The idea behind and the concept is great. 3 different menu to choose from and we went for the larger. the experience may be somehow disturbing if you aren't prepared to stay in the dark for a little bit more than a hour. What was disappointing was the quality of the food, we were expecting something more upscale but food... More

Hello, A completely dark tasting can fool a lot. We understand it very well. With the famous "Menus Surprise" that change every three months «Dans le Noir? ». Offers you a unique sensory experience. Do you know that most of our visitors confuse tuna with chicken or duck with veal? Not to mention wines that is a source of constant... More

We were there with my girlfriend. It was a gift and we were very excited to try it. The crew were excellent and the waiters are top. The thing is the food, which is a very low quality, dosen't matter if you can't recognize what is it, you can feel and taste if it' good or not, and for 65€... More

We had dinner here as an evening activity during a training for a team in our company. The experience brought up interesting discussion topics about your system of judgement, adapting and learning, being out of your comfort zone etc. Interesting ánd fun activity for a team! The administration/booking team of Danslenoir was very friendly and helpful. We'll come back!

Good afternoon, A blind tasting dinner can mislead a lot. In this context, it is difficult to evaluate the meals. Our guests, soon find out, that they can be mistaken betweenfish and meet.

I visited the restaurant with my boyfriend and we were both really disappointed with the low quality of the ingredients, of the dishes and of the wine. It is unbelievable that they make you pay 65€ per person and serve you such terrible dishes. I would never recommend this place.

My boss recommended this restaurant and I'm so glad he did. It was a one of a kind experience that left us feeling incredibly humbled. As soon as we walked in we were treated like old friends, everything was explained to us in great detail and we had a drink in no time. I won't say anymore but it's a... More

it is said that you eat first with your eyes and this is probably most noticeable when you find yourself eating in the dark for the first time, it's difficult to say just how the food was prepared and served but it was very tasty. As a vegetarian they were great at making sure I got the right dish. All... More

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.
