We visited the restaurant after a walk around the area which we hoped would be less of a tourist trap than the plaza Nuevo. Boy were we wrong. The food here is terrible and the waiter so rude he actually corrected my husbands Spanish. Way to make tourists feel welcome man!! We were going to watch the show but had... More

Un espectaculo aterrador!! Carisimo!! y la sangria es agua endulzada. Una experiencia mala y muy comercial, con bailarines que bostezan en el escenario, con flojera y sin pasion por el flamenco o la danza. Lo peor, sin respeto por la gente que paga 30 euros para verles, 30 euros tirados a la basura! Horrible show! Super expensive and the sangria... More

Ok, the dancing is wonderful with moments of brilliance but as an experience very disappointing; crowded with maybe 80 others into a cavern-like room with many, particularly Americans, who insisted on continually using flash photography and holding up cameras to video the dance - crass behaviour which highly distracting to others in the audience and, to me, disrespectful to the...

With my rating, I don't want to take anything away from the dancers, singers, guitar players, or any other performers -- they were all excellent, as is the atmosphere of the cave itself. The problem is that's there's too many people, the whole enterprise is too commercial, and as a result the service and your enjoyment of the show slips... More

We visited Granada recently and were advised to see a Flamenco show at the Cuevas de Sacromonte. "The real thing" in Flamenco is nearly impossible to find nowadays as it is almost all geared for tourists, as we were told by many locals, but this is as real as it gets. Big buses filled with tourists arrive in Savcromonte by... More

After seeing 3 wonderful flamenco shows in Madrid and Seville, i was really looking forward to the authentic flamenco show by gypsies in their caves i Granada but was so disappointed. Short dances, no passion, just a money making show and i thought quite unprofessional. If you are looking for good flamenco, villa Rosa in Madrid and Bail in burritos... More

I had heard a rumour about the "Cave Gypsies" in Granada, and their raw Flamenco performances, so with a basic idea of where to go - we headed off to the caves. We came upon this place, it looked busy and the atmosphere was exciting! We paid 20Euro and got a show and a beverage. The show was fantastic -... More

Somehow its like a Disney attraction. You feel like you are running to see the show. One show ends, then the other start. The employees are a little rough, its a really impersonal experience. On the other hand the show itself is enjoyable. Not the real thing but acceptable.
