An unforgettable experience

If someone asked me whether they should visit the restaurant, I can't help but say - "you have to." What an amazing concept, so unique and creative. These are the kinds of ideas we need in this day and age, instead of 'cool' spray-painted cafes .. It's an experience for all ages, and in a sense... read more

There are plenty of control freaks out there and you may be one of them. It's okay. You can admit it. But if you do belong to that control freak "tribe" this is not the place for you because you will, in fact, be giving up total control. You will not know where you are seated, you will not know...

On arrival, you have a brief intro from the (sighted) receptionist, to the experience which awaits you, and you choose the sort of menu you'd like, listing foods you don't like or to which you have an allergy. You then have to abandon your handbags, phones and jackets (in a secure locker), wash your hands - very important, as we... More

My Mom and I visited Dans le Noir while we were in Paris this past spring, and we both loved it! They explain how everything works up front, and then they lead you in. I enjoyed the experience of eating in the dark and trying to figure out what the food was! It's amazing what you start to notice about... More

Visited this place in Russia, Saint-Petersburg (Sokos Solo Palace Bridge Hotel). Was really interesting, great time, great cuisine and wonderful service. Thanks to hostess Tatiana, she was lovely! It costs high enough but it's an adventure everyone must try.

We visited Dans on Saturday night 25/7/15. We were greeted by a nice chap, who explained the way the evening was going to go. We were met by our waiter for the evening a chap called Yemen. It was complete darkness, the quality of the experience, the food and level of service was be second to none. 100% recommend

An amazing experience. My husband and our teenage son and daughter had a fantastic meal out. We found we enjoyed each others company and worked together to explore and try and understand the taste and texture sensations. Not like anything we've ever experienced or could imagine. The waiting staff were so patient with our attempts (or lack) at French and... More

After entering the bar area, we were immediately greeted by very welcoming staff. They took our orders then we met our waiter, Tidienne, who was very helpful and patient as he navigated us through the dark. At first we were suprirsed by how incredibly dark it was, really pitch black. But soon we got used to it and enjoyed working... More

I went for lunch alone and I must say that it is one of the most unique experiences! Initially there is a sense of panic, but it goes away once u allow yourself to settle. Only issue was that I had asked for a veg meal and I was served fish (it seems fish is considered veg in France!). They... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
