Note that the show evolves over the course of weeks; so we attended the 69th review. The numbers start at 21 hours, however if you want to dine there, remember to come well before that. The menu at € 23 is very good. Boards of cheese or charcuterie are also offered. A part of the room is reserved for tables where spectators will watch the show, while the remaining part consists of the stands of the usual circus.
