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.

Address: Amsteldijk 55

Closed: Monday and tuesday



Ctaste started in 2007 with its unique concept to provide a unique experience for all its guests ánd provide real jobs for people with visional impairment. Nowadays, Ctaste has 11 visually impaired waiters employed who score a 9 (at a scale of 1-10) at service. Therefore, Ctaste stands for a rememberable evening with a high level of service in a quality restaurant.

How it works – When you’re welcomed at Ctaste, the hostess will explain the concept of the restaurant and all the practical ‘must-knows’ in the lounge (with light). Thereafter, you will be guided to your table by the waiter who will take care of you during dinner. Whatever question or request you have, just call his or her name and you will be helped as soon as possible. For example, if you want to go to the toilet or order a drink, just call for the waiter and he or she will help you out with anything you need. After your dinner, you’ll be guided out by the waiter and the hostess will explain what you have been eating in the lighted lounge.
