“Rip off, obnoxious, vulgar. Avoid unless you like that”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

We were accompanied for our dinner with a friend who has clubs/restaurants in France and members of our families. We got a table under two speakers which were so loud that we could not speak. When we asked the "supervisor" to lower them he ignored us. The waiters were absolutely obnoxious, dropping the menus on our table and leaving without saying a word, dropping the napkins anywhere on the table without even looking at where they would land. The table cloth was dirty, stained and stinking very bad, had not been washed for a while: disgusting! The food prices were stunning : one bottle of rose wine Eur 110, one bottle of Shaffer red Eur 300, one beef filet Eur 50 and the rest follows... The music was as bad as the rest : Dalida, Claude Francois type songs. The waiters were like zombies, like drunk or more.. touching/brushing you every time they were around you and leaving suddenly, very fast to go nowhere. Horrible evening. We should have left 10 mn after our arrival as we felt trapped, but didn't do it as we were with friends and families. Never again. One of the worst experience ever.

“A lot of fun but not worth the $”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We went here with a friend who knew it and enjoys the atmosphere. That was the only thing that was worth it. It was loud, crazy and it was and indulgent experience. We started off with cocktails (35 euro each) and had steak as a main meal. Not terrible but nothing to speak of. The crowd was not St. Tropez high class at all; mostly business men, girls having a drunken birthday dinner and single women at the bar. Watching was fun, but for the money, (400 euro for three of us and we shared the meal) next time we will opt for a Michelin restaurant, not a dinner like this.

“You go there just for the show”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

The place is just out of reality. The show too. You will be having fun for sure as everybody there is crazy even the guests.

The service what service????

The food was so and so. Not to tasty.

You don't go there for the food but for the show. You need to go at least one time!!!

“Quite an experience”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

If you are going here expecting good food then you can forget it. Despite the high prices, the quality of food is appalling. However, this place is not about the food - it is all about the atmosphere. The place is quite surreal (think circus / carnival) and to be honest we were a little apprehensive at first and thought about leaving but decided that it was a 'one off' experience and to just go with it. The price of drinks is eye watering, but it is all about flashing the cash and having a good time.

We ended up having a great time although we did wake up the next morning and think "we spent how much". I would say that unless you have limitless amounts of cash that you want to burn, just because you can, this place is probably not going to become your regular haunt. But it is quite good fun for a one off peak at how the other half live!
