Lonely Planet review

Inside a 19th-century Spiegeltent (an opulent Belgian traveling-circus tent) top circus talent flies overhead, a celeb-diva croons and clowns pull wacky stunts as you dig into a surprisingly good five-course dinner or Sunday lunch. This ain't no B-grade dinner theater: a 'clown-wrangler' seeks out world-class talent in Europe and Asia, and the acts, menu and performers are refreshed quarterly. Former stars have included Joan Baez and Broadway's Liliane Montevecchi. Dress for dinner, and arrive early to see the over-the-top harmonium and boutique selling tiaras and ostrich-feather opera gloves (ideal if you're underdressed). Expect audience participation – especially if you're a looker. Reservations essential.
