I was playing a tourist in my home city, when I noticed a bit unusual experience on the list of the rainy day activities in Hotel Union. I was a bit sceptical on the start, because the price is a bit high, but I ended up in complete dark room with one of the most unique experiences I ever had. Food was good, but the flow of the dinner is something else. I would recommend it and I would even say that everybody needs to try it

Once again, a big thanks to crew of 'Dinner in the dark'. The experience was unforgettable. The food was delicious although I have NO clue to what was on my plate. The people around us were great, although I have NO idea who (if anyone) was around, and the restaurant looked... I have NO idea what it looked like. ;)
To sume up; A lot of laughs and great dinner experience. I loved it and recomend it to everyone.

This is more about the experience than about the food. It's great how your other senses, apart from the sight, strengthen in complete dark. It's a very unique experience. The food was nothing special, the soup was somehow burned and the dessert had a taste of being in the fridge for a couple of days before serving. At the end, when we learned what we were eating, we had some additional questions, and the waiter couldn't answer them, because, as he said, he never got the opportunity to try the food he's serving. It's unfortunate that people who serve the food, don't know this experience. Other than that, I would recommend this dinner, it's something you cannot try every day and it will stay in my memory as a good experience.

Dear Kava40,

thanks for sharing your feedback and thank you for your compliments on the experience itself. We're sorry your culinary experience didn't match your expectations. It was an uncommon instance and we promise that we'll fix it instantly.

All of our staff have a special briefing before they start to work on DinnerInTheDark experience and briefing also includes food tasting. However, due to the staff replacements that we had recently, it's true, that few of them are still waiting for the food tasting, which will happen this week.

Please feel free to reach us on info@dinnerinthedark.si with any further comments, concerns, or suggestions you wish to share. We would love to make things better and to get closer to the perfection, that we're aiming for.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your visit. We're happy that we'll stay in your memory as a good thing :)

Best regards,
Kaja
