It was a really intresting experience eating in a dark room. The food was great and the over all experience is great. You should at least try it once in your lifetime i should say. Food will taste different and you get to use more of your other senses during th course of the meal.

WOW. What an experience!!!

The boyfriend and I decided this would make an awesome date night while staying in Vancouver. We saw this deal on groupon for C$54, ~$41 USD for two people and use on any day of the week except Saturdays. It was a three course meal including an appetizer, main dish and dessert.

I actually thought we were going to be blindfolded and was afraid my eyelash extensions would be ruined so I brought some goggles to protect them. I probably should have read up on the experience because I learned that the whole room is COMPLETELY DARK. Not one peep of light! I recommend you wearing dark clothes or clothes you don't care about just in case you spill or drop food all over you. I wore white because I don't think about things like this. Fashion before comfort. At any cost! I was very careful but also very anxious about ruining my new white and blue skirt, but luckily I didn't get anything on myself!

A menu is presented prior to entering the restaurant in which you choose you main dish. I ordered the prawns with risotto and he had the chicken with potatoes. The appetizer is a surprise as is the dessert.

Rose was our server and she was awesome. It's amazing how much you can communicate without seeing. I don't want to give away any of the experience because I don't want to take away from yours but my boyfriend and I learned that we had good communication skills and had developed a way to share out food and drinks without feeding each others eyes and ears.

At a place like this, you almost expect the experience to outweigh the taste of the food, but I thought both were equally amazing.

*Appetizer*
The appetizer was yummy and light. The end. No spoilers here!

*Main Dish*
The prawns and garlic risotto were delicious. The prawns and flavorful and the risotto was cooked perfectly. I ate everything on my plate. That must mean it's good coming from a girl who counts calories and is always on a diet. The boyfriend thought it was difficult to cut his chicken himself (boo hoo, now we know what it's like to have a handicap!) but said it was seasoned well and moist. I thought it was tasty too. The potatoes were undercooked and over-seasoned.

*Dessert*
For the dessert, I recommended someone saying they have a peanut allergy (as recommended by Rose) to have a different dessert if you are sharing with someone else. It's nice to taste different flavors, especially when you get to guess what you are eating.

We were very lucky that we had some fun neighbors sitting next to us as it just added to the experience. It's amazing how your other senses are amplified. In my experience, my sense of hearing was definitely amplified and I learned how much seeing was linked to my enjoyment of food. Many times I could sense a familiarity in taste to what I was eating but couldn't necessarily identify what exactly I was eating.

This is definitely a worthwhile experience. It made a great date. It also makes you better aware of the difficulties others may have with their handicaps.
