“Not good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Lovely set up, great cocktails but unrealistically overpriced.

“Get your dancing shoes on, and remember to shine them; everyone will see them!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Conspicuous consumption at it's best; La Mangeoire has resisted the urge to adorn itself with Michelin stars. It has, equally, resisted the temptation to put a sign outside, which retains its air of exclusivity!

There are two sittings; aim for the later one (9pm) as the whole place properly kicks off at around 10.30-11pm when the soulful lady singer turns into an electro-funky-house diva and the DJ starts winding the crowd up and onto the tables!

You will almost certainly hear the Star Wars theme tune more than once; only the most extravagant orders (read >€200 worth of drink) attract this special honour: an interruption to the music, dimming of the lights and Star-Wars-theme-tune-backed procession through the restaurant with your drinks resplendent in the glare of the indoor fireworks!

There's a smoking room downstairs too, if you fancy a cigar/cigarette without standing outside in the cold. Bring your own cigars, though, the lady who sells them has clearly never smoked one of them and she is a complete rip-off merchant!

“Fun fun fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2011

Take a very deep breath and be prepared to spend the price of an average weeks holiday per head. The restaurant is very glam and slowly transforms from restaurant to nightclub at about 11.30 - it's quite a sight to see what looks like an upmarket restaurant with people dancing on the tables!

During the dinner service they have an excellent torch singer who is replaced by the owner as DJ as the evening goes on. Be prepared to dodge bullets on the wine list, with the cheapest bottle starting at €180 and a magnum of Cristal (the drink of choice here) weighing in at €1300 - this does include the owner playing the Star Wars theme as it is delivered to your table with fireworks (no, I'm not joking!).

It has a real St Tropez feel to it and it's either your bag or not, but you should try it at least once.

Oh, by the way, the food is all right, certainly nothing special but that's not why you come here!
