This was our first trip to a Dunkelrestaurant and we were both very excited. The concept and idea is good, and we felt very welcome. Good service (on course is served in the light) and the waiter in the dark was friendly and nice. Never...More

there are may reasons why this is does not work. It sounds great in concept, but the result failed. Eating in the dark. Is this to experience being blind? If yes, then why would someone do it? There was initial laughter abounding, as we had...More

We attended on a Friday night, which is associated with the "horror show." A lot of ground has already been covered, but - the experience of dinner is completely different when you can't see what you're eating. Several reviewers have said the food is no...More

We came here on a recommendation of a friend and with the anticipation of an exciting and amazing sensory experience. We were disappointed. It's a great concept and an experience we'll never forget but it's really let down by the food. It was pretty terrible!...More

I must say it was a very special experience. Dinner in the dark isn't something you do on a regular basis. And we're talking about complete darkness - expect not to see anything for at least 2-2,5 hours. You'll have to pour wine in your...More

So we booked this and then read the very mixed reviews. I can see why. The idea is great and they sell it as "enhance your senses." Well for that to truly happen they need to look at the food they serve. We are not...More

The general idea is nice: eating in complete darkness with blind guides/waiters. There should have ended. The rest was a complete deception: the food was certainly not worth the high pricing, and after eating we had to wait in the dark room, with loads of...More

Found this when looking for somewhere different to go for evening meal and it sounded interesting. On arrival there was slight confusion as the older staff didn't speak english and my german isn't that great but soon sorted when a younger waiter was appointed. The...More

This is really something everyone should do at least once in their life. It was so crazy eating in pitch blackness- it really does make your tastebuds have to work harder to figure out what you are eating without sight! The food was fairly good,...More

Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
