscow, this 24-hour restaurant only hires identical twins – waitresses, bartenders even the chefs will have you seeing double. Seems like a fun place to dine, until its time to tip right?

Talk about cat lovers paradise. This cat cafe is located in Tokyo, and allows you to enjoy your meal while being surrounded by a variety of different cats.

The sky restaurant originated in Belgium, but has since gained popularity, and is now offered in cities around the world including Canada.
The concept of this restaurant involves guests being securely strapped in dining chairs and being hoisted 160 feet in the air by a crane. They are then treated to a delicious meal in the sky.
Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant
As if the name wasn’t crazy enough, the aim of this restaurant is to promote sexual health with dinner. The first one started in Bangkok and has since branched out to the UK in an effort to spread the word about family planning and public health.
Throughout the restaurant, there are life-sized mannequins dressed up in themed outfits made from condoms. When your bill arrives, it is accompanied by either condoms, or a pamphlet about sexual health.
Heart Attack Grill

The name says it all — The Clinic is a restaurant based in Singapore that actually simulates a hospital.
The chefs ‘operate’ in an open demo kitchen under the glow of operating room lights, while meals are served on stainless steel surgical tables. Their signature dish, Dashi soup, is served from a syringe while guests are seated in wheelchairs and other hospital furniture.
The restaurant, known as Dans Le Noir, in London offers the chance to dine blind – in complete darkness!
Diners are given a surprise menu which comes in four colors and themes: green means vegetarian; red means no seafood; blue means no meat and white is for normal.
After choosing, guests are guided to their tables by waiters equipped with night-view binoculars. Cellphones, flashlights and watches not allowed. Diners can only tell what they are eating by relying on their sense of smell and taste.
Other blind – dining venues can be found across the globe including locations at Paris, Moscow , Berlin and the US.
Don’t panic, you are not actually served human body parts in this Japanese restaurant. However, they do serve food which is made to look like a woman’s body.

Alcatraz E.R Restaurant
Be warned, this eatery is not for the squeamish; and not for the prudish either. Not only does this Tokyo restaurant look like a scene from a horror film which takes place in some sort of madhouse, but it is also PG rated.
While some customers are handcuffed to their tables and served liquid nourishment through IV bags, others are served by scantily clad waitresses dressed up as nurses, with their assets on full display!
