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

Seemed scary, at first. We entered a beautiful traditional Swiss house (lovely garden in front). The menu was listed on the wall, and a nice receptionist explained us what the procedure is. We got introduced to our waitor, Attila, and he took us to, well, dark room. What happened there was amazing: a wholle lotta good food combined with whole... More

i heard a lot about this restaurant and wanted to go there for years. i just got the opportunity and booked a table for 2, knowing we would possibly share our table. At the entrance of the hotel there is the weekly menu listed, plus there is a piece of paper with a daily menu. Also you have the possibility... More

If you are looking for a restaurant that serves gourmet food you can stop reading as this is no such place. If you are out for an extraordinary experience then this is it. I find it very unique and special to be led and guided by blind waiters. Staff is charming and helpful. To sum it up: an eye opener!

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
