Ctaste: to see taste it must be dark

Enjoying your food, but in a different way.

Visiting ctaste Amsterdam is not like visiting an ordinary restaurant.

In ctaste you will enjoy your food in the complete dark… The dining in the dark experience allows you to willingly plunge into a world of sensitivity you have never experienced before, taking you through a journey of taste, sound and touch, all in the dark.

Ctaste – Dining in the Dark – will seat you in a literally pitch-black dining room where you will be guided and served by blind or visually impaired individuals that have been specially trained to serve meals in the dark, casually and comfortably offering guidance and reassurance for sighted guests.

Upon arriving at the Dining, you will be welcomed in a lighted lounge area where you will pick from our specially prepared menus and we will check your coat or bag as you don’t need anything but your senses. Once you have ordered, you will be personally guided into the darkened dining room.

Our team will make sure that you will not forget this evening easily and will make your experience both safe and enjoyable.

Reservations can be made here.
We suggest booking your table in advance.

Using your senses, but see nothing.
