Super overated. Why stand in the cold for hours in the queue when you can have so much more fun in other areas?

My wife and I watched the Moulin Rogue show last October. The show was great and we were actually very surprised and happy with the "side shows"...they were very funny and entertaining. We went for both dinner and show. We have no problem with the show but knowing what we know now, we would only go for the show and have dinner somewhere else. The show was packed and most of the waiters we felt were just going through the motions of doing their job of serving the food. My wife wanted another kind of knife for her fish and instead if giving her one of explaining nicely, the waiter assigned to us just gave us attitude. You felt everytime you ask the waiters something, that you were giving them a hard time. I won't say all the waiters but I can definitely speak for the waiter for our table and the one in front of us. Overall definitely go for the show but you are not missing anything if you skip the dinner other than the attitude.

Quite a walk from the sacred heart basilica, worth it though! Not too many tourists even on a Saturday night. Photos do not do it justice! Not recommended for parents who have not had "the talk" with their children as there are many adult shops lining the streets!

Amazing. Expensive but fantastic value! So many accolades. We went on the Metro, had a five minute walk from the station and felt safe at all times. Cheap and convenient. The dancers were top class and the supporting acts were just as good. Well worth the expense. A most memorable night. Our favourite attraction.

The best show I've seen. I travelled all over the world and watch shows everywhere but this one it's supreme!!! The dinner it's over rated but do the bottle of champagne. Buy tickets directly from the Moulin Rouge website.
