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

We went with our four children (aged 6 to 11) and enjoyed fantastic food and Sangria and then a wonderful lively show that left everyone in high spirits. This place was recommended by our hotel but it was the right choice for us as you get to see the Flamenco in very close proximity and in authentic surroundings.

This was one of our highlights of our Granada trip after Al-Hambra. We arrived at the location in Sacromonte as a part of the tour arranged with the help of our Hotel. The performance is inside an authentic Gypsy Cave in Sacromonte. The place is decorated nicely. We were seated and then choice of drinks was asked and then started... More

Note that you do not go there for a drink nor a meal. You go there for Flamenco. It won't be comfy, you'll be a bit squeezed. But what a show! Flamenco is not only a dance. From the guitarist to the singers and of course the dancers, all the artists were amazing. Intense, fierce, gipsy, powerful, touching... Not to... More

We joined a busload of people (they picked us up at our hotel) for this show, which had been recommended to us by a real live native of Granada. We liked it. It was high energy, good dancers (actually, there seemed to be an A-team and a B-team), good and loud musicians and singers (I mean, you're in a cave... More

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...

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
