Going out to eat isn't just about the food. It's about the whole experience, and a big part of that is the restaurant's design. While a beautifully designed space can certainly enhance your enjoyment of a meal, the restaurants we're talking about today go beyond even that, with weird, wild and outlandish designs that perhaps overshadow even the food itself, for an experience you won't soon forget.

This restaurant where patrons dine with their feet in the water (spotted on Twisted Sifter) is a real place in the Philippines. The waterfall is actually the spillway from a dam, but that doesn't keep patrons from dipping their toes (and sometimes their whole bodies) in it. The waterfall restaurant is located at the Villa Escudero Resort, and is only open for lunch. Flip-flops recommended.

The Bangalore Express restaurant in London features six of these incredibly unique, and perhaps a little terrifying, two-story booths. Apparently they're quite popular with customers, although there's no word on how waiters actually get food up there. See more on Design Boom.

The River Cafe at the Saklikent Gorge Club in Turkey has seating that hovers above a river that runs through the bottom of the namesake gorge, one of the deepest in the world. I'm sure the food is delicious, but it might not be able to compete with the view. Image by travel blogger Polkadot Passport, via her Instagram.

Eating at this booth at the Odessa Restaurant in Kiev is a little bit like having dinner inside a macrame wall hanging. The rest of the decor is definitely worth checking out as well.

The Grotta Palazzese Restaurant, spotted on Trendland, has the distinction of being located in a cave, on a cliff, overlooking the Adriatic Sea. The restaurant is only open during the summer months, so make your reservations soon.
