Onoir is Canada’s first-ever restaurant that invites you to experience food, drink and conversation like never before in the dark. When you eat without your sight, your remaining senses are heightened to savour the smell and taste of food. Onoir does more than fire the imagination and stimulate the senses. After a while in complete darkness, customers gain a better understanding of what it’s like to be blind – as the restaurants’ entire wait staff.
Onoir has elicited the support of Horizon Travail, an organization affiliated with Emploi Quebec, which helps prepare and train visually impaired people to enter in the job market; a population that experiences roughly a 70% unemployment rate. A percentage of Onoir’s profits are given to support local associations that serve blind and visually impaired people of all ages.
After a decade of experience, we offer everything you’d expect from a fine restaurant: Great service, an enticing menu plus a culinary experience like no other.
