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

As you arrive you pre-order your meal. I went with a group of 4 friends and as we entered the restaurant you expect to have a table on your own, but we were swiftly seated next to some people already enjoying their evening. Speaking to the man seated next to me, he said, I looked lovely, we all laughed and... More

It was a surreal experience, you expect your eyes to adjust to the darkness but even after two hours there it's still pitch black. Definitely something to try at least once. The food was good and they even adapted the dish for a food allergy. I would recommend to try the surprise menu as it's fun to guess what you're... More

This is the kind of experience YOU MUST DO ONCE IN YOUR LIFE to realize that you do belong to the lucky people who can 'see' !!! Whispering, analysing all sounds around you in the darkness, tasting food without seeing it and recognizing all elements. The only weak point is the food quality/price ratio as here it can be seriously... More

This evening was great fun, indeed. Sitting in complete darkness (I couldn't see my hands right before my eyes), having good and funny talks, enjoying delicious food (I had the menue surprise) and being served nicely, an amazing experience. I managed not to destroy glasses or dishes and my shirt was still ok. You get a slight impression of what... More

Two nights ago I had my first dinner at a Blinde Kuh restaurant. The idea of eating a meal in complete darkness was quite nerve racking but it turned out to be one of the most amazing experiences to have. The staff is extremely friendly, efficient, funny and helpful. The food, even if it is never seen, was very tasty... More

I recommend a dinner at the restaurant "Blinde Kuh". When you enter the building (an old chapel), you may put your personal belongings as mobile phones or watches that shine in the dark into a locker. Now you decide the meal and drinks. We took the Menue Surprise for CHF 72.- per person. A blind waiter / waitress now leads... More
