We really enjoyed our night out at the show. We chose the option that came with wine and tapas and there was certainly plenty of food - the food was good but not great. However the entertainment was amazing - the energy and the passion was really inspiring. I only wish they had a little bit of information on each... More

Saw this show in early May. We booked through a site on Tripadvisor. We got a table for two which cost about £60 in sterling.This wasn't worth the price for just an hours show. We were waiting for part two after an hour only to discover that the show was over.

This was an amazing and authentic Flamenco show! So glad we were able to attend! We were given a free entrance coupon to the area where the dancing takes place and our wonderful hostess from Salsa and co. B n B booked the show for us. We heard that the food was not the greatest so we just went for... More

I was very reluctant to go here as I thought it would be the usual tourist trap. For one thing,Flamenco comes from the South of Spain and so has no cultural connection with Barcelona or Catalonia. For this reasonI had pretty low expectations when we arrived. We had good seats near the stage and we were already on the second... More

Went there for the dinner and show package offer by a business partner. Was obviously not able to tell how I felt about the place during the dinner, but now finally I can say what I think:). The show was interesting and the dancers especially very talented. The group was working as a team and having fun by it, which... More

We bought our package in advance for 5 people and we specified that we have two vegetarians to get their vegetarian's Tapas menu when booking. When we got there they served us their regular tapas, which were very low quality tapas, when we asked for what we requested the waiter rudely responded to us and said that "now you change... More

We booked the tapas meal after seeing on trip advisor the good comments. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was tasty and very plentiful! The show was really fun and the dancers were fantastic. Would definitely recommend a visit? Also got to walk around the Poble Espanyol at dusk which was beautiful and had some fantastic views.

This was the best thing we did in Barcelona by miles. We booked a tapas evening with show. The service was friendly and efficient and the food, though not spectacular, was good quality and there was plenty of it. We got a jug of sangria, mineral water, lots of tapas, desert and coffee. The show is the thing you really... More

We got a great bottle of wine and the tapas were plentiful and delicious!!! I couldn't have asked for more.... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
