The Most Insane Restaurants in the World
Heart Attack Grill
A somewhat controversial eatery, Heart Attack Grill deliberately serves “food so bad for you it’s shocking”. Emulating a hospital, the waitresses are dressed as nurses who take orders (prescriptions) from the “patients”. A tag is then wrapped around the customer’s wrist with their order which can include anything from a quadruple bypass hamburger to flatliner fries. And oh yea, if you weigh in at over 350 lbs., you eat free.
As one of the world’s most intense restaurants where else would El Diablo be but sitting on the tip of a volcano? And what’s more, when your restaurant is precariously situated over a deep well of lava, who needs to buy an oven? These are all good questions and the owners of this smokin’ hot grill answered correctly when they opened it on top of the Islote de Hilario volcano.
At this restaurant, located a few hours north of Manila in the Philippines, you’ll have the chance to blow off all that steam from a hard days work before sitting down to dinner with your family. The outlet comes in the form of a wall upon which patrons shatter plates, glasses, and even TVs. The best part? You don’t have to worry about cleaning it up.
The 180 year old Kalin Tavern somehow managed to get itself into a bit of a fix. You see, its customers can start their meal in Slovenia, cross the room, and finish it in Croatia (the owner even painted a bright yellow line across the floor to mark the spot). This, of course, wouldn’t be as much of an issue if it weren’t for the fact that Slovenia is in the European Union and Croatia is not. It just puts a bit of strain on their political relationship, which translates into some confusing moments when tipsy Slovenians accidently go out the wrong door and wind up running into the less than impressed Croatian border patrol.

The Robot Couple
For years people in the town of Yiwu, China wondered how the local diner was staffed from 6am to 3am (21 hours) every day by the same couple. Well, it turns out that it wasn’t the same couple. After the story of the “Robot Couple” reached the ears of a journalist from the Today Morning Post he decided to investigate and discovered that it was in fact two couples, a set of twin brothers that had married a set of twin sisters.
The Fortezza Medicea near Pisa, Italy is a 500 year old fortress that presently serves as a maximum security prison…and a classy up-scale restaurant. In order to dine at this popular location guests generally have to book reservations months in advance and then undergo intense security checks by the Italian police. Once inside, they are served by robbers, murderers, mafia members, and even treated to the virtuoso piano skills of Bruno, who is among those doing life for murder.
Dinner in the Sky
This popular chain of Taiwanese restaurants gives patrons the pleasure of eating from a toilet bowl all while seated on a toilet bowl. Drinks are served in small plastic urinals and although one would think that such a restaurant would be a gross mess, it is actually very clean. According to the owner the point is to shock and confuse the senses.
Dalu Robot Restaurant
Patrons at the Dalu Robot Restaurant in Jinan, China are no longer being served by flesh and bone but rather by a robotic army of waiters. Since the change has been implemented there has been a good reaction with customers noting the fact that the robots don’t give you an attitude…and work for free.
This Dutch family restaurant located in Amsterdam is entirely staffed by children (almost). There are a couple of adults who supervise everything but the premise is simple. Part restaurant, part culinary school, and part day care, parents drop their kids off in the morning and then return after work to enjoy what their children put together.

They say that food brings people together, which is true. But now, imagine that instead of eating in the same boring restaurants all the time, when you took your friends out to bond over a meal your dinner would be interrupted by a magnitude 7.8 earthquake. Sounds insane right? Well, that’s because these are the 25 most insane restaurants in the world.
