Ctaste is the ideal destination for people who enjoy innovative and exciting experiences. This restaurant’s special feature is that you eat here in complete darkness, concentrating only on sounds, smells, touch and taste. So it’s a pretty refreshing experience!

Sightless pleasures

When you enter the restaurant, you choose your menu and hand over your bags and coats. A guide takes each guest to his table, where you sit down in the darkness to start the meal. I am always amazed to experience just how some tastes change when there is a complete absence of light. The restaurant’s impact would be less without its amazing, non-sighted staff of four waiters, who are receptive to the slightest differences. It’s they who are the real protagonists of the dinner. An evening spent here is rarely a forgettable one.

Fresh and varied recipes


One of the challenges proposed by Ctaste is to allow us to approach food in a different way, which leads to big surprises each time you take a mouthful. Whether it’s vegetarian, meat- or fish-based, the chef’s cooking is always apposite. You can take your friends there to entertain them, or even use it for a romantic dinner for two. Once you’ve got past the first few minutes, which can often be disconcerting for people who haven’t been there before, you really get into the swing of it and enjoy the contemplative atmosphere of the restaurant.

Open from Wednesday to Sunday, 5.30 pm to 11 pm.
Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

I love Amsterdam's open spirit. It's easy to meet people and have rich, interesting conversations. The heart of the city is bubbling over with cultural initiatives, secret restaurants and nature routes that relax you in no time. I want to share it all with you!
