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

My wife and I tried to go here but the cab driver was not able to find it and dropped us off in an area where he thought it may be. After an hour of running around and asking several locals including another cab driver, we were unable to find it. We have no cell service so we were unable... More

The vegetarian meal was great too. Service was prompt and staff were friendly. Then came the show. We we're enthralled for 1 hour by fantastic flamenco... More

Fantastic meal, scrumptious Sangria and a show to blow your mind! The energy, vitality and passion of the dancers was undeniable and even had my very stoic husband tapping along in time. To hear from him - that was pretty amazing' is a true 5 star praise for this wonderful attraction. Not to mention the amazing village this attraction is... More

We only found this place because of the reviews on trip advisor. We booked in advance and really enjoyed the evening. We had the tapas and show package and the tapas were nice...everyone gets theirs at the same time prior to the snow and they include dessert. They provide a large jug of Sangria. It you have the alternate choice... More
