This was beyond any doubt one of the worst experiences I've ever had in a restaurant. The food was horrible. It was subpar. I had asked for chicken instead of fish- the chicken was cold. The quality of the food was like something you'd expect...More

Dear Madam, I'm really sorry to read your comment about our restaurant. Are you sure you came in our restaurant ? Because we do not serve chicken since more than one year. At least I will try to give you an answer. About the food,...More

We went to discover a new concept - very novel to sit in the dark and explore the flavors. The only drawback were the multiple people shushing other tables around us - it was very distracting and did not allow us to enjoy the experience...More

This experience was different from anything you will ever do in your life. It was a tad pricey but worth the money. The quality of the food is great and the experience is just unique. Something that can't be described but only experienced!

The place is ok, unique idea to eat in the darkness, the staff was nice. But the food was too expensive.

The idea is nice and attractive: dining in the absolute dark, focusing on taste and avoiding all the distractions coming from eyesight. This should allow you to fully appreciate the value added by eyesight when evaluating the quality of a dish. In addition, being served...More

The whole thing was a little bit too hectic. From the moment we arrived, things were moving quite intensely (it was all very fast-paced and quite invasive). There was far too much noise in the dining area (from other patrons and from the kitchen) and...More

Dans le noir is a cool concept and on the whole, an enjoyable experience. The staff are all very lovely and attentive - and I'd definitely recommend the experience once in your life (though maybe not for the claustrophobic). However, I was quite disappointed with...More

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

If you are planning for a Friday or Saturday dinner plan tables at two weeks. If that's during week days a few days before should be fine.

I have gluten sensitivity and I told the staff. They warned that the desert contains some gluten but I went for it. If you are celiac, you may miss on parts of the meal, but still the experience is worth it.
