I went along with my colleagues, we were around 10 people and we had reserved a table. The reception is bright and they briefly explain you about how things work and tell you about the menu. Then the waitress (who was blind) asked us to make a chain and lead us through 3 thick curtains and the place was pitch... More

I went to Blinde Kuh on a Saturday night with my boyfriend, we had booked a table for two at eight and everything was in order. When we got there the receptionist explained to us where we were gonna leave our stuff, and asked us to leave anything that produces light such as phones or watches in the lockers at... More

We wanted to eat dinner here for the experience of understanding a little about the difficulties faced by blind people. We certainly found the experience to be eye-opening. The restaurant is pitch black dark. You can't see anything at all, not even your own hand. The only time I've been in a place as dark as Blinde Kuh was when... More

Me, my sister and our father went here to eat just for fun, really. How often do you get to eat in pitch black room?? The food is rather average, I would never pay that much if it wasn't for the whole experience the visit gave us. The first minutes is a bit intense since you can't see ANYTHING, but... More

Dine in complete darkness: Pitch Black, where you can't even see your hands. Served by blind waiters and waitresses. This is an extraordinary experience that helps the sighted to understand the world of the blind. Every city should have one.

It is the first time I try blind restaurant. Left phone and camera in the locker and go to the totally dark environment for my dinner. Can not see anything!!! And I took the beef with my hand and fork. It's a really fantastic experience. Really admire all the blind people after this meal. 第一次尝试盲人餐厅,虽然菜的选择不多,感觉很有意义,在苏黎世吓死人的物价下还是选择来这里尝试一下。觉得物超所值!

I was taken here as a surprise by my bf and we had a great experience. The food was tasty and there was plenty of it... We paid over 150, francs but this is Zurich... And I think you pay for the experience. It really made me think about how lucky we are to see...i got a bit freaked out... More

The meal was good (I had the surprise menu), without being exceptional, but this is not what matters the most in this restaurant. We have been very well taken care of, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the experience was good! Overall it was a bit expensive, which we expected.

I'm guessing if you're researching Blinde Kuh, you already know the premise. I have to say, even knowing what the concept was, nothing can truly prepare you for it. The first few minutes in the dark are a bit strange, but once you relax and accept it, you will not find a more unique dining experience. My wife and I... More

In my opinion theres way too less restaurants like this. Not saying all should be in the dark, but an experience. It was a bit a weird feeling being in the dark at first, but the food was great. The waitress was really friendly and doing a good job too. My friends who are from the states and were visiting... More
