We had a group dinner, and one of our friends made a reservation in Blinde Kuh. I was not familiar with the concept and I must admit it was a bit scary first. However, as soon as we arrived there, the guy at the reception was so nice and welcoming that I even went for the total surprise menu. This... More

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this place from the moment you walk inside the pitch black dining room, the food was good and the service was good aswell. Don't hesitate on getting your hands dirty since its quite difficult to eat in the dark, all in all I recommend this place.

A great experience to enjoy as a couple. 6 months down the road, I frankly remember more the experience than the actual meal. The (only) drawback was the loud table next to us. Otherwise food was good, yet as you imagine quite challenging to eat. We will remember our experience there.

Total dark, you dont know what are you eating, but the idea and opportunity to feel equal to blind people are fenomenal. Personnaly after this unique experince i started to question myself how this people live their lives. Fenomenal idea, would reccommend it to everybody, food is not so important but impression, ambient and idea are breathetaking. Must experience!!!!

Make your reservation in advance. When you get there you will get a brief explanation how everything is arranged, there is a menu on the wall, so you need to decide what you will order. There is also a surprise menu, which consist of 3 courses. I would say it is more interesting experience not to know what you are... More

What an amazing experience. Our group of 3 were seated at our own table and had a lots of fun & the food was ok too. It was very easy to use a knife & fork for the first mouthful but as the food was moved around the plate each forkful got increasingly harder to find. ( I had several... More

Although the evening did not start out too well - for some reason they cancelled our reservation, and we also had to wait for more than half an hour to enter - it was still the most unique dinner I had in my life. You are guided to your table by your waiter, and once you pass through an intermediary... More

If you are ever travelling to Zurich, Switzerland, book in advance, and make sure you experience the Blinde Kuh. This is a very unique experience, and one that teaches you a thing or two about your senses. Staff are very friendly. Best experienced with friends, or in a Group.

My second visit here. It is a truly strange experience but a very valuable life experience at the same time. Food is tasty, no points for presentation as you are blind. This visit was with an overseas friend and just being two of us was not as much of an experience as my previous visit when we were a group... More
