“Woow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

This was something everybody should try...... GREAT food. Lovely service. And you try something that you never had tried before. And eye opener as we sat on Danish.

“it seems to have lost its appeal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

it's a great one off experience but I don't know of anyone who went for a second time. For many it seems just the novelty factor when it is a clever and unusual way of being made aware of people dealing with diasability. I have only given this an average as it endlessly promoted through Groupon.For the time of my visit I would have given it 4/5

“Problem With Gluten Intolerance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We had a nice experience it was totally dark and the food was fine, but too expencive for what we got.
Our son is allergic to gluten. They promised us to make a glutenfree menu, but the pasta they served was 100% normal whith weat and gluten. Aferwards he had a bad stomach. This is not ok when we made a fonecall to chek before we went.

I would prefer to eat another place.

“Mad experience but dont expect value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Hard to be critical when it is such an insane experience - knew people who had been here before but nothing can prepare you from the experience - its just surreal - in truth i ate most of my meal with my hands but you'll understand if you go! On the downside we were waiting a long long time after our reservation time and in that period a lot of people just walked out in frustration. Given we were on holidays and it had been recommended we decided to wait it out. The other negative is the price - you really do pay for the experience cos it sure as hell isnt for the quality of food or wine - if youre in Berlin i think you have to go just to satisfy your curiosity

“Pitch black restaurant :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

I've always wanted to try this pitch black restaurant, not able to see your food and having to trust every sense of your body besides the sight you rely on every day.

We all met in the bar, giggeling and laghting, nervous too what to expect. Our waiter, a very nice blind man met us and talked about what was going to happen. We also got to choose from the menu before going in. But the dishes where quite secret. We choose between:

1 vegetarian,
2 beef,
3 river and sea
4 poultry and
5 surprise
And he also Asker us about allergies.
Then he grabbed our hands like Mary Poppins, and we walked slowly after eachother behind a dark carpet, deeper and deeper into the emptiness.. Well... Empty it was not, we could hear many people takling in different languages, laughing and having a good time.

When we got to the table we all started talking to eachother, tuching eachother and needed to "see" if there was anybody there. If the people stopped talking you felt so alone.
When the drinks came we had to pour it ourselves not knowing when the glass was full :-) kino of an interresting small problem. When we got to the dinner, just trying to cut things on the plate was even harder.. And you did not know what was on your plate, and where it was :-) trying to work out the cutlery was an olympic sport, and some admittet they ate their veggies with their hand. The interresting part came actually to the food... Have you seen Gordon Ramsay's blind testing his chefs, lagughing because they can't taste the difference between fish and chocolate? Well, the same thing happened here. We could not distinguish the different things we had on our dinnerplate, understanding why the secret menu is so important. You could sometimes recognize the taste and the texture, but couldent for all in the world remember what it was.
Then someone said, hey guys... "What if I have to go to the bathroom." And we all laught, knowing that we are so greatfull to be able to see in our everyday life.

The reason why it does not get a full pot is the quality of the food. For the price I payed and also the main attraction of eating I would have hoped to intrigue my taste buds more than so.All in all it was really fun, and I do recommand everyone to go here. Both coulpes, families and friends. For the single persons just remember that you will feel very alone.
