    Default The Hospitalis Restaurant in Riga, Latvia


    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...


    and cookware


    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

    That would gross me out. I find it disgusting and I would have a hard time separating the reality of what I was eating from the fact that it was being served in a bedpan or was prepared to look like a body part.

    I love the fact that you can be fed by skimpy clad nurses while in a straitjacket. That is weird, but I'm somehow appealed by it.
