The staff were helpful and friendly, the food was served promptly and of the right temperature (I was afraid I would burn my mouth not being able to see how hot the food was but I didn't). It was as they say absolutely pitch black...More

I've been to different "dine in the dark experiences" around Europe. I find this London one to fall a little short, unfortunately. The food is altogether rather uninspiring and the quality is really not worth the actual price of the meal. The menus are very...More

The experience is worth doing. Staff were amazing and respectful. The setting is very interesting. Location was easy to get to. Food wise, I thought it was too expensive for what it was. I had the meat menu, and it was nice but not great....More

I booked Dans Le Noir as a surprise for my friend’s 30th birthday. It was an unforgettable and highly enjoyable experience; I would definitely recommend it. Although at first it is quite a vulnerable feeling to be sat in the pitch black with no concept...More

Really bizarre experience. I felt initially anxious but you soon begin to relax. I love eating with my hands so cracked on every course. Food was lovely. We went for the exotic meats and werent disappointed. Food was really well cooked and 'presented' which is...More

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

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.
