We went here for our friends 34th wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The meal was booked in advance and we went for the tapas which was excellent. We also had a couple of jugs of Sangria and a bottle of Moet (43 euros). The performers, well they certainly looked they enjoyed it. Have never seen feet... More

While it may seem cheesy, this was enjoyable and would serve as a good introduction to the art forms of flamenco music for someone seeing it for the first time. The tapas menu was very generous. You would not need more food than this.

This was very nice, no need to do the full meal...you will have plenty of food with the tapas menu. The restaurant is set inside an attraction that gives a taste of all of the areas of Spain. I didn't realize this, or we would have gone earlier than our arranged time. Having tickets for the flamenco allows you entrance... More

This dinner show was easy to book on-line from the UK. The village setting is particularly attractive and the later show finishes in perfect time to wander down to see the last 45 minutes of the wonderful fountains. I would not really rate the food though it was adequate and the drink was freely available. The dancers and musicians were... More

While flamenco is not Catalan, it is important to Spain. The music and dancing were fantastic! The performers even did some improvisation and you could tell they were really in to it. We ordered the tapas menu and was plenty of food. Yes, this is touristy, but it is well worth it. Tip: Don't try to map this, just map... More

If you want a taste of flamenco and Spanish culture, I definitely recommend coming here! The food is good, you can choose to have just drinks, tapas or the full 3 course meal. We went for the full meal, you get a selection of tapas to start, a main course then a dessert. They also offer a vegetarian menu but... More

Had to see some dancing when visiting Barcelona, so my partner and I chose this place as the reviews were so good. The food was ok, nothing amazing but that wasn't why we were there.... The dancing was excellent, properly full on and full of passion and energy, no feeling that this was just another show for them. Whist a... More

The restuarant offers different eating options that you can chooze from, Better to check out the website. The singing and dancing is great, small group of seven artists perform, Dancing is really good, small stage, close and personnal show. Little bit cramped and small space between the tables. This is worthwhile to visit to get a good show of Flamenco... More

I know there are other places in Spain to see Flamenco, but it you are in Barcelona and limited in your travels as we were, this is a good place to go. Beautiful walking on the way there. I would reserve the tapas rather than the dinner, as they weren't much different except in price. Even my 13 year old... More
