This restaurant makes you aware of all your senses and ensures you take none for granted! Well thought out, superb waiters/hosts, very good menu and well chosen music (subtle, not heavy, light and modern right for the surroundings). Well done Yurk!

A unique experience with amazing food and service. It was our first time in a dark restaurant, at the beginning is a bid weird but our server Jurke helped us to feel very comfortable. Totally recommended.

If you have always been able to see the food you've been eating, then you haven't been to Nocti Vagus. Based on the "dining in the dark", restaurant concept featured on such shows as "Ellen", it is one of the world's few locations where this...More

This was our first trip to a Dunkelrestaurant and we were both very excited. The concept and idea is good, and we felt very welcome. Good service (on course is served in the light) and the waiter in the dark was friendly and nice. Never...More

Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were

there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
