Just came back from this show. We had wine and sagria before the show at very good price. For the show all I can say is breathtaking. Amazing. One of the highlights of my whole trip in Madrid.

Went to this show and had dinner before based on reviews. Although I was a bit nervous because some recent reviews were not that great. But the dinner was wonderful with good service and because we had diner there we got excellent seats right in the front row practically touching the stage. The performance was excellent. There were 2 guitar... More

We found this on trip advisor and simply walked in to book. The lovely lady we dealt with didn't speak a word of English but with my limited spanish some hand gestures and lots of laughing we made a reservation for dinner and a show. We had 3 small dishes to share and then the cheese cake (must have). After... More

I went to a few other flamenco shows and this was the most authentic. We had dinner first at the restaurant and then the show started shortly after. During the show you can order drinks. We order sangria and it was great. Nothing looked choreographed. Everything was from the heart and real.. which is what you wanna see when you're... More

Absolutely loved the show! The guitar and dancing was amazing. However, we booked our tickets far in advance, and the seat that they gave us was on the far right of the stage, next to the curtain. My friend was hit with the curtain every time someone entered and exited the stage. We are not picky people, we were just... More

Ok. So I read the different reviews before going and decided that I might not enjoy the show that much, so I went with an open mind. It was great to sit in between two Spanish people who told us that this was the best flamenco dancing that they had ever seen. Apparently, there are different types depending on the... More

The food in the restaurant was good, but not exceptional. However, the show afterwards was a real treat. This place does not put on regular shows with a set crew, but rather hosts different artists in their space, resulting in a truly authentic experience--it sort of reminded me of going to listen to jazz at Buddy Guy's in Chicago. Based... More

I am only giving this attraction 2 stars, because the performance was really disappointing. Long pauses in the show with nothing happening, then long, boring guitar solos (of music that was NOT authentically Flamenco, but rather, newly composed by the guitarist!), and finally, a bit of mediocre dancing. There was actually an "intermission" of about 20 minutes in the supposedly... More

We went to Casa Patas because of several persons telling us that this is the place for real flamenco. How wrong they were! I have seen other (good) flamenco shows, and this was a total catastrophy. I'm not even sure I would call it a show! The "show" is announced to be 90 minutes long. It started with a ten-minute... More

We've been to Spain 6 times over the last decade and visited Casa Patas each time. The flamenco is invariably breathtaking in its intensity and skill. My daughter has studied flamenco for years and comes out deeply impressed by the artistry of the performers. My wife and I, less knowledgeable but also enthusiasts, were delighted by the performances. Guests with... More
