We had a great time dining in the dark. The introduction, dinner and discussion after were really interesting. Our waiter Damba was making us feel at ease. To try at least once!

This experience was different from anything you will ever do in your life. It was a tad pricey but worth the money. The quality of the food is great and the experience is just unique. Something that can't be described but only experienced!

If you are planning for a Friday or Saturday dinner plan tables at two weeks. If that's during week days a few days before should be fine.

I have gluten sensitivity and I told the staff. They warned that the desert contains some gluten but I went for it. If you are celiac, you may miss on parts of the meal, but still the experience is worth it.
