Owner description: Touring over 20 countries a year and with a permanent London West End residency too, this critically acclaimed show has been winning five-star reviews and standing ovations since 1997. It's 'a two-hour eat, drink and laugh sensation!' (Daily Telegraph). The fun starts as the audience wait to be seated and then hurtles along as they become diners in that infamous hotel. Meanwhile, Basil, Sybil and Manuel aspire to be their warring waiters, serving a 3-course meal with a good dollop of mayhem. This is fully immersive, highly improvised, site-specific comedy theatre at its best - and because only a third of show is scripted, performances are always fresh. Expect all the best gags and 'a rip-roaringly hilarious night out' (This Is London). Just don't mention the war! - 'Outstanding! (Fringe Review) - 'Uniquely enjoyable... A worthy alternative to some of the West End's other shows... It will have you raving' (Britain Magazine) - 'Deliciously entertaining from start to finish, this is not to be missed.' (What's on London) - 'Fantastic!' (What's on Stage)

This is the 3rd time I have seen this show. Twice in the UK and now in The Netherlands. The actors have everything down to a tee - its like you are watching a Fawlty Towers episode come to life in the room!

The interaction with the characters is brilliant and everyone is made to feel part of the performance.

We are planning to go whenever they come to The Netherlands now as we had such a brilliant time.

Note that I do not go into too much detail about the show - go and see for yourself, I don't want to spoil it for you here!

This interactive performance is a must for any true Fawlty Towers fan. The actors have been well-chosen to match the original characters. The performance was non-stop and each of the diners was brought into the action during the meal. They make you feel as if you are truly a "guest" in Basil's hotel. The food is adequate but you are not going there for the food. The wine choice is limited and is expensive (white wine was not chilled). All in all a fun experience.

Laughter from the outset! We arranged this for a group of 20 to celebrate a colleagues' retirement. As others have said, the 3 actors were really very good - just like being in Torquay. Audience participation was aimed at the right level, not making fun of people, simply including them as props to the entertainment. Without spoiling any of the act, the food was also good and plays a part in the evening as well. The quality of food was also very good too. Considering the venue and the area in London, this is a value-for-money evening and well worth every penny.

We went to see this in Watford yesterday and had a blast. Every funny moment you remember from the TV series plus some extra bits. The three actors were great and had the voices and mannerisms just right. We laughed so much that it hurt. The food was good too (I had expected it to be rather dire, just as I imagine the food in the "real" Fawlty Towers would have been).
