May have once been an iconic place and experience, but that was 30 years ago... but now, overpriced, underwhelming service and a really tacky show... in a really tacky part of town. The in-between acts of acrobats, swimming with snakes (yep) and the comedian were the best parts, well maybe not the snake swimming... seriously what is that about...? Consequently... More

My husband took me to this for my birthday and I absolutely loved it. The performance is not the most impressive acting or singing in the world, but you are there for the experience more than anything!

We went to the Moulin Rouge during our recent Paris trip after we had been given tickets as a birthday gift. Our tickets were for the show only so didn't include dinner or drinks. After reading previous reviews we wondered wether or not to slip the usher an incentive to seat us at a good table. We would now suggest... More

We purchased tickets at home before heading to Paris. Showed up early as seating is first come first seated. We attended the second showing which started 30 minutes late at approximately 11:30. After standing in line for 1 hour we were seated right next to the stage which was not ideal for this show. All the men had their backs... More

While we were in Paris we decided to do what all tourists do and watch a show at the moulin rouge. When we arrived in the late afternoon it wasn't anything special. It appeared to be surrounded by strip clubs and sex shops. As soon as we walked in it appeared dull and small. The tickets cost a FORTUNE $$$... More

Experiencing the Moulin Rouge was something my wife and I will never forget, we really enjoyed the food, the champagne and the entertainment. This is a must on anyones to-do list whilst in Paris. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did

We were a little concerned after reading the mixed reviews but very happy we did! The prices were a little on the high side however the food was fantastic and the champagne served (Mumm) was very good. There is some topless nudity but is very tasteful and for those that find this offensive there are plenty of churches and monuments... More

The show itself was pretty spectacular, we got champagne and the service was okay. Our seats weren't the greatest, kinda near the back. When they were seating us it was a bit un-organized. The show itself was very good, even though it was all in french and I don't speak french I still enjoyed it.

We came in with really high expectations and were a bit disappointed with the show. The costumes were beautiful, It was entertaining, and the champagne went down very well. It was a once in a lifetime experience and for us that was enough. We were told that seats were allocated at the time you booked them, this is not the... More

I have been struggling to find the right title for this review. Then it flashed on my laptop screen. BORING. You may or may not call it poor or terrible, but the real problem with this show is that it is boring, with no excitement and no entertainment value. Throughout the show we were waiting for the real show to... More
