Owner description: Paradis Latin is the most Parisian of the great Cabarets, located in the heart of the Left Bank, just a few minutes walk from Notre Dame and the Pantheon. Built by Gustave Eiffel in 1889, it is National landmark and home to the Hit Show "Paradis à la Folie" with its prestigious artists acclaimed by our guests from all over the world. A little, a lot, passionately ... à la folie! A fabulous cocktail of musical comedy, lavish fanfare and modern ballets" featuring of course the famous French Cancan! Quality of service and dining experience, followed by Paradis à la Folie, are the reasons why its is the Cabaret of Choice of the French public where they come to celebrate the important moments of their lives. The proximity of the scene and the artists, a bilingual MC and great attractions offer the clients a true experience of the French Cabaret, "à la Française" Open every day except Tuesday. Dinner at 8 Pm, one show nightly at 9h30 Pm. Grand Final at 11Pm.

“Great show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We booked this before leaving the UK and it was well worth it (about £70 each).

The theatre itself is old and interesting to look around. It is very packed with many people and crowded tables. We were given a table which sat four and although it was on the side it was a good position to see the show. I would think most seats would have a good view. The show lasts 2 to 3 hours and is very energetic. There is a great atmosphere in the audience.

There was a three course meal and a bottle of wine in with the price. The meal was just ok and I was feeling a little bit disappointed but then the show started. Boy what a show, there were dancing girls (some topless, just telling you in case you are offended) and boys, acrobats, trapeze artist, singers. They tell the story in a variety of languages. There were Russians, Australians, French, English, Aisians, Americans, in the audience. The costumes were fantastic. Photographs can be taken after the show, and you can actually go on the stage and take photos. No photographs during the performance.

The staff were welcoming and spent time going around each table greeting the guests. If you are in Paris I would recommend going here. Paris is an expensive place to eat and drink and althougth the meal wasn't fantastic it was a bonus, this made the show and food good value for money.

Guests have to be careful because there are many hidden steps in the auditorium and once the lights go out for the show you have to watch where you are walking or you could have a nasty fall. The toilets are downstairs and even for a fit person they are down a steep staircase and care should be taken. The disabled toilets are on the ground floor. I would think it would be very difficult for anyone with a disability to see the show because the tables are so close together and access is not good.

A good time overall.

“A great night with fantastic service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

We purchased tickets for the show only which starts at 930pm for 60€. We were a bit unorganized and asked for tickets at the front desk at about 630pm on the night and were lucky to get in. We were initially seated in what I would describe as the worst seats in the house and about 10 minutes after we were seated asked if there were any better seats available (which we were willing to pay more for). After some consultation between the maitre'd and our waiter we were moved to the front row of the second floor on the side of the stage for no extra cost. They seemed to push a few people down and squeezed us in. We were pretty happy by this stage. We then ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter returned shortly after stating that they had run out of this particular wine however they had a similar bottle which he gave us free of charge! The show was great and we had a wonderful night! Great service and a great show. We were very happy with everything. I would recommend purchasing your tickets a couple of days before and if you're not happy with your seat, ask and you may receive a better one :-).

“Next time we go for the gold standard!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The attention from the dinner staff excelled, and was the highlight of the evening. I had to return my main course due to poor food quality, which was easily replaced by the other menu item which was edible. The wine choices accompanying the meal provided was commended. The cabaret show featured quality dancers. The choreography and costumes were mostly disappointing, except for the final can can act. The filler acts would not have made any talent show, which included the singer. We chose this venue given their history and the location near our apartment. On a Saturday night in August it was half full.

“Glad I've done it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

It was a good night out. The price was considerably cheaper than the Moulin Rouge and this was also much closer to our hotel.

The seating can be described as "intimate" (or you basically sit very close together), but it doesn't matter too much. It seemed that everyone had a fairly good view. We had the festival menu (the cheap one!). The food was much better than I expected and I really loved the ice cream!

The only negative bit was that we ordered an extra bottle of wine - which was great, but the price kind of put a damper on it - €45 (bearing in mind the fact that the couple at the next table never arrived and they took their open bottle of wine away - probably to give it us).

My best suggestion would be, if you like your wine, plan your day to give you time to go for a drink beforehand and then go up to see the show.

“Sexy and scintillating!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Some great acts to watch while you enjoy champagne or wine. The guy on the unicycle was my favorite. The costumes are flamboyant and the acts are well choreographed. It's well worth the admission price (which includes the champagne for 2).
