Fancy! is an upper-class restaurant located in Bikini Bottom. It first appears in the episode "Krusty Love."



It looks like a giant ship-in-a-bottle. There is a yellow ramp, most likely meant for handicapped individuals. It also has a giant sign at the top that says "Fancy!" in red on it. The restaurant is presumably on the opposite end of town from the Krusty Krab, seeing as Mr. Krabs mentions it being "some place far away."

There are cushioned seats alongside tables and a reception area, as well as a long kitchen which can withstand many chefs. There is also a stage on which a human pianist in scuba gear plays music on the piano.

Role in series

"Krusty Love"

Mr. Krabs and Mrs. Puff go on a date at this restaurant. When a bill of $100 comes his way, Mr. Krabs complains, claiming the bill was a mistake. When the bill turns out to be someone else's, Krabs is given his actual bill, which adds up to a total of $100,000. Krabs screams at the top of his lungs, shattering the giant glass bottle encasing the restaurant.

"Chocolate with Nuts"

SpongeBob, Patrick, Incidental 87, and her mother go to this restaurant. Using the massive profits SpongeBob and Patrick acquired by selling chocolate bars to Incidental 6, they book out the whole restaurant just to dine there, ruining Squidward's only night to be fancy.

"Le Big Switch"

SpongeBob works at this restaurant as an "exchange chef." Since SpongeBob has a passion for making Krabby Patties, they are the only thing he is able to cook, and the upper-class diners at Fancy! unexpectedly love them.

By the time the chef exchange program is over, the Krusty Krab had gone bankrupt, but SpongeBob arrives back just in time, bringing back the Krusty Krab's customers and the newly Krabby Patty-enamored socialites who used to dine at Fancy!. The main chef of Fancy!, Mr. Le Schnook Luigi, debuts in this episode.

"SpongeBob LongPants"

SpongeBob gets a job at this restaurant because of his long pants. He impresses some fancy fish and calls himself "SpongeRobert."

"Married to Money"

"My Two Krabses"

Mr. Krabs and Mrs. Puff plans to go on a date at this restaurant, but Chum Krabs dates her instead.

"Kooky Cooks"
