A tour guide took us here when we asked for local haunts vs tourist joints. It was so rad and definitely glad we went!

Even if you dont know French the show is worth it! Amazing experience! After the show is finished you can have some beer and food in their pub which is also full of puppets and magical atmosphere.

I went only for a beer (between the shows it is a pub), and I found the place very welcoming and authentic, a bit schabby chic. You could see some of the puppets, and meet a local cat.
