We saw the professional Flaminco show in the city centre the night before, it was amazing. For this show, we were headed into a cave, subjected to speakers, so loud that they caused pain, and watched about 30 minutes of mediocre dancing by dancers who really didn't care. The free drink was watery and delivered with attitude. It felt like... More

It was great to have this experience, that dancers and musicians gave a good gypsy flamenco show in the cave. We were seated up front next to the performers. They yawned, seemed distracted and annoyed by their guests. I guess it gets old when you perform over and over, but, it felt uncomfortable feeling like they hated us being there.

Dragged up to a cave in the hills above Granada was a bit different, but the food was good and the entertainment was really wonderful. Magical music, hosts involved the audience. We would definitely do again!

I was really disappointed with this show. I was hoping for a really lovely authentic experience, as I had booked it as a surprise for my boyfriend (who is also Spanish flamenco musician) on our holiday. The caves and the performers were extremely authentic but the whole place was run as a money-making machine. Coachloads of American and Japanese tourist... More

We went a night on May 24 to this zambra show. The cave is located along the Camino de Sacromonte, Cueva de La Rocio features two different caves plus a large outdoor terrace with fabulous views of the Alhambra and Generalife. The flamenco shows of approximately 45 minutes include between six to eight different artists. Seating is on each side... More

The cave is set in a neat little neighborhood with amazing views of La Alhambra. We bought tickets online easily. It was cheaper than the recommended Flamenco show in Seville. You go into a long narrow room and he dancers dance down the middle. It was so cool! Their skirts hit my knee as they twirled. They seemed to have... More

This place was popular. We totally enjoyed the show in a cave. A very special event for us. The performers were full of energy and passion. One drink per person was offered. The cave was packed with no empty seat. We walked back to our hotel in the city. The walk at night with the shining moon over your head... More

Loved it! I was hesitant to go because I had heard it was so touristy, but I'm so glad I went for it. Where else can you see flamenco in a cave? It was really great, so fun! And the staff at La Rocio is super friendly, making it an even better experience. Go!

The flamingo dance was spectacular. Sat on the side wall about half way in the room. the seating arrangements may be tight but it gives the audience a up close view of the performance. You can literally feel the energy and intensity broadcast by these artists. One of the more senior dancers was absolutely amazing. For those who are interested... More

It was a very good experience in general. We have been here twice and it has always been very enjoyable. Perfect for drinks and show, I don't think I would dine here as there are so many bars and restaurants on the way to the Albayzin
