I would recommend this restaurant to anyone desiring a different meal--because that is exactly what this place does--it puts you into a completely different mindset. I suggest getting a reservation by emailing them through the website. First, when you arrive, you choose how many courses/drinks you want and you tell them of any allergies--this is all you get to decide. Next, you meet your waiter, walk into complete darkness, and sit down. You are with a group of other people if you are only two or three people. This would be so much fun with a group of 6 or so friends! After that, you are given your plates and drinks and not told what they are. When you are finished everything, you return to the waiting area and you get to guess what you ate and then they explain what you had to eat/drink. You will be surprised! While I did not enjoy all the food, this restaurant was worth the price (quite steep) because of the experience.

Unforgettable. Be prepare to eat in complete and absolut darkness. They will first received you in a lobby where they will explain you the experience. There you have to choose the menu (it doesn't mean you are going to choose what you will eat, you choose what you'll pay) you do have to specify (and they'll ask you) if you are allergic to any kind of substance or food. I recommend to have the whole experience, all the dishes and the three glasses of wine so later, when the experience is over, you can try to guess if they were red, pink or white (you will be surprised).

You're waiter is going to be a blind person, that means, once you are inside the restaurant area (into the dark) the blind become your eyes and you are the one who needs them to help you get to your table and sit.

It's like entering into a new dimension. You can't see your food, you don't know what you are been served, so you don't know how to use the fork or knife. You may finally end up eating with your hands. The food is good, and in my case, while eating, and since the experience is so new and sensorial, I always had this urge to make sure my plate was already empty, it was like I didn't want to missed anything. An incredible experience.

First thing you do after dinner is go to the restrooms and wash your hands. After that they will gather you (with the other guests) and let you try to guess what you just had for dinner, it is very fun, specially when it comes to the part of guessing the wine, good luck with that!!

A completely recommended food, sensorial and how they say, a human experience.

Concept is eating in complete darkness served by blind waiters. Very unusual and you really appreciate the difference in eating food and seeing food.
You are shown photos of the food afterwards and are asked what you thought you were eating
Dislikes
On the night the ladies toilet was out of order, no loo paper in the disabled loo!

Yesterday I went to this restaurant to celebrate my partner´s birthday. My eyes at that place for the 2 “very short hours” were provided by Jose. It´s an amazing place and it was an unique experience. Apart from the personal experience the food was fresh and the wine was ok. I advise everyone to visit “Dans le Noir” at least one time in his/her live. The guides-waiters will learn you their everyday world. You will be able to experience in few hours (became minutes because the pleasant moment) what they feel every day. They “borrow” their experiences and it is up to the visitor to enjoy it or not. Those people stole our hearts and fuelled our senses. I will come back for sure to Dans Le Noir ? in Barcelona with more people and I hope to visit in June the one in San Petersburg together with my colleagues.
