Buy tickets in advance and come 30 minutes early. We had read reviews before we went there and followed this advise, which is good as there is a queue and it's first come first to choose seating. About half the show is talented guitar playing, drumming and singing. The other half also has amazing flamenco dancing. We sat on the... More

We went to see flamenco but we only saw bad quality. The singers were bad amateur, the dancers did something that was not flamenco. The sound amplifier wasn't work in the all room. The sangria was bad also. Maybe was bad luck!

Considering the cost of the show was just 10€ without any food or drinks...we thought of trying it out as its situated on placa reial near las ramblas...although the show lasts for 30 mins, it was quite good....the performers did a good job and we were happy with it....although one can also try tabao de carmen in poble espanyol which...

This show is a good introduction to Flamenco. Though there are 3 shows/day (20.30, 21.30, 22.30 hrs) tickets are sold out pretty quickly and it is well worth to buy tickets in advance. Highly recommend getting there early as seating is first come first serve basis. The 30 minute show starts with the playing of soulful guitar and drums and... More

Eye opener, Great dancing and singing. If you don't want to do the full 3hr dinner experience and want a sample of Flamenco dancing, then this is the place to go.

For ten euros this has got to be a must see. It's somewhere everyone who travels to Barcelona will surely spend some time and it's so hassle free I cannot see why any casual traveller wouldn't stop in. We joined the queue at 9.15 for the 9.30 showing and strolled right in. It's obviously not the most authentic experience but... More

Price was great, location very good. Show runs every hour and last for 30-35 minutes, the one we saw, "El Bailaor" (the male dancer) left everything on the stage, it was very intense and he made a great performance. It was just the right dosage, like a little yet very good dessert after a good meal. Highly recommended.

This show was recommended by our hostel. We arrived 30 minutes early and started standing in line. It got pretty full at the end, so make sure you arrive early. The show was very moving and it was over very quickly. A good introduction to Flamenco.

We didn't want a full evening with dinner as some places offer so 30 mins for 10E seemed ideal. Convenient location on Placa Reial near the Liceu Metro stop. We attended the 10.30pm performance and didn't have to line up as we arrived only 10 minutes in advance but by then it was standing room only and quite crowded. There... More
