It was na uncanny yet thrilling and amusing experience. We were introduced to our blind waitress Alicia and for one hour and a half could have a taste of how life is for those deprived of vision. The meal was tasty but overall the drinks were expensive and not surprising. I recommend not to demand any cocktail, alcoholic or not,... More

An amazing experience at all levels. The food was very interesting, the deserts were absolutely gorgeous, the sounds, space and touch took a whole new meaning. I felt a very deep connection with my partner dans le noir.

Service was good, however it was a bit crowdy when we arrived, so we have to wait for about 15 minutes after our scheduled time. It was quite cold in the room where we were actually having dinner, be warned. My girlfriend and I have visited another Dans le noir in St. Petersburg, Russia, and overall impression was much better... More

We ate at 1pm on a Sunday at Dans Le Noir ? The experience was like nothing I have ever had before. If your looking for something a little different to do, I would highly recommend. The food is good, not incredible, but definitely good. You sit with other people, but you can only tell because you can hear them,... More

It's an amazing experience to go to a restaurant in the total darkness and to dive into the world of blind people. It makes you ponder about just how important our sense of vision is to us and how some people have to live without it. But (a big BUUUUUUT) the food is terrible! I just read other negative reviews...

Hello, First, thank you for your comment. We care very much about all our client and we take into consideration your remarks. About the food, the appreciation of a degustation in the complete dark can be confusing. We totally understand it. However our “surprise menus” which change every two months offer a unique sensorial experience. Our chef only work with... More

At the first time I was really scared. I've never in my life felt such a fully darkness - I couldn't even see outlines of my hand waving in 10 cm in front of my face. What is about food, we tried to guess what we were eating. It was interesting to compare our tasting feelings with the menu afterwards.... More

This is an experience that should not be missed unless you are scared of the dark, crowds or enclosed spaces as the noice of others and pitch black can be a little oppressive. My wife and I however loved the experience. The food is good and the service is helpful, just remember if you eat fast and they haven't been... More

So, what can i say about that, it was quite unusual to eat something when you do not see that, but we did it, sure I do not have any photos because it was not allowed)

좋은 경험은 될 수 있으나 음식 맛은 그리 좋지 않아요. 웨이터들은 모두 영어에 능숙하고 좋지만 플로어가 다소 산만합니다. 입장 손님과 퇴장 손님이 섞여서인 듯 합니다. 입장하면 눈이 보이지 않아 촉각과 후각, 청각 미각이 모두 예민해지는데 문제는 음식이 맛이 없습니다. 제가 먹은 건 트러플 오일을 첨가한 호박 수프와 연어가 포함된 메인, 디저트 등이었는데 (3접시 코스) 맛 없어요. 양은 무지 많은데 이거... More

Nothing more than unique French cuisine. Never regret relishing the atmosphere and the perfect restaurant staff. When in France and especially in Paris - do as French do. You will keep a long happy memo!!!!!

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
