There is a giant grill that's housed over one of the dormant volcano's openings. The food is cooked using the heat from an actual volcano.
The architects who designed it, Eduardo Caceres and Jesus Soto, laid nine layers of basalt rock to insulate the restaurant over the volcano's heat, according to Atlas Obscura.
The last time there was any real activity from the volcano was back in 1824, so your meal should more likely than not be a tame experience.
But there's more reason to make the trek than for the food. El Diablo has stunning views of the island's Timanfaya National Park.
