Went there for an experience and that was what we got. The neighborhood in which the restaurant is placed is kind of seedy, but once you enter the restaurant it very nice and cosy. You start with a drink while you decide which of the basic menu's you want. Then you are followed into the pitch dark basement where a... More

Once in a life time experience. We went to a total black restaurant, got our drinks and dinner without knowing what we ate. We could't see the other guests but only hear them. It was a bit scary but in a cool way and we got to experience what's it's like to be blind. It gave us something to think... More

We went to Dunkel Restaurant as a group of 26 friends and were very fortunate that they were able to reserve us a booking for such a large number. They were able to accomodate us during the first slot on a Sunday so as not to distube other patrons which was fair enough. We had 3 days in Berlin and... More

First things first: when they say dark, they mean it. It is not dim lighting, nor do your eyes adjust to it. At all. The entire meal is eaten in pitch-black darkness that is so complete you cannot even see your hands in front of your face. The sounds of clatter and other diners talking and laughing made it very...

That was dinner what i will remember always! Go there for experience but dont expect extremely good food. I was satisfied with salad and dessert but fish was terrible.

Certainly this restaurant is all about experience. You get to the restaurant & order your food & 1st drink in the light, now you can either chose a listed menu or go for the surprise- we thought we'd go for the surprise. Our waiter came to us, his name was Halie. We were told to put our hands on the... More

We visited the restaurant with some of our German friends, it was an experience eating in total, and I mean total darkness and gives you an idea of what it is like to be blind. Fun experience, but not cheap. Food was ok, nothing special, and you do struggle to identify what you are eating due to the loss of... More

The second time there there is no more surprise, only unfulfilled expectations. The experience of eating in absolute, complete dark is worthwhile trying but, one must not forget that the fundamental reason to be there is food, not to develop bat abilities anew.

I was in the restaurant with my friend. We have ordered 3 dishes (soup, main course, dessert). In the restaurant you cannot see anything. Waiter showed us and explained everything, where we have a soup, bread, spoon etc... Food was good, but nothing special for that price. We payed 75 euro for two person.

I guess there has to be a lot of people who like this place. Since its in a few travelersbooks and newspaper articles. But for me, it was the worst restaurant experience ever! Not the food, not the restaurant it self and the consept. But the lack of good service. We had been told it was no problem if not... More
