At the Hospitalis Restaurant in Riga, Latvia, staff dressed in nurse uniforms serve up a macabre cake topped with realistic-looking body parts such as fingers, noses and tongues...
...and surgeons serve drinks in scientific flasks
If a diner really wants to get into the sickly vibe they can become a 'patient' and have a meal in a stylised operating theatre or trussed up in a straitjacket
The decor is kept as authentic as possible, with white walls and ceilings, a wipe-clean floor with shiny tiles, and walls decorated with polished surgical instruments and medical books
Attention to detail has meant that all the health-related accessories have been supplied by real hospitals and Latvia's Museum of the History of Medicine, including the umbrella stand...
The food is served on stainless steel dishes...
...and eaten with surgical utensils
Hospitalis also boasts a seriously good wine list and cocktails are served in medical beakers and test tubes
The atmosphere could be described as 'sterile' but that is all part of the plan, says restaurant director Marita Bundule
She says: "Hospitalis breaks all generally accepted presumptions about hospitals as a place where various painful manipulations are performed"
"This is a place of surprise, where you can experience things you are usually afraid of with smile on your lips, and enjoy a tasty meal," she continues
