One of a kind experience

Very interesting and enjoyable experience. Tasty food, we were extremely sure about what we had eaten and drank only to discover dismal failure at the end. The staff were excellent and very accommodating, special thanks to Marta who professionaly guided us true the dark.

Great experience. Warm greeting by passionate owners. Maite and christophe spent time explaining the concept, making sure everyone was fine. Fun meal with an excellent Jose, caring for all our needs. We even managed to recognize some of the food we were eating :-) An incredible experience

Dans le Noir was a great experience, the staff was really good and we were well received. Our waiter Jose was fantastic and looked after us from the very beginning until then end, and in the dark it was really helpful! My only recommendation would be to shorten the time for dinner but to be honest we took the full... More

What an amazing experience. As with anything that takes you out of your comfort zone, it was a little uneasy at first. To be guided into total darkness where your eyes never adjust, seated in your chair and coached when/where your next course or drink is being served is just a glimpse into how a visually impaired person experiences life....

The food was really good, the wine very nice, our waiter Jose was great and the experience, although rather weird was ok. It could have been much more pleasant if the group of young students sat next to us would have been a little more quiet so we could have actually had a conversation with each other about the restaurant...

Let me start with the positive points: + On top of everything is the experience. If you've never done anything likely, be sure to to it once. As soon as you are in this complete darkness, you get to understand a little bit, how blind persons must live their life. And it is impressive and remarkable how they manage it.... More

This is not a top ten thing to do in Barcelona unless you want to spent vast sums just for the 'experience'. I went to a similar restaurant in Montreal and cannot recall it being this bad...maybe thats as i was with lots of friends and drunk! We booked online in advance. Staff were over friendly and spoke good english.... More

An interesting experience eating in the dark. Not for everyone but if you are looking for something different, this is the place. Nice host speaking english but you will get more out of the visit talking spanish.

I went with friends. Obviously the dining room does not need much atmosphere, since the room is pitch black. My credit is to the staff for managing all of the dining guests and helping us to tables, bathrooms, etc. The food was really good, and the portions were small (something I wish more places had). It is an event, not... More

Are you up for the challenge of experiencing food, communication, and every day navigation without the benefit of your two eyes? If so, you're in good hands. The staff here absolutely prepare you, assist you, guide you, and help you make sense of that experience.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
