“Amazing experience - dont miss it!”
Reviewed December 21, 2010

This restaurant is in total darkness - its amazing. The waiters are all blind or partially sighted and are so helpful, Nico our waiter put us totally at ease and spoke perfect english. The food was good but nothing fancy, and its not cheap (you have to have a fixed 3 or 4 course menu) but this isnt about the food its about the experience, you feel really close to the person you are eating with (smearing mash potato over your other halfs face is always fun!) and you get to chat to the people all around you. Its true that this restaurant really makes you appreciate your sight and how amaing blind people are.

“Really great experience...”
Reviewed May 16, 2009

Really great experience to eat completely in darkness. Friendly staff. But you have to reserve at least 1 month before.

“Tremendous Experience”
Reviewed May 11, 2009

What a wonderful experience! Total darkness. Most relaxing meal I've ever had. Sounds weird, but it's true.

You are led into the pitch black room by your server, hand on shoulder, then seated at your private table. Everything is explained; location of everything, how the meal will progress, etc. All questions answered at the beginning.

Food was very good, but the experience alone was worth the visit. It is a bit pricey, but this is an opportunity that doest not come along everyday.

Only down-side is they do not accept credit cards as advertised. Cash only. No problems, but be aware.

Excellent service was provided by sight-impared servers. Allow plenty of time to enjoy this experience.
