We laughed lots and thought the actors were very true to the original. They worked hard to involve everyone at some point during the evening and made everyone feel included. I have recommended it to friends already.
Hilarious and amusing night. Would highly recommend. In fact I have recommended and people have arranged corporate dinners and nights out. And always fed back that they loved it
Loved it, funny, something totally different. One of the highlights of my holiday in London in 2016.

Exhilarating! Absolutely enjoyable! We laughed till our belly ached. The menu was good. We shared the table with other people that were good company.
Attending Fawlty Towers felt so realistic. Audience participation was wonderful
Whether you're a fan of the show or never saw it before, you'll love this dining experience. Be prepared to become a part of the show. The actors were spot on and the food was even good.
Absolutely amazing. The actors had every nuance perfected. From hand gestures, to tonal inflections they had me believing I was in Basil's hotel.
The mini stories were combined with the dinner perfectly.
Service was rude and abrupt as expected!
I would imagine that if you haven't seen the TV show you may not enjoy this as much.
It's been a long time since Fawlty Towers was on TV but we have long memories! I booked this experience for my husband and I and I didn't really tell him what it entailed double the fun for me!
I had no mascara or eyeliner left on my eyes after the first ten minutes in the 'hotel bar'. Extremely witty and so wonderful how the ad-libs and the scripted lines flowed together seamlessly. These actors are not 'impressionists' or 'impersonators', as made clear when I booked, but the physical acting and the characterisation was absolutely spot on!
I did cry laughing from start to finish!
The food is a typical British menu from the 70's but the execution was absolutely delicious! Carrots cut into school-dinner circles have never tasted so good - and there was more 'jus' than 'gravy'!
Can't give too much away, of course, but if you have any sort of affection for Fawlty Towers then this will be a joyous experience for you!
I can't recommend it highly enough!
The show was wonderful: well done and hilarious! The food was weak at best.
My father and I are both huge fans of the show, so we were both delighted at how accurate the portrayals of Basil/Sybil/Manuel were to their real life counterparts John Cleese/Prunella Scales/Andrew Sachs. We joked that the thearte is called Faulty Towers to avoid copyright claims with the actual name of the show being Fawlty Towers... Of the three actors, I'd have to say that the lady playing Sybil came across as the most realistic, followed by the man who played Manuel, and then Basil. However, I must commend the young man who played Basil, as he was completely in character e.g. when my father asked Basil where he is from, he incredulously responded Swanage, which is Basil's hometown as revealed only once in passing by Manuel in the Communications Problems episode...you would have to have seen all episodes multiple times to recall that!. The meal was fine, and the acting was top notch! Highly recommended for any fan of Fawlty Towers!
We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner show. It was in a smaller venue than normal but that made it more personal. Laughed a lot and the meal was quite good also. Highly recommend this show if your time allows.
If you're a fan of the TV show you would love this! Food was adequate but not outstanding but that's not why you go to this--entertainment was stellar and so much fun!
We went yesterday lunchtime at the amba hotel in London ...had a great time food was not the highest standard but you go for the show not the food we had something to eat before we went in which helped.. having laughed so much for a long time..felt the barman was slightly swamped to begin with and had quite a queue and no plain cider at the bar but once in he did a great job ...actors were great and in character at all times .well worth it .
A great experience. We all enjoyed the acting and food. Shame Polly had not be there
We had a great time, much better than I had thought. The lunch was really nice, the entertainment was non stop, witty, lively and the actors really embraced their iconic roles. What a lovely way to spend a wet Sunday afternoon. If you loved Fawlty Towers you will love this.
Spot-on acting and comedic timing brings the dysfunctional staff of Fawlty Towers absolutely to life. Taking place upstairs in the Amba Hotel at Charing Cross, it's easy to get to from anywhere in London and the bar next to the theater opens early. There are also the complimentary drinks in the Faulty Towers Bar which doubles a cloak-room, and this is where the show actually begins. There isn't a dress code but be aware that if you dress too casually as I apparently did, Basil is sure to make you the butt of his sarcastic humor before the show moves to the dining room. Once he gets you in his sights, and you prove clever and a good sport, he will return to you time and time again. Basil and Manuel work the room continuously, creating one mushrooming mishap after another and involving everyone in the act, sometimes to their dismay. Sybil acts to change the energy between all of the classic skits and excels as the foil for Basil, who is obviously terrified of her steely gaze, shrill voice and snorting laugh. Food and drink flow freely, sometimes ending up on the guest, but it's all great fun and the crowd we attended with laughed uproariously throughout the performance. The food was entirely acceptable, especially for such a show, but the entertainment provided was unparalleled in it's execution and these actors deserve much credit for their performances.
The actual show was great, although booked through Viator and our names were not on the list when we got there so we nearly lost out. Luckily the actual cast managed to accommodate us. Very funny. We had 3 generations with us and all would like to go again
I dont want to spoil any jokes, but this was a very funny evening, with all actors wonderfully bringing to life a typical disasterous dinner in fawlty towers. The food is also fine! If there is a vagatarian around you will get some special attention from Basil...
Hilarious from start to finish, great actors and the 70's style dinner was very good.
Real scream Basil, Sybil and Manuel in top form they all worked very hard and it was an excellent Birthday surprise !!
