It's all about the experience (and food is no less!!!)

I loved this whole experience to be in complete darkness! Your senses get much more focused, it was exciting, fun and I noticed we bacame louder! After the first minutes we got used to gently touch everything on the table and be conscious of the space. The staff is very professional and... read more

Great experience. Had no idea what to expect but it's actually worth it. My wife had the house salad and rosette, both very salty. I had the surprise three courses that was excellent. The waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. A truly must try!!!

Unfortunately due to our own fault , called up too late and only entree and dessert was on offer. We decided to go anyway to experience this restaurant as we had always wanted to try the one in Melbourne but seeing that this is the original blinde kuh, we had to pay it a visit. For those who may not... More

Had an exciting experience visiting the Blinde Kuh Restaurant. The receptionist was funny and our blind waitress Rita made us feel safe and comfortable going into the dark restaurant. We tried the lamb chops with red wine and ice for dessert. The lamb was great. Very recommended.

This is a trendsetter venture that is today highly successul. You are served & guided by those who are visually challenged & gives you an insight into their world. You would be surprised at their ability to manage things in perfect harmony where light is absent & its all about sound & taste. You are one with your companion, giving... More

Eating in the dark can be really scary for some people. I didnt feel at ease in the beginning but at the end i really liked this experience. Staff is really nice and helpful to make you feel more comfortable. Food is ok but you dont go there for the food, rather for the experience.

This was such an amazing experience! We ate in complete darkness and were served by waiters who were either blind or visually impaired which made us really appreciate our sight. We ordered the surprise menu and it was delicious and quite expensive, but we were more than happy to pay that for such an incredible experience.

This place is totally dark restaurant!! NO light whatsoever. In fact, you must surrender anything which gives even the hint of light - watches, mobile, etc. Food is served by served by blind and partially vision impaired people. Makes you appreciate the gift of vision, which most of us is taken for granted. The food is fairly general, but the... More

I've been to 'Blinde Kuh' a few times over the years. It's THE experience... if you don't mind not seeing anything you eat. The restaurant is completely pitch black. Once you enter from the foyer, where you're still able to see and order your food, it gets darker and darker until there is absolutely nothing to see. You are guided... More
