Faulty Towers The Dining Experience description

A 2 hour interactive production set in a restaurant where the audience are the diners who enjoy a 3 course lunch or dinner.  Faulty Towers The Dining Experience debuted in Brisbane on April 24 1997.  Since then thousands of people have enjoyed the antics of Basil, Sybil and Manuel.  This is the 5-star critically acclaimed production constantly in demand throughout the Australia, Europe, United Kingdom, Ireland, Scandinavia, United Arab Emirates ...

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is site-specific immersion theatre, and is suitable for public performances, and for private showings of the full performance.

Proper belly laughing show.

The show was truly amazing, we were crying with laughter. we couldn't fault the actors at all, they kept us well entertained. My only criticism was the hotel staff serving the meal, they were not friendly or smiley which is a shame. However defo a 10/10 for the show and food.

The show was ok, the food wasn’t good and very little of it especially as we paid £73 a ticket online and there was people paying £55 on the door! I think even £55 is expensive for what you relieved.

The essence of Fawlty

From the table seating to the talk at individual tables, to the frenetic end, the cast stayed true to character. It was delightful. Just remember, the dinner itself is more of a prop than fine dining.

A must see hilarious experience

We booked the dining experience for a special wedding Anniversary treat, we had read all of the excellent reviews before we were due to visit so what we actually experienced on the night was exactly how we imagined the night to be. Right from the start of the evening we were delighted to see the comedy begin as we were arriving into the bar area waiting for the dining comedy show to start, we were finding the humour hilarious picking on different members of the audience just like the TV show at the hotel. When we found our table we shared with three other couples, and we didn't stop laughing from the start of that until the end of the meal. I would definitely recommend to couples of that era and theatre goers alike. The food was good and tasted nice we wasn't dissapointed after some of the previous reviews we had already read before we left home. The evening is worth the money to see a show with a meal included. There were several others celebrating other occasions a good choice if you wanted something a bit different. Overall I'd rate this dining experience as excellent.

Excellent show!! My only complaint was the food. I sat with my friend at a table of 8 and 6/8 all added salt on every dish. The food was a big disappointment at the presidents hotel, but the actors and script made up it perhaps.

If you're hungry and you get hangry make sure eat before you go... food was only just above average- no alternatives. Theatrical acting interfered with food ie - food was thrown around. This was meant to be funny but not if you're hungry as waiting for starter was pretty long.But only on the first course. HOWEVER Acting was superb.. set ups and relation to original series was bang on. Please do not go there for the food... its a show which is great.... script is fantastic. You will be seated with others unless a large group but this is great for meeting new people and having a laugh. Audience interaction was really good but maybe a little to much for some. If anybody under 14/15 doesn't understand faulty towers don't take them. Ending was abrupt and 20 minutes before it was meant to. No opportunity to thank the actors or for photos. We were asked to.leave despite buying g more drinks at the bar and enjoying the company of the new people we had met that day. On the whole we would mark it a 7/10 only because of the wait for food, less time than advertised, abrupt ending and asked to leave. Address these issues and we might rtetn. The venue (hotel) was lovely!! Great staff Pricey beer £15 for 2 pints - wine is better value at £26 bottle

The actors were amazing and it was laugh a minute. I am definitely glad i went, BUT the food is abysmal! The least they could do (for the price) is give you more than 2 diddy new potatoes, and the chicken which was hardly edible was drowned in gravy. Apart from feeling disappointed about the food, the show was amazingly hilarious and thankfully made up for the hunger pangs I felt on the way home!!!

Hard to hear - ok panto fair

It was an ok evening of slapstick that fails to capture the humour of the show. Overplayed language barriers with manuel and an absence of engaging content left only the promising visual presentation of the actors - which was pretty good. Working such a large audience with out much material is always likely to be a challenge and with political correctness the order of the day you are left with a cruise ship panto - some will still love it. Show not helped by poor mass produced food in a modern best western style hotel!

On the other had, if you have seen the TV series, and are OK being publicly mocked for the entertainment of others, then absolutely participate in this show. I use the word participate, because that is what you have to do. You are part of the show, if you draw attention to yourself, you will get attention. But it is fun attention.
