How does it work?
Dark Restaurant® combines tastes from worldwide cuisines and also with regional and molecular ones. The menu as well as the beverages are surprises. After the dinner guests can talk to the chef who explains the menu in detail.
Dark Restaurant® is the unique restaurant in Poland where guests have been continously served in the darkness for 14 years. Before entering, our crew provides a short interview considering the chosen menu, food alergies and excluded ingrediences.
Our chef with his crew then prepare the individual menu based on the informations mentioned in the interwiev. Custoumers will learn all the ingredients later during the meeting with the chef, who explains all details about the menu.
The average time spent in the darkness is 90 to 120 minutes.

Till today there is a room dedicated to a poznanian artist Jerzy Potrowicz, the interieur of the restaurant is decorated with a serie of sculptures ilustrating the history of the oldest love of Adam and Eve. The serie begins with two sculptures surrounding the entracne to the building.
