    Our waiter Sam was one of the nicest waiter there was. He gave us great insights to our questions around blindness and about his past. Being in the complete dark puts you in the same playing field and suddenly it’s as if you were taking to a friend at night! The experience was wonderful and the service was exceptional, we would recommend everyone to go there.

    Fantastic experience, recommend once in a lifetime. You are gently guided to experience food and humanity like you never do everyday. For once you are the one who needs to trust someone else blindly and you will never regret it. Not telling everything, don't want to spoil the fun.

    Hi Davide, Thank you very much for your comment from the entire Dans le Noir ? Madrid team. It is very important for us that all the people who pass through here understand the concept and it seems that you got it perfectly!

    Something everyone should experience. I think it would be interesting to come here on a first date! But equally as fun to come with a big group of friends. I dined with my boyfriend for his 30th Birthday and they made him feel special. The waiter (Sam) was so attentive and kind. We enjoyed speaking with him and getting to know him. The waiters are blind and it's incredible how they serve the food and wine and dine you. The room is pitch black. Even with eyes open you can't see a thing! I think it was a bit disappointing with the surprise wine we were given as it wasn't a mix of red and white glasses but two glasses of red from the same bodega. The food was nice and the pork was the most succulent I've tasted. But I think some of the other dishes were a bit bland. (the lettuce was very watery) but overall we had a wonderful night!

    Dans le Noir Madrid - cena a oscuras (Owner)

    Hi Lauren, Thank you very much for your opinion, we are glad to read that you enjoyed the experience, We appreciate your good comment about our attention, we work every day to offer a good service to our guests in order you to enjoy this unique and human experience to the fullest! We are also happy to know that you enjoyed the food. A completely dark tasting can mislead a lot; most of our visitors confond meet and fish or red and white wine. That's why we try to play with flavors, textures, smells but also with colors. We don't choose the wines only for their colors but also for the game they offer for a blind suprise tasting. We feel sad about your comment revealed some of our surprise elements... However, we change the menu each season and we also frequently change the wine. Maybe you'll like more the next wine pairing we'll offer! Thanks from Sam and all the Dans le Noir ? Madrid team!

    I felt very grateful to have the opportunity to experience such a unique dining experience. We were so surprised to discover that we were wrong about some things that we ate and drank. It was also enlightening to depend on our other senses and to use methods in total darkness to drink, pour, eat and communicate. The highlight was meeting Sam, our server, who led us through our evening and served our meal with perfection. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    Although the food was maybe a 4/5 instead of a 5/5, the service and experience were SO SPECIAL that this place deserves a 10/10 review. The waiters are incredible, all so caring and kind. It's a very profound and unique experience, definitely worth doing!

    Dans le Noir Madrid - cena a oscuras (Owner)

    Hi Selene, Thank you very much for your comment about our restaurant! Sure, Dans le Noir ? is much more than a dinner, much more than a restaurant, it is a unique human and sensory experience! We strive to make this human experience unforgettable, and this is in our treatment, as fundamental. We are glad to read that you enjoyed this moment. Best regards from all team!

    The experience is worth it and that’s what you pay for. It’s incredible to eat in the dark and try to discover what you are eating. The food wasn’t any special except for maybe a couple of recipes but it’s a must try experience.

    Dans le Noir Madrid - cena a oscuras (Owner)

    Hi Deborah and thank you for your comment! A tasting in the absolute darkness can mislead a lot. We understand it very well. With the famous "Surprise Menus" that change every three months « Dans le Noir ? » offers you a unique and sensory experience. Our chefs work only with fresh products mostly prepared and cooked the same day in order to maintain the flavor. This is a different way of cooking, specifically prepared and though for the dark, in other words, totally different from a usual menu in the common life. However, we are happy to know that the experience itself worth it to you, we hope you enjoy sharing with your blind-guide, because as we always say, this is the most important part to us. Kind regards from the "Dans le Noir ? Madrid"'s team

    More than just a dinner, you are paying for an experience. The food was a disappointment for us. Tho it was a really different experience.

    Dans le Noir Madrid - cena a oscuras (Owner)

    Hello Mariana, Thank you for your comment, it's very important for us that every client understand the concept and enjoy the experience. We feel sorry about your opinion about the food, even if we know that darkness is a great source of confusion regarding food, especially when you know that many people confound meat and fish when they see nothing. Thank you for your visit and your trust from the whole team!

    Really nice experience, but we had to wait a long, looong time between plates and also the people on our table because we didn't take the starter, which was not indicate by the ladies in the welcoming room before. Globaly a good experience

    Dans le Noir Madrid - cena a oscuras (Owner)

    Hello Alexis! Thank you for your coment! If you would ask us why it took time between each plates we would be glad to explain! This sensorial and human experience is also social : clients share the table with other persons in order to live a moment without prejudice in the dark. There is also some logistical reasons. This night in particular, one waiter missed so your waiter were with 3 tables between of 2. In another hand, serving the same plate at the same time allows you to comment the dishes with your table mates, and this way, your guide can also explain to everyone how to eat the plate just one time. I'm sure you understand that explain each plate to the client one by one would be dificult in those circumstances, and the service would be even longer. Even so, we glad that you enjoyed the experience! We always say that the most important here is to share the experience with our blind waiters-guides. Kind regards from all the team!

    My daughter and I are from America,, in Madrid for a few days to visit for the first time. We wanted to go to a dans Le Noir and just our luck there was one here in Madrid. We had a great experience. The welcome was sincere and thoughtful- my daughter has food allergies and they were amazing about talking with her about her food parameters. Jordan our server/ host was exceptional. And the owners are just fantastic. I would go again... and next time in a city where we could follow along in the conversation in the dark. Excellent place. I recommend!!
