If she liked flamenco with a lot of foot stomping the answer would be yes. Of the 4 dancers only 2 showed some hints of what flamenco can be like. Avoid this tourist trap in the Poble Espanyol at all cost. The food is not very good either.

We ordered the tapas menu with the show - the perfect size meal for us. Food was excellent and not too much. The Sangria, as at most places in Barcelona, was wonderful. Then the show started....

Absolutely amazing. The dancers were so passionate and I've never seen dancing like this. One of the young dancers moved his feet so fast it looked like he was floating across the stage!

I had to go with a friend that was visiting the city from UK and bought the tickets. In my opinion it is outrageous because Flamenco is not from Barcelona... And Barcelona is not Seville... This is a tourist attraction for visitors that have not got a clue of Catalan culture and Barcelona identity. I felt ashamed because the quality... More

I visited El Tablao de Carmen for a friends hen night and I was extremely impressed. We opted for tapas which was delicious. The dancing was extremely impressive and they managed to allow my friend up on stage which made an excellent evening even more special. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
