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.

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

Get off the beaten path, and see a flamenco show where the locals go. The restaurant feels intimate and private. The food is great and the show was tremendous. There are only a few tourists, and the majority of guests are locals. If you want great seats, make reservations in advance. Come early and enjoy tapas before the show.

The show was wonderful, a really great spectacle. We had dinner in the restaurant first and were prepared for it to be very average, but in fact it turned out to be very good although far from the best food we had eaten in Madrid. But the show made up for it all!

Thrilling, up close seating (we reserved a month in advance and sat at the edge of the stage) 90 minute show that seemed only 10 minutes. Beautiful guitar, violin, singing and a weekly rotation of flamenco dancers. Ticket includes a drink each (although the waitress never brough me mine). Dress cool---the room is close and hot. The dancing is amazing!

From looking at the online video(s)/photo(s), I am thinking that we were there on the wrong evening with the B team performing. The guitarists were good - but no violin, no stand-up bass, no other instruments. Even the dresses of the performers were not so impressive as the photo(s) posted just a few days after we visited (April 4 or... More

Not bring an expert in flamenco, the performance was surely impressive. The dance was great, and the singers were great too. Strongly recommend it.
