My husband and I had a two course lunch. I didn't book because of the food; I booked for the experience. Many meals are offered: dinner, brunch, lunch, chocolate fondue or ice cream. I chose to do a lunch. Why eat in total darkness for...More

Great service with lovely staff. A really good experience. Don’t go purely for the food as it’s not that great but if you’re after some fun and something different try here.

The quality of the food was average but not what you expect for €40. The service was not very personal (I felt like a number) and there was no ambiance: bad acoustics as if we were in a low cellar, loud voices from other tables...More

Great idea, different kind of experience when you dine in completely dark. The process goes like this: You are waiting for your turn till the room gets empty (or your dining hall). During this time someone will come and ask you if you have any...More

It was our first experience eating in the dark. At first mostly funny figuring out how to find everything on the table. Later on also quite tiring trying to use other senses than the sense of sight. Our waiters Jeroen and Werner were great. Funny,...More

Hi thank you for your comment. It is suitable, and our waiters will give a bit more attention to your kid, and try to explain how they work in the dark. A 5 year old might like it, or not. It depends on the child. I would... More
