Skip the typical touristy joints on your trip to Seoul, Korea and head to this gorgeous aquarium café for an unforgettable dining experience you won’t soon forget! While we have our very own aquarium dining experience in Singapore at the Ocean Restaurant in Sentosa, Korea’s Aqua Garden Café & Aquarium is truly one-of-a-kind.

Located in Lotte World Tower, the beautiful aquarium café lets you dine with front-row views of aquariums filled with exotic marine life—all without the extra aquarium entrance fees! The café not only features regular aquariums, they are also an “aqua garden”, so you’ll also find lush greenery and trees decorating the space.
Seating is placed right next to fish tanks, and even the tables and chairs used are clear (much like the aquarium glass) so you’ll feel as if you’re really underwater, immersed amongst the sea life! There are also different kind of fish tanks in the café, so you can choose the kind of aquarium dining you’d like to experience. After you’re done eating/drinking, you can also walk around the café and explore the rest of their larger tanks—just like you would when visiting an actual aquarium!
