If you’re looking for a unique sensory experience, Dans le Noir? will change your perspective of fine dining by serving you stunning gourmet food in complete darkness. You’ll be waited on by a visually impaired waiter and encouraged to socialise with other guests in the pitch black on sharing tables. This intimate and unique experience is certain to challenge everything you thought you knew about dining.
 
Iris, Public Relations Officer for Dans le Noir?, told us more about the incredible sensory experience.
 
“Dans Le Noir? restaurant is a one-of-a-kind role reversal, where our guests experience fine dining in pitch darkness, guided by visually impaired staff. While you are deprived of sight, your other senses take over and accompany you through an amazing sensory experience.
 
“Our guests get to choose the main component of their meal: meat, seafood or veggies. For the rest, they will have to trust our chef. Of course, we take into consideration any dietary requirements (allergies, preferences). We also offer our concept as a form of team building; wine, beer, cheese tasting and even kids’ tasting.”
