The Waterfalls Restaurant, “gives guests a watery thrill, as its bamboo tables are right next to the Labasin Falls, a man-made cascade,” wrote the DailyMail.

Why is the waterfall considered man-made, you ask? Well the falls are actually “run-off from a nearby dam,” according to the news site.

With such a unique setting, you can always leisurely splash away right after you’re done with your food. Actually, guests are soaked in the water the entire time, as you can see in the images.

To get there, you have to drive around 3 hours from Manila. As you arrive in the Villa Escudero Resort, you will have to ride carts pulled by water buffalos to get to the restaurant.

So yes, getting there is an adventure in itself.

The restaurant serves buffet and they offer quite a good selection of local cuisine.

As one Instagram user posted:

“Not many people can say they have dined barefoot in the middle of a waterfall. Well at the Labassin Waterfall in the Phillipines, you can do just that!

Look, no spoons! You’ll have to use your bare hands while eating here.
