Description: MORE THAN A RESTAURANT, A UNIQUE SENSORY AND HUMAN EXPERIENCE. Dining totally in the dark, attended by unique guides, is a sensorial experience that awakens the senses and allows diners to completely re-evaluate their perception of taste, smell and texture. Darkness eradicates shyness and fosters coexistence, erasing the prejudices bestowed by sight. Communication becomes more intense, more authentic and more spontaneous. WHERE THE LIGHT IS TURNED OUT, THE WAYS ARE AWAKENED ENJOY IT NOW IN MADRID!

We had a coupon and went at the end of June. The experience was fascinating. Specially with our waiter, Sam, who guided us through the whole dinner with a great mood and always willing to assist us.
We met some new people, and although we could not see each other, we had great laughs with them.
We recommend it and will go back.
It is an expensive meal, but worth it.

We spend our last day of the family trip at this resturant and had a great experience here! The host was super nice and the food and wine were great. It’s not only a dinner, it’s also an experience to solve the tasting. Truly recommend it!

I had never heard of this restaurant and was very surprised to learn that we would be eating in the dark. I had my reservations as I'm a celiac and I found it very disconcerting to learn that I was going to be served a meal that I could not see. However the owner Maité put me quite at ease explaining that my menu was being prepared separately. The waiter would know who I was and every precaution would be taken to make sure I felt confident that I was eating a gluten-free meal. I relaxed and went into the dining hall with my colleagues in line like we used to do in infants school. We were seated and as our eyes got used to being in the darkness the rest of our senses began to kick in. We were served a delicious three course meal which truly tested our taste buds. Until this day I had not realized just how much I rely on seeing what I am eating to decide whether I like it or not. Today, without realizing it, I ate mussels and enjoyed them. The whole experience was humbling. Prejudices have many guises and it is good to have them challenged from time to time.

One of the most interesting experiences of my life! I have never been in a place anything like it.
The facts are pretty easy to describe: we ate and drank in complete dark, we had no idea what we were having until the end, the food was yummy. The staff and our waiter Jordi were extremely nice :) but it is much more than that.... The experience itself is a lot more difficult to describe as it is very personal for everyone. Therefore, I would recommend with all my heart to try it and feel it for yourself as it is, in my opinion, very special and awakening....

“Dans le Noir” was one of the most amazing things I did during my stay in Madrid, it was a great restaurant where I discovered a new way of having diner while eating exquisite dishes. This restaurant arouses in me all my senses and I still keep an excellent memory of it. With friends or family, I highly recommend it.
