The restaurant made for two …

TRAVELLING is always a gastronomical adventure, but if you really want to challenge your taste buds, go for these more extreme dining experiences uncovered by Go Euro. From alien bars to romantic restaurants just for two, here are four of the most peculiar restaurants in Europe:

Solo Per Due – Vacone, Italy: Meaning Just for Two, this restaurant is exactly as it sounds. What could well be the smallest restaurant in the world provides nothing more than a table for two. When dinner is finished the lights are dimmed, transporting its guests back in time and making it the perfect place for a romantic date. The waiters can be summoned with a silver bell when required. The walls of the restaurant are said to come from the Roman villa of the poet Horace. In addition to the mosaic floors and arched doorways, the Fonte Bandalusia, a natural spring is not too far from the ancient ruins.

H.R. Giger Museum Bar – Gruyères, Switzerland: This was designed by the Swiss artist, H.R. Giger. Its bio-mechanic aesthetic mirrors the design used by Giger in the production of the Alien film series. Whether you’re in the mood for a spooky date, a relaxing afternoon or simply looking to marvel at the unique architecture, this bar is the perfect destination for an unforgettable experience.

Marsden Grotto – Marsden, South Shields, England: Known by locals as the Grotto, this fine dining restaurant has an average exterior, but dig a little deeper and you'll find that it's anything but conventional. From hardened sea smugglers to quarrelsome ghosts, this cool spot carved in the cliffs is steeped in history. The sheer, zigzagging staircase outside, and interior cave were blasted out by Jack the Blaster, a miner who used the cave as a base for his smuggling schemes. If the rumours of haunting don't spook you too much, head to this well-loved, albeit bizarre restaurant for deliciously fresh seafood.

Espai Sucre – Barcelona, Spain: Appetisers and main courses are so passé. Why not skip straight to dessert? Espai Sucre in Barcelona offers a selection of just desserts… no seriously, just desserts. Famous not only for its cooking courses, the restaurant has six different and uniquely exciting menus. The smaller menu offers a small chocolate cream coffee, lemon cress and mint kefir. There is also a chocolate menu and cheese menu each consisting of three desserts.
