Dont go for the food. Maybe its beacuse I couldnt see it, or didnt know what it was, but the food itself was a little boring. However, the whole experience of eating in the complete dark is 'eye opening'. The food looks to be pre-prepared...More

Very friendly staff, very helpful, beautiful vegan food, quite expensive but well worth the experience, you become very mindful of each mouth full and mindful of the environment. Loved it and will go again :-)

Nearby
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

As far as I know they only have big tables (8+ people), but the dark still makes it a surprisingly romantic setting. My girlfriend and I sat next to another couple and chatted most with each other and occasionally to them... More

Description
Located in trendy Clerkenwell, the novel concept behind Dans le Noir is to re-think the notion of taste by serving your food in complete pitch darkness. The eclectic menu is designed to maximise such heightened sensory awareness; instead of listed dishes, there are surprise menus with omissions to suit different tastes (such as vegetarian). Blind staff serve and guide diners in the main restaurant, with a lit bar and lounge for ordering and pre- or post-dinner cocktails.
