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

We didn't have too much time so just wanted to see a short and quick show which was what this place provided. Music was good and so was the 10 minutes of flamenco. There are obviously grander and better places to watch flamenco throughout Spain, but this wasn't bad.

If you're a flamenco fan and looking for a real show, then this is definitely NOT for you. If you're like me and just wanted to see what flamenco is like for a low cost, then this is perfect. In and out of there in 30mins and continue with your holiday. I would hv rated this better if the lady... More

We were in here on a Thursday night with a mostly older, mostly Asian crowd who blatantly ignored the no flash photography warnings, broke glasses and generally stood in everyone else's way. The dancing was about 10 mins of the 30 minute show and for €10 each was worth it. A lot of hotels offer it for €8 euro we... More

We enjoyed Los Tarantos. Very nice performance, in the exact length for us to stay enthusiastic and not get bored or tired. Highly recommended especially with teenagers.

We went for the flamenco show based on our guidebook's recommendation. Los Tarantos was touted for having a long history and being a more "authentic" experience, but that was not the feel in the tiny space at all. While they advertise a 30-minute show, the musicians came out late, spent five minutes tuning instruments and dealing with static in the... More

Off the Ramblas is a square which has several restaurants and a few clubs that have live music. Los Tarantos is a small but comfortable venue and has two shows 8pm or 9:30 nightly. It is very wise to line up early to make sure that you can get a front row seat. As the club is not that large... More
