Opted for chocolate fondue. Entertaining and messy experience which the kids absolutely loved, together with a valuable lesson re visual impairement. Pitch dark doesn't even start to cover it as your eyes to not adjust at all! Pouring a glass of water proved highly entertaining...More

We had dinner yesterday at Ctaste. Overall the dining in the dark experience is definitely worth trying once. The food was not great though and quite expensive... the lounge doesn't look too good. Drinks we got before dinner were not cold and served in dirty...More

The dinner was great, the atmosphere was certainly quite different as everything was served and eaten in the dark. Gives you a whole lot of insight into being visually impaired. Great experience.

We went there as a couple. Great experience to try. You definitely need to go with someone that has good chat, as you wont get conversation starters from people walking by, its pitch black! Food was pretty good, ended up eating with fingers. Would recommend...More

I visited this restaurant with work colleagues, and it was an experience worth having. You are escorted into the dinning room which is in complete and total darkness, you have to feel you way to your seat, the table is laid, and then you are...More

We were definitely not expecting the food to be as great as it was! Figuring out all the different flavours in the dark just added to the experience. Will be taking friends there in the future for sure!

A dinner in the dark, what an incredible formula, in particular when served by visibly impaired staff. We had a useful introduction as starter and were served by Jeroen, a very friendly waiter who put us quickly at ease. We had the extra sorbet and...More

Would it be suitable to take our 5 year old with us?

Response from BasdeRuiter | Property representative |
Hi thank you for your comment. It is suitable, and our waiters will give a bit more attention to your kid, and try to explain how they work in the dark. A 5 year old might like it, or not. It depends on the child. I would... More

Hi Jacinta, I think you will be fine. The staff are really friendly and helpful and they will from what I saw make you very comfortable. One of the best experiences I have had.
If there are two of us doing the three course meal, how long should our experience roughly take from beginning to end? I ask because we have another event booked afterwards that is across town, and I want to make reservations with plenty of time to get there. Thanks!

Hi and thank you for asking. Time flies when you're in the dark. A dinner usually takes around 2 hours, On a Saturday evening, when every table is booked, it's wise to add half an hour. But we can work with a tighter time... More
