This was our exposure to flamenco which was very enjoyable. The performance were good but not spectacular. The setting was intimate, but eh service was poor. The Madrid Card added value (a second drink) was almost ignored untilI I mentioned Rick Steves had recommended the venue.

Each show was quite different - Our first visit in 2011 was very focused on the dance with the musicians taking the backseat. During my most recent visit- late August 2014 the show was more focused on the music with a "side order" of dancing. My understanding is that they have different "Flamenco troupes" that perform so you really won't... More

We had tapas and wine at 7.30. Good service and atmosphere although the restaurant was quiet, given that people do not eat so early. The tapas were delicious and wine excellent. Prices moderate. At the same time we booked for the 9 pm show. After our meal, a waiter showed us to our table in an adjacent room where the... More

Show is OK but too avant garde for our taste. Definitely not a typical flamenco show. Corn rows, a fiddler and a novice, foreign guitar player; not what we expected nor have seen before. Not worth the price of admission. If you opt for the meal and show, the meal is also not worth the price. Service was good, though.

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
