We had a great night at El Tablao de Carmen. The food and sangria were delicious and the flamenco was very entertaining. Staff were friendly and welcoming and spoke good English which was great because my Spanish is embarrassing! You can get there easily by walking from Pl. Espanya Metro station (though you'll need GPS or a map). And, on... More

TIP: Get to the village early and take a look around - you get free admission and it's fun to look at all the little shops. We had a glass of beer and enjoyed some small fried fish while the sun set - quite lovely. There is a lot to see - from the recreated buildings representing the different areas... More

Enjoyed the show and dancing was very good. However, the food and service was very bad and possibly the worst food we had during our 9 days stay in Spain.

The singing and dancing are unbelievably excellent, the power and tragedy portrayed was breathtaking. I found the show captivating and the wine delicious, I would definitely go again.

Reviews from trip advisor did not disappoint. All seats in the house are good seats and we loved the show. Food was also very good. We got the complete dinner, which was served with a bottle of wine and a pitcher of sangria. A great evening!

Really enjoyed the flamenco show itself however, we went for the show & tapas option and the food was some of the worst we sampled in Barcelona (perhaps a bad day). Based on my experience I would avoid eating at the venue as there are much better restaurants around.

Absolutely fantastic. The show itself was incredible; the performers' enthusiasm was clear to see and we were left transfixed by their passion which was utterly mesmerizing. I could have listened to the singers all night, they had such beautiful voices and despite the slightly touristy feel to the venue and set-up, the show itself felt really authentic. We opted for...

Absolutely brilliant! We visited on a Saturday evening and what a night we had, just wish it had lasted longer! Beautiful music and dancing and singing, and an abundance of food and sangria.
