Absolutely incredible to witness people living life off the grid on the outskirts of a major city. If recommend going with a tour group and wearing good walking shoes as it is a bit of a trek. Worth it ten times over though.

Our family went for an evening zambra gitana flamingo show. You can have dinner and show or as we did just the dinner where they come and pick you up at your hotel and bring you back. The venue is very small which makes for a great and intimate experience as you literally sit around the room with the flamingo... More

It wasn't for the food but the dinner was a convenient compulsory before the show. The restaurant was a tight space with a single door entrance and no windows, made to simulate a cave atmosphere. Located in an historical part of Granada, right opposite the hills of La Alhambra, it's a nostalgic area. Narrow streets of cobble stones!!! La Alhambra... More

We went here for dinner and for the flamenco show. A small bus fetched us at downtown Granada, and carried us here going through the Albaicín narrow streets. First we had dinner at one of the caves. We had reasonable food and wine, with good and friendly service. Then, you go into other cave for the flamenco show. Both musicians... More

The show is terrible, there is no emotions from the artists and they dance bad like robots. The singer is bad and guitar man also play very middling. Not recommended, save your money. Ужасное фламенко, просто жалко потраченных денег. Место просто туристический развод. Не советую никому категорически.

Yes the cave was filled with Japanese tourists and yes some of the staff may seem rude (have you not been to a restaurant in Granada before?). However, the night I was there the quality of the dancing, singing and guitar playing was extremely good. One dancer was an extremely beautiful morena, another a bit stern and older and looked...

My husband and I disagreed on th grading of the place - he wanted me to give it only three points, I wanted four. This place was recommended by a friend who is herself originally from Granada. The place offers three things (1) traditional flamenco dances performed by the locals (2) an unusual venue (a cave) (3) a drink. The... More

We were astounded at the amazing flamenco show, put on by this family of gypsies in their caves, that were once their home. The show was brilliant, so entertaining and fun. The dancing was unbelievable, footwork so fast, the mother (who must have been 70) was sheer brilliance on her own, yet alone the young lad and girl who were... More

We had been to a fantastic show the night before, this performance may have been alright if we hadn't watched that performance, but the attraction of flamenco in a cave lost a lot of appeal, because the area was so small the dancers had no room to move, they could only dance up and down on a small area between...
