My husband and I went on a date night to "The Blind Cow" and it was a unique dining experience. I really enjoyed it, mostly because it allowed me to relate better to a blind friend of mine. My husband, on the other hand, didn't feel as comfortable in the room. We chose the "Surprise 3 course menu," and the... More

We look to book a table for ages, as we were coming from lugano and having only weekends available. Finally we did it. I think we book in January to get a table in April for 4 people ( ok, I'm a date that for us all). The experience is amazing, but the service extremely slow. We order the drinks... More

Dear alix550 Thank you very much for the ​review and for coming all the way from Lugano to experience an evening at the blindekuh. Since we are not a regular restaurant, and neither is our service team, the entire experience needs a little bit more time and patience. As you mentioned it yourself, the waiting time is usually at the... More

Dined here during a short stay in Zürich and was not disappointed by the experience. The premise of the restaurant is that you are to dine as if you were blind. When you walk into the restaurant the staff has you lock up all your belongings (no cheating with a cell phone light during your meal!) in a locker, which... More

As soon as we heard about this restaurant, it was a must visit. We had never experienced anything like this before and it was brilliant, if uneasy at times. First of all, you must book - it seems to be fully booked all of the time so try to reserve a table in advance. You then need to put all... More

I went along with my colleagues, we were around 10 people and we had reserved a table. The reception is bright and they briefly explain you about how things work and tell you about the menu. Then the waitress (who was blind) asked us to make a chain and lead us through 3 thick curtains and the place was pitch... More

We wanted to eat dinner here for the experience of understanding a little about the difficulties faced by blind people. We certainly found the experience to be eye-opening. The restaurant is pitch black dark. You can't see anything at all, not even your own hand. The only time I've been in a place as dark as Blinde Kuh was when... More

Me, my sister and our father went here to eat just for fun, really. How often do you get to eat in pitch black room?? The food is rather average, I would never pay that much if it wasn't for the whole experience the visit gave us. The first minutes is a bit intense since you can't see ANYTHING, but... More
