It was a very boring and long performance. 👎👎👎There was almost no element characteristic of Cabaret. During the performance in the hall was very disorganized, people are constantly coming in and out.
I am deeply disappointed
I will never visit here again 👎👎👎
I recommend visiting the Moulin Rouge - it's a miracle.

Very disappointed to see that my place, supposed to be in the best area, was in a table with a family of three people I didn’t know . I felt embarrassed for them and though that just pushing my chair a little bit aside would sort it out. The answer I received, in a very rude manner, from the supervisor was: “This is Cabaret, that’s how it works”. From this point on and with the calling of the manager all that happened was lack of politeness and professionalism. By the way, this was Christmas eve and the ticket price was 120 euros. The manager said that everything was perfect, it was my lack of French that created the problem. Communication and Customer Care is definitely above language.

What an awful experience, we’re in shock. Arrived tonight for a 20h30 show of Rocky Horror.

Stood outside with other ticket holders only for the door to be closed and the lights turned off.

No correspondence and no contact available. Awful. I’d vote negative stars if I could.

It is full of vibrant, colorful costumes, a seductive cast of performers who are animated and filled with Paris energy and a sultry soloist who captivates from the first song. The dinner show comes with a menu filled with delicious French selections and great wines guaranteed to satisfy!

I went to this show 30 years ago with my dad and remember there being plenty of semi nude girls but also really entertaining magic acts, tiger acts and gymnastic phenomenon. This time there was lots of dance numbers, the same girls parading around, a medium singer, good special effects and few accompanying acts of interest. I much prefer the current Moulin Rouge Cabaret and if I could only go to one, would chose it and I would only go to one.

we had a card with time of show the costs and inclusions, It seemed strange that when we arrived we were checked in and shown to our booth, great, champaigne was brought to the table included in the cost, the show starts. during the show a waiter comes and asks for payment, now this is an inconvenience that no one should have their right to see the shoe interrupted to pay the bill. THIS IS A BAD PRACTICE. also you have a so called professional photographer take pictures prior to the show starting, Low an behold the same person that had interrupted before was back with the photos, now this is the interesting part, he just stood in front of me blocking my view of the show I said please move your blocking my view, He stood there for at least 50 seconds in the end he moved and showed my friends the photos, now in a darken theatre they looked at the prints then handed all back. the photos where usesless, no good.. Final remark show was good would have been better without being interupted. Payment should be taken on entry to the vacility.

The interior, champagne and service was nice but the show itself was nothing to brag about. I had a distinct feeling that the producers tried to hide a low level of dancing skills of most of the female dancers behind the topless costumes. In some cases it wasn't even appealing to look at. A lot of the female dancers couldn't even lift up their legs in tune with the music. I was sorely disappointed, especially considering that I didn't have any expectations before going there.
Also, we were lucky there was 3 of us so we didn't get any additional people at our table on the balcony. Some couples were unpleasantely surprised by having to share their table with another couple. The view from the last row of the balcony was good, I think much better than from the furthest places on the ground floor.

Went to this show last night at 11pm it was so disappointing. The show was awful. It was amateur, badly choreographed, and lacked substance. There was so many empty seats and the “champagne” was cheap and nasty. We left half way through the show. Ive never left a show early before. Basically it was topless women parading across the stage and men walking around in there underpants. Don’t think I’ve seen a worse show and it wasn’t cheap. My advice is don’t waste your money.

Hello, First of all, we want to thank you for taking the time to share your opinion with us. We are sorry to hear that your night did not live up your exception. We will have to agree to disagree, because our dancers are fantastic and that we are proud and honored to present what we believe is the most modern, artistic and innovative show in Paris. They are extremely talented professionals, the best in their own domain. We trust our artists’ talent and believe our show is the best artistic performance amongst Parisian cabaret. We find your opinion a bit reductive - the Boys are in their underwear in only one sequence out of fifteen - and it does not do honor to the incredible work of staging and the artistic performance. We hope to see you again to be able to change your mind. With all our consideration, The Lido team

To begin with you can book just the show or the dinner and the show, Then you can choose between the the lunch, the 7pm dinner with the 9-11 show, or the late 11 pm show. The range among these options can take from 75 Euro to 300 Euros per person.

If you choose the dinner there are additional options like the Sioree Plume 130 Euros, Soiree Etoile 170 Euro or the Soiree Champs-Elysees 195 Euros. They are all 3 course dinners. Personally, i do not appreciate champagne and although the chicken dinner was alright, I have had better for far less cost. At the upper end you get a bottle of wine but I like beer.Drinks needless to say a pricey if bought separately from the package you choose. The seat separation is better than the Moulin Rouge. The Lido is also in a much better section than the Moulin rouge.There is pre-show entertainment.

Filming is not allowed. If you book online you can cancel 24 hours before your booked show. The shows which run about 2 hours start at 9 pm. and run to 11 pm. If you take the show and dinner package the dinner is at 7 pm. It's a variety performance with cabaret dancing, mime, juggling, trapeze act, singing, and of course show girls. The singing was exceptional.. There is some breast nudity but never felt tacky. The mechanical stage keeps the action going none-stop. The set designs are beautiful with a deep stage.There ia a WoW factor to the production.. There is an actual story line to the show which was written and directed by Franco Dragone. The theme is a tribute to the City of Lights.

So put on your evening best and head out to Lido. The Lido has wheelchair access. Do not buy the $25 photo and if you can go without a jacket you can avoid the mandatory coat checking.
