I have never had my food thrown in front of me before, so that was a new experience. The service staff were aggressive and unfriendly and I'd say they saw their customers as a nuisance. As for the food, we couldn't eat it, the meat was so tough. Now for the entertainment...well...it was painful to watch. One "performer" read from... More

My friend and I went for the first time last week with high expectations. From the moment you queue to the moment you leave the staff create a fun and lively atmosphere. The show was incredible, the setting very good and well done. I would say the only negative comment I have is about the food. I am vegan and... More

It was my first time to Dracs and I thought the show was boring and really really stupid but the set up of the actual theatre was cool and the costumes were good too. The food was ok. I thought the chocolate coffin for dessert was really cool. Taste of the chocolate.. Well, let's just say that cheapo cadburys is... More

Whoa- never again. The first Time we went here, The show was pretty good. The food was terrible. This time the show was about a 2/10- and I'm being very generous. The actors and actresses definitely had talent, but the choreographer needed to get off the drugs. If it was burlesque I would've said fine, but it was pretty much... More

Decided to give a show with a difference a go. The food was good and the musical theme was interesting. The service was quite good however had to ask for dessert. I would recommend upgrading to the VIP status to ensure the best spot to watch.

This was the first time both me and my partner had attended draculars. We were quite pleased with both the show and the food. I felt the drinks were slightly over priced, so plan to spend a bit of extra money on drinks. Overall however a good experience. Some very talented people involved!

A friend of mine brought me here and I had no idea what to expect. The hosts are hilarious and the drinks amazing! Fishbowl cocktails with dry ice were to die for. The show itself was both sexy and hilarious, definitely not for the prudish. The meals were 1st class and the detail was amazing. I will come here everytime... More

Did the VIP package and I do not think it is good value. The main meal was surprisingly good and the show was entertaining with some great talent however I could not really understand the corilation to the Dracula's theme. Venue is great. Next time dinner and show only, Definitely not VIP. Also paid for the photo and was never... More

This was one of those shows where my family and I walked out and didn't know what the heck we just watched?!?! Atmosphere was great. The characters were great and talented but that's where it ends. I had such high expectation but the show just fell plain flat! The best part of the show in my opinion was the beginning... More
