Worth going to see

We were hesitant about going to see a Flamenco show in a city that really isn't famous for the Flamenco (albeit in Spain). The venue is situated off the busy La Rambla. Although we chose the 6:30pm show there was not a chair available in the small theatre. The show itself lasts approximately an... read more

This is just a review of the food as unfortunately we didn't stay for the show as the thought of waiting 1.5 hours sitting and not eating didn't appeal. From what we could hear the show sounded quite good but the reason I say 'hear' is because it was behind closed doors next to the eating area. We were mislead... More

We began with an excellent buffet, displayed very attractively, with many kinds of appetizing food, in a very attractive restaurant area. The staff were excellent, and very friendly. Then we were taken into a theater, where we were treated to a fantastic flamenco performance. I would not have believed that feet could move so quickly. The quality of the show... More

You will not regret coming to the table Cordobes. The food buffet is full with authentic Spanish food, endless sangria + beer, and exceptional service. The show was amazing. If you dine in first, you will get priority seating. Loved it. I strongly recommend you to go to Tablao Cordobes.

I went with my mom because I took her as a surprise, 'cause I wanted to try something different, and we really enjoyed! We are spanish and at the beginning we thought that this is something just for tourists, but we really liked it. If you want to know more about the spanish culture you have to try at least... More

So simple show as it didn't tell any story. Dancers' clothes were dull and old!! There were no microphones so singers were shouting rather than singing!!. I expected to see fans and flowers in dancers' hands but the show materials were poor. the hall is too small and stuffed with chairs. My ticket included a soft drink. When i asked... More

First and foremost the people are the nicest people. They took the time to talk to us, explain the menu and the show, took pictures of our group and emailed it to us. The food is buffet with everything ham, salmon, paella, veal, chicken, desserts, tapas and ever flowing sangria, beer and soda. This was followed by the Flamenco show... More

If you want to be in the center of all the action this is the place to go. The food was delicious, the show was entertaining, and the staff was very pleasant. When you leave on to La Rambla Street you are in the heart of the city. The city doesn't get going until after 10 pm so we walked... More

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
