Interesting experience which I think is worth everyone trying, the staff were great especially the waiters! Only downside was the food, it wasnt paticually tasty and certainly not enough of it, for the price you pay its a shame really, good experience tho!

What a fun experience! We laughed alot and had great fun trying to figure out what we were eating and how not to make a mess of ourselves! The servers were funny and sweet and so gentle and accommodating. We loved it.

The concept is unique and gives you an idea of how blind people experience a restaurant vist. But there my positive comment ends. The quality of the food that is presented is just average and not what you could expect from the price setting. Taking into account that there is no menu to chose from and they don't have to spend any effort on decoration or a nice setting (not even a table cloth), the price could be much more democratic. We took the wine arrangement but were offered only 2 glasses (instead of the 3 different ones with option to order an extra that was promised). The waiter was giving more a show than he was paying attention to our needs (was that to enhance the 'being blind feeling'? The main dish consisted of so many different things (all to confuse your senses I guess) and you mix them all up in the dark (you're lucky your fork catches something) so this didn't improve the appreciation of the food either. To summarize: a fun experience but they should do it with less fancy food and for a much more democratic prize.

It is not the cheapest restaurant but really worth it comparing to other restaurant in the city centre. The service was great - special thanks to Jay who was our waiter, he did a great job, the food they were suprising us was excellent, and it is a really unique experience to learn how to eat and drink without seeing anything. So thank you again, and I do recommend this restaurant to everybody!

It smelled like sewage in the waiting area when we arrived at the restaurant. Not a good first impression... The room we ate in was very cold, and we froze during the entire meal.

The meal itself was tasteless. Overcooked food with almost no taste at all. We were a group over 34 people, and hardly any liked the food, and everybody complained about the quality of the food.

The idea is good, but to pay that much just to sit in the dark is criminal. Especially when som many people actually had to spit out theire food because it was so bad.
