the place is really simple and typical, the staff was very sympatic. There is 2 show per night: 8pm or 10:30pm. You are not forced to eat, you can just come to see the show is 30€ per personne with a drink. As our table was just below the stage, it was an impressive show with vibrating voice and good... More

Food was excellently prepared and the service was great. The flamenco show started out low key, but got progressively better, with an absolutely prime example of really flamenco by both male and female dancers. The room itself was quite small and unfortunately that night was overloaded by noisy, disrespectful, picture-taking oriental tourists, who pissed everybody off!. Cost is 200+ euros... More

It was a very colorful show, the dancers were really good. The food was very delicious, and the services were good. There was a delay, we reserved places for the show of 19:00, but they let us in at 19:15, and the show started at 20:00. We had time to finish our food.

Dancing is just ok. But all services were very bad. The food tasted very bad but very expensive. Watiers served with bad temper. They wounln't give you any smile if you hadn't orderd any food. more than 100 people just sat in a very small room which wer narrow and crowd. That was the worst experience in Madrid.

We were recommended to go to this performance by our hotel concierge as he said it was good and cheaper than another performance nearby. The show itself is 30 euro a person and was OK, but the food was the worse we experienced on our whole vacation. 30 euros for a seafood paella that was pathetic. The ingredients were not... More

This was my friends first visit to Madrid and she wanted to see a Flamenco show, I had seen this show many years ago and it still recommended in the DK guide. I was totally disappointed as was she, the performance was stale and uninspiring the staff were surly and unhelpful. I would not recommend this place at all.

Looking for a traditional flamenco show? To my view, this is the place! The food was not outstanding maybe due to the fact that I was with a group and the menu was pre-ordered. Otherwise, the performance was remarkable, really puts you in a traditional atmosphere. It is definetely worth seeing.

Excellent flamenco show at a good price. Great dancing and music with a very authentic vibe. Enjoy just the show with complimentary snacks, or have your meal here and make the night even more special. Service was great!

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
