Upon arrival, guests should hand over their phones, watches and any other possible light source before being escorted to the dining room where they are greeted in total darkness. With no visual distractions, diners will spend the 90-minute experience pampering their other senses to truly taste, smell, feel and hear their food.

There are three set menus to choose from, each with a two course meal with a drink. Dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for and additional drinks can be purchased in advance before entering the dark dining room. There is also the option to linger after dinner for a drink at the bar.

There will be 3 main courses available (meat, fish and vegetarian) and although the menu is secret, dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for. Diners can also order their favorite drinks to accompany their food before entering the dark dining room.

Each dining experience lasts 90 minutes, giving guests ample time to get comfortable in their new surroundings and enjoy a delicious two-course meal with a drink blindfolded.

This unique dining experience, shrouded in mystery and total darkness, is one you will surely remember.
