Ever wondered what it is like to eat in the dark? Eminent psychologists have been advocating dining in the dark as the ultimate taste experience for many years.
Research has shown that 80% percent of our experience from food comes from what we see with our eyes, with that sense eliminated, your sense of taste & smell come alive & elevate your meal to a whole new level.
After enjoying your welcome drink, you will be seated & asked to don your blindfold allowing you to fully experience the taste of the curated 2 course menu.
It's your choice whether your view the menu before hand or trust our experienced chefs to delight your senses even more with the element of surprise!
A truly enlightening experience!
Once dinner is finished enjoy our chocolate in the dark tasting experience led by head chocolatier from 31 Degrees luxury chocolates.
Come along to make some new friends, support a worthwhile cause and go home with a full heart & stomach!
