We had a corporate lunch in the daylight.. They decor is Spartan and uninviting. It was chilly and not very comfortable. The toilets were absolutely appalling. Extremely smelly with sticky floors. The smell eminated to the eating area! I couldn't wait to leave.

Wonderful experience to eat in the dark, and a privilege to meet our delightful waitress Anisia. The food is excellent, we ordered the surprise menu - they tell you afterwards what it was. The most memorable meal I've ever had.

Eat in the dark. Experience pleasure in its most intense form as you rely on only four of your senses. Can you tell the difference between the red wine and the white? Can you manoeuvre your fork to your lips? Our darkroom professionals will guide you safely through this culinary adventure. We also provides entertainment in a new light. From nail-biting thrillers to sizzling-hot concerts - the tingle factor is always part of the programme. If you listen in the dark, you hear more intensely. blindekuh is one of the largest private-sector employers for people with impaired vision. In our restaurants and through our cultural activities, we create valuable jobs, foster dialogue between sighted people and those with visual impairments, and open up new perspectives for young and old alike. blindekuh - the name means "Blind Man's Buff" in German - was founded in 1999 and was the first establishment of its kind in the world. Our businesses are sponsored by the Blind-Liecht Foundation.
