DANS LE NOIR ? AN UNUSUAL RESTAURANT
Dans le Noir ? invites you to dine in complete darkness, accompanied and served by unexpected guides.

Dans le Noir? invites you to a sensory journey where you will taste dishes served at the court of the Pharaohs. An authentic but surprising sensory and cultural experience! Our surprise menus made by our chefs are the result of important research, carried out especially with specialists in archaeology. Our visitors focus on flavours, smells and textures. But a meal Dans le Noir? is also the occasion to live a surprising moment, liberated from our preconceptions and our social conventions, where the other becomes a source of curiosity.

CONVIVIALITY THAT OPENS THE MIND
Freed from the weight of people’s gazes, preconceptions and social conventions, communication becomes simpler, authentic and spontaneous. Completely reassess your relationship with others and the world. Your neighbour can become a curiosity to be explored. Discussions intermingle and then deepen, bonds are forged, the spirit opens... An opportunity to meet and reflect on the way we consume or on our relationship with others.
AN ENCOUNTER WITH DIVERSITY
Guided and served by a blind or partially sighted person, this unusual meal is a moment of positive empathy that breaks our preconceived ideas of disability. Driven by this reversal of roles, the experience allows us to perceive the richness of diversity as well as to recognise abilities beyond preconceived ideas. It’s a good way to make your friends and family or your teams aware of difference, since it’s better to experience something than to simply hear about it. All our guides and sensory experts have found strength in their differences.
